'Produce 101's Lim Young Min will be penalized for cheating.

He has been accused not only of cheating, but also of spoiling the ranking results to his girlfriend. Recently, fans who turned their backs on the trainee revealed that Lim Young Min cheated in the same way that Kang DanielKim Dong Bin, and Lee Ki Won had apologized and been penalized for. His brother told his friend to tell a KakaoTalk chatroom full of Lim Young Min fans that he wanted the songs "Never" and "Oh Little Girl", which is against the rules.

Mnet said, "When we checked with the label and Lim Young Min, he said he didn't tell his brother what song he wanted to do. However, we've confirmed that his brother did talk with the fans. He will be penalized for fairness, and we are currently discussing which route to take." Lim Young Min has also denied telling ranking results to his friends.

However, viewers aren't so convinced, questioning how his brother could have known what Lim Young Min wanted. Viewers are also aruging the spoiled results were too accurate to be mere coincidence as Lim Young Min jumped up quite a bit from his previous position of #12.

What do you think of the situation?

Overall, I think it's the brother is at fault. If Youngmin actually did tell his brother, then I don't find it wrong at all telling his family member what he wants. There's a ton of possibilities, maybe his brother didn't know he wasn't allow to share this information? And I don't think it's fair for penalizing him and not the others just because he did not apologize for something he didn't do.

actually its the same case as Kim Dong Bin yet he still was penelized so yeah they need to be fair

That 'to his girlfriend' part bothers me a lot. It's like they wrote 'RIP Lim Young Min's time on Produce 101-'. (101- because they were never 101). It's like Hunger Games in this show. You breathe, you die.

plus that girlfriend isn't wise enough for sharing all that info about Youngmin IF he is really in a relationship. She can't be anymore idiotic for getting him on the spotlight when he is a trainee on a wide known show.

Let's say that he actually has a girlfriend (not going to afirm he has one/not going to deny he has not) and he did tell her all this things...and she did reveal it. I don't think the proper term is 'spotlight'. Is actually a dead-end for him.

that was exactly my point haha. I was just frustrated while typing. seriously really tired of all these 'so called bfs/gfs" stomping upon these stars claiming they did this and that. What do they want from them? don't understand even as a korean myself..

No one can convince me that this show is about music or finding talents to form a boygroup. All those scandals and incidents are too many to be pure coincidence. I don't know about the viewer ratings of the girl version of Produce 101, but obviously they weren't high enough for MNET so they chose candidates with potential for drama to increase the number of viewers. Nothing is as attracting as scandals and the dark past of other people. Sad for those candidates who really believe in this show as their chance to become an idol ☹

coca2 Naruta Tuesday, May 30, 2017

kpopfandom2 Tuesday, May 30, 2017

exactly why i don't tell my brother anything

coca2 kpopfandom2 Tuesday, May 30, 2017

are you serious :p ?

kpopfandom2 coca2 Tuesday, May 30, 2017

not literally everything but not everything

THE WHOLE IDEA to let Fans choose the songs they perform is what is causing this "Cheating", Last Season they didnt let the fans choose it, and no issue happened, I really dunno why Mnet decided to make it such that fans will pick the songs they perform.

Because you have to watch to vote and to watch means more viewers

His brother probably knew his tastes. Also about the spoiler of his rank, the show stated that Young-min confessed that he didn't send anything like that and didn't even know the person who posted it so the "girlfriend" is not his girlfriend. Good job for not mentioning that part Allkpop.
