I really liked Lami... I wish she would have stayed 😭

But I think that she and Koeun weren't part of the debut line because they both left this year and the debut line up must have been known for at least 6 months. I think the debut line up was released and both of them saw that they weren't part of it and left because Lami trained for 7 years and Koeun for 10...

I fell in love with Yiyan on Produce Camp and boy, how I wish she would have debuted in SM, or Bonbon Girls for the matter. But she is better off in China since we all know how Chinese idols fair in SM
