Former F-ve Dolls and DIA member Cho Yihyun (also known as Cho Seunghee) spoke about how she became their manager.

The label offered me to join as a producer. I am living out my dreams through them (CLASS:y). I am working hard so they will do well.

A scene, however, showing the group’s members on their break shocked viewers.

In the scene, CLASS:y member Won Jimin stated, “A lot of our members are still growing. Someone said drinking baby formula helps you grow.

CLASS:y member Park Bo Eun was then shown drinking baby formula out of a water bottle, to which her members stated she was cute.

However, in Korean communities, this scene was met with largely negative comments. Many netizens stated, “You guys need to stop… what are you doing?” “You won’t grow; what you mean is you’ll gain weight,” “Why would you choose this as your character?” “Why would you choose this concept? You guys are going to get cussed out,” and “Your images are now ruined.”
