While there were some fans who were happy with the change and cheered on the girls, many netizens were reminded of something completely different.
They recognized the golden opportunity that it was to make jokes about the programming term and K-Pop.
API is a 5 member girl group consisting of Cheongeum, Heejoo, Saebyeok, Haru and Dany. They debuted on April 18, 2019 under Brickwork Company.
