Just watched My Little TV ep. 32. The absence of Yujin/ IZone was surreal. Their live airing had >5x more viewers than any other segment!!! I can understand MBC cancelling IZone's appearance (as a group). Individuals tho...

Yet its hard to imagine IZone will be left untouched when even Mnet's head is taken down. If the 'top-20' were decided from the start, it means every group member got preferential treatment. Its just a matter of time before Idol School, P101 1&2 are implicated too.

Its sad coz some of the best groups came from these shows. And the truth is, we all knew the shows were rigged; the drama and final line-up were too perfect. The public was fine with it, as long as the fraud wasn't revealed. If only the #$$#!*&!! mutton brain who did the vote count didn't get sloppy (using the same multiples????), we'd all be blissfully unaware.

(Should we click our heels 3 times? "there's no place like home, there's no place like home...")

Seems that's about all anyone can do, for now.
