Netizens criticize Produce 101 “obvious bias”

Mnet survival show Produce 101 has become incredibly popular, but the show has continued to come under fire for being biased towards certain contestants. 

For example, although many of the trainees were praised for their performances on the latest episode of the show, netizens criticized the show for awarding first prize to trainee Kim So Hye. Many netizens have claimed that although she has inferior skills, Mnet has insisted on focusing on her every episode, and some have even gone as far as to claim that Produce 101 is just a documentary about her.

[+ 790, – 25] Yes the entire team was lacking compared to the others but the 2 members weren’t bad enough to explain why Sohye won 1st place.

[+ 765, – 43] Yes she is attractive. But when I saw Sohye win 1st I thought the show was made for her.. Honestly she doesn’t deserve it. The voting system is messed. Did this happens because the Avengers has too many members? They say it’s a national production project but we can’t trust the votes. Such a turn off

[+ 515, – 59] Her visual is definitely top class at least
