Many fans are unhappy about level A trainees' special stage on 'M Countdown'.

On the April 27 episode, 15 of the level A trainees on 'Produce 101' season 2 held a special stage with ''Pick Me''. The boys put on an impressive performance, however, fans are rather angry than happy because of the ''unfair'' screen time. 

It's claimed that center Lee Dae Hwi received the spotlight while others made little to no appearance.

Comments of complaints stated, "Wow look at those other A ranked trainees not getting any screen time. Seriously this is getting worse. Later on, it's going to be like Dae Hwi and Friends and I hope that will not happen. I know he's the center everyone but this stage was for all the A ranked trainees."

Other netizens commented, "Ok, so yeah I understand when it was with 101 trainees before but now its 15 of them. Is it that hard to give each of them one shot?", "This is ridiculous. It's always Lee Dae Hwi and two others next to him. The other A level trainees did not practice that hard to be back dancers", "Some of them appeared for like .03 seconds.."

Watch their special stage in the clip above. Do you also find their screen time unfair?

i'm kinda surprised this Dae Hwi is so popular cause he doesn't really seem that special. Like if by looks he's far from it, by talent, it seems a lot more are talented. By charm, many other ones are cuter

I know Daehwi is very talented and a good all-rounder, but I really just don't find him interesting at all. :/  He makes for a very bland center imo.

This is worse than Twice considering how they promote Daehwi and Nayeon. Twice is like 40% Nayeon and 60% 8 other members while Produce 101 is like 50% Daehwi 20% Famous ones [ex. Samuel, Moon Bok] and 30% the rest. Daebak

This ins't Daehwi's fault it's the cameraman so Netizens need to shut it. Also it wasn't even that focused on him, it's just that he is at the point of the triangle and there are a lot of center shots (like always) which makes it seem like the camera is trying to show him when really they are just trying to do a wide shot of the entire group. They don't close up on Daehwi that often. Also, if you look at the youtube comments literally everyone is talking about Kang Daniel and him standing out.

True. Dont hate him ppl

aceisphat Friday, April 28, 2017

it's perfectly logical since he's in the center. there is little to no formation change unlike other groups, the camera will naturally focus right in the middle.

yesungturtle Friday, April 28, 2017

He is in the center so it's only logical that he will get more screen time, it's not like he chose that position for himself. I doubt they had time to change their formation so everyone could be seen. This was just one performance of one song, don't hate on Daehwi just bc he is more popular than others, boy didn't do anything.

well, it's MNET we're talking about. so..

brok38 Friday, April 28, 2017

I pity Daehwi as more haters would most likely come out since he was given favorable screentime by MNET..which btw was not his fault..if you'll notice, it seems like the hate comments is already affecting him..he's not as upbeat as his perf in the first video or the one in the baseball field..why not suggest the choreographer to change the choreo coz the cameramen is also having a hard time trying to focus on someone at the back..

Lol. Them fans are always angry. I'm just thankful these guys had an opportunity to have a special stage. Hell B to F didn't even get a chance on this!

This is what Chungha has been complaining about. The damn screentime. Please, pay attention to the other trainees on A class and on the other classes as well, not just the ones that are on top. There are a lot of hidden gems out there.
