We finally have some names on the Produce rigged controversy..
One insider revealed that another member of NU’EST was supposed to be part of Wanna One’s debut lineup, but even Pledis Entertainment was in on the rigging.
“Didn’t four members of NU’EST appear on Season 2?
Another member also made it into the Top 11 but was removed in consideration of NU’EST’s promotions.
Rather than just Ahn Joon Young PD making the decision, I know that their agency discussed it with CJENM.” – Insider A
“CJ has decided that X1’s promotions from now on are not possible, and has given the agencies their suggestions on how to proceed.
The original center of X1 was supposed to be “C” (Kim Woo Seok) and member “D” (Lee Jin Hyuk) from the same group was also in the Top 11 after voting, but was forced out of the lineup.
There was no case where Mnet would let a trainee who already debuted take the Number 1 center spot.” – Insider B
(The original article mentioned Kim Woo Seok and Lee Jin Hyuk before changing to “C” and “D”.)

1. Is it true that insiders A and B know everything?ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Can we believe this or not?
2. It was weird to see Kim Jong Hyun eliminated
3. So the center of the X1 should be Kim Woo Seok, not Kim Yo Han, daebakㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
4. If this is true, why did they choose Hwang Minhyun instead of that member? I’m curiousㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
5. I honestly think they discussed it with their agency. NU’EST couldn’t perform their activities as a unit with 3 members, so “that member” was removed to promote with NU’EST instead of Wanna One.
6. If you look at this article, Kim Woo Seok and Lee Jin Hyuk are totally the victims, and NU’EST company are the ones at fault here. But is it even ethical to write articles without anything official yet?
7. If the article is true, CJ has consulted the agencies of the trainees. This makes me wonder if the trainees know that or not..
8. Really??? Lee Jin Hyuk was my pick, I feel bad for him.
9. Instead of editing the content, only the real name was edited instead, the reporter seems a bit confident ..?
10. F*ck, Kim Jong Hyun and Lee Jin Hyuk were my one picks
