ZEROSES are upset, saying that the company, WAKEONE Entertainment, neglected Ricky. They pointed out that ZEROBASEONE has long been scheduled to attend The 2023 Asia Artist Awards, and Ricky’s visa and passport should have been resolved during this time. They also remembered that in a previous live broadcast, other members excitedly talked about traveling for the event while Ricky appeared quiet as if he knew already he wouldn’t be able to go.
