PRODUCE 101 Episode 10 – Feelings, Frustration and Fear
I personally think it’s kinda funny that everyone seems to blame Mnet or other trainees who got through the last elimination (especially Joo Hak Nyeon), just because one or more of their biases couldn’t get into the Top 20.
My first bias of the second season was Noh Tae Hyun, obviously because of his sick skills. But guess who got eliminated yesterday?
With the show going on and on, I’ve learned to love more trainees of course, and Tae Hyun didn’t become my one and only favorite. However, it still hurts to see him go, especially because his Ardor & Able and Hotshot buddy Ha Sung Woon surprisingly placed third.
Well, but this doesn’t give me or anyone else the right to let out my frustration on other Produce 101 trainees, or even Mnet. I know that Mnet is perfectly capable of creating drama with particular editing and not revealing certain footage. However, it is still not Mnet to blame if your favorite trainee didn’t make it. Actually, no one should be blamed. Produce 101 Season 2 is not like Season 1, when the show focused on a completely different audience. Back then, fans of the program were mostly over 20 years old, and obviously male. But with Season 2 everything turned out so differently.
