Sakura from LE SSERAFIM won't be able to attend today's fan sign event scheduled for April 27 due to certain health conditions. This news comes in heels of the group's recent performance at Coachella 2024, where they faced criticism for their vocals. 

Despite the backlash, many fans stood up in their defense. Sakura herself defended the group through a post. Adding to the buzz, LE SSERAFIM was mentioned by ADOR's CEO Min Hee Jin amid her ongoing feud with HYBE. She expressed discontent, particularly about Chaewon and Sakura (who were part of IZ*ONE as well) debuting before NewJeans.

More about LE SSERAFIM’s Sakura

Recently, LE SSERAFIM's Sakura penned a heartfelt letter to fans, addressing the criticisms and controversies surrounding the group's performance at Coachella 2024 on April 14. The letter focused on personal growth and gratitude in the face of challenges. Posted on Weverse, Sakura's reflective message acknowledged the differing standards of performance quality and expressed her commitment to creating an engaging and memorable experience for both existing fans and newcomers.


Additionally during her press conference, Min Hee Jin revealed that she left Source Music due to unexpected changes in plans regarding the debut of a new girl group. She expressed feeling blindsided upon learning about a group centered around LE SSERAFIM's Chaewon and Sakura, a decision that left her feeling "betrayed." 

Min Hee Jin had anticipated that NewJeans would be the first girl group to debut under HYBE, not LE SSERAFIM. LE SSERAFIM's debuted on May 2, 2022 and NewJeans on July 22, 2022. Additionally, Min Hee Jin highlighted the reported anger expressed by the parents of NewJeans members in reaction to the situation.
