Even though Garam only just debuted with LE SSERAFIM back in May, she has already been the center of a bullying controversy. The controversy led to her going on hiatus shortly after the group’s career began.
She is currently still on hiatus but has reportedly still been seen in and around the HYBE Labels building, leading to speculations that she’ll return to the group someday. However, there have been little to no updates about her current status or future plans.
While some fans of the group don’t want Garam to return to the K-Pop industry, others have been vocal with their support for her. The latter are begging her label to at least give an update about her whereabouts and condition.

Even though there have been multiple former classmates who have spoken up about her alleged bullying, it seems that plenty of people still think LE SSERAFIM should continue as six members.

At the very least, it would be nice to learn what HYBE Labels’ future plans are for Garam, but at this time, there don’t appear to be any updates coming anytime soon. The scandal is still fairly new, so it won’t be surprising if it’s a while longer before any official decisions are made.
