One set of trainees were tasked with performing LE SSERAFIM’s “Unforgiven,” which held a heavier meaning than was expected due to the recent controversy surrounding the group.

Following their performance at Coachella, LE SSERAFIM were subject to harsh criticism regarding their live singing skills that sparked a larger debate over HYBE’s training practices.

As “I-LAND 2” is the follow-up to I-Land, which formed HYBE subsidy BE:LIFT Lab‘s ENHYPEN, many eyes were on the performance.

As a result of the performance, three out of the four trainees who performed the song were given more than two Is, meaning they were allowed into the nicer “I-Land” facility, while those with two or fewer were assigned to “Ground,” the elimination zone.

The performance was placed online after the episode, where netizens watched and reacted.

Many found the performance done by the trainees, making digs at LE SSERAFIM in the process.

Others saw the LE SSERAFIM comments as a way of continuing the “hate train” and involving the I-Land 2 contestants unnecessarily.

While comparisons were to be expected, the continued hate towards LE SSERAFIM has long since left the constructive category for many and is now affecting the unrelated I-Land 2 contestants.
