Namu Wiki is the equivalent of Wikipedia in South Korea. Hence, it is an essential resource for fans to get to know any artist. The content on Wikitree is expected to be fact-based rather than opinion-based, making it a more reliable database. So, when LE SSERAFIM fans noticed an entire paragraph dedicated to criticizing the group on their Namu Wiki page, it immediately stirred up a heated discussion.

Under the section on the group’s live performances, netizens found an odd paragraph individually calling out the members’ live singing skills in less-than-factual language.

Apart from Kim Chaewon and Huh Yunjin, many consider the live singing skills of the other members to be terrible. Taking Sakura’s Japanese activities into account, Sakura has over 10 years of experience but her singing skills and Korean pronunciation are deplorable, and many say that her Korean pronunciation cannot be understood at all unless you read the lyrics. Hong Eunchae received a lot of criticism for her singing style, which makes it seem like she’s suppressing her burp, and she often avoids performing live during encore stages. Kazuha, too, has been criticized several times for her poor singing.

The paragraph eventually read like a frustrated rant, complaining about LE SSERAFIM’s “Dokgi” concept, which refers to a fierce and passionate image.

This lack of skill was further highlighted in conjunction with the Dokgi concept, and many criticize that the group doesn’t have enough skills to fit the concept. There are even voices suggesting that it is time for them to change the Dokgi concept.

While LE SSERAFIM’s live performances have often been criticized, it was unexpected for an official Namu Wiki page to contain such an entry. Netizens felt that it almost read like a hate comment.

  • “I don’t even understand why [the OP] had to bring this up. And people who are seemingly ‘agreeing’ with what it says… You’re all are out of your minds.”
  • “That’s really just a hate comment.”
  • “Did [the OP] just copy-paste this from Nate Pann?”
    — “Yup. I don’t read WikiTree TT.”
  • “If the Wikitree page is given limited access via login and IP restrictions, it means only fans can edit the information. That burp comment was too much…”
  • “There are a lot of malicious comments here. Those of you agreeing with what the page says, you’re all just haters.”
  • “If they had just written stuff like, ‘Their live performances are lacking or disappointing,’ I wouldn’t have said this, but seeing the kind of phrases they used, it’s definitely a hate comment.”

A previous version of the article stated it as the WikiTree page of LE SSERAFIM. It is their Namu Wiki page.
