Producer Ahn Joon Young of 'Produce 101' season 2 discussed controversial topics regarding the program in an interview with Star News

The competition series was surrounded by many controversies this year. Some of the issues regarded the producer's 'evil editing' (manipulative editing) and 'PD Pick' (giving more screen time to the trainee of the PD's choice).

Ahn PD shared his thoughts on the issue and emphasized that he never had any intentions. 

He said, "I have never done 'evil editing' as a producer. I've also never encouraged tension."

As for the 'PD Pick', Ahn PD revealed that he felt sorry for the trainees who were accused of receiving such benefit. He said, "I'm actually sorry to them. They were on screen because they worked hard but were told they are a 'PD Pick' so I felt sorry."

He further explained, "I didn't talk to the trainees that much. The trainees watch the broadcast and it could've caused misunderstanding if I'm spotted talking a lot to some so I didn't talk to them at all. I've tried hard. I didn't want to get misunderstood and I didn't want the trainees to be misunderstood either."

"I have never done evil editing as a producer." LIE.He highlighted the Avengers Team and made Daehwi look bad and get hated.Edited out Hyungseob's apology.Some trainees BARELY got screen time.I was so upset! It would've been different if the screen time was distributed more evenly.Did he think we'd believe such an obviously lie?!

Evil edit Baekho,Cutting Hyungseop's apology,focusing too much on the whole avengers thing making Daewi look bad,some trainees got so little screen time . I'm happy a show like this makes trainees known and gives them opportunity,even those who get eliminate get at least a little attention but this type of editing could be manipulative sometimes .

after the season 2 done we sure heard a lot of BULLSHIT from the PD. you need to re-watch again to make sure that you really not do any EVIL EDITING or PD PICK. our dongho is one of your evil editing victim while some old LOVEs has known he is just cute and nice boy and some of new fans just found it out during the trainees self cam or PD101 BTS. I'm feel so grateful that you create this kind of show which is a lot of ppls has known that there are 98 talented trainees but its a lie if i say im not hate you as well. better stop make any kind of reason regarding the show
