    Somi Criticized For Holding Debut Showcase Without Any Performance Because It “Wasn’t Ready”

    She revealed why she didn’t perform live and why her debut was delayed.

    Somi made her official debut at her “BIRTHDAY” showcase today, but many of the press were disappointed that she only revealed her music video and did not perform her new song live.

    Idols’ showcases usually feature the song’s music video, a live performance, photo time, and an interview.

    When the reporters asked why she chose not to perform live today, she explained that the choreography continues to change, so she did not want to perform unless she was absolutely confident that everything was perfect.

    "I’m going to go practice after the showcase too. I didn’t want to perform a stage that wasn’t fully ready because it would be lacking. In order to show a more perfect stage, I decided not to perform live today. I’m sorry."
    — Somi


    She also explained that the ever-changing choreography was one of the reasons why her debut was delayed over a month compared to her first debut announcements.

    "The choreography is changing even now. It’s different from when we shot the music video, so we couldn’t use much of the dance scenes either.We had even re-recorded the song, so we just weren’t ready."
    — Somi



    Despite her explanations, netizens began to criticize her for making her solo debut when she wasn’t fully ready.

    But who can blame an artist who simply wants to make sure they only put out the best that they can? Support Somi’s debut by checking out her “BIRTHDAY” MV!

    Okay, but you kept pushing your debut back, postponing it for MONTHS and you're telling me it's still not ready?

    You would think that just performing the song would be the easy part

    She's making her own songs, probably her own choreography too

    It takes time.

    It’s not that it’s her fault. Company is responsible for it

    Oops! These people are not invited!

    It's so easy to see all the bandwagon hate here when she's immediately being compared to YG as if she has something horrible or something. Poor girl debuted at the worst time possible.

    Byeee

    Lmao. They already delayed the debut, held a showcase but still wasn’t ready. Should’ve changed dates then? What were they thinking?
    I don’t think it’s her fault though.

    Offcourse ik that, what kind of question is that. The Akmu girl can't finish her solo for 1,5 years her sibling went to the army. Somi said she has the experience of the pain of making your first song. It's not easy.
    Her song certainly suits her.

    Jesus we are already at a messy start huh. Plus should the choreo used in the music video be the same one used in stage?
