On the 3rd episode of Mnet “Produce X 101”, viewers are getting more excited as they get to see trainees choosing their team and songs for the group evaluation.
Source Music’s Kim HyunBin gained attention during this episode because he was the only trainee who knew BTS debut track, ‘No More Dream’.
Aside from that, he was also seen trying to hype up the rest of his team when they were receiving vocal lessons from mentor Lee SeokHoon.
However, things did not go smoothly as Kim HyunBin was seen very tired and exhausted with the slow progress during their practice. He did not seem to be speaking ‘nicely’ to his team mates and did not understand why they were taking a long time in finalizing a part of the dance when it could be done quickly. In the end, he was called for a talk 1:1 with another of his teammate.
Kim HyunBin was mentioned for his hard work in teaching the rest of his teammates but because of the way he had acted, the other trainee mentioned that he felt that it was ‘wrong’. Hearing those words, Kim HyunBin admitted that he was feeling pressurized by the amount of skilled and talented trainees and just wanted things to go well. He also later apologized to the rest of his team for behaving that way.
With that being said, things seemed to be going well during the actual group evaluation with audience.
However, netizens had pointed out once again that Mnet had started its ‘evil editing’ as they had also missed out Kim HyunBin’s name during the start of the stage for ‘No More Dream’.
However, Mnet later uploaded the stage performance on Naver TV Cast with Kim HyunBin’s name and position after the mistake.
Many netizens shared their displease with how Mnet had framed Kim HyunBin in a bad way on various online communities.
One Korean netizen also used a metaphor explaining the situation of Kim HyunBin. He or she explained that Kim HyunBin was trying to save his team but instead was being called out for his attitude.
It looks like many netizens are defending Kim HyunBin and shared that they will now start to vote for Kim HyunBin because of his hard work and knowledge.
Do you agree with the netizens?
