The conflict between the fans and the two agencies arose when Kang Daniel did not receive the center position despite being promised the spot after ranking 1st on 'Produce 101' season 2. Allegedly, two fan cafes - Kang Daniel's Naver fan cafe and Daum fan cafe - have decided to band together to address the issue, claiming, "Voting was carried out via a paid voting system, and it was promised that the member who received first place would be given the center position. However, despite the paid voting system, Kang Daniel did not stand in the center spot. CJ E&M stated that now that the program has ended, they do not have any responsibility on the matter." They continued, "We fans addressed the issues to the two companies and wanted feedback but did not receive any."
They also added, "The official fan cafes of Naver and Daum, who felt the seriousness of the matter, requested an impactful choreography change without harming the other members of the group. Also, a Daum petition for the issue has gathered nearly 2,000 people." They finished by saying, "Some fans of Kang Daniel personally asked a lawyer for help and focused on the fact that people paid for those votes. Currently, we are looking over the lawyers whom we will hire for a detailed and perfect legal composition. From August 19, we will be recruiting litigators and will proceed to file a lawsuit to acquire rights for Kang Daniel."
Do you think Kang Daniel is not receiving his full 1st place privileges in Wanna One?
