It has been reported that any member who can't maintain a model-like body will be kicked out of the group."We want to live in harmony with Korea’s Girls' Generation. We don't want to fight them, and we'll go through struggles together. We'll co-exist," the group stated during a recent interview.Check out the music video to the group's debut single below, and let us know if you think they have what it takes to be Japan's Girls' Generation.
