APINK is known for its bubblegum and synth-pop genre. They are also one of the oldest groups that are still active since 2011. In fact, APINK is still a top group even today. However, despite their popularity, fans feel Play M Entertainment is treating APINK unfairly.
The group only has 1 comeback annually and some fans are also disappointed because of the lack of promotions, updates, and content.
APINK Fans also trended the hashtag #PLAYMTreatApinkBetter on Twitter to show their disappointment towards the company. The #PLAYMTreatApinkBetter is currently trending #3 in Malaysia.
Here are some of the tweets:
"PlayM K-pop industry
Treat Apink like secondhand idol!!
They not your secondhand idol @PlayM_Official !! They're the reason why your agency can stay strong until now!!
"Your other artists got promoted as "apink's junior" not as "playm's artist" because people don't know your company existence if not because of apink.
