I-Land Mnet/BigHit's upcoming show under fire

USER CONTENT

Several insiders have criticized an upcoming Mnet/BigHit collaboration project even before it started.


The staff are compaining about the amount of work they are expected to do, as well as safety on set of the programme. One insider commented:


'The production costs are lacking because of all of the transportation we need to arrange, items we have to purchase, props we have to move, and people we have to hire to move them. There are more and more complaints as the staff have to use their personal cards for these purchases.'


The biggest concern is, however, the negligance towards staff and participants' safety and little that has been done about it, although the issue had been discussed during internal meetings. One staff member fell off the stage 3 days before the filming started and one of the participants ended up in the emergency room with fractured arm.

'After this, they did not take safety measures, but just modified the stage a little bit and received a written notice of security by some witnesses. In order to reduce their production costs, they are not using cleaning services or planning teams, and even outsourcing PD’s. But in the end, the outsourced PD’s boycotted.'


Apparently staff have also been asked to sign petitions in favour of Ahn Joon Young and Kim Yong Beom who are currently under trial for vote manipulation on Produce series.

    I just wanna say that i despise Mnet as a company and after everything that happened in the past I was disappointed when Big Hit announced this. First an snake always an snake. I do understand that they have to work with the companies and channels that are there but still, not happy.

    May I add that I'm not a fan of survival shows, specially this idol style (but when I say this people always think that it's because I'm against x groups or entertainment companies... haters always think that everyone is the same as them) so again another decision of big hit that I don't stand by.

    not sure why BigHit thought it was a good idea to partner up with MNET just months after the Produce 101 rigged votes scandal.
