Mnet has conducted an unexpected move of removing Jinni from MAMA 2022 collaboration performance video after her leaving NMIXX and JYP. This particular action has triggered fans’ criticism to JYP and their vague reason for why Jinni was leaving NMIXX and the agency. Check out the following details for the full reports.
Jinni Leaving NMIXX & JYP: Mnet Removes Her from MAMA Collaboration Stage Video 2022
It has only been a week since the Kpop industry lost one of its most promising idols after Jinni left NMIXX and JYP Entertainment. While the reason why Jinni leaving NMIXX was never clear enough, a sudden move from Mnet brings more criticisms to JYP Entertainment.
On December 16, a Korean community post brought up an issue after Mnet removed Jinni’s footage in their recent video of the 2022 MAMA collaboration stage. Some footage that initially showed Jinni’s performance was edited in the latest video.
So, what really happened?
Jinni is Not Included in the Recent 2022 MAMA Collaboration & NMIXX Behind-The-Scene Video
A few days ago, Mnet uploaded a new video of MAMA’s TOP 10 MOST-VIEWED STAGES. The video contains all the stage performances of the Kpop idols who participated in the 2022 MAMA, including NMIXX and its former member, Jinni.
However, an unexpected moment occurred when fans realized that Mnet had edited Jinni out of the video, especially during the 2022 MAMA collaboration stage. All the footage that was supposed to show Jinni’s gorgeous visual and stunning performance suddenly disappeared. Mnet either replaced them with footage of the audience or removed them completely.

Not only that, but Mnet has also removed Jinni completely from the recent NMIXX behind-the-scene footage.
JYP Will Not Reveal the Real Reason Why Jinni Leaving NMIXX
Indeed, there is no clear answer to the reason why Jinni leaving NMIXX and JYP Entertainment. The agency only concluded Jinni reason for leaving as a “personal reason” and provided no further statement no matter how desperate fans had demanded explanations.
This vague reason and explanation from JYP Entertainment are, in fact, based on the company’s devoted policy. Previously in an interview, JYP founder Park Jin Young revealed that JYP would never reveal the mistakes of their former members even though they decided to cut them off.
It doesn’t mean that all the idols, including Jinni, left JYP Entertainment because they had made a mistake. But even if they did, the agency would never officially reveal the truth to the public.
“It doesn’t mean everyone leaves the agency because they made mistakes. However, JYP is still inclined to keep all the reasons a secret so the person can still strive outside the agency.
It doesn’t mean that every artist who left our company had done something wrong. Some of them had other issues or other reasons to leave. However, we want them to be successful outside of our company.
So, if they really did do something wrong, we will never say it — that’s our policy.
We genuinely want them to succeed when they leave. But if we publicly reveal what they did when they left, that will hurt them. That’s not what we want.”JYP founder Park Jin Young.
Jinni’s Removal from MAMA 2022 Collaboration Video Triggered Mixed Reactions from Fans
Although we may never know the real reason for Jinni leaving NMIXX, the insufficient explanation from JYP Entertainment and Mnet’s sudden removal has triggered mixed reactions from fans.
Indeed, Mnet may have decided to edit Jinni out of MAMA 2022 collaboration video and behind-the-scene footage per JYP request to respect Jinni’s current status as a former idol and avoid unnecessary copyright issues.
Still, these actions have stirred up more comments and criticisms from fans to JYP Entertainment. Why? Because due to JYP vague reason and lack of explanation of why Jinni leaving NMIXX, malicious rumors started circulating on the internet and social media, harming the reputation of the young former idol.
JYP’s vague reason, topped with Mnet’s sudden action of editing Jinni out, brings more negative assumptions about why Jinni left NMIXX and the agency.
my bad they edited her out of the top 10 moments video which was posted after jinni left nmixx so I assume mnet is respecting the contract termination and not using her as a celebrity to promote their content— jac (@flickerriki) December 16, 2022
i will never understand jype and squ4d if they ever delete all jinni fancam including the music shows and their old content in yt. it wont make sense at all.— chaengtatts 💋🎲🐋 #NMIXX 7-7-7 ~ 엔믹스 최고 (@aihsteee) December 14, 2022

So, what do you think about JYP and Mnet’s actions following Jinni’s departure from NMIXX? Do their actions really bring more harm than good for Jinni’s future?
All in all, while we truly miss Jinni and grieve of her resignation, we all hope that Jinni would be happy and content with anything she decides.
