Concerns were raised about the potential repercussions on the group’s image and fanbase, highlighting cultural and industry-specific sensitivities.

Netizens’ Reactions

Here are the online community’s responses to the trailer of the TREASURE’s dating show.

  • “Oh, I’ll tell you roughly what they’re aiming for. It’s all scripted anyway, so giving that gem has already been decided, and since it’s only 4 days anyway, it’s not like it’s going to be emotional, and instead, it’ll just be a quick feed to the viewers.”
  • “I hate it when I think of my idol being filmed.”
  • “The women aren’t shown as much as I thought, and it feels like an observational show focusing on male idols haha. It’s more like flirting, appealing, and being chosen, rather than something like True Love Line.”
  • “Oh no, it looks fun haha”
  • “Fans will be heartbroken, but non-fans might watch it for the dopamine hit.”
  • “I think this is similar to Epik High’s past show on Mnet,” “I think. I remember a real couple came out of that show.”
  • “Is the label crazy?”
  • “Weren’t Treasure’s Japanese fans carrying them? Is YG crazy?”
  • “Even if they make a hit show, the fans will leave, and if the show does badly, they will still lose their fans. But I think they’ll be a hit with international fans.”
  • “First, I am glad they aren’t my idols… They should have just made content showing them playing with each other. I’m sure their fans would have been happy to watch them just hanging out with one another.”

YG Entertainment’s Bold Gamble

Despite the polarizing opinions, YG Entertainment’s decision to embark on this uncharted territory underscores a strategic gamble. The studio aims to leverage the show as a catalyst for broadening the group’s appeal to a diverse audience, albeit with inherent risks.
