It’s been belatedly reported that the rules of Mnet‘s dancing competition, Street Woman Fighter have been slightly altered to benefit the winners of the program.
Currently, the competition show has been slaying the game, as it continues to rank high in viewership ratings. The program saw viral popularity as soon as the first episode aired and the contestants have been experiencing stardom like never before.
Despite receiving such positive limelight, however, netizens were stunned when they found out that the winners of the show would be awarded with no prize.
As Street Woman Fighter continues to make headline after headline, netizens began to complain about the show’s lack of prize — and Mnet has responded to the backlash.
In a recent report, it was revealed that Mnet would be awarding the final winning dance crew a monetary prize of ₩50.0 million KRW (about $42,600 USD) along with the trophy. The competition’s recent change was reflected on the newest poster of the program on Mnet’s official Street Woman Fighter page.
And while this prize money is not much in comparison to Show Me The Money 10 winner’s cash prize of ₩300 million KRW (about $256,000 USD), netizens were still thrilled to hear that the hardworking and talented female dancers would be receiving something.
Street Woman Fighter airs every Tuesday on Mnet so make sure to keep up with the fierce competition.
