Netizens share LE SSERAFIM member Kim Garam's whereabouts since her hiatus

AKP STAFF

LE SSERAFIM member Kim Garam's whereabouts since her hiatus have been shared online. 

On June 19th, a post sharing Kim Garam's whereabouts gained attention on a popular online community. After being embroiled in a school bullying controversy, the idol member has been sitting out from all group promotions. 

With more allegations and accusations against Kim Garam even after the announcement of Kim Garam's temporary hiatus, many LE SSERAFIM fans demanded Kim Garam be removed permanently from the group.

However, netizens claim that Kim Garam seems to be preparing to join back in the group as she has been spotted regularly practicing at the HYBE labels and she recently signed albums for fans when she met them.  

Netizens are now speculating Kim Garam being included in the August issue of Japanese magazine Nonno was to ease the member back into the group activities.

I really wonder why HYBE is so set on keeping her in the group. Even if they think the bullying allegations aren't that bad, clearly the general public disagrees. It's really quite baffling.

I really think Garam is going to come back. Honestly, at this point we can only sit back and see how things unfold because we will never know what the truth is since there is money and power involved, as well as unknown interests. The only thing that worries me is the mental health of the victim and Garam in case she stays in the group. The victim of her for seeing her as the center of a group of girls from Hybe, a gigantic company, and Garam because she will never have peace with netizens harassing her. Victims or not, they are 16-year-old girls. This only reinforces my idea that Korea should ban underage debuts in K-pop by law, children and teenagers should be protected as they are not mature enough to face many situations that fame brings. You don't even have to stay in Korea to know that, in the West there are many infamous cases. I say this because you don't necessarily have to demonize the Korean industry when the entire global music industry is like that.
