She was already under scrutiny and was accused of buying her way into the idol group.Some netizens were upset at her departure because they felt that her privileged background allowed her to do anything she wants and change her mind easily because of her family’s wealth.Some netizens said: “Well since she’s from a Chaebol family, I bet this celebrity gig was just a hobby for her.‘Some were a bit mean: “The ridiculous part of this all is that there were kids last year who studied their butts off and still couldn’t get in because of her. Is she trying to show off her money? She doesn’t even have a face pretty enough to be a singer ã…¡ã…¡‘And then there were the sarcastic netizens, making comments like “Now now kids, in order to get into college, you have to study to become a celebrity, not for the college entrance exam.‘
