Fans reacted to the sudden announcement of Cha Eunwoo’s personal fanclub by saying that they were confused. ASTRO has been on a long hiatus since their third full-length album in May last year. In the meantime, Rocky left the group due to the expiration of her contract, and member Moon Bin sadly passed away. 

Fans who suffered through the team’s reorganization process are bound to be surprised by the sudden news that ASTRO is recruiting a fanclub for a single member without any explanation of their future activities. In response, some fans are demanding an explanation of the organization’s future activities through the ASTRO Fan Café. 

In addition, various online communities and channels are also expressing their disappointment with the announcement of Cha Eunwoo’s personal fanclub. Fans are expressing their disappointment by saying, “Isn’t it too much for Aroha,” “There is no courtesy for Aroha,” and “There is an order of doing things.” 

A representative from Fantasio told X Sports News that they are “checking into the matter.” 

ASTRO, meanwhile, is approaching its eighth anniversary, having debuted in February 2016. Late last year, the organization announced the re-contracting of Cha Eunwoo, Jinjin, and Yoon Sanha, and is reportedly in talks to re-contract MJ, who was discharged from the military last month.

1. I’m jealous because I wish my bias would have his solo fanclub. The group has theirs and my bias has his so there’s no issue

2. It’s not a disbandment, it’s not a change of agency, so why are you recruiting individual fans..;

And if you’re going to recruit, you should do it separately. Why is it done through the group’s fan cafe? Doesn’t their company have their own official account?

3. This is a bit….

4. There’s an issue with this company

5. They are not even making a new name but went up with the name ‘Aroha’ too. I think that nobody would’ve cared if they named it “Aroha-XYZ’s name”. Suju did this too and that’s the trend nowadays. As someone who experienced a team’s disbandment, I’m jealous of them and I think that it’s a good way for your team to last long

6. But isn’t it a fact that most of their fans are fans of Cha Eunwoo?

7. Hul this is seriously not it. What is this?

8. If you’re not a fan, you should refrain from commenting

9. Don’t post this on ASTRO’s fan cafe….

10. I’m jealous… when are they doing this for my group?…ㅠㅠㅠ
