So recently, former iKON member B.I recently made the headlines in South Korea after word broke out that he attempted to purchase LSD, ultimately leading to his departure from YG Entertainment.
And netizens have been discussing how news of I.O.I possibly reuniting has always been on Naver’s number search engine every time a scandal related to YG Entertainment broke out. At the moment, many feel that there is a suspicious pattern.
Below is the post.
“It’s almost scary how I.O.I is suddenly in the spotlight every time YG incidents break out.”
“A YG related scandal breaks out ->
YG is searched for the most on Naver ->
All of a sudden, I.O.I reunion news reports break out ->
I.O.I goes up on search engines ->
YG goes down on search engines ->
News reports saying I.O.I reunion is groundless rumor then surfaces + Jeon SoMi solo promotion articles”
Below are some of the comments left by netizens.
“At this rate, they might even start mentioning Wanna One.”
“I guess they can’t use this strategy since it’s been exposed now.”
“I.O.I isn’t even YG, isn’t this overdoing it?”
“Is it just a coincidence that this happened three times?!”
