On May 8, Mnet officially announced their final decision on Kang Daniel. They stated, "We consider fairness first and foremost. We have recently found out that the online votes by nation's producers have been influenced by a trainee. As the penalty, the trainee will not be able to use the song that caused the issue."

This means that Kang Daniel will continue in the competition but will not be able to use Deep House song "Never" for the concept round. 

Meanwhile, the trainee apologized for his wrongdoings via Instagram, stating, "I will think more on my actions from now on. I am sorry.

I knew they would do something like this. I mean, it makes the most logical sense.

The Ha MinHo incidence in part saved his ass. It couldve been worse punishment.

Although I think this okay,  most of the comments on the Korean sites are saying how this isn't a penalty since most of the trainees can't get their song choice anyways so how is not letting Daniel Kang get his song choice even a penalty. They're saying that Daniel Kang should get the leftover song - that that would be a fair penalty. Again, I think Mnets decision is okay since they're eliminating the bias he initiated, while also letting the national producers pick for him. Also, the fan had directly messaged him and he probably thought his "response" was only going to that fan....  Not the whole world and certainly not all over the news!

How was it found out btw? I didn't catch any details. Was it the fan who exposed it?

I'm glad they didn't kick him from the show. because I'm starting to like him now. he looks like a good person. and he is so caring to the younger contestant.
