Not long after LE SSERAFIM debuted, Kim Garam went on hiatus. The K-Pop star is currently facing a school violence scandal. This all began when Garam's ex-classmates came forward with the allegations.

Since then, netizens have been showing their distaste towards the LE SSERAFIM member. The girl group's label, HYBE, has shown no interest in removing Kim Garam from LE SSERAFIM. Furthermore, the label is supposedly meeting with Daeryun Law, the representative legal firm for alleged victim Yoo Eunseo. The reason for this was to converse about a private settlement.

"As they continue to repeat their attitude of not accepting and applying the fans' criticisms, the distrust toward HYBE grows worse. Recently, as fandoms are sensitive to school violence, sexual assault, and sexism, they should be careful but it'll be hard for HYBE to come up with a better plan than their current actions," Industry Insiders shared.

Thus, netizens believe that HYBE is trying to protect Kim Garam. Due to this, fans are showcasing their anger and frustration on social media.

Notably, the hashtag #garamOUT and other related words have trended on social media, particularly Twitter. Netizens and fans of LE SSERAFIM fans are demanding Kim Garam's immediate removal from the girl group

Adding to this, K-Pop fans, more notably ARMYs and BLINKs, have been speaking out on the subject. It is believed that the dating rumors between BTS' V and BLACKPINK's Jennie are but a distraction for Kim Garam's issue.
