YeonJung of K-Pop idol group Holics recently won a gold medal for the women’s 60-meter sprint during the ISAC.
However, netizens are criticizing the ISAC management at the moment. The reason why is because YeonJung received very little screen time on TV, despite winning the gold medal.
Netizens pointed out that groups like IZ*ONE had much longer screen time, despite coming out last during the sports competitions. They have been criticizing ISAC for choosing to give longer screen time to popular idols than the lesser known ones without putting any consideration into the competition results.
“Then why don’t they just invite only the popular idols. I’m sure the rookies thought this was a good chance to get their names out their and put in a lot of effort to win. Terrible.”
“Terrible, if you guys are going to run your programs like this, then just forget it.”
“This is why I hate ISAC.”
“ISAC used to be a good way for rookies to get their names out there. Now it’s just crap.”
How do you feel about ISAC’s decision to give more screen to more popular idols than the lesser popular ones, despite the results of the sports competitions?
