Netizens express worry over upcoming male version of “Produce 101”

With the success of Mnet survival show Produce 101 so far, the broadcasting station recently announced that they would be producing a version of the show featuring male trainees. 

In response to the announcement, however, many netizens expressed their concern over the upcoming show. According to netizens, the current Produce 101 is watched by both male fans who want to see female trainees, as well as female fans who develop girl crushes. However, netizens are worried that the male version of the show won’t have as many viewers because male viewers wouldn’t want to watch a show about male trainees.
