Following the news, netizens criticized Brand New Music and commented, "Brand New Music is already done preparing to debut a group and all the members are ready to go. It sounds like he's asking us to not vote for Lee Dae Hwi since that will push back the group's debut if he promotes with the top 11. Traitor... I'm not voting for them", "So they're just using 'Produce 101' to increase their popularity before debut lol That's so shady. It means they had it all planned out before they went on 'Produce 101'."
