Meanwhile, Korean CARATs have expressed disappointment and frustration with SEVENTEEN, citing instances of what they perceive as deception and a lack of consideration for their fandom.

These grievances include past controversies, such as dating rumors and gift controversies, as well as dissatisfaction with the group’s tour announcement and decision to celebrate their 9th debut anniversary in Japan.

Fans are calling for all 13 members of SEVENTEEN to enlist in the military, expressing a sense of betrayal and disillusionment. The sentiment among fans is that the group should address their controversies and prioritize their Korean fanbase.
