* [[invoked]]JustHereForGodzilla: The only reason the Real Girls Project drums up any excitement at all is because of Suji, due to her being Suah's identical sister. Notice how nearly all of the comments during the teams' first broadcast performances are directed at wanting to see Suji, and ''just'' Suji. This is why Kang advises them all to work harder and get better at their idol activities; since everyone is looking at Suji superficially, they need to prove that they have talent worth looking at as well.
