Netizens responded to the announcement with remarks like “If the item is going to be sold, it should at least be made smaller,””Besides Seon-jae, who would be interested in purchasing this?””It’s comparable to buying photo cards and receiving the necklace as a bonus,””I saw it at the pop-up shop and it’s even more impressive in person,”and “The price seems to be too steep.”

Director Yoon Jong-ho comically stated, “I would like to offer my sincere apologies. Perfection is not achievable in all aspects. Imperfections are necessary in order to demonstrate growth in future projects.”He went on to explain, “I had received the design draft beforehand, but I was unable to accurately assess the size at the time and it appeared satisfactory. There were even playful remarks made about its resemblance to serial number chains. By the time we realized the issue, it was too late to make any changes. I never imagined it would become such a contentious matter.”
