The fans form the article also mention the issue of Jeon So-Mi and the “Unexpected scenario” that has arisen and the constant changes in brand values that are unpredictable after the band’s disbandment. Given the concern, many fans have come to the conclusion that “going solo immediately” might be the best possible way for him to maintain his position.
