Hello. I'm one of TREASURE's fans, Teume (Treasure Maker), who has debuted for a month now.
I made this post to apologize and explain our side to other fandoms who may have been uncomfortable with the amount of TREASURE posts going up in talk section , starting last Thursday, because of their comeback last Friday.
First, I apologize to the people who felt uncomfortable with the continuous amount of trending TREASURE posts in talk section and also, to other groups' fandoms who are getting dragged by TREASURE's haters in the comments.
I would like to explain
Since we are still a small fandom in Korea, we agreed to upload any promotion posts in our fan section first before actually posting it in talk section. 'I'm going to upload this tomorrow at 10pm. How does it sound?' like this.
One of those posts for TREASURE comeback, which was uploaded in our fan section first, was the 'YG somehow became a weirdo'
Right after seeing that in the talk section and knowing that TREASURE is having a comeback, YG boycott supporters and other company bugs started leaving hate comments to all TREASURE posts they could find
And for the other fans' post saying 'Who is this?' and even Teumes' post that were just like 'Wow Teumes, have you seen the teaser? It's amazing'. This kind of posts started trending even in talk section and that's how the negative comments started to take over
We didn't made it trend on purpose ㅜㅠㅜ.. Instead, we actually want all of those to disappear
No matter how good the content is, the negative comments will still take over the post anyway so we only want well-written post to trend in talk section..
Since a lot of posts started to trend, instead of being happy, the handful of us were worried about our kids trending a lot in talk section
We lack the manpower to filter all the comments in TREASURE posts and since there are not much people defending them, the negative comments increased. At first they only mention YG and TREASURE, but now they started mentioning other groups too. Some of it even ended up being the best comment.
No matter how we try to ignore it, they still try to start a war with us. Then, other company bugs will even join at 3-4:30am and that's how the best comments will change. The situation is so unbelievable and we are slowly getting tired too
I feel sorry about them mentioning other groups and I'm also upset because of those comments, which even made it to ranked comments, that we weren't able to filter
Though this will not be solved just by my apology, to all people who were uncomfortable
You're probably like "Ah what with them, Our kids are getting dragged because of them;" ... and I was worried that you might have bad impression of TREASURE because of this, so I came to apologize and explain
I hope other people would read this too, to resolve the misunderstanding. I hope you won't hate TREASURE
With that, this doesn't represent all Teumes. This is only written by me.
Thank you for reading a long post. I hope you will fangirl happily.
[+71, 16] Hi, I'm a Carat. I don't mind. You said they're rookies? they will definitely get dragged everyday so I hope you will take care of your mental health!! I heard they surpassed 600M hearts and even got 1M viewers!! They get more hearts than us 6-year olds.. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Fangirl happily, enjoy it and fighting!!
[+62, -9] Don't mind the negative comments so much ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I'm a Carat and whenever I see a TREASURE post, I read it well and I find them cute!! We also got dragged during our debut days but yours is worst,,. You know how they get more exposure the more they get dragged right? You guys could hit it big starting from your rookie days.. I understand how much you want to show them off since it hasn't been a while since they have debuted. Those negative comments are not everyone's opinion. Please know that there are others like me who are silently supporting them ~!!
[+59, -0] All their idols' here are doing well so they're all relaxed ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Everyone is so kind. Thank you ㅠㅠㅠ
[+29, -1] I'm an Army. I saw this while searching. TREASURE is still very new and my heart aches seeing them get so much hate.. ㅠㅠ .. Don't get hurt over the hate comments..!!
[+25, -1] I'm an Army. Whenever I see your posts trend in talk section, even though I don't comment to your posts, I am cheering for you. There are lots of people, like me, who don't leave comments but are supporting you. Looking at it, those haters just throw the same content to bully you and TREASURE so just ignore it. No matter what they say, ignore it. Don't get hurt. Their song this time is great. As expected, YG knows how to choose a song. I'll be cheering for you
[+25, -24] [Like/dislike this] I'm a Teume and I want to thank all the other fans for the kind words.. I genuinely got encouraged by your comments
[+23, -0] I'm an EXO-L. Cheer up. Ignore the negative comments and every time you think they crossed the line again, send it to YG's email. It's common for any group's image to look bad because of the trolls so just don't feed them. I actually thought they're rising after seeing the trending posts about them. Fighting
[+19, -0] I'm an Inner Circle and I feel so upset. I've been keeping an eye on them since Treasure Box and those bugs hate commenters ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Why did a Teume write an apology post because of those people ㅋㅋㅋㅋ There are comparison posts too but that's because we're all doing well. Don't feed the trolls and fangirl happily ㅎㅎ (The trending TREASURE posts right now has few dislikes and I keep on checking it ㅜ) I love you is so good. Hit big this time. I'll be supporting you
[+18, -0] I'm an Inner Circle and I hope Teume won't get hurt because of the trolls. You seem to be having a really hard time so I hope you really get encouragement from this. The more you feed the troll, the more they will do it so just compile it to PDF and ignore. Personally, I really hope TREASURE will be a hit, though, they're also doing well right now. They're the group I'm looking forward to? All their songs are my style. I even listen to their b-sides ㅋㅎ TREASURE fans, don't be stressed dealing with trolls and just look at your kids. Fangirl happily
[+18, -0] I'm a Luvity. I came here after searching. Since our music promotions overlapped this time, I ended up watching some of their stages and the song, as well as the performance is great. I feel closer to you because of those 'rookie of the year' trolls so I'll be cheering for you. Same year debut friend, fighting ㅠㅠ
