Rankings for Mnet's 'Idol School' manipulated 233 times during show

AKP STAFF

The rankings for Mnet's 'Idol School' were reportedly manipulated a total of 233 times during the show.

According to notes by the '12th Subcommittee to Broadcast Deliberation' on September 28, "From episodes 2 to 11 of the survival style music show that is selecting girl group members, the rankings were manipulated 233 times in total. At the time of the 4th elimination announcements, 10 trainees who were up for elimination remained in the competition, while 10 trainees who were voted to stay were eliminated unfairly."

Reports further revealed Chief Producer Kim, who was previously sentenced to 1 year in prison and fined 10 million Won (~$8,400 USD) for fraud and obstruction of justice, reached a settlement with the trainees who were unfairly ranked, including Lee Haein. She actually ranked in 1st place, but her placement was manipulated by producers. 

The subcommittee also stated audition programs such as 'Idol School' have a social impact due to their public interest and the futures of the contestants. 

Stay tuned for updates.

If you're gonna manipulate the votes to THAT extent, why even bother? They should have just debuted those 9 from the start and not bothered with the show because this is just going to forever tarnish fromis_9's name when those girls had nothing to do with the results whatsoever.

Everyone participating in a Mnet survival show becomes a victim. Mnet knows how to manipulate votes, evil edit, and create drama to attract viewers but when it's affecting the livelihoods of the contestants? The funny thing is knetz gonna talk shit about Mnet but also bash contestants in future Mnet shows because of an evil edit. Hopefully, knetz actually learn that Mnet is trash and take their content lightly.
