Netizens are protesting HYBE Weverse launching ‘Weverse DM’

HYBE Weverse ‘Weverse DM’ coming soon

1. I really hate paid communication

2. Please don’t do this. It is pay for communication. When an artist wants to come, it’s better to come when they feel like it. I don’t like that artists are bound by form and forced to do it

3. There will be a lot of people paying and writing bad comments

4. No, I don’t want this. If you want to make money, please manage Weverse and Weverse Shop well

5. Please don’t do that, idols just come when they want to come. HYBE can’t even manage Weverse properly now

6. Isn’t it just Bubble?

7. I don’t like that artists do it out of obligation… I heard that people with mental illness paid to harass idols

8. Paid communication seems to make both idols and fans uncomfortable. Seriously, don’t do that

9. Don’t do that, I’m happy with Weverse now

10. It’s great that Weverse doesn’t have paid communication

11. What is the difference between this and Bubble??

12. Isn’t free on Weverse the biggest advantage?

13. I don’t like paid communication, I just like Weverse

14. I wish all paid communication in this world would disappear

Yes but some groups already has paid features for lives & contents so this would just be another cash grab for these idol groups.

If idol groups is already using the free feature to do lives & write posts, I doubt they’ll use this paid dm too

It's whatever

Not if they’re forced to, like bubble. They have to post once per month or people get their money back


Bubble is a paid platform. Weverse is a free platform with a paid option. On weverse, artists decides whether they want to be a free account or paid account.


I didn’t like it. There will inevitably be pressure on idols in paid communication. Also, while weverse already has a lot of anti and hate commenters, with this, idols will see them more. Weverse’s current functioning is fine. Before such launchings, they should try to correct the mistakes. Anyway, bts is a group that always makes lives and leaves comments on weverse. This is not such a big problem for us.


I don’t mind certain paid features, like special video/photos extras or special emojis, but paid communications seems more like a burden on both the fans and idol (being much more job-like, with the money putting an obligation/pressure for idols to communicate, even if they don’t feel like it, all while mostly giving fans false expectations of engagement).

Plus, idol communication is just a lot more fun for both sides when ppl clearly do it bc they want to.

And I agree that focus should go towards making the app run smoother anyways.


i never make a post on weverse so i don’t really care but i support the paid subscription for weverse live’s comments. there’s too many dumb comments nowadays that need filtering…
