Source Music and HYBE Label's LE SSERAFIM was once among the most anticipated K-Pop artists to debut. But prior to their first release, the girl group's reputation went down after allegations toward member Kim Garam surfaced prior to their debut.

Not long after LE SSERAFIM announced Kim Garam as a member, negative posts online surfaced. Notably, the posts had photos of the K-Pop idol making rude hand gestures and sexually inappropriate jokes. School violence accusations were also included in the posts.

Source Music has since denied the rumors, announcing to take legal actions if their artist continues to take criticism. But netizens did not relent even though no solid evidence was put forward. The lack of evidence has not stopped some netizens from hating on Kim Garam.
