In the fifth preview of the reality program, Monika properly criticized the Mega Crew mission and crews who invited other K-pop idols.
In particular, the next episode of "Street Woman Fighter" will showcase Mega Crew Mission, wherein other dancers outside the official participants can join the crew.
HOOK team then said, "One team will definitely call for celebrities," expressing consciousness of WANT crew, to which Lee Chaeyeon from IZ*ONE belongs.
The preview then gave a glimpse that WANT will indeed invite idols, saying, "Chaeyeon, this is a chance for you to mobilize all your connections."
In the Sept. 17 preview, it was unveiled that LOONA Yves, Weki Meki Yoo Jung, and rapper Lee Young Ji were all invited by former IZ*ONE Chaeyeon, drawing more attention.
As a result, Monika, a well-known choreographer, and dancer expressed her anger and stated, "I hope all non-dancers will be eliminated. I don't even want to compete with a crew who doesn't deserve to battle against."
YGX and Holy Bang also agreed, saying, "We don't need to have a celebrity. Let's just do ours."

The Reason Why Other Dancers Are Upset of WANT Crew Inviting Other Idols
In particular, several professional dancers in the show spoke about the unfairness of having popularity vs. skills.
Honey J from the crew Holy Bang pointed out, "Want will do their job again (will rank No. 1). It's a little difficult for us to keep up with the ranking as aside skills, it was determined by popularity voting."
Rozalin added, "Isn't there a popular vote? Because we needed the strength of celebrities."
In response, internet users also expressed mixed reactions about crews inviting other idols.
Some said, "Isn't that reaction obvious when singers come out in places for dancers?" "Monika really speaks hard," "Honestly, it is really unfair," and "It's already weird for viewers, but how weird it is for the dance crews?"
Meanwhile, other web users said, "It is only a preview, the part where celebrities were introduced may be intentionally edited."
On the other hand, Mnet's "Street Woman Fighter," which has raised tension among viewers by releasing the trailer, airs every Tuesday at 10:20 p.m. KST.
