  • “I didn’t mention it out loud until now, but my friend and I did talk about these photos on KakaoTalk. It’s an album concept photo, so what’s the point of having all the outfits be Tom Ford? But… since he wants everyone to enjoy, I’ll try. It’s not the best, but still.”
  • “It’s OK, I think.”
  • “The stylist and the photographer both have no idea what they’re doing.”
  • “The whale hat’s super cute, though. LOL.”
  • “To me, it sounds like SEVENTEEN fans have nothing else to hate on. Like, if my biases got official photos this good, the fandom would be throwing parties. Haha. The quality of these photos, including how their hair and makeup were done, are impressive and the haters are full of themselves.”
  • “Isn’t the whale hat supposed to be a part of the concept? It’s unique. I like it.”
  • “Well, we’re also upset that these concept photos ended up looking like a Tom Ford collection look book…”
  • “I think it looks OK… I wish I could get my hands on whatever gear was used for these photos.”
  • “I wish K-Pop idols would stop wearing high-end brand collections from head to toe, especially for their concept photos. They clash. And… TBH, for YEARS, fans have been talking about the members’ hair styles not working out. So, at least get a new hair stylist or try a new salon, or something. Y’all can think I’m a hater for saying what I said, but constructive criticism is needed. Blind support isn’t the answer.”
  • “I’m more turned off by the outfits in this entire shoot is. Look at all the layers of Tom Ford. The outfits are clashing with the backgrounds. In fact, that’s probably why people don’t understand the whale hat. Because it’s awkward and clashy…”
  • “Well… It’s easier to focus on the negativities. They’re always louder. But remember that there are those of us who love these photos for their fairytale vibes.”
