1. [+8,904, -271] SM never fails to deliver with their package deals

2. [+7,975, -415] I bet SM put in a word to kick Takuya out too. Honestly, there's not one show on TV where an SM star isn't on it lately.

3. [+6,682, -280] So sick of this SM everyhwere

4. [+5,253, -157] SM totally has control over jTBC variety now... they've been sticking in an SM star in every one of their shows and testing the waters.

5. [+1,256, -35] As a fan of this show, I seriously don't understand why the original cast was even swapped out and why the new cast has overlapping nationalities. On top of that, a trainee? This doesn't fit the concept of the show at all. How can a trainee debate issues about Japan? And they should be introducing countries we haven't had before but Japan again? Why kick Takuya out to begin with? This show won't last for long anymore

6. [+1,175, -34] If they were going to keep Japan on the show, bring back Takuya!!!!!!!

7. [+1,093, -40] Shows are going to close doors with SM sticking their noises everywhere

8. [+1,040, -44] Look at them sticking in an SM star because Jun Hyun Moo is under their label. I'd rather Takuya back.

1. [+17,529, -667] They said they wouldn't repeat the same countries. I don't get why the original cast was removed in the first place and why Takuya was replaced by some Japanese SM trainee who hasn't even debuted yet. This show is going to be a riot when the G11 members are a fully SM cast. Please change the show to 'SM Summit'

2. [+13,637, -670] Why kick Takuya if they're going to add another Japanese member? Please add more Asian members too ㅠㅠㅠㅠ

3. [+11,107, -232] What is this with Japan? What does this make Takuya then? This is going too far

4. [+9,904, -991] The show needed a change of pace but not this way ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I don't get why Sam wasn't kicked. He's been nothing but a wallflower the entire time.

5. [+2,453, -29] I understand them taking Takuya out because he was never open to discussing sensitive issues about Japan and always held back but then they should pick another Japanese who isn't afraid to speak his mind... instead they throw in an idol trainee? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ What do they expect some 20 year old kid to know to participate in debates?

1. [+527, -15] I don't think this is just purely coincidence

2. [+503, -19] SM needs to make their own version of 'Abnormal Summit'~ what is this, an SM empire?

3. [+424, -12] This show has run its course now. What does this show expect to do with some 20 year old SM Rookies idol? Sit there and show off his personal talents while contributing nothing but a smiling face to debate topics about Japan and history?

4. [+46, -3] It's clear what's going on here

5. [+45, -0] A 20 year old Japanese kid... what would he know about history???
