What Is Mnet’s Evil Editing?
Mnet is known for the dramatic editing in the episodes. In the very first episode of Queendom 2, fans saw Viviz’z SinB becoming the victim of the editing. As the teams went on to take their seats, SinB called Cosmic Girl’s Yeorum. Asking Yeorum to tell her members that they are seniors, she asked her to introduce them. While the conversation is harmless, with Mnet’s evil editing, it looked like SinB was being rude. And was trying to intimidate their junior artists. To give the scene a cherry on the top, the editors went on to add shocked reactions from the other contestants.
Whatever the channel tried to do for SinB it didn’t work. Putting on her act, the idol herself went on to create drama with someone whom she’s close with. Well aware, fans went on to praise Sinb for her acting on the show. Being a part of the industry for over seven years, SinB has called out Mnet for the evil editing they do several times. Before the show even started, fans were already on the internet worrying about SinB. And how the idol’s neutral expressions were gonna get extra touched by the evil editing. They even asked SinB to be aware of her expressions so she doesn’t fall prey to the tactics.
