    Dongbin technically didn't cheat though.... It was his father who told the fans...

    I don't know Kim Dong Bin's real personality but MNET portrayal of him leaves me a really bad impression of him... Now this, I don't know how to feel about him TT. And Kang Daniel I am pretty disappointed! I'd always supported you :(

    The thing with DongBin is that he still needs a couple more years of training to be able to debut, so he was pretty frustrated in the show, since his skills weren't good enough, but I don't think he is a bad kid at all. About Daniel, I sincerely think he wasn't even trying to cheat, he was just answering to a fan in an indirect way which song he liked the most. Of course he made a mistake and he deserved to be punished, since communicating with fans by SNS is forbbiden, but I don't think he did that with bad intentions.

    I'd thought their mobile phones were confiscated (like in Season 1), but I guessed not. Having n mobile phone for 4 months would suck for the trainees but having them seems to be causing too much controversies...

    It seems their mobile phones are confiscated only when they are recording.

    I still don't understand what is the penalty... Anyway it's good that mnet show they apologized since korean demand it, and even two of them left the show. So they will leave in peace, nobody will badmouthing them, i hope.

    This won't happen in the first place if Mnet allowed the trainees to pick their own songs.

    Again, there's no need for them to apologize because i'm sure that everything's all forgiven and the scandal is already forgotten at this point.

    I am not sure that it was even a "scandal". They did not really managed to "maliciously influence" anything. The whole thing is ridiculous.

    What the hell are you talking about? You know that we are living in a world where people would personally think that they can get away with calling out somebody or something for what they really think it is. And that was especially the case here with the three male trainees on the show. Of course everything is all forgiven and forgotten and we now must move on to bigger things in life.

    It was expected. What's the point of this article? They already got punished long time ago, no need to rub the salt in the wound.
