“Music Bank” MC Lee Chae Min Gets Flamed For “Rudely” Cutting Off NCT’s Renjun

Music Bank MC Lee Chae Min recently came under fire after cutting off the thank-you speech of NCT’s Renjun. NCT Dream performed “Smoothie” on April 5, 2024. They won first place thanks to the support of fans. Renjun was about to deliver a Chinese speech after the other members had spoken. He was cut off by the MC just as he started.

Without everyone’s support.. (CUT )

It seemed like he had to cut Renjun off due to the lack of time. Lee Chae Min quickly tried to wrap up the show by saying “should we say goodbye then,” shooting Renjun a quick smile to address him. Renjun also reacted to the moment, looking slightly taken aback as he leaned on Mark for comfort.

Music shows run on a tight schedule without room for extra speeches. Despite this, many fans felt that Lee Chae Min could have addressed Renjun with a brief apology before moving on.

“there’s time limit” yea but as a professional mc you don’t just cut ppl off like this just bc of the time lmao and i’ve seen groups with longer time for their speech plus the mc could’ve asked whether they’ve finished https://t.co/Byws3IOp5i pic.twitter.com/loqfz1DRPM

On the other hand, others are harsher in their criticism of Lee Chae Min.

cutting a senior idol, who’s been in industry for 8 YEARS, off in the middle of the sentence and brushing it off with a smile, the disrespect is insane https://t.co/7Z6bD54vcx
