Ahn Joon Young PD under suspicion of accepting drinking establishment services worth 100 million KRW from entertainment labels
On November 9, media outlet 'Newsis' revealed additional details regarding the police's ongoing investigation into Ahn Joon Young PD's vote rigging and broadcast manipulation accusations.
Ahn Joon Young PD was arrested by police back on November 5 alongside 3 other individuals for charges of fraud, broadcast manipulations, accepting bribery, etc. According to 'Newsis', Ahn Joon Young PD began accepting bribes from entertainment agencies in regard to his 'Produce' series since January of 2018 - approximately 5 months before the premiere of 'Produce 48', and approximately 6 months after the end of 'Produce 101' season 2.
Police believe that the PD continuously received bribery in the form of drinking establishment services worth over several 100 million KRW (over ~ 86,000 USD), from January of 2018 until July of this year, when 'Produce X 101' came to an end. The PD's drinking establishment services allegedly also included the presences of hostesses.
A Blue House petition has been revealed to be in place asking to ban X1 and IZ*ONE after the show became wrapped up in a voting fraud controversy.
The petition was submitted on November 7 and is titled 'ban IZ*ONE and X1 from all terrestrial broadcasts'.
Part of the petition states: "The debuted X1 is currently blocked from performing, but IZ*ONE is acting as if nothing happened and are preparing for a comeback. This entire situation is the program's way of mocking us. Ban these groups from appearing on terrestrial broadcasts."
It seems like the anger is growing as recent reports revealed that the top 20 contestants of both 'Produce 48' and 'Produce X 101' were chosen even before the public voting started.
