People in the comment section are messed up.

Why do people straight up blindly hate anyone associated with Bighit or hybe, grow up man stop being so immature.

This kid is so young and he doesn't deserve whatever shit y'all are talking about.

Also He is his own person and he doesn't look like anyone. He looks like himself.
