1. [+343, -29] Honestly speaking, it's probably because broadcast channels are too lazy. Imagine having to deal with the paper work for a girl group from all different agencies. They have nothing to lose by passing on them for their variety shows so why not just go the easier route and skip them...
2. [+302, -26] It's funny because when the show was at an all time popularity, all the public broadcast shows were parodying 'Pick Me' and copying the dance, song, and concept and now they're not allowing the actual group on their shows?
3. [+324, -73] Why does 'Infinity Challenge' get to film at 'SMTM' but the '101' members aren't allowed on public broadcast varieties ㅋㅋㅋ
1. [+3,255, -85] All Mnet did was use the kids for their viewer ratings and now they don't care what happens to them
2. [+2,937, -142] Mnet's done with the group, the individual agencies don't seem to care, and YMC doesn't seem to want to invest anything more in the group. Their new track is a disappointment on the digital charts... This is exactly as people expected would happen. Survival shows only offer flash in the pan popularity.
3. [+1,914, -113] It's sad but I knew this would happen. If only we can see them on 'Weekly Idol'...
4. [+396, -19] Mnet should've been the one to manage the group, I don't know why they passed them to another weird agency... It's like they sucked all the sweet flavor out of them so now they're just throwing them to the side.
5. [+302, -16] Mnet made them so Mnet should manage them. Mnet thinks they can absolve themselves of all responsibility after seeing their digital rank fail? Pick them up and raise them right.

1. [+2,336, -72] The channels already put in the pressure and now they're passing the blame to the PDs ㅋㅋㅋㅋ It's like when your boss says you can do whatever you want but he prefers it a certain way so you know what to do ^^
2. [+1,617, -46] There's obviously an underlying reason that PDs are canceling their appearances. Obviously they don't want to promote a group from a rival channel.
3. [+1,462, -196] Please don't put the group on restrictions, it's not fair. You channels all used the 'Pick Me' concept, don't block the future of these young girls.
4. [+246, -25] Didn't this happen to JYJ too? The channels all claimed there weren't restrictions but all of their appearances kept getting canceled. You think we don't know what's really going on?
5. [+138, -9] The PDs are acting on free will and all canceling their appearances? ㅋㅋㅋ What a blatant lie
Article: [Exclusive] Im Nayoung becomes IOI's leader by vote
Source: Star News via Nate
1. [+609, -45] Please try and control the center wannabe who keeps gunning for the position when she doesn't deserve it...
2. [+578, -60] Do something about the greedy center member.
3. [+387, -15] I feel like she'd be a calm leader and do well in her position
4. [+75, -5] I never hated Yoo Yeonjung but the new video made her look so bad;;; I get that it was filmed with them just playing around but you could tell how desperate she was to stand out. It's a shame because she's a good singer and would get a lot of support if she just managed herself but her greed is written all over her face.
5. [+71, -5] I get that Yoo Yeonjung's young but her greed is too much. The other members obviously want the center spot and to stand out too but being humble is a part of being in the industry. After this project group is over and she goes back to debut in her original agency, she's going to be starting with antis...
