Mnet has addressed the controversy regarding “Street Woman Fighter” intro video.
Recently, fans noticed that Mnet’s “Street Woman Fighter” introduction song at the premiere episode used a remixed sample of the adhan. Adhan is the Islamic call to prayer recited at specific times of the day.
Fans have begun trending #MnetApologize and asked the broadcasting station to address the matter, apologize and remove the problematic part.
On September 8, Mnet issued a public apology to one of their official Instagram accounts called ‘Mnet dance’, which stated that the music will be changed.
Read the statement,
On behalf of the Mnet Street Woman Fighter production team, we offer a sincere apology regarding the soundtrack used in the opening of the first episode of Street Woman Fighter.
The song is an electronic soundtrack that is officially registered on the official streaming site.
The production team thought that the electronic sound of the song was suitable as the background music of the program.
We certainly did not hold any other intentions.
We sincerely apologize for the unintended inconvenience caused by the possibility of recalling a specific rhyme.
Respecting your criticism, the video will be re-uploaded after replacing the background music.
Mnet will continue to listen to the opinions of the viewers around the world. We appreciate your interest in Mnet Street Woman Fighter.”
Mnet’s “Street Woman Fighter” airs every Tuesday at 10:20 PM KST.
