Prime Kingz, one of the leading international dance crews, is eliminated on the show, leading viewers to send hate to the judges

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: “Street Man Fighter” didn’t run as smoothly as its first edition, where “Street Woman Fighter” was an instant hit. The dance crew survival show sequel has been in the spotlight for several problematic incidents, from the producer belittling the female contestants to the male dancers allegedly plagiarizing or making fun of NewJeans. And now BoA is under fire again for its biased judgment.

Ever since Street Woman Fighter, fans have been unhappy that idols are being used as judges instead of professional dancers. This was evident when BoA and NCT’s Taeyong judged “Street Woman Fighter” on their preferences, even claiming they didn’t know much about the different dance genres the dancers specialized in. Ditto for Street Man Fighter, where BoA returned as a judge along with 2PM’s Wooyoung and Super Junior’s Eunhyuk. While BoA is a K-pop icon who was partially responsible for the Hallyu wave and is admired even by professional dancers, her biased judgment in the latest installment led many to send her hatred.


Judging BoA makes fans unhappy

A Street Man Fighter viewer made a post on Korean gossip chat forum Pann, saying that BoA’s biased judgment during the leaders’ fight resulted in Prime Kingz being unfairly eliminated. In the first fight, Prime Kingz had won TRIX, but BoA asked for a rematch. On top of that, BoA’s stance had angered viewers.

During “Street Woman Fighter,” she constantly joked that she would get scared if the dancers fought. As the male dancers battled, their ferocious krump moves told BoA that TRIX was scary and she thought he was going to hit her or the contestant, which put fans off. Fans also wondered if the three Idol judges simply asked for a rematch because they wanted to see more of the battle, even though Round 1 had a clear winner.

An enraged Knetz left comments such as, “They put up a fight and to see her get ‘so scary~’ is freaking ridiculous.” Another added, “At this rate, contestants also know the judges are just assholes so they’re just keeping it a secret… TRIX looked seriously so unhappy with the injustice.” A Knetz wrote, “I was really wondering what she was talking about when she says she’s scaredㅋㅋㅋ They’re having a dance fight and they is afraid …? If she’s scared, please just stay home.”

One fan joked, “Bring Prime Kingz back and eliminate the Judges.” One user shared, “She’s been ignorant since swf… She’s a frog in the well, always judging by something absurd like aura and power and facial expression as if it.” wouldn’t be acting competition.” Another fan commented, “If all she can say about krumping is that it’s scary that she’s not qualified to judge.” One fan commented, “She was in the too SWF not objective so I’m not surprised. Being a judge on an idol show seems to suit her better.” Another tweeted, “Tbra im so with boa judgement…. She was obviously biased…”
