Netizens React As ARTMS’s Photo Update Goes Viral — For All The Wrong Reasons
In March, Orbits celebrated when they learned Kim Lip, JinSoul, Choerry, and Heejin signed with a new agency after leaving Blockberry Creative.
ModHaus cheers on Jun Heejin, Kim Jeongeun (Kim Lip), Jung Jinsol (JinSoul) and Choi Yerim (Choerry) in their new starts. And we promise to not hold back in our active support for them so that they can make more beautiful memories with fans. Please love and show lots of in trust in Jun Heejin, Kim Jeongeun (Kim Lip), Jung Jinsol (JinSoul) and Choi Yerim (Choerry) in the future.
The members are participating in a project called ARTMS, which mysteriously describes itself as “a story of the amazing strategies and plans of the girls to get to the moon.”
ARTMS is not a name of a new group.
It’s a story about the amazing strategies and plans of the girls to get to the moon.
HeeJin, Kim Lip, JinSoul, and Choerry, will start this story.https://t.co/mOvZ6PC72B#HeeJin #KimLip #Jinsoul #Choerry pic.twitter.com/R29RyIcvXQ

Fellow ModHaus group, TripleS, also uses NFTs to determine their concepts, line-up, and more.
Fans reacted with wildly mixed opinions about the use of NFTs after the initial excitement that the four former LOONA members were once again active after the fallout between LOONA and Blockberry Creative. They were once again bewildered by the latest photo uploaded by the ARTMS project.
The photo, uploaded on Twitter with the caption “Explorer members healing | ARTMS shortcut,” quickly went viral for all the wrong reasons.

Fans hilariously reacted to the unusual new photo, with multiple netizens questioning the project’s concept while jokingly asking for the picture to be deleted as it went viral with over 10,500 quote tweets and 22,700 likes.

Many noted and reacted to the suspiciously high number of bookmarks on the Tweet as well, which grew to 1,264 bookmarks in less than eight hours.
