Mnet Issues Apology And Promises To Release Plans For Future Of X1 And IZ*ONE Soon

Mnet has issued an apology regarding the vote manipulation controversy surrounding the “Produce 101” series, and has promised to issue a statement on the future of current project groups IZ*ONE and X1.

On December 3, Mnet released the following statement:

Hello, this is Mnet.

We wish to sincerely apologize to viewers, fans, trainees, and agencies for causing concern with our program.

We are currently cooperating in the investigation with a sincere attitude, and we will pursue strict internal measures according to the results.

Following discussions with related parties, we will release plans for compensation, reformative measures, and future plans for IZ*ONE and X1 as soon as possible.

However, we sincerely ask for your consideration so that the artists and trainees, who have done nothing wrong, do not suffer additional damages.

The police is currently investigating suspicions that all four seasons of “Produce 101” were manipulated, after PD Ahn Joon Young admitted to engaging in manipulating rankings in “Produce 48” and “Produce X 101.”

Do these "future plans" include more postponed albums, cancelled CFs and cancelled year end awards performances?

X1 and Itzy were the most successful rookie groups on digital charts this year but guess who didn't get their award cause they weren't allowed to attend MMA?
