Her fans also don’t back down when calling out WAKEONE‘s treatment of the popular, talented member. Fans have been calling for WAKEONE to protect the idol since Girl’s Planet 999 was airing and Huening Bahiyyih received a shocking number of malicious comments that even the idol was aware of.
Although WAKONE stated that “strong measures without leniency will be taken” against “malicious postings, defamation, and false rumors,” fans were still concerned that not enough action was being taken.
PROTECT HIYYIH! you haven’t done anything to help hiyyih with the harassment & threats she has been receiving. you have been ignoring ALL our emails we have sent & we still haven’t seen any change. was this post just to “show off “? #WakeoneProtectBahiyyih#BahiyyihDeservesLove pic.twitter.com/A5qsuTzH57

Especially considering that many fans believe WAKEONE is responsible for treating Huening Bahiyyih unfairly compared to other members. Not only do fans of Kep1er think that WAKEONE is mistreating the group as a whole, but they argue that Huening Bahiyyih deserves more screen time and lines in Kep1er’s releases.
Especially given her talent, work ethic, and popularity, fans argue that WAKEONE has failed to provide Huening Bahiyyih the spotlight she deserves.
In protest of WAKEONE, many Huening Bahiyyih fans don’t watch Kep1er’s content as a whole, which is why a six-month-old video is now resurfacing, as fans noticed one of the captions used for the idol.
In the “DOUBLAST Jacket Behind” video, Huening Bahiyyih poses for pictures with Yujin and Xiaoting as the members have fun goofing around together in between shots.
At one point in the video, Huening Bahiyyih picks up a balloon, absentmindedly playing with it. While the scene is adorable, her fans were stunned to realize that the official video subtitles declare her an “expressionless dancer.”
Fans are understandably calling out WAKEONE for the remark since they believe it “[fuels] the hate against her.”
like she isn't even dancing. tell me which company does this to their own artist. and i know they are very well aware of the hate she gets. it's almost like they enjoy fueling the hate against her and then ignoring fans requesting action against the vitriol she recieves. https://t.co/Rvc8JaBRuF pic.twitter.com/HCQzWkNhH9

And are eagerly waiting for Huening Bahiyyih to be able to leave the company since WAKEONE treats her this way but hasn’t helped prevent the malicious comments against her.
need her out of that useless company https://t.co/MihP5vjvSM

Fans have also uncovered another instance of WAKEONE using suspect subtitles for Huening Bahiyyih, like when they dubbed her “one of the weakest members.”

I really love Kep1er and I want the best for them, but I can't be fully happy knowing that my girl is still getting undeserved hate and unfairness straight from the company. I really want Hiyyih to be free from that company 😭😭😭 Give me a happy ending for my girl ✊ https://t.co/jqvOSvauOu

Fans can’t understand why a company would try to “sabotage” one of their idols.
what a strange, strange thing to say as a company. you'd think at least one more person apart from the editor checks these videos before uploading them. did they think it was funny or something lol she needs to get out of there https://t.co/jDXWiNgzgu

Idrc if they were talking about hiyyih "dancing" with the balloon, to say shes an expressionless dancer/dancing expressionlessly when thats what she was bullied for is not cool, no matter the intentions. https://t.co/lXT8iFjeqM

they could have said any other actually funny thing but they had to go with that? her own company not only doesn’t protect her but fuels the hate comments against her… https://t.co/2TVypeONL7

what the FUCK? what sort of company would do that to one of their idols? how rude. https://t.co/jlPorFP8TT

Although some fans suggest that it’s simply a promotional tactic, which is only more reason for fans to demand better treatment.
It almost feels like they r using the hate she gets as promo for the group. Just like what mnet did https://t.co/i2j3Vn4yN4

You can't tell me they're not doing this on purpose. From the backhanded comments, to the short lines, no center time, lack of promotion, lack of protection against harassment and MUCH more! WakeOne clearly knows what they're doing, they're sabotaging Hiyyih and they enjoy it https://t.co/JNf02xaGNV
