Netizens think it's unfair SBS completely cut out Red Velvet from the 'Ontact 2020 Gangnam Festival'


On November 2nd KST, the 'Ontact 2020 Gangnam Festival' aired on SBS. There were various artists performing, except the popular girl group Red Velvet was completely edited out from the concert.

The concert was prerecorded and Red Velvet performed three songs, "Psycho," "Bad Boy," and "Umpah Umpah." Red Velvet's performance was scheduled to be released as they were the last group to show their performance. However, the girl group was not seen at all at the '2020 Gangnam Festival'.

According to SBS the following day, Red Velvet was edited because of the insufficient broadcast time. SBS stated they had to edit the group out because the actual concert was longer than the time given to broadcast all the performances.

Despite SBS's explanation, many netizens speculate that Red Velvet had been edited out due to the recent controversy over Irene's attitude

Many Red Velvet fans were disappointed as netizens felt it was unfair for the rest of the members. Korean netizens have commented that none of the other members did wrong but were affected by the controversy and felt bad for the fellow girl group members.

Netizens commented, "I feel bad for the rest of the members. They didn't do anything wrong.", "When controversy strikes a boy group they don't get edited out though.", "This is so sad for the rest of the members. They got edited out because of one member.", "Is it hard to mosaic out Irene?", and "The other members didn't do wrong though."

I don't understand, is this even a big scandal? ... all of these consequences for scolding someone?

Did she actually do something ILLEGAL?

This scandal is just disproportionate... Is it forbidden for idols to get angry to the staff? Well, you assume that idols never cry because of the staffs then?

And please just be honest, nobody even know the reason WHY and can even quote just one word used by her in this conflict, but all of you assume her to be canceled. Why people are firmly so angry to her but with such a blurry context?

It disturbs me how people are not ashamed to show how much they take satisfaction to cancel someone so easily... just because a female idol dare to get angry... BUT without knowing the reason why and... even what she exactly said LOL

I really don't like the difference of treatment between female idols and male idols.

Sorry for Stays for using BangChan example, but this is a perfect realistic example of why an idol get angry against staff. You don't get angry for no reason.
