Saerom, Fromis_9's leader, recently was under fire from netizens after the K-pop idol notably made an 'inappropriate' comment in her K-pop girl group's most recent live broadcast.

Fromis_9's Saerom notably vocalized to her K-pop girl group the following comment:

"I'm dead sick of it. I want to go home as soon as possible." 

The K-pop idol's comments then went viral which caused confusion and garnered negative comments. Following Fromis_9's broadcast, netizens believe that Saerom was complaining about doing live broadcasts.

Although the real meaning of Fromis_9's Saerom's comment was unknown, the backlash was from netizens believing that the K-pop idol had an attitude problem. Soon after being under fire, Saerom herself addressed the problem in an update on Fromis_9's Weverse.

Fromis_9 Saerom's apology is as follows:

"Hello, this is fromis_9's Saerom. I decided to leave this message for flovers because I wanted to explain in detail a comment I made at the beginning of yesterday's live broadcast.

I had come out of self-isolation right before the live broadcast started and I was catching up with the other members whom I hadn't seen in a while. The members and I usually spend most of our time together. So when I first went into quarantine, I liked having all the time to myself. But soon, it became frustrating not being able to go outside. This is why I said that I felt 'dead sick of it.' I also want to note that while the recommended self-isolation is seven days right now, I had to remain in quarantine until Seoyeon tested negative. And because Seoyeon and I share the same home that is our dorm, I have not been able to 'go home' for a while. I said that I wanted to 'go home as soon as possible' not only because I missed home but also because I was worried about Seoyeon, too.

I see how, without context, what I said could have led to a misunderstanding. I should have been more careful, especially since it was the first broadcast for flovers in a while. I'm sorry for being thoughtless and causing such a big shock. Going forward, I promise to be more aware and I promise to be on air more often!"
