Netizens accuse Mnet of openly biasing a Korean contestant in Girl Planet 999
That is former Produce 48 contestant Kim Dayeon. They think that she will be promoted by Mnet as the center of the new girl group.
The survival show ‘Girls Planet 999’ is entering a sprint race, looking for the 9 most promising faces for the next project girl group from Mnet station. Therefore, screen time is a factor that almost determines the “go or stay” fate of the top 30. This is also the topic that netizens pulled out to dissect after episode 9 of the show aired.
The main character of this controversy is Kim Dayeon – the center of the Korean team and a former contestant of Produce 48. The reason why netizens are suddenly angry is that the girl was favored too openly in episode 9, more than 50% of the program’s duration. Every situation occurring in this broadcast is said to be directing viewers’ attention towards Dayeon and overwhelming the performance of other trainees.
