The new series recently started, but a new and unexpected rule has netizens criticizing the serious for being unnecessarily “cruel” and “harsh.”

In the clip, MC Kang Daniel announced that each of the crew masters will then create a brand new group with seven members from the entire pool of contestants after a dance battle.

When a YouTuber reviewed the episode, they explained more clearly that the show had changed from something following teams to an individual battle while the actual teams would basically be “disbanded.”

When the clip was shared, netizens couldn’t get over how “cruel” Mnet was being. Although the rumors had allegedly been circulating over Korean forums, the reality seemed even harsher, and netizens couldn’t hide their anger, especially as the contestants are so young.

This explains the lack of “umph” then.

The MASTERS of each crew would have to choose 7 MEMBERS out of all the crews and solos that chose them.

They’re basically creating a NEW CREW out of it.

This rumor had been going around in k-twt last week. This is so cruel.

In the past, Mnet has been known for its strict and harsh rules in reality shows. Yet, considering how young the contestants are, with many not really being in the entertainment industry, it feels even harsher.

 The contestants are students.
