The agency managing K-pp group ASTRO, Fantagio’s recent announcement about the launch of Cha Eunwoo's personal fan club has sparked a multifaceted reaction within the ASTRO fan community. The disclosure, made through an official statement on December 1 in the ASTRO fan cafe, revealed plans for membership recruitment scheduled from December 5 to 19. The fan club's activities are expected to run from December 5 to December 19 of the following year.

However, amidst this news, fans have expressed unexpected sentiments, especially considering ASTRO's ongoing hiatus since their last album release in May 2022. The hiatus period saw significant changes within the group, including Rocky's departure due to contract expiration and the tragic loss of member Moonbin.

The unveiling of Cha Eunwoo's individual fan club, amid uncertainties about ASTRO's future, has stirred surprise and concern among supporters. Fans, yearning for clarity and assurance, are actively seeking comprehensive updates on the group's trajectory and forthcoming plans. Their engagement on the ASTRO fan cafe reflects a collective call for the agency to address these uncertainties with an official statement, indicating the direction and prospects for ASTRO in light of recent changes.

Netizens echoed confusion, questioning the necessity of recruiting new fans when the group remains intact. Some expressed discomfort with the use of the AROHA name for this initiative. Despite this, opinions varied, acknowledging Cha Eunwoo's potential need for a separate fan club owing to his immense popularity.

In response to mounting concerns, a Fantagio representative addressed the situation, stating they are currently assessing the issue.

As ASTRO approaches its 8th anniversary since their debut in February 2016, recent contract renewals with members like Cha Eunwoo, Jinjin, and Sanha were announced by Fantagio last year. Reports suggest ongoing discussions regarding MJ's contract renewal following his recent discharge from military service. These developments highlight a pivotal juncture for ASTRO, prompting contemplation among fans about the group's future plans amidst individual endeavors within the band.
