The idol star gained tremendous popularity and love following her appearance on 'Produce 101', plus her promotions in IOI. In fact, Kim Se Jung can be considered one of the hottest girl group members in Korean entertainment today.
With this in mind, her fans expected Kim Se Jung to continue on her success and soar up to be a top star. Unfortunately, they believe her label, Jellyfish Entertainment, is doing a poor job in making that possible.
After IOI's official disbandment, Kim Se Jung has been promoting in the rookie group Gugudan. The girls recently made a comeback with "A Girl Like Me", but the song is not doing so well. Kim Se Jung managed to reach #1 on the charts with her solo track "Flower Road" but failed to achieve similar success with Gugudan's comeback. Currently, many netizens are calling "A Girl Like Me" and the group, "a total flop."
Many rather believe that Kim Se Jung should've formed a new group with Gugudan members Kim Na Young and Kang Mina, or should've been promoted more as the center of Gugudan.
Angry at Jellyfish Entertainment's "poor management", netizens commented, "The label sucks at their job. It's so unfortunate. I was looking forward to the Kim Na Young, Kang Mina, and Kim Se Jung trio...", "What I don't understand is that Jellyfish made Se Jung promote in Gugudan but she doesn't really stand out in the group right now. They would've seen better outcomes if they made Se Jung stand out more. You know many tuned into Gugudan to see Se Jung..", "There's no answer for Gugudan", "The label did a terrible job. They should've expanded Se Jung's solo fandom and then made her debut in a group."
