'Produce 101' has gotten rid of all illegal votes.

Mnet said, "To vote, some overseas fans are using a Chinese site to buy and sell CJ ONE accounts, and we confirmed that those accounts were being used to vote. We estimate about 2% of the total votes to be from these accounts that were bought and sold in China. We have made it so those voters cannot access the 'Produce 101' website. The illegal votes have been eliminated, but there were no changes in rank even when they were deleted. We are getting requests for the transaction of CJ ONE accounts on Chinese websites to be brought down. However, we believe it's realistically impossible to ban the transactions happening in various places."

    I voted for Nayoung last year, she debuted and what was the problem? I understand all of this 'national producer' stuff, but voting overseas is not that of a big deal, anyways I think most people give up after finding out how difficult is to create a Mnet account.

    It's sad that we can't vote from the US, that would be awesome if we could. But rules are rules.

    Not necessarily true though, Philippines knew Kpop. They loved 2ne1 (cause Dara) and Wonder Girls and their song "Nobody" was so popular everyone, legit everyone danced to it.

    i mean throughout the show, they've been trying to stress the fact to create a nation's boy group that the nation's producers will choose. sucks for us but i can see why mnet will try to block all international votes.
