Yet, despite the amazing performance from the members, the show has come under fire after netizens criticized the lighting and camerawork of those on the show.
In clips shared online, BLINKs shared that the lighting on the stage for the performance was extremely dark. It meant that, despite the members’ huge movements and outfits, there were times when the group wasn’t seen as clearly.
Others pointed out that there were times when the cameraman was slow with his movements which meant that the members weren’t clearly shown on camera when it came to their solo parts.
When the clips were released, netizens shared their thoughts about the camera work. While many blamed the show for its lack of professionalism when it came to showcasing the group, others couldn’t stop praising the members for being able to shine, despite the difficult circumstances.
