1. [+3,857, -338] The sudden Japanese startled me ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ let's not forget that they're a right-wing Japanese group
2. [+2,732, -159] Don't forget that they're a right-wing Japanese group. They have no problem playing games with their fans where they're expected to match the breast size to the members. They're a barbaric group all around. No idea why Koreans are being asked to pick from a lot like them. Let's let the show fail like 'Idol School'.
3. [+1,178, -93] This is the one season I really want to fail but I'm sure everyone will swear through watching it
4. [+379, -57] Everyone, please boycott it ㅠㅠ They're a right-wing group that performs with the rising sun flag and they're only interested in advancing to Korea because the Twice members are doing well. If this ends up doing well, Japan might take over Korea's music industry...
5. [+234, -13] Never did I think I'd hear Japanese on a Korean TV show, goddamn ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
Article: Miyawaki Sakura, "Producer 48 Center, it's me"
1. [+870, -84] I have no interest in them. They're only trying to ride the wave because K-Pop's doing well!!! Pfft! Go back to your own country
2. [+848, -79] The center has a horseface and looks old for her age... is she really in her twenties????
3. [+38, -10] Our Korean idols are way prettier... they're right-wing, guys, please stop watching the show!!!
4. [+36, -5] Our country has so many talented kids, can someone explain why we're bringing in kids who don't even speak our language and doing this?
5. [+34, -3] They're obviously trying to get a free ride on the K-Pop wave
6. [+29, -3] Put some more articles out about the Korean center After School's Gaeun... we don't care about these Japanese
7. [+28, -2] Koreans have the best idols~~~~ the Japanese kids look so tacky~~
8. [+19, -8] Her eyes are way too big for the rest of her features, her nose is thick, her mouth is sticking out, she has a square shaped face... damn ugly because there's no balance
9. [+18, -3] She's a plastic surgery monster with known attitude issues. She can't sing or dance and even AKB fans know she was given unfair advantages
10. [+14, -3] They're putting a kid like this center... well that takes away any feelings I had of wanting to watch this
