We would like to express our deepest apologies for causing controversy with Mnet’s “Produce X 101.” At the end of July, we [Mnet] determined that there were limits to our own investigation into the matter, and we requested a police investigation. We’ve confirmed that police have requested arrest warrants for some of the people involved in the production of “Produce X 101,” and we are closely watching the situation. Mnet will continue to actively cooperate with investigations, and if there is anything that Mnet needs to take responsibility for after investigations are over, we will do so. Once more, we would like to sincerely apologize to all the fans and viewers who supported “Produce X 101,” the contestants of “Produce X 101,” as well as the agencies and all affiliated personnel. However, we would like to ask that everyone refrain from speculative reports about artists that were affected through this incident.
It’s not unexpected since the police probably have financial records and what not, but it is … well, something that those kind of crimes are the only kind that police seem to have any interest in pursuing.
