While fans are more than happy to have Eunwoo, Roa, Yuha, and Rena return to the scene (with one other mystery member), they couldn’t help but notice the “below-standard quality” of AlSeulBit Entertainment‘s promotional material. In fact, when the agency dropped HINAPIA’s “Release Plan”, fans became even more worried about the group’s future.
Fans pointed out, the “poorly designed” image has been simply underwhelming, with typos like “showcace” and an overall “amateur Photoshop vibe”.
As netizens’ irritation grew, AlSeulBit Entertainment then deleted the announcement all together and tweeted that it has been taken down for reviewing and editing.
안녕하세요. 알슬빛 엔터테인먼트입니다.
금일 12:00AM에 게시됐던 RELEASE PLAN이 내부 점검 및 수정으로 인해 급히 삭제가 되었음을 알려드립니다.
빠른 시일내에 찾아뵙겠습니다.
팬분들께 혼란을 드린 점 사과 말씀드립니다.
더 나은 알슬빛 엔터테인먼트가 되겠습니다.

Meanwhile, former PRISTIN and soon-to-be HINAPIA fans continue to express their frustration. One anonymous netizen even designed his/her own version of the release plan to share via online community forums, as to criticize the agency’s lack of attention to detail, investment, and effort.
