STRAY KIDS’s fans are demanding action from MBC due to its Felix’s fancams taken at the 2022 MBC Gayo Daejejeon.

This year’s MBC Gayo Daejejeon welcomed over 40 K-pop artists and groups to welcome 2022. Yoona, 2PM’s Lee Jun Ho, and Jang Sungkyu hosted the event.

NCT 127, ATEEZ, aespa, STRAY KIDS, and more groups offered special stages to their fans. MBC, on the other hand, has since uploaded the fancam of each group and their members.

However, STRAY KIDS’ fans noticed that Felix has been treated unfairly in his fancams.

On Twitter and YouTube, MBC Entertainment uploaded the videos taken at the event. All members — except Felix — have over six-minute videos.

Felix’s fancam, on the other hand, was shorter than three minutes. They also noticed how the idol’s shot was not edited, while his sub-unit members Lee Know and Hyunjin’s fancams both had a filter.

This caused fans to demand MBC and ask them to take action by uploading Felix’s “proper fancam” for both Case 143 and Circus performances.

“This unfair treatment is really disgusting!Felix worked so hard for the team and the stage that he even damaged his health!But you're treating him unfairly. We need Felix to be treated fairly! #BeFairWithFelix @Stray_Kids @jypnation @MBC_entertain,” another wrote.

MBC is yet to respond to the issue.
