'Produce 101' season 2 fans are furious at the announcement of a 'concert team'.


The concert team will be made from boys whose final ranks are #12-#35. These 24 boys will only be at the concert for the next two years, and will act as backup dancers for the top 11 boys while not even being able to debut.

Fans are furious at the announcement, and a petition has been created, signed by over 7,500 fans in 17 hours. The final goal of the petition is 10,000 fans. The petition reads, "The trainees are not a way to make money, but people. They can't be used however the program sees fit just because they were on the show."


Mnet merely stated that the concert team was being considered and not a confirmed decision. What do you think of the idea?

    One *likes* to believe that CJ E&M Agency is *trying* to do that which will *benefit* the 12-35 rated candidates, along with generating some money income too. As *opposed* to EXPLOITING them for financial gain somehow. I am 'on record' (previously) as stating that I favored to have the Candidates get a DIRECT FINANCIAL PAYMENT ($$$$) of some *minimal* kind for participating in the PD101-2 TV Show. It seems a bit *unfortunate* that the 1-11 rated *winning* Candidates get *most* of the benefit from the TV Show. Finishing 12th must be a *big* disappointment. I really do not know what to think. Other than that I do *hope* that some attention will be 'paid' by CJ E&M Agency to helping out the 12-35 ranked Candidates too ; and not just the 'big winners.'

    Who the hell would do that? Not only do you have to watch the people who won, but you wouldn't be able to make your debut? Mnet's freaking crazy

    Sorry, but I don't like this idea. I wonder how the trainees #12-35 would feel about this. If they are okay with this, then I guess I would respect their decision.
