And while many are ecstatic that the group has brought back old 90s vibes with their undying talent, some netizens and small entertainment agencies are criticizing SSAK3 for unfairly taking over all the music charts.

Some representatives from a small entertainment agency even expressed,

It’s a situation where there are singers who can’t go on a music program even if they wanted to. So it’s an unfair game right from the start.

And some netizens agreed while accusing the group of taking away opportunities from their younger idols.

  • The singers who worked so hard on their new albums probably feel so discouraged.
  • It’s not a fair game since they’ve already claimed all of the recognition and awareness from the public.
  • Shouldn’t they give up the opportunity to their “hoobaes”?
  • I can imagine just how deprived other idols must feel.

On the other hand, other netizens are coming to SSAK’s defence.

  • Consumers aren’t stupid. If the songs are good, they listen to the songs no matter who the artist is.
  • Why are they blaming SSAK3 for this?
  • This just goes to show how good SSAK3’s songs are.

SSAK 3 recently announced that they’ll be donating all of their profits from their album and activities to help the needy.
