fromis_9’s Lee Saerom Explains Comments That Recently Came Under Fire During Live Broadcast
fromis_9’s Lee Saerom directly addressed her comments that were overheard at the start of a group V Live broadcast.
On February 12, the members of fromis_9 were preparing for a V Live broadcast. Before they were aware that the broadcast had gone live, they were talking among themselves. Two phrases from Saerom were overheard, including “I’m tired to death” and “I need to go home quickly,” which came under controversy online.
Around midnight, Lee Sae Rom wrote the following statement on WeVerse.
Hello, this is fromis_9’s Saerom.
I’m writing this because I wanted to explain in detail to Flovers [fandom name] the words that you heard from me at the start of yesterday’s V Live.
Between the end of self-quarantine and the start of the V Live was the first chance I’d had in a long time to meet the other members and catch up on conversation with them. I told the members that at first I enjoyed being alone in quarantine after being with the members constantly for so long, but then I later got tired to death of not being able to go outside.
In addition, the self-quarantine period was only seven days, but I wasn’t able to return to the dorm until Seoyeon, who lives in the same dorm, tested negative, so I was worried about her and said that I wanted to go home quickly to see her. I think that these words were overheard without context and so they were misunderstood.
I wanted to show a good image for Flover because it had been a while, but I’m sorry for making you surprised and worried because of my carelessness. I’ll continue to greet you often with a more careful and mature image.
fromis_9 recently made a comeback with “DM,” but their promotions were paused when Lee Seo Yeon tested positive for COVID-19.
