In an age where women should be empowering each other, some K-pop fans are being regressive and trying to pit female K-pop artists against one another without any context. On March 14, girl group (G)I-DLE released their new mini-album ‘I Never Die’ with the title track 'Tomboy' for the first time as a five-members group after the exit of Soojin, who was embroiled in a controversy that alleged that she was a school bully which caused her retirement from the label Cube Entertainment as well as her long hiatus from the entertainment industry. 

Back in 2019, soloist HyunA (aka Hyuna), who was also a part of the label Cube Entertainment, had her contract with the label terminated after she was found to be dating fellow Cube Entertainment artist as well as former Pentagon member Dawn. The duo exited the label and in a tasteful turn of events, the couple now have wedding bells ringing as they were recently engaged. With all this being said, some naïve trolls are calling Soyeon out for allegedly writing song lyrics that "take a jab at Hyuna’s situation" with the company that (G)I-DLE is still a part of.

Did Soyeon really diss Hyuna?

As soon as the lyrics of (G)I-DLE’s lead single ‘Tomboy’ were reflected upon, more users on the internet started feeling that Soyeon was actually dissing Hyuna despite their lovable sunbae-hoobae (senior-junior) relationship. In the lyrics, Soyeon is heard saying, "I don’t wanna play this ping pong, I would rather film a Tik Tok.” These fans pointed out how Hyuna had a song called ‘Ping Pong’ with Dawn and was being called out with the reference of her own song.

With this brewing conspiracy theory, more fans started dissecting the lyrics of other (G)I-DLE songs. Some users also alleged that the line, ‘Scolded by daddy, out of company, Looking forward to your wedding,” from their song ‘Never Stop Me’ from the same album was another dig at Hyuna and Dawn who were kicked out of Cube Entertainment and are now soon going to have a wedding. All these alleged “jabs” from Soyeon are being called out and some fans of Hyuna point out how the soloist was the money-maker for the label.

'Just two successful women'

One Hyuna fan joked about the situation, "Twitter doing what it does best: pitting successful women against each other for misunderstandings." Another fan said, "It's actually insane how this whole soyeon hyuna mess was started by clc fans cropping lyrics and making up a narrative while not one hyuna stan had spoken." Another fan said, "While you guys are creating confusion about Soyeon and HyunA, they are still 2 successful women."

One more fan said, "Soyeon dissed hyuna” meanwhile sy & hy." Another fan said, "Hyuna is the reason everybody in cube is getting a check to begin with sit down." Another fan said, "Its kinda sad how soyeon made a song about getting rid of women's prejudices basically a great feminist anthem and the first thing people do is shit on her, a woman." One more fan added, "When people are too blinded by hate, they'll just believe in whatever they want to believe."

(G)I-DLE’s lyrics could be for former member Soojin

Like there are two sides to a coin, a second side to this story reveals how the lyrics for (G)I-DLE’s first album as a five-member group has a much deeper meaning where they are talking about their past lovers as well as their former member’s Soojin who was suddenly removed from the label due to an old controversy. Neverlands (fans of the girl group) defended Soyeon, claiming that the rapper is being bullied for no reason by K-pop fans, who are creating a controversy out of nothing. Fans used an old video of Soyeon on stage with Hyuna pointing out how the two are really close and how Soyeon respects her seniors.

Fans also pointed out that the lyrics are actually only talking about (G)I-DLE’s past relationships as in the song ‘Tomboy’ it can be heard, “Your mom raised you as a prince, But this is queendom, right?” and in another line where it can be heard, “Sometimes we swear without cigarettes, I like to eh on drinking whiskey,” talking about some of the accusations Soojin was facing amid the school bullying controversy.

'I think the lyrics were for Soojin'

One fan spoke about the controversy, "Gidle lost a member and went through hell over it for a whole year and you think their priority is HYUNA?" Another fan said, "I think the lyrics were about soojin especially with the mention of drinking and smoking which she got accused of doing in middle school. i think the ping pong part was pure coincidence since there’s no reason for her to hate hyuna since they were labelmates at one point." One more fan said, "She's not dissing Hyuna, she's dissing the girls who ruined Soojin's life."

One fan said, "Some parts of the song is obviously about Soojin's bullying situation .... And why tf would Soyeon even "diss" Hyuna when Soyeon had said multiple times how much she respects her seniors and Hyuna trained Soyeon."

One fan guessed, "My theory is that the chorus is also for soojin bc soyeon sings that there's red FIVE diamonds in HER bag and they are - miyeon, minnie, soojin, yuqi and shuhua. bc idle is her masterpiece."
