After releasing their latest album A New Trilogy on April 25th, girl group Lovelyz has received a lot of praise from fans and industry experts.
But after trying to listen to the album through online music site Melon, fans noticed that for some reason, the album only has a 3.2 out of 5 rating, which is quite low. Upon further research, many noticed that TWICE and SEVENTEEN, who also released their new albums on the same date, also suffered from low ratings as well. With such evidence, netizens suspected that the albums are all being rated poorly due to antifans giving albums low ratings without listening to the songs, explaining why there were so many low ratings so soon after the albums were officially released.
