On June 17, Big Hit Entertainment announced that it is finally opening its doors to female applicants. Unfortunately, there’s a catch! Here’s how fans are reacting to the news so far.

3. Does this count as experience?
4. *Googles “how to be a Japanese citizen”*
"BIGHIT WILL BE ACCEPTING FEMALE TRAINEES (BUT ONLY WHO BORN IN JAPAN)"
"BTS WILL BE HAVING A FACETIME WITH J-ARMYS"
"BTS WILL BE HAVING ANOTHER MOVIE BUT ONLY IN JAPAN"
LITERALLY NO ONE:
