Weki Meki recently performed their title track “Siesta” on Mnet‘s M Countdown because of fans’ nominations on Mnet’s new series, ROAD TO MAX.
Weki Meki released “Siesta” as part of their I Am Me. album in November 2021.
Although the comeback was well-received, there hasn’t yet been an announcement from Fantagio Entertainment about their next comeback.
It's unbelievable that one of the most talented groups in kpop is 1 year without comeback, in 4 years they still don't have a lightstick and full album, it's sad to think that they could be much bigger if it wasn't for fantagio WEKI MEKI DESERVES BETTER pic.twitter.com/dYLGjw09lz

Many fans have continually voiced concerns about Fantagio Entertainment allegedly neglecting the almost five-year group who still don’t have a first win or lightstick.
I hope fantagio can treat weki meki even better. Give them lightsticks & the concert. They deserve to be known by many people. Yesterday's performance made me emotional. So many K-Lings are looking forward to their wonderful works.
Pls, treat and promote wekimeki better than ever pic.twitter.com/wbbSodIy1o

Multiple members of Weki Meki have even secured their own individual schedules without any promotions from their company.
Lucy is in another drama and we don't know anything from fantagio as always?!

the fact that lua debuted as an actress in a play few days ago and we only found out about it because someone posted it on a blog while fantagio didn't say A WORD shows how little they care about weki meki

But thanks to their devoted fanbase, Weki Meki was able to perform a stage on M Countdown in front of fans for the first time since they released “Tiki Taka” in 2019.
WHEN YOU THINK IT THROUGH.. THEY HAVEN'T HEARD CHEERING SICNE TIKI TAKA….

Their fans started a loud fanchant at the beginning of “Siesta” that visibly made multiple members emotional. With Suyeon, Sei, Elly, and Lucy unable to hide their smiles at the beginning of the song.
Sei especially could not hide her reaction to hearing fans cheering.
The members’ happiness was especially meaningful since this was the group’s first performance of “Siesta” with all eight members. During their promotions in 2021, Doyeon injured her wrist and couldn’t participate.
