Seventeen is accused of giving away gifts from a fan to other people. 


SEE ALSO: Seventeen perform to 5,500 fans in Bangkok


A netizen claiming to be a fan of the boy group revealed that the customized wristbands s/he gave to Seventeen was regifted to another person. 




It's claimed that the fan saw the customized wristbands on the Instagram of the producer who closely works with Seventeen. The producer posted the photos of the wristband, and wrote, "What I found at the studio... Ha cute boys #Seventeen #Gift"







In response to the netizen's post, Seventeen is gaining great criticism as they were also recently under fire for rudely responding to fans, and referring to them as their bread and butter (income source). Pledis Entertainment has spoken up and emphasized that Seventeen treasures their fans. However, the group is continued to be criticized. Many Carats (Seventeen fans) have even turned their backs on the group.

How can they get accused? 1. Pledis staffs are using there stuffs 2. The staffs might have been using them again 3. There using there own money to buy stuffs instead of the staff 4.They have tons of gifts already and the items may have been the same.I have a theory: what if this is another Pledis staff doing? Or The fan just claimed it but din't actually send it.

I still love them

Ya'll butt hurted fans need to know that they cannot keep all nor wear all of the things you guys got for Seventeen. They might just store it away and collect dust. Honestly they don't want to put it to waste so that's probably why they are giving it out to their friends. Just chill. We all know they will treasure the things that were sent or gave to them by fans, but sometimes they can't keep all of it cause there are just to many. Just my opinion .

If it was multiple things, maybe re gifting would be a problem. BUT IT WAS ONE THING😒

Gdragonbabay Saturday, March 25, 2017

Haha just you watch their comebacks gonna flop! Ungrateful nugus!

Hellotreasure Gdragonbabay Sunday, March 26, 2017

Only nugus get put on Instagram's story 🙄

To be honest what probably happened is that the producer just found them laying around the studio. The boys probably had them on their wrists and just took them off and set them down. Most likely, the producer found them, thought they were cool, put one on, and snapped a pic. Everyone is blowing this way out of proportion. Seventeen loves Carats... And the whole "bread and butter" thing was just a harmless joke that I'm sure they didn't mean offensively. People need to grow up and not take things so personally. I'm sure they didn't mean any harm behind any of it.

Everyone is getting so upset about allkpop's articles about Seventeen and don't seem to understand that they are under a controversy right now. Before I continue I would like to stress the fact that I am a Carat. I don't understand why people buy idols gifts just pay for the music and they'll be fine. Plus let's be real, as fans we are their source of income, just like Walmart or a department store the company and the group see us as income. I'm not saying they don't appreciate us but they know fans will pay for a show and they will follow through on that. Y'all need to get a grip and stop hating on allkpop for doing their darn job.

People hate all kpop because when they mention a "controversy" they bring up other ones that were already confirmed fake (like the one about throwing away fan letters) they they also only talk about the bad things and refuse to make or add to the article the truth to them (like on the giving fan's customized gifts to producer one, bumzu RIGHT AFTER posting the pic. said nvm it was not for him and seventeen wanted it back.) For the people who bandwagon hate just by reading allkpop articles, it just makes it worst because they don't care to look further into the problem.

bang_nay boomshakalakalva Saturday, March 25, 2017

Nothing about the scandal has been comfirmed fake though. Pledis is just ignoring everything

boomshakalakalva bang_nay Saturday, March 25, 2017

I'm talking about the fan letter one. The anti and the reporter already apologized for framing them. The bumzu one was confirmed by him right after he posted it that it wasnt a gift for him. The post-it one, well ofcourse Pledis can't confirm it. They don't watch svt write all the notes to their fans. Either way the fan asked for it (if it is true) she specifically wrote "real/true answer,jokes will be rejected" -what does he call her? wife? Also these "scandles" are being dug out from mansae era, like 2 years ago, so that adds to the rage of fans, like it took these people 2 years to be offended?

I think you misunderstand... AKP are just doing their jobs because this is a legitimate controversy. HOWEVER: they aren't doing their job well per say. Like this incident? RESOLVED IN 2015 for godsake, with Bumzu immediately clarifying that they just forgot it at his workplace! And fake fan letters? Allkpop literally reported that it was fake months ago-- and the idiots who fabricated the photo apologized. Yet in their recent article "seventeen has been known for throwing out fan letters in the past" LIKE WHAT THE F--?! That's terrible terrible reporting and it's their JOB. Like do it fucking properly. The only major controversy is the "bread and butter" comment, but there's no way for Pledis or Seungkwan to prove OR disprove the post it, because how would they remember? Seungkwan writes HUNDREDS of those at fansigns. The most Pledis could do was release a statement saying "Seventeen wouldn't write something like that and to trust them"

bang_nay boomshakalakalva Saturday, March 25, 2017

Where was that? Do you have a link?

boomshakalakalva bang_nay Saturday, March 25, 2017

http://www.allkpop.com/forum/threads/17s-scandals-all-explained-in-one-post.63440/#post-921573 Throwing away fan letters: The bag has a picture of another kpop boy group, one of the letters says "To Boo Seungkwan, From Lee Jihoon"- (both band members)the person framing them didn't even try. The bumzu gift- explained in link. Question. Why dislike my comment if all i'm trying to do is educate you?

bang_nay boomshakalakalva Saturday, March 25, 2017

Dislike your comment? What are you talking about? I didn't dislike your comment and if i did it wasn't on purpose. Chill dude

boomshakalakalva bang_nay Saturday, March 25, 2017

i just wanted to know, it's fine.

Shimera_K bang_nay Monday, March 27, 2017

They still need to become more professional tho ? in the "smile flower" teaser they literally wrote " after all teh controversie they are trying to make it up with carats" when in fact they were supposed to give us the MV after hitting a certain numebr of views in boomboom mv.

ntalie_12345 bang_nay Saturday, April 29, 2017

Actually the whole "bread and butter" thing with Seungkwan has been solved. OP showed that Seungkwan didn't write bapjul, but bangjul, which is literally translated as the string of a kite. It roughly means fate or predestined relationship in Jeju's satoori. This was his answer to "What am I (carat) to you" There's photos of the evidence on @scoupstatutu on Instagram

lolitea Saturday, March 25, 2017

WTH AKP? why so much hate against seventeen? are you frustrated or what? seriously, those boys have the most kind heart of the industry...

robin1 Saturday, March 25, 2017

I do not like Seventeen. lol

CaratLoyalty17 robin1 Monday, March 27, 2017

They honestly don't care because you are worth less then they are.

robin1 CaratLoyalty17 Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Awwww are you mad? Awwwwwww.

CaratLoyalty17 robin1 Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Nope, just stating the fact. :D

CaratLoyalty17 robin1 Wednesday, March 29, 2017

They don't stoop low to your level.

robin1 CaratLoyalty17 Thursday, March 30, 2017

Opinions aren't facts. Also, this article is 6 days fucking old. Move on with your life and stay mad.

CaratLoyalty17 robin1 Thursday, March 30, 2017

AHAHAHAHAAAA!!!! I'm Hella weakkkkkkkk... Hush mode, but okay Ma'am

immabeaunicorn Saturday, March 25, 2017

do yall really think that, with the amount of things they get, they are going to keep it all? I know they are grateful for us but be realistic, with all that stuff, they couldn't possibly fit that in their dorms. Lots of people out there can use the stuff that isn't practical for them.
