Yeji, Lia, Ryujin, Chaeryeong, and Yuna have gone on to perform on shows such as Music Bank, Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook, MTV Fresh Out, and Music Core. The K-Pop girl group is hyped for their promotions as they are excited to meet MIDZYs. After not hearing them for so long, ITZY can now finally hear their cheers.

Furthermore, "Checkmate" is ITZY's first comeback in South Korea since they dropped their first studio album in September of last year. While MIDZYs are excited about the return of ITZY, a member of the JYP Entertainment girl group recently got mistreated by a music show.

Not long after ITZY performed "SNEAKERS" on Music Core, MBC posted individual fan cams of the members on their YouTube. MIDZYs became upset when Lia's fancam was the only one not posted.


Seeing this, fans of ITZY started trending "#MBCApologizeToLia" and "ITZY IS FIVE" on social media. MIDZYs also demanded to know why Lia was the only ITZY member not included in the fancam uploads.


Due to this, fans are asking for an explanation and an apology from MBC.

MIDZYs also recalled that this was not the first time MBC disrespected Lia. In 2021, it was revealed that Lia would be singing her first OST for the MBC K-Drama "The Red Sleeve." Entitled "Always Be Your Star," Lia's OST was expected to be played in the show's final episode.

Thus, MIDZYs anticipated the finale but were disappointed that ITZY Lia's song was cut from the episode. Sadly, even the idol acknowledged that she was sad about the removal. But she then focused on consolidating her fans. Fans are hoping that Lia gets the respect she deserves.
