  • What do you mean he wasn’t a pigeon? LOL. He didn’t promote with the group.
  • No interest.
  • Is there even demand?
  • Why not? Isn’t he better [than the others?] Isn’t it better to have left properly?
  • He’s not promoting with the group, but doesn’t leave the group LOL. Didn’t he say he wants to spread C-Pop to the world?
  • He’s just using K-Pop.

”Pigeon” is what many call those who promote in Korean groups to gain a fanbase before leaving for their own country.
