Netizens Unimpressed With First Teaser Images For FNC Entertainment’s Upcoming K-Pop Boy Group AMPERS&ONE


About a month ago, FNC Entertainment — home to K-Pop artists such as CNBLUESF9Cherry Bullet, and P1Harmony — announced they would soon be debuting a new seven-member boy group.

The group includes the Boys Planet contestants KamdenBrian, and Jiho, as well as Siyun, a former contestant on Treasure Box. The remaining three members are KyrellMackiah, and Seungmo, and not much is known about any of them yet.

The group, named AMPERS&ONE, is set to debut on November 15 with the single album AMPERSAND ONE. And in the days leading up to their debut, they started releasing teaser images on October 30.

The individual teasers released of the members so far are pretty typical of K-Pop boy group teasers, showcasing their visuals and charms in their respective pictures.

However, it’s the first group photos of the members that has netizens criticizing AMPERS&ONE’s design team, due to the heavily photoshopped nature of the images.

There have been two group pictures shared so far, and the aesthetic of them is much different than the individual member photos.

The saturation on the pictures seems to be turned up to maximum, and the members’ faces appear heavily edited as well, much to the displeasure of fans.

The two pictures were shared on an online forum post, where there was a lot of criticism in the comments from a majority of people. Netizens are also upset at FNC Entertainment in general for debuting a new boy group rather than focusing on the artists that they already have.

On Twitter, though, fans have been sharing their excitement for the debut of these trainees!

With former Boys Planet members, hopefully AMPERS&ONE will get some publicity to help them draw attention for their debut. But only time will tell how well FNC Entertainment manages and markets them!

 “It’s giving Wanna One’s 2017 debut album… but not… in a good way…”
