It has been reported that a group Wanna One's Kang Daniel's may be suing CJ EM and YMC Entertainment.
The conflict between the fans and the two agencies arose when Kang Daniel did not receive the center position despite being promised the spot after ranking 1st on 'Produce 101' season 2. Allegedly, two fan cafes - Kang Daniel's Naver fan cafe and Daum fan cafe - have decided to band together to address the issue, claiming, "Voting was carried out via a paid voting system, and it was promised that the member who received first place would be given the center position. However, despite the paid voting system, Kang Daniel did not stand in the center spot. CJ EM stated that now that the program has ended, they do not have any responsibility on the matter." They continued, "We fans addressed the issues to the two companies and wanted feedback but did not receive any."
