It is known that Jeon Somi was supposed to debut with ITZY.
A netizen expressed their curiosity about the reason why Jeon Somi left before ITZY’s debut
This netizen wrote on the Korean forum Pann Nate, “I’m curious. Why did Somi leave… Of course, I’m glad that both ITZY and Somi are doing well, but I really didn’t understand the situation back then.”
The Pann Nate post regarding this became a hot topic with nearly 38,000 views as of the afternoon of Sep 29th.
Below are some comments from Korean netizens.
– If Somi had debuted with ITZY, there’s a high possibility that Yuna would’ve become an NMIXX member.
– It’s better for Somi to leave. She shines enough on her own
– Jeon Somi seems to have made a good choice.
– No matter what the reason is, it’s all just speculation and has no meaning.
– I heard that Somi left because she was so famous at the time that JYP was worried that she’d stand out on her own, like Suzy in the past.
