Despite having debuted in MBK Entertainment‘s new girl group DIA, members Chaeyeon and Cathy surprised viewers by appearing on Mnet‘s survival show Produce 1o1.
Although their agency clarified that the two singers were temporarily leaving their group for the chance to participate on the show, many netizens have expressed their disapproval at their decision. While media outlets questioned the move, netizens suggested that the singers are participating on the show due to DIA’s failure as a group, despite the group having just debuted last year.
