NU’EST ended the promotion with a terrible mistake from Mnet: They miscalculated the points

NU’EST’s fans are annoyed by the lack of professionalism of a station.

On “M Countdown” of May 16, there were many epic comeback stages of EXID, LADIES ‘CODE, Weki Meki and BVNDIT. At the end of the show, NU’EST was announced as the winner of last week’s against OH MY GIRL with a difference of only 51 points, earning the fourth trophy with “BET BET”.

However, at the end of the day, Mnet announced that OH MY GIRL is the true winner of the show. The reason is that the station mistakenly calculated the social media category (20% of the total score). Accordingly, the girl group of WM reached a maximum of 2000 instead of 1500 points. Therefore, they won over Pledis’s boy group (7.668) with 8.117 points.

Thus, it seemed that NU’EST would have a first full comeback after Minhyun returns from Wanna One but the group accidentally ended their promotion with a terrible mistake from Mnet. Although an apology has been sent to these two groups, the netizens are still frustrated by the station’s unprofessionalism.

As for OH MY GIRL, the netizens also feel regret for them because this is the first win on “M Countdown” in their career. But just because of Mnet’s mistake, the group couldn’t have a complete victory and a happy celebration stage with their fans at the end of the show.
