What's your take on this Wibble?

Seems like a strange situation to end up in, but surely the lad could just walk out if he's hating it that much

Did you read the piece? He's bound by contract and faced a steep fine if he walked out.

Ivan Wang told Chinese entertainment blog yuci-er that Ivanov has refused repeated approaches from several agencies because he doesn’t like to be on screen.

One time, I got him a modelling job in Hong Kong, he sent me a SOS message saying he couldn’t stand it five minutes after arriving on set,” Wang said. “He declined repeated participation requests by the director of Produce Camp 2021. He said yes after getting bored on the island. He thought joining the show could also help change his introverted personality.”

As the show progressed, and fed up with the endless rounds of singing and dancing, Ivanov wanted to withdraw – but did not want to pay the exorbitant penalty fee to break the terms of his contract.

Right but he could just refuse to sing and not answer any questions.

What little I know about the pop scene in Asia (mostly from articles written in the west) is that they have a level of organisation and business mindedness Simon Cowell could only dream of.

I'm calling clever marketing on this one.
