1. [+612, -20] Mnet needs to die for putting some right-wing b*tch in the center 👊😠

2. [+469, -20] They're better suited for AV, it's ridiculous that they're' on this show

3. [+460, -12] I bet you that if this season doesn't fail, Japan's going to start hyping it up as the return of J-Pop ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ They've been wishing so hard for K-Pop to fail and trying to spread conspiracies that K-Pop's success is backed by the dirty money of our government, now look at them trying to ride on the coattails of K-Pop's success

4. [+30, -2] You'd have to be insane to not want this season to flop

5. [+18, -2] Why would Lee Seung Gi accept an MC position for this show ㅜㅜ

6. [+12, -0] The Japanese are going to be so cocky if this season does well.. they're going to start claiming that Japan is taking over the Korean entertainment industry

7. [+11, -0] Mnet's PD is infamous for living off of starting controversies... he's probably happy about this right now

8. [+9, -1] These kids are better off in some AV, did we really not have any better kids to cast? Why not just cast globally? Why cast from Japan and cause this mess?

1. [+2,710, -50] Mnet's asking us to vote for these kids? Are they insane?

2. [+1,315, -195] I'm pretty disappointed in Lee Seung Gi for wanting to MC for this too;;

3. [+358, -13] Hope this third season fails

4. [+113, -1] This will probably be the beginning of Japan trying to ruin Hallyu. Japan has nothing to lose with a collab like this doing well, CJ's a fool... why would you put in Japanese kids and divide the viewers like this ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+105, -0] CJ is taking has-beens AKB to use the Korean trainees so that the Japanese have something to brag about. Mnet isn't going to quit it with this crap until they lose out big in the end one day.

6. [+78, -1] Japanese idols are only popular in Japan, they're already known Asia-wide for being talentless and childish. Why would CJ take those kids for this show? What do they have to offer? Especially at a time when even Japanese trainees are coming to Korea to debut?

1. [+213, -21] Right-wing~~~ I refuse to watch

2. [+126, -11] They had a concert wearing the rising sun flag the day Ahn Joong Geun passed away. Case closed.

3. [+62, -8] The difference in skills between Koreans and Japanese right now is like comparing a college student to a choding. I really don't get why they brought in the Japanese for this season.

4. [+50, -3] She posted about her own labelmate on SNS calling her a fattie, lied about another member going out at night to meet men (which wasn't true), and demanded a senior singer to move out of her way because they were in her way. She's got an attitude.

5. [+10, -0] The Japanese men have different taste than us when it comes to idols~~ they prefer loli girls with no skills or talents and they play these idols like 'princess maker' and train them how they like them. Koreans, on the other hand, prefer idols to be perfect at debut, whether it's visually or skills. I don't get why we're mixing these two different styles??

6. [+10, -0] Such a drop in quality by adding these Japanese kids

7. [+8, -1] AKB48's producer Akimoto Yasushi is a famous right-winger, CJ is insane for glamorizing him and promoting him
