this may or may not become a very unpopular opinion but i just needed to take a moment and acknowledge all the boys who are now wanna one. this is merely my personal opinion.
but like every other salty fan out there, i was and still am enraged at mnet for their terrible, unjust editing and i also want to throw old tomatoes and scream endlessly at voters for what happened with sammy and jonghyun
cause they went and done dIRTY with how they overlooked this talent
nevertheless it really pains me to see posts blatantly hating on wanna one, talking about revenge, how mnet is evil for splitting nuest up, etc. because regardless of how the show ended, each and every single one of these trainees went in with the goal of debuting as the top 11. their entry into the show meant making certain sacrifices regarding both their past and the future, and they knew these things. it’s not our place to speak on behalf of their choices.
yes, sammy and jonghyun deserved so much better than this, but if you want to argue it so did the other 7 who also participated in the final aka youngmin dongho seonho minki sewoon hyeongsub hakneyon (AND the 81 trainees who were eliminated but worked just as hard, sacrificed their blood sweat time and tears for this show)
how would the boys who are now part of wanna one feel about debuting after seeing posts and hearing talk about how others should have made it into the group instead of them? posts about nuest being broken up by mnet and minhyun becoming a member of wanna one.. i have to admit, that i’m also a lil angry about this, a lot disappointed, and hella sad, but where’s the encouragement and praise that minhyun deserves and really NEEDS at this time?? for those who want to continue debating, is no one also going to talk about what’s gonna happen with hotshot now with sungwoon promoting in wanna one? (and don’t you dare be upset about his placement in the top 11)
the moral of the story in short is
let us cease this chaos and try our best to stop being salty whether we are happy or disappointed with the results
because in the end
it’s really up to us to support these boys and their dreams no matter what. THAT’S what they all deserve.
