Viewers Criticize Mnet For Poor Editing Of ‘Street Woman Fighter’, Allegedly Singling Out Chaeyeon
Mnet's "Street Woman Fighter" is currently one of the most watched shows in South Korea. The premise of the show is to have top women dancers all vying to win the overall victory in the survival show.
Although there are plenty of incredibly talented female dancers competing on the survival show, Former IZ*ONE member, Lee Chaeyeon, has been one of the most talked about participants in the program.
Although Lee Chaeyeon is known in the K-pop industry for her dancing skills, the former IZ*ONE member is slowly being known for something negative in the show. That being her dancing skills not being on par with professional dancers.
In the most recent episode of "Street Woman Fighter," Lee Chaeyeon went on to strut what she had in choreography in front of all of the other dancers. But it seems as though the other dancers were unimpressed as they noted Chaeyeon's 'idol-like' moves, among other harsh criticisms.
Although this is a competition, some viewers think the other competitors are being too harsh on Lee Chaeyeon while others simply think being an idol dancer is leagues away from being a professional dancer.
Thus, as the other participants of the show constantly note Lee Chaeyeon to be the "weakest link," viewers and netizens have started to notice that Mnet has been shifting their attention to Lee Chaeyeon and her doubtful nature, purposely editing the episodes.
A recent online community had a discourse, showing how netizens are disappointment in the sudden shift in Mnaet's "Street Woman Fighter," arguing that Mnet is pushing Lee Chaeyeon's narrative of being "weak" instead of focusing on the talent of the dancers.
Viewers are divided as others say that Mnet is doing what they did in their previous series of Produce 101.
While others shared that due to Mnet pushing their narrative via editing on Lee Chaeyeon, is directly affecting her negatively.
