[SPOILER] Mnet outrages fans by uploading the wrong top 11 results on 'Produce 101' season 2's Facebook

Fans are outraged by the careless mistake Mnet made on 'Produce 101' season 2's official Facebook page shortly after the final episode's broadcast on June 16.


This week, fans got to vote for and see the top 11 members to debut in 'Produce 101' season 2's final boy group, who will be promoting under the name Wanna One. After the broadcast, the show also took to its Facebook page to announce the top 11 trainees through a compiled image. However, they made a mistake by including 3 trainees who failed to place in the top 11. 

As you can see in the first image below of the incorrect image the staff initially posted, Pledis Entertainment trainees Kang Dong Ho (NU'EST's Baekho) and Kim Jong Hyun (NU'EST's JR) as well as Brave Entertainment's Kim Samuel were included in the top 11 announcement. In actuality, they ranked in at #13, #14, and #19, respectively. 

After realizing their mistake, Mnet corrected the image, adding in MMO's Yoon Ji Sung (#8), personal trainee Kim Jae Hwan (#4), and Ardor & Able's Ha Sung Woon (#11) in place of the three trainees from before.

Upon correcting the image, Mnet apologized, stating, "Hello, this is the administrator for 'Produce 101'. We apologize for the mistake of uploading the image posted at 3:20 PM KST on June 17. The image in question was a sample image, and we have fixed the mistake right away. We will make sure to pay closer attention to maintaining this page. We apologize once again."

Fans are outraged because the three trainees who were eliminated but had their photos in the incorrect image above were trainees whom many believed to have secured, or almost secured, spots in the top 11 debut group. Netizens commented, "Please do your job correctly", "It's like they're trying to kill us twice, and I'm already salty. Plus, they didn't even fix it all that quickly?", "Are you trying to make fun of people right now. They post that wrong image and dare say 'Congratulations'. They thought it would turn out that way and made it in advance. I'm so mad. They can't do anything right", and more.

No way would you create a 'sample image' using any of the actual trainees faces on them! They would just be your standard cutout silhouette image. Plus the fact that 8 out of the 11 actually made the final cut, very suspicious.

This is really fishy, I wouldn't be surprised if that "mistake" was the real result and Mnet altered it, but even if it was really a mistake they still messed it when they only showed the #11 posible trainees, that was an unfair move to the rest of them and it obviously had a big influence on the final result.

I just wish Sammy would stop getting screwed over. His entire career has been him being given opportunities and having them snatched away from him, and as a fan I just don't appreciate him being slept on so heavily.

O/T but these autoplay videos are annoying af. I don't even watch them.

Honestly wouldn't be surprised if YMC or someone else interfered to change the top 11. After all, just like SIXTEEN, an idol group requires the right mix to form a suitable concept and the right synergy as a group. Perhaps Jonghyun, Samuel and Dongho are too popular and strong as an individual and changes the intended image of the entire group (imagine Dongho performing anything else that isn't crazy sexy).

I agree. JYP brought Momo into the group after being eliminated and they are considered the top girl group right now. Why not YMC, the more the better lol

i prefered the first results tbh but oh well

I wouldn't be surprised if this was the real voting result and Mnet altered it to fit their vision for the group.

The biggest tragedy was to see jonghyun and samuel  fall of  the ranks!!

Kang_Saena Saturday, June 17, 2017

I'm hoping that they can create an I.B.I with the other 9 trainees (of course, Samuel would have to delay his solo debut... and I'm not sure about Nu'est promoting without Minhyun... will they?)

***screw it all!!! Everyone who was just as mad for samuel and jonghyun better be supporting them with whatever they do after wards! So when same comes out with that solo i  hope to see you all there for support  too! *****
