'Produce 101' trainee Kim Yong Guk's words have rekindled concerns about the 'Produce 101' concert.

The 'concert team' had been heavily protested by fans who had been worried that the 24 boys who didn't make it into the top 11 would merely end up being back up dancers for the 11. While Mnet had stated that would not be the case, Chun Entertainment's Kim Yong Guk (Jin Long Guo)'s words during a live interview is causing concerns again.

During a Facebook live with fellow Chun Entertainment trainee Kim Si Hyun, Kim Yong Guk was asked about how practice for the concert was going. He replied, "Out of the 35, except the 11 who made it, the other trainees seemed to be really dejected that they had not made it into the 11." He quickly added, "But we are thankful that we can have a concert even though we didn't debut."

The comment has refueled the same concerns, especially because YMC Entertainment had revealed that Wanna One would have group stages, unit stages, and solo stages during the concert, which would leave no time for the other trainees. Many are pointing out that even though Mnet had denied rumors, it's turning out to be exactly what fans were concerned about - that the 24 trainees were just being used to spotlight the top 11.

You can check out the interview below with his comment at 19:00.

Mnet snake, as if they haven't suffered enough, now they have to be back up dancers. I feel bad for the guys, especially for those that were in the final and almost debut.

I'm not even surprised by mnet and ymc anymore. It sounds like Top 11 + 90 Others, even though it should be about them all. Don't call it a Produce 101 concert if you're not even gonna give others the spotlight as well.

I hope those Nu'est boyz show up to support THEIR boi Minhyun! Set some examples for these kids who got votes from their fans and are 'too dejected' to show up. Some people spend years being a backup singer/dancer before making it big. FFS go out, get some sun, give the voters who voted for them a chance to see them, and last but not least, ENJOY DA MUSIC!

if theyre going to do unit stages anyway, why not put in the other trainees for those unit stages. they only rly have produce 101 songs to sing and the rest of the members of their team will be there, so why not perform together. they could make the stages slightly more centered on the top 11, but at least put the other trainees in if theyre there anyway

I will wait for the concert to judge but I would want to see more of the eliminated contestants at the moment since Wanna Once will have a full year dedicated only for them. Its not right to stab an already wounded heart so the producers should consider that the fans will not just support the winners but the rest as well.

That's bullshit and mnet knows it!! Why even have them there if they will be used as backup dancers 😤😤 if that was me, I wouldn't want to be there either 😡 Mnet should rot in hell😤😤

I would be depressed too fk you mean? Looking at the top 11 is looking at a future, money, fame, and just overall a secure lifestyle.
