The V Live Awards 2019 had quite the awkward moment as the event had barely any people showing up.
The awards took place at the Gocheok Sky Dome, and it was quite evident that no one was interested in attending the event.
The reason why may have something to do with X1 being pulled out from the event. At the moment, it has been confirmed that all ‘Produce 101’ groups were made through vote manipulation, which has been bringing upon negative publicity not just to Mnet but indirectly to the idol groups as well.
Because X1’s appearance from the awards event was canceled, many believe that it affected the number of audience during the awards event.
Some fans have said there’s not point in having tickets to a concert where X1 won’t be performing.

mnet decided to cancel x1’s appearance in vlive awards “after careful consideration of recent public opinion.” i hope they know how stupid they sounded right now #LikealwaysX1

The event has started already but there are still many empty seats… I feel bad for VLIVE, they worked hard with the hopes it’ll be successful but look at this. Mnet’s fault!!! What a stupid move. What an embarrassment 🤢 pic.twitter.com/LIJlYlrdEA
