3. Controversy (Rumors)

NingNing Weibo

  1. 1. Fans are not happy with having Chinese members

As there were many Chinese members of SM artists who left the group, or ones under controversy, fans are not happy with having Chinese members in the group. (Previous Chinese members of SM artists who were under fire includes Hangeng, Luhan, Songchian (Victoria), and Jangyixing (lay))

2. Contacting with fans through Weibo during trainee period

It is banned to keep in touch with the fans before debut

3. SM internal information leakage + got paid for providing information

while she was a trainee, Ningning leaked SM Entertainment’s internal information to her fans through weibo and got paid for providing the confidential information.

When fans asked her a question about SM Entertainment, and sent pictures of ‘yes’ and ‘no’, she only read one picture that’s the answer. For example, when a fan asked her “Is there going to be a new girl group debuting next month?” and send two pictures, and the answer is ‘No’, then she would only read ‘no’ picture to give the answer.

Karina’s Text

One day, some pictures of texts were uploaded on an online community. Writer said the conversation was between herself and her friend Karina who will be debuting soon under SM Entertainment. The texts were about Karina criticizing other artists including BTS and EXO members.

However, SM Entertainment made an official statement saying the photos are made up and is a rumor. They will also take legal actions to malicious comments.
