Producer Han Dong Chul revealed a bizarre, unexpected, and provocative reason for why he created the show 'Produce 101'. 


During an interview with 'High Cut', he was given the question, "Guys probably will not be interested in the male version of 'Produce 101'. How do you plan to attract male viewers?" PD answered, "Female or male, people will watch it if the program has a good, strong format. It's a matter of quality."

He continued, "I'm not sure how to say this, but the reason why I first created the female version is because I wanted to make healthy pornography for guys. Even though the contestants just seem like a younger sister or niece, aren't they adorable? I wanted to create a type of porn that gives you that feeling, and the male version will also serve as that type of porn for female viewers. I once heard that Rain's performance was like porn for girls. The male version of 'Produce 101' aims to fill in that fantasy, and if it's entertaining enough then male viewers will watch it too." 


Netizens, grossed out by the PD's intentions, commented, "WTF, he is sick", "He is seriously disgusting", "The majority of the contestants are underage. It's so gross how he had that kind of thought in mind when making the program. It gives me chills", "Okay.. That was something that I wish I never knew."

    Maybe his usage of the word "porn" was "a bit much" or too provocative. No off limits body parts were shown (unless you think legs are too scandalous) and no sex acts where performed. I didn't think of the show as being scandalous. Just a showcase of talented, attractive girls who happen to be young.I don't care THAT much about boy groups. They all seem pretty much the same to me within their various concepts (cute, hip-hop, etc). So, I won't be as interested in seeing a male version of Produce 101. But I will watch a 2nd season of the female version of Produce 101.

    What on earth.. I laughed because that can't be serious, especially when you have underage girls on there.
