MBC has made many fans angry as they cut GUGUDAN’s Mina’s face out of the poster of her, WANNA ONE’s Ong Seong Woo and NCT’s Mark so that fans can take photos with the two male idols.
Recently, the poster for MBC’s “Show! Music Core” is going viral online for having the images of the show’s new MCs: WANNA ONE’s Ong Seong Woo, NCT’s Mark and GUGUDAN’s Mina. It can be seen from this poster that Mina’s face has been cut out so that fans can place their own faces in to take pictures with the two male stars.
Many netizens have expressed their anger towards MBC for their disrespectful act, which is looking down on the GUGUDAN’s member. However, when fans pointed out their wrongdoing, the broadcast station only simply responds, “It’s unfixable. We’ll notice this next year,” which caused an uproar.
This is not the first time MBC was caught in a biased scandal, as they used to be criticized for designing TWICE’s image to be much bigger than VIXX, despite the fact that the boy group is TWICE’s senior.
Fans are reportedly flooding in with hateful comments towards MBC,
“Ok, the fans there were also not comfortable with this. Do you know how serious it is to cut out an artist’s face? Since Jennie’s incident, I have no good impression of MBC, so sexist.”
“Wow isn’t this too much. They should have at least respected her.”
“If you want to let fans take pictures with the other two, just make another poster without Mina.”
“Wow, Korea is unbelievable sometimes. I’m Ong Seong Woo’s fan, but this is just wrong.”
“Discrimination towards females idols huh? You should think of girl idols’ fans as well.”
Not only Mina’s fans but Ong Seong Woo and Mark’s fans also think this action of MBC is unacceptable. So what is your opinion?
