Police start investigating possible voting manipulation on Produce X 101 and more news!



What happened so far: posted here
- After Mnet first denied voting manipulation (suspicions rose up because of identical gaps between trainees' votes), fans started to gather and wanted to take legal action against the show.
- Mnet then admitted that there was an error in calculating the votes but ensured that it did not affect the final ranking.

Now:
- With the continued backlash, Mnet then released a new statement, saying that they did an internal investigation but couldn't verify the facts, so they would request for a 3rd party to investigate.

If I was one of those eliminated trainees, I would grab this opportunity, backlash be damned. A great paycheck for 5 years and that much exposure? Also, i think fans would get over it quickly bc X1 haven't started promotions yet and they all know them from the show. What do you think of the recent developments?

The other show sounds kind of like Shark Tank? But with crowdfunding instead of the millionaires.
