Korean Fans Once Again Criticized [Idol Producer] for Plagiarizing [Produce 101], Mnet Responded

'Idol Producer' has once again garnered attention. 

Fans claim that the 'Idol Producer' has gone over the line with its continuous "plagiarism." The concept of the show is way too similar to the original version, and the show has also used similar details for the broadcast. For example, for the latest performance, one of the team performed Jason De Rulo's 'Get Ugly,' which was also performed by Kang Daniel, Ong Seongwu, Park Jihoon, and more, in 'Produce 101.'

On February 5th, a representative of Mnet told media, "'Idol Producer' is not a show under 'Produce 101' license. We are disappointed that the show uses too-similar concept, theme, editing, set, and broadcast style to 'Produce 101.' We also hope that people don't refer the show as the Chinese version of 'Produce 101.'"


What do you think about this issue?
