NCTs Mark Talks About His High School Rapper Experience And Appearing On Show Me The Money

The interviewer asked Mark about his appearance on Mnets High School Rapper, and his thoughts behind the decision to participate in the show. Mark answered that because it was a show just for high schoolers, he asked himself, If I dont go on it now, when will I ever be able to do it?, and said he still uses the things he learned while competing on the show.

Netizens think this Chinese show is plagiarizing 'Show Me the Money'

iQiyi's upcoming variety program 'The Rap of China' is getting a lot of rap from netizens for possibly plagiarizing Mnet's 'Show Me the Money.'

One netizen criticized the show via an online community board for its similarities in terms of how the overall show is run not to mention the brand identity.

Let's take a closer look, shall we? First at the obvious logo.  The words 'The Rap of China' is stylized in a similar matter with a hint of gold in the words and background.  Then how about Korea's 'Show Me the Money?' It is the same. One can see that the background is decorated in gold.
