Kep1er just had the first V Live, yet Knetz came up with a ‘theory’: Is Huening Bahiyyih being ‘isolated’ in the group?

However, this ‘theory’ was met with a lot of objections from those who fully watched the V Live session that day.

On October 22, after more than 2 months, Mnet’s survival reality show Girls Planet 999 selected the official debut lineup of the project girl group that will work together in the next 2.5 years.  Kep1er was formed with a total of 9 members: Kim Chaehyun, Huening Bahiyyih, Choi Yujin, Kim Dayeon, Seo Youngeun, Kang Yeseo (Korea), Ezaki Hikaru, Sakamoto Mashiro (Japan) and Shen Xiaoting (China), targeting the global market.

After the finale of “Girls Planet 999” ended, Kep1er quickly started preparing for the debut. The group is set to make its debut in December of this year. Since then, the management company has also launched social media accounts such as Twitter, Instagram, V Live or the official fancafe on Daum in order to prepare for plans to connect the members and their fans.

On November 4, Kep1er had the first live broadcast on V Live, and also marked the first time the 9 members appeared together since the finale of “Girls Planet 999”. During the more than 30 minutes of V Live, the Kep1er members talked about their recent situation, answered questions from the audience, and thanked all the fans for their support. 

However, since this V Live, some Korean netizens have started to question whether Huening Bahiyyih was being “isolated” in the group.  This “conspiracy theory” arose from a few moments when the members focused on reading fan comments, and only Bahiyyih was sitting alone.  In addition, some people also think that Huening Bahiyyih is being mistreated because despite being ranked 2nd overall, she was placed on the edge of the lineup.

In fact, the appearance of Huening Bahiyyih in the debut lineup of Kep1er has been continuously causing many unending controversies.  This wave of criticism aimed at the 2004-born contestant was so serious that the PD of “Girls Planet 999” had to ask the online community to stop criticizing Huening Bahiyyih, and affirmed that she also has a lot of talents.

However, all the “conspiracy theories” about Huening Bahiyyih being “isolated” in the group soon faced a series of harsh objections from those who had fully watched yesterday’s V Live session. Many people pointed out that in other moments, members like Choi Yujin, Shen Xiaoting, Kim Chaehyun or Kim Dayeon complimented Huening Bahiyyih‘s beauty and even called her a princess. This proves that Kep1er is not isolating Huening Bahiyyih, on the contrary, they seem to know the controversy about her appearance, so they always try to help her feel more confident in her appearance.

  • “The girls are at the point in time when they’re still awkward with one another. Does posting that Bahiyyih is alienated from other members make her feel more confident? If you watch the entire broadcast, you’ll see that the members praised Bahiyyih for being pretty and even read comments calling her a princess. It’s enough to see how well Kep1er is taking care of Bahiyyih. Many people are so indiscriminate that they only see what they want to see”
  • “I didn’t think the number of views would be that high, but in the end, it was much higher than I thought. Since Kep1er is getting such good responses, the antis started making false rumors to bring down the group again. It’s true that ‘a leopard can’t change his spots'”

  • “Don’t say anything if you don’t watch the broadcast. The members read a lot of comments saying that Bahiyyih is pretty and looks like a princess”
  • “The group is newly formed so it’s inevitable that the members are still shy with each other. As long as they develop their relationship, everything will be fine. Bullying or isolation are just false rumors. Bahiyyih didn’t always sit far away from other members. There were times when they got close to each other”

  • “Why didn’t you mention it when Yujin cared about Bahiyyih like this?”

  • “A lot of people apply double standards, asking others not to hate Bahiyyih but swearing at other members”
  • “Wow, I thought Bahiyyih wouldn’t fit in with Kep1er, but she did”
  • “But I feel pity for the 2nd place to sit on the sideline like this”

Meanwhile, based on the time when the management company uploaded official photos from yesterday’s V Live, many fans are speculating that Kep1er will officially debut on December 13.
