Netizens also called out Hui for wearing PENTAGON earbuds during her “Love Me Right” performance on “Boys Planet.” Aside from her performance, netizens commented on how unfair it was for Hui to “steal” someone’s spot on the show.

Read their comments below:

“It’s a show where the votes are based on your popularity. He had the opportunity to be recognized more than the others. Don’t you find that problematic?”

“It’s also not like his band was a flop. He has a place to go back to, so I don’t see why he’s even on the show.”

“More importantly, he wore in-ear headphones from a Pentagon fandom on the Boys Planet stages.”

“What does he think ‘Boys Planet’ is about? He’s the legendary cheating singer.”

“Even for the ’02 and ’03 it’s almost too late to start. Imagine a ’93 coming up here and stealing someone’s seat.”

“Seriously, so is he. He doesn’t even think about leaving his existing group while stealing a youngster’s place.”
