The unsucessful career of the female group – Fanatics

Fanatics’s music products are often criticized by audiences.

Fanatics is an eight-member South Korean girl group formed by FENT in 2018. 

Despite receiving a lot of attention from the previous popularity of Doah – who participated in Produce 48, the career of this girl group is still unsucessful.

The group was originally introduced as a three-member sub-unit called Fanatics–Flavor, debuted on November 26, 2018 with the single “Milkshake”. The full ensemble, consisting of members Doi, Sika, Chaelin, Chiayi, Yoonhye and Doah, debuted on August 6, 2019, with the release of EP The Six. 

With their first mini album The Six and the title song Sunday, Fanatics not only got unnoticed but also was criticized by fans for their “bad” music quality, worse than the product of the 3-member lineup in 2018.

On April 13, 2020, the group has announced the addition of 2 new members, Via and Rayeon, while at the same time also announcing that current members Chaelin and Yoonhye left the group to develop their personal careers. Then, they cameback with their 2nd mini album Plus Two on May 4,2020. This product continues to disappoint the audiences.

Four teammates of the K-Pop girl group, FANATICS, recently had a live stream on the Weibo app. Shortly after, the group started trending at #1 when a clip of an incident went viral. In the now-viral clip, two of the K-Pop girl group members were spotted with short skirts. A staff gave the two girls a jacket to cover up legs. Afterward, a male staff member, presumed to be the manager was heard in the background scolding and slapping the staff, mainly because he aim to flaunt them. “What are you doing? What are you covering? It needs to be seen, allow others see the legs. Are you stupid?” The male staff said. 

Immediately, the four members were shocked and removed the jacket. They continuously crossed their legs or sat crouched. After watching the video, the audience expressed anger and worry about sexual harassment in the Korean showbiz.
