The poster quipped, "Unless you're the very best, it seems they [SM] won't be choosing from 99'ers anymore. They even have trainees who are 2005'ers."
Upon viewing the list netizens have been making various comments from positive to negative:
"It seems SM is slowly coming back again."
"SM's been backstabbed by the Chinese numerous times, they can't get their senses together."
"SM is all about the visuals but these girls are so average."
"You guys are talking smack about them now, watch when they debut they will go from ugly ducklings to beautiful swans. Let's see how the comments are then!"
"It would be a real shame if those girls worked so hard but don't make it in the end. There's probably a lot of talented people out there....Wonder who's going to make it out alive."
