1. [+459] Is Aespa trending…? I think they made the right choice by leaving SM ^^ I’d rather they join an agency that recognizes their talents and doesn’t discriminate between their male and female idol groups, unlike SM who doesn’t even protect an ounce of their own idols..
2. [+392] Congratulations on your quick escape
3. [+240] Is this list even accurate? Jihan said that the SM trainee rumors were all false ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
4. [+87] Trending? Oh yeah, trending for being controversial
5. [+68] Wait, SM had all these normal kids to pick from and they purposely went with the problematic ones?
6. [+32] ‘Trending girl group’ ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I guess it’s more accurate to call this a list of trainees who survived
7. [+4] ‘Trending girl group’ Aespa ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
8. [+1] Seems like the meaning of ‘trending’ has changed without us knowing
