Stans Discuss NMIXX’s Future After JINI’s Departure: ‘I got turned off with her gone’

In other news, netizens also elaborated on the after-effects of JINI’s departure from NMIXX and JYPE. On February 11, the forum’s author explained:

“Jinni trained under JYPE for a long time, so she was the closest to TWICE, ITZY, and Stray Kids. Momo, Nayeon, and Yeji would often mention Jinni in their lives.

A lot of people also thought that Jinni was NMIXX’s identity and face, so she had a big presence. When Jinni left suddenly, even as a casual fan, I got turned off. Many fans, just like me, got a reality check when Jinni left.

They should’ve at least given her the chance to say goodbye, but they just erased every bit of her. I would think about Jinni every time I watch NMIXX’s videos. Since then, I stopped watching the group.”
