On the morning of October 6, viewers who loved Mnet’s survival show “Girls Planet 999” were all surprised with a somewhat abrupt move by the station. Through a video labeled “URGENT NEWS”
Mnet has revealed the identities of 3 contestants who are currently in danger of being eliminated, including J-GROUP’s Nagai Nanami, K-GROUP’s Kim Bora, and J-GROUP’s Kishida Ririka. Although Mnet does not announce their exact rankings, it is possible that the “risk of elimination” here will fall into two situations: being in the last positions in the next area (15th, 16th place) , 17) or fall in first place in the elimination area (18th, 19th, 20th).
What has just been announced by Mnet makes people who love Manami, Bora and Ririka worry, and also start calling for more votes for their favorite contestant. However, many viewers questioned what the real purpose of Mnet was when it suddenly revealed that 3 trainees were in danger of being eliminated just 3 days after voting closed.
On online forums in Korea, netizens are now questioning whether this is Mnet’s effort to try and save Kim Bora. After a series of talented vocalists were soon eliminated in the previous rounds, Kim Bora is currently considered the only main vocal candidate remaining with the show.
“Manami ah “
“Why aren’t there any Chinese contestants… Please get rid of the C-GROUPs”
“So Mnet is sending out a signal asking for a vote for Kim Bora ㅋㅋㅋㅋ”
“Mnet’s trying to save the main vocal ㅋㄱㄱㅋ But if Kim Bora doesn’t have enough votes to move on, there’s still a chance of getting a Planet Pass”
“Manami and Ririka are both cute and talented If you have the UNIVERSE app, please vote for them”
“This is exactly signaling to save the main vocal ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ If Kim Bora gets eliminated, who will be the main vocal for the debut group”
“The purpose of posting this is because Mnet wants to announce ‘These people can be eliminated, please vote for them’ right? Are these the people Mnet wants to save?”
“Looks like they posted this result just because of Kim Bora. But to be honest, I’d rather Bora get eliminated and return to Cherry Bullet than debut with ‘Girls Planet'”
“Kim Bora is the last hope for the main vocal position of the debut group, maybe that’s why Mnet has to improve her rankings at all costs. If it wasn’t for Bora, there’s no way Mnet would suddenly announce it. The father of the top contestants is in danger of being eliminated at a time like this ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ”
