K-pop fans respond to reports that LOONA is preparing for a January comeback as an 11-member group

AKP STAFF

On December 7, there were reports that Blockberry Creative is preparing for LOONA's comeback in January.

Various industry insiders have stated that BlockBerry Creative has begun planning the girl group's comeback as an 11-member group in January 2023. On the same day, Blockberry Creative's representative confirmed the facts and stated that the label is indeed preparing for the girl group's comeback as an 11-member group.

A BlockBerry Creative rep told media outlets, "It's true that LOONA has begun preparations for a comeback; however, the exact time frame is unconfirmed. Once the schedule is confirmed, we plan to make an announcement."

Many fans are concerned for the group since it was also reported that nine members of LOONA are reportedly working to suspend their exclusive contracts with Blockberry Creative.

Fans expressed anger toward the label and commented, "Are they crazy?" "The group's not the same without Chuu," "As an Orbit, I won't be buying any of their albums. The members aren't even paid well and the label is doing whatever they want to with the group," "How are they going to do a comeback when 9 of the 11 are taking legal action to suspend the contract," and "Do they think fans would buy their album after all this?"

I can only assume it’s a way for BBC to wrangle every dollar they can out of the girls before they win their injunctions. That doesn’t seem irrational anymore.

Considering the fact that the members aren't being paid for the multiple other albums they've painstakingly put out in the past, I hope no one buys this upcoming one just to boycott BBC. Only reason I would buy one is to support the group, but the fact that they aren't being compensated for their hard work proves it's not worth it at all since the label will just keep every cent.
