Gugudan (gu9udan) has made their debut as the first girl group under Jellyfish Entertainment with “Wonderland,” and while fans were excited for them, they have voiced their unhappiness with the agency’s media-play.
On an online community board, a fan shared a photo of a Naver search with the keywords “gugudan” and “EXO,” revealing the many articles that compared gugudan’s debut to EXO‘s as well as BTS‘ and TWICE‘s saying they have reached #1. Some netizens mocked the headlines, leaving sarcastic comments that gugudan had already sold over a million copies like EXO.
But this media-play has left gugudan fans concerned as the group could experience a setback with their debut promotions due to the negative backlash it has already received.
Gugudan is made up of 9-members including Mimi, Hana, Haebin, Nayoung, Sejeong, Sally, Soyee, Mina and Hyeyeon.
