1. [+1,421, -52] The reason we must vote for Moon Bok: he's already served in the army. Let's go, Moon Bok.
2. [+1,060, -50] He's not even a singer trainee, why are they putting a model on the show?
3. [+687, -44] Even if he's under YG, he's actually under K+ which is a completely different company. It still is weird to think that someone from YG is in this ㅋㅋ
4. [+611, -27] K+ is a completely different agency from YG, like the relationship between Loen and Starship
5. [+49, -4] He may be a model but it's not like YG put in their actual singer trainees... because if they did, then they'd be pretty much confirmed for the center spot
6. [+29, -1] The reason big agencies aren't actually participated in this show is not because they don't need the extra promo but because they have no plans for a male group yet... YG has iKON, JYP has Got7, and SM has NCT. When do they have time for another male group... It'd be a waste for them to expose their trainees and have them blow up only to let them waste away as trainees again. Look at Jun Somi... she has to promote solo for a while because JYP has no girl group plans.
7. [+18, -2] He may be a model but I feel like he's probably more talented than the actual trainees. Even if he's under a subsidiary of YG, they still care about talent... I doubt they would've let him on the show if he didn't have something to show.
8. [+19, -3] YG and YG K+ are different so I don't think YG knows about this
9. [+24, -5] He's under a different CEO and model agency although a subsidiary of YG, doesn't really make him a YG trainee;;;
10. [+9, -2] Well singers go into acting, why can't models go into singing if they have the talent for it?
