NU'EST fans are furious at the Pledis Entertainment CEO.


The label CEO runs the Instagram account @pledis_boss, where he posts updates and backstage photos of the Pledis Entertainment artists. However, one fan recently noticed that he had pressed 'Like' on a photo asking for support to the Brand New Music trainees.

The move upset an incredible number of NU'EST fans, who already feel like they have been wronged multiple times by Pledis Entertainment. Combined with the members saying on broadcast that the label thinks of them as failures, fans couldn't help but be upset. As a result, the @pledis_boss account has a flood of comments showing support for NU'EST.


What do you think about the situation?

I really love Nu'est since a few years ago, but after seeing them on Produce 101, the results are slightly upsetting and really hard to watch without heart aches. Their image is on down fall with them getting C and D rankings and with them not being able to learn the song and dance in episode 2... TT I hope they can get as much out of this show in terms of skills polishing (which they already have, just not shining yet) and attention. Fighting to Nu'est! I don't know how much time they are getting to learn the dance and singing, but even if they cannot learn completely, I would like to see them not giving up in middle of the piece. Too many of the contestants make giving up faces (I know it must be frustrating but) during the training, and I want them to dance fully even if they have to make up their own dance especially for the missions. Best of luck to all contestants.

I dont know if i should thank Pledis or be angry at them. Thanks for promoting Pristin and Seventeen and all. But i fking hate you for what you did to AfterSchool and Nuest...... Imagine if only they treat AS and Nuest better. 4 amazing groups taking over the Kpop world + they didn't promote Han Dong Geun.. Luckily he hit the roof with his old song out of nowhere.

yes it is true, they almost hit rock bottom. their albums didn't chart and sell well it's their last chance. but don't you worry they get judged more strictly than other trainees which is obvious because of the auditions

That awkward moment when After School members (even ex member) promote NUEST better than their CEO

i just don't understand why they do this? Nuest is popular and they're freakin veteran (i mean 5-6 years hello). rather than forcing them on some stupid survival show for rookies (not even rookies, they're like freshman) why can't they just promote like other artist? they do well, just work on your management -__-

Pledis did not force them to go on the show, it's Nuest's decision. But u know how screwed up the company's management is when the poor boys decided to this themselves ;-;

they did it themselves? how F'ed up is Pledis then, the boys got so desperate to participate in a rookie show. I'm not a big fan of Nuest but i listen to their song since "face", "Hello", and "SleepTalking". But i just felt sad hearing this

Was that the case? They've been somewhat quiet on that matter- I wonder if it's because (although he is Korean) he's still an American citizen, so perhaps he has a slightly different contract than the other members? It just surprised me that he was the only one who didn't have to go, which made it seem like to me that there might not have been an option for other members, unlike him. I'm only speculating, let me be clear, and I have no evidence to show proof to these ideas, they are just things I've wondered about. You'd think that as a group they'd try to do it together- but if it were me and I had the option, no offense, but I wouldn't do this. Something tells me the other members might not have had an option.

I think they said it was a health problem? But from what I've heard people were guessing that it might be bc of his past scandals that they decided he shouldn't be on the show
