SBS makes the exact mistake WINNER fans were afraid of with Wanna One's variety show

winner, Wanna One
SBS has made the exact mistake that WINNERfans were afraid of.

When Wanna One's new reality show 'Wanna City' was announced, many Inner Circles were annoyed because of the similarity to 'WINNER CITY', the name WINNER's team is called. The show had aired online on SBS' online platform 'Mobidic', and protest by WINNER fans had gone ignored despite trending on Twitter. The situation had gotten bad enough that WINNER themselves had mentioned the situation on an Instagram post.

(The highlighted tag reads, "Winner City is ours anyway, so it's okay...")

However, the situation was brought up to light once again when SBSmade a fatal error and called the show 'WINNER CITY' instead of 'Wanna City' as the title was. This was exactly what Inner Circles had been worried about - the two titles were so similar that they could be easily mistaken for the other, or a small typo could make one the other.

Fans commented, "If even you guys were going to get confused, why did you name it like that..", "This is not the fault of either the fans or the idol, but SBS Mobidic. We protested by email and DM as soon as the teaser was uploaded, so 'WINNER CITY' trended the same day the teaser came out. They ignored our opinions and they're confusing it themselves... If you think we're still being too touchy, look what happens when you search 'Wanna City' and 'WINNER CITY' and look at the related topics. Then you'll know why we're like this", "What we were worried about became reality...", and more.

What do you think about the situation?
