Kpop cult religion rumour

this group supposedly preaches the gospel that man and God are BFFs, with a side of worship for Mago, the goddess of the universe. And if that weren't juicy enough, buckle up because here's where it gets really spicy.


Remember GFRIEND's swan song, "Mago"? Yeah, that's right, the same song that had us all bopping to the beat before shedding a tear over their disbandment. Well, turns out, 'Mago' isn't just a catchy tune—it's allegedly linked to this whole cult shenanigans. Some eagle-eyed fans noticed that GFRIEND's farewell single shared its name with the cult's goddess, and suddenly, the plot thickens like a good K-drama.

But wait, there's more! Remember that eerie coincidence of GFRIEND disbanding right before Walpurgis Night, the German feast day where they burn witches like they're marshmallows at a bonfire? Yeah, well, some conspiracy theorists are connecting the dots faster than a connect-the-dots puzzle, suggesting that GFRIEND's witchy concept and LE SSERAFIM's debut date are all part of some grand master plan orchestrated by... cue dramatic music... HYBE!

Speaking of LE SSERAFIM, their debut is stirring up its fair share of conspiracy theories too. With their angelic name and fire-themed concepts, fans are seeing more signs than a fortune teller at a carnival. From burning witches to embracing glowing orbs, it's like a mystical journey through a K-pop fantasy novel.


And let's not forget about Min Hee Jin, the mastermind behind NewJeans, who's allegedly trying to steer clear of this whole cult debacle faster than you can say "Weverse." Rumor has it she's ditching the mainstream communication apps for something a bit more discreet, all to avoid any association with 'Dahn World.' Can you blame her? I wouldn't want my brand tied to a cult either!

But wait, there's one more piece to this puzzle—the music video for NewJeans' "OMG." If you thought the song was just a catchy tune, think again. With cryptic narrations and existential ponderings, it's like a riddle wrapped in an enigma, sprinkled with a dash of intrigue.

So, what's the truth behind all these rumors? Well, your guess is as good as mine, but one thing's for sure: in the world of K-pop, the truth is often stranger than fiction. So, grab your popcorn and buckle up, because this rollercoaster ride is far from over!
