Of course, they are co-workers. You don’t put 9 people in a group together and they all become best friends or brothers.A boygroup that just gives me very bad vibes overall is neo cult tech. They have had scandals in the past where a member was caught saying he didn't like another member's personality, and then that same member was also said to argue and fight a lot with another member to the point where they had to switch roommates. It seems to me they don't all get along, and feel more like co workers. I've seen videos of them where most of the members target one of them and make fun of him in a very rude way. Some of them seem to have very difficult personalities. SM even creates ships between the members to make them more appealing, like the yuttt4 and m4rk ship that so suddenly became a thing, and both members seem to push that narrative a lot even though it's very obvious its fake because that member yutttt4 used to be shipped a lot with another member before he changed
When I was training to be a nurse, we lived in a group of 9 or 10 and there were some pretty horrible disagreements.
The disagreements you speak of above happened several years ago and the boys involved were still only around 16 or 17.
If you watch all of their videos, you will find that it isn’t always the same member that is targeted. They tease each other regularly and they often discuss it. No one is being picked on deliberately. You have to remember that these videos are about entertainment.
I can think of one member who might be the person you are talking about and to be fair, yes he gets teased a lot, but he also does a lot of teasing. If you ever see any of the members interviewed about that member, they all talk about how much they admire and respect them and he is very highly regarded by other members.
Yuta and Mark have not developed a sudden friendship. If you watch videos regularly over the course of the last year, you will see the friendship develop. They talk about being like brothers to each other. Yuta is several years older than Mark and he says if he had a little brother he’d want him to be like Mark. Despite his image, Yuta is a really sweet, caring guy. At the start of his friendship with Winwin, he looked after him and helped him out. They became really close friends. That’s just how Yuta is. It’s only weird if you make it weird. The whole shipping thing is just a joke.
