Fans are disappointed and some are evening turning their backs after Moonbin made an insensitive comment about ASTRO.

During Naver 'V' Live broadcast on June 14, the members jokingly said they're now a group of 5 because Rocky is going to promote solo with his nickname Rocky Swag. Rocky played along and asked fellow member MJ when he's going to make a solo comeback with his nickname. MJ responded that it'll be ready in about 5 years. 

The issue arose here when Moonbin suddenly commented, "5 years? Aren't we over in 5 years?"

The members looked greatly shocked by Moonbin's comment. Jinjin asked, "What? Why are we over?" Moonbin continued, "I mean, you know, technically we are over", implying how the group's contract with Fantagio is coming to an end in 5 years. 

Other members looked surprised and asked, "Why are we technically over..? How do you know..?''

Fans also expressed shock and disappointment toward Moonbin's insensitive comment. One fan commented, "Moonbin... you always said you want it to last forever and want to be in ASTRO again even if you are reborn but I was so shocked TTTT I don't know if something happened that made you say things like that but I don't think it's right for you to express it like that when there are fans.."

Netizens agreed and commented, "I can understand why the fans are upset..", "He shouldn't have said it like that even if it's the truth. It makes it look like they're all just business", "He was too honest", "Why did he say they're over. Does he not want to renew the contract as a group?", "Aigoo, the fans must be hurt."

You can watch Moobin's controversial comment and the members' reactions starting at 3:00 in the clip below.

"Does he not want to renew a contract?"Bro honestly as much as I want my groups to stay together forever it's just not realistic. If groups renew contracts, now what, another 7 years? For another 7 years they should've had a family already you know? They're going to be in their 30s!

i mean.....reality and the members seem to not mind. moonbin hs been doing this entertainment work for 8 years....i think everyone over reacted

I feel like people are always so sensitive and extra. MoonBin is a rookie still, he doesn't fully understand to process of this since he has never been through this! This is a joke and a misunderstanding...please don't make it seem like its more than a simple misunderstanding.

what.. it was just an offhand remark he didn't mean it seriously. if you watch the vid with translations then you'll understand

Snmiles Friday, June 16, 2017

To me this is not really news worthy. It's just that people were caught off guard because know what's to think about the end of the contract or that they have a contact ( fans). And moonbin said it. That doesn't me that they are not going to be together after five years. And I think he suprised himself also.

Fans are so selfish sometimes. Say what we want you to say. Do what we want you to do, and even if what you say is harmless, one little comment is enough for them to say,"I'm done with you!" Yet, you want them to give you everything. Their love lives, their attention, and the blood, sweat, and tears they bleed. Aren't you guys too much?

Actually nobody's saying they're done with him ... they're only saying they're disappointed he lied to them repeatedly. Which is understandable.

hiroonakamura Friday, June 16, 2017

so the guy's honest and people turn their back on the entire group? idiots.

circadianite hiroonakamura Friday, June 16, 2017

Except nobody actually said they were turning their back. They just said 'that wasn't a great thing to say' ... let's not make it more dramatic than it actually was.

Except it's literally stated at the very first paragraph of the article that some fans turned their backs

Exo_Leia Friday, June 16, 2017

I mean he has a point? Better to prep the fans now instead of saying it's gonna last forever lmao. But really tho, I can kinda understand why fans are a little upset

Winston Friday, June 16, 2017

I think even though some fans KNOW in their hearts the groups will never last FOREVER, its not something the fans will want to openly discuss, its like EVEN when you are a contract Staff working in an Office, You dun tell your colleague or boss, openly, "FIVE years? (or TWO years?), I will be out of here by then" You dun want to OPEN state that you have NO INTENTION to RENEW your contact when it comes to an END. before it comes to an END. there is a chance ASTRO or Fanatagio will renew them, but by saying wont we be over by then. he is like saying he is not renewing or he dun think the agency will be renewing them.
