There seemed to be drama over 150 teams being recorded over a 20 hour period but complete matches and idol groups being edited out of the final 2 hour special (specifically C-Clown, Dal Shabet and T-ara).

The PD explained that they had to fit all of the footage into a 2.5 hour time limit so they left out matches that weren't fun or had a huge difference in score according to their own judgement. They assured that they did not edit out idols purely for the sake of not being popular/not having big fandoms.

1. [+411, -10] Not really all that disappointed about T-ara being edited out

2. [+383, -8] Newsen, did Kwang Soo ask you to manipulate the public into thinking that T-ara being edited out was controversial?? Look at them trying to create a controversy that never happened ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+277, -10] T-ara's fault

4. [+46, -3] It's because of T-ara that the other idols were edited out with them. If you're going to hate on anyone, hate on T-ara. They're the ones that were in the wrong and got edited out for not apologizing.

5. [+38, -3] Who would want to watch T-ara over the Lunar New Year?? And I saw another article about Soyeon talking crap about wanting to shoot WGM with Psy... Obviously they were edited out because they couldn't air the booing from the audience ㅋ

6. [+35, -5] Obviously edited out for a reason ㅋㅋㅋ So why insist on coming out?

7. [+35, -2] What??? I thought the editing was superb ㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+34, -2] Thanks for editing out T-ara ^^

9. [+32, -2] More than anything, I wanted to praise them for editing out T-ara

10. [+27, -4] They edited out T-ara for the comfort of the viewers... Why is that a problem?

11. [+25, -2] Kwang Soo, there is no controversy. No one even cared that T-ara was edited out.

12. [+21, -3] Newsen needs to change their name to Kwangsooen.
