Back in July 24, they shared that they will be providing fans with contents of the trainees under the agency through various social media accounts. At the same time, they also hope that the trainees will receive many support and love from their fans.
With the opening of these accounts, many fans of Starship trainees (Ham WonJin, Koo JungMo, Moon HyunBin) who had appeared on Mnet “Produce X 101” had followed the account. Time to time, selfies and video contents of these trainees were also uploaded.
However, on Sept. 25, fans did not expect to see on their timeline a profile photo of female trainee.

Many had assumed that the Twitter account would only be used by the male trainees and they were more than surprised to see that a female trainee had appeared.
According to some fans, they believe the female trainee is none other than Park Sun who had previously appeared on Mnet “Idol School”.
With that being said, they left their thoughts on an online community.
One commented if the Twitter account is going to be mix gendered, many are going to stop following that account. Another also believe that 95% of the followers of the Twitter account are fans of Ham WonJin and Koo JungMo.
Some also understood the fact that Starship wants to use the account to promote both male and female trainees but felt that they are not uploading contents of the trainees frequently as expected.
What do you think of this situation?
