First the fans are angry at managers and other staffs at Pledis who allegedly stole gifts from fans clearly meant for Seventeen members.
"I thought my baby (Seventeen member) was using it well, but it seems like the manager is using it well."
"Because my baby likes cute stuff, I ordered a special limited edition, but I guess the manager also likes cute things..."
"...why is she (Pledis staff) using the bag that I custom-made for DK? When fans started to talk about it and take photos for evidence, she turned the bag around so it couldn't be seen...."
"...Korean beef that was given to Seventeen...Staffs ate it. Gift clothes for Junghan, they (staffs) took it and wore it. They also stole Hansol (Vernon)'s shoes (gift from a fan)."
The fans are also asking why Seventeen members who participated in the choreography making were not included in the copyrights list.
"When they were trainees, Wonwoo got scolded for using satoori (accent/dialect)...One of the staffs said, 'What did we say was going to happen if you use satoori? I'll see you after this..."
"Even when they were on AfreecaTV, they bet on something to eat with the producer and the kids won, and Hoshi, maybe because he's innocent, said thoughtlessly, 'Are they going to buy it for us and then take it out of our balance again?' and there was silence... He said it like last time on Afreeca TV, [Pledis] acted like they were going to buy it [for the boys], but then took it out of [the boys'] payments --"
"They once hit Seungkwan in the head, saying that he needs to lose weight. Seungkwan just lowered his head and said, 'Sorry.' How often do they hit them that Seungkwan seems to be used to it?"
[Screen shot above is from when Seventeen members were trainees; they were all minors]
"They aired this while fans were watching. How much more corporal punishment do they do when there's no cameras?"
One fan summarized all the mistreatments that she has witnessed:
"1. When I said I like a member who is not one of the visual lines, a staff asked, 'Why do you like him?'
2. They called Seungkwan a pig for eating alone
3. They scolded members for saying hello to fans
4. They scold members in front of fans
This is how Pledis treats Seventeen..."
Lastly, fans accuse Pledis of not investing enough into Seventeen.
"Have you ever seen a main vocal who uses a Samsung earphone as an in-ear monitor?"
"Pledis told Seventeen to use their own money to buy one..."
"So Seungkwan is using earphones instead of an actual in-ear microphone..."
Fans have continuously demanded Pledis Entertainment give explanations, but they have yet to have responded.
What do you guys think about Carats' claims?
