The photo board was taken on MBC’s music program ‘Show! Music Core’, which featured the emcees WANNA ONE Ong Seung Woo, NCT Mark and gugudan Mina, who’s face is cut off. The photo board is intended for fans to take a photo with WANNA ONE Ong Seung Woo and NCT Mark.
Netizens have recently commented on the disrespectful action of the booth.
아니씨발 이게 뭐야 존나 너무하네 장난하냐 여돌은 엠씨도 아냐? 여자 자리에 자기 대입하고 싶어하는 팬 있다고 얼굴을 도려내면 어떡함? 미나도 같은 엠씨거든요? 남돌도 얼굴 도려내서 엠씨 포토존 만든 것도 아니고 너무 투명한 거 아니냐? 개빡쳐 강미나 얼굴보러 간 사람도 있는데 pic.twitter.com/7kDtbyVaIa— 파슾타 (@_paspta)
“WTF. What is this? Yall playing with me? Aren’t female idols MCs too? Only because you would think that more fans would like to be in her spot, do you have the right to cut off her face? Mina is also the MC! You didn’t even make a separate stand with the male idols’ faces cut off to make it even! Isn’t this too transparent? So annoyed, there are people who went to go see Mina’s face too.”
Other netizens also have commented on the booth’s action on Twitter.
- “Is this how people treat girl group fans? Are you all just scared of boy group fans?” “How would Mina feel about this? Even I am this angry.” “It might have been a tad bit better had they cut off her entire position – not just her face…”
- “I am so sorry Mina, on behalf of all this.”
International fans have also vented their frustration towards the booth.

do i really need to point out why this isn’t cool? just bc mina and gugudan aren’t as popular as wanna one or nct doesn’t mean that it’s okay to cut out her face so a bunch of white girls can pretend to stand next to “oppa” https://t.co/QZKYoj4Xif— 잠꾸러기 (@sweaterpaws_twt)
lol i saw some twt saying that making a big deal out of it when gugudan’s mina’s face was cut out for pictures was childish because it’s normal but if it’s an idol from a boy group, y’all be fighting MBC to death— llya || d-19 || jintro: epiphany (@hoseokeu_)
