Toward the end, when the decision of elimination came closer, some of the children began saying things such as, “What do I do… I don’t think my name will be called” or “But I did the best I could”.

Netizens got angry and frustrated and commented, ” “It’s horrible to watch little children crying like their lives are over”, “It’s hard to watch children trying to be on the same playing field as adults”, and “I can’t help but feel like I’m participating in making those children compete and stress and shed tears”.
