1. [+754, -28] Mnet always plays so dirty...
2. [+731, -116] No wonder a few trainees were maliciously edited while JellyFish trainees, who are under the CJ branch, are shown as angels ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ for example, JellyFish trainee Kim Se Jung benefited the most out of this, no?
3. [+541, -13] Of course ㅋㅋ Mnet is infamous for malicious edits from 'Superstar K' to 'SMTM' and 'Unpretty Rap Star', these contracts don't even surprise me
4. [+99, -6] It honestly says a lot more about the producers for editing things in the certain way that they do. They know that this could negatively impact a kid's future and yet they edit her clips with malicious intent. JYP needs to take Somi out of the show, they're just going to ruin her image.
5. [+107, -9] Kim Se Jung is perfect in all areas of skills, character, and looks. I genuinely support her debut. However, instead of letting her shine on her own, Mnet purposely edits clips to make it look like she's a rival with Jun Somi, adding clips of Somi looking upset at Kim Se Jung. Mnet is trash. You can tell that they're biased towards trainees from companies under their network branch. What're they doing to these kids with dreams ㅡㅡ
6. [+68, -3] Wow, this is bad... especially the part about trainees not getting paid... Is Mnet saying they should be grateful for even getting a chance to be on TV??????? Talk about power tripping..
7. [+62, -3] The trainees are paid $0 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I see a lot of red flags being raised by broadcast organizations and child labor agencies ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
1. [+126, -3] Are Mnet thugs???
2. [+120, -3] This is pretty much a slave contract...
3. [+105, -3] Those Mnet trash power tripping again
4. [+26, -2] Sad that these trainees had to sign this contract knowing the terms because they had no other choice...
5. [+15, -0] Power tripping
1. [+97, -2] That's scary, I wouldn't sign it but I guess they had to for that public screentime
2. [+75, -3] The industry is just that competitive... tsk tsk tsk
3. [+64, -1] If Mnet is paying them $0, then does that mean their agency is paying them instead??? Because that's problematic if no one is paying them at all
4. [+16, -0] Slave contract...
