Title: [TV] Produce 101 Season 1
Post by: Stryfe on February 18, 2016, 06:12:38 PM

website ( | facebook ( | youtube ( | wikipedia (

Produce 101 is a k-pop reality survival show where 101 trainees from numerous agencies compete to form an eleven member idol girl group. The members and rankings are exclusively determined by audience votes, audience meaning the people of South Korea and the whole damn world. After 11 episodes and several eliminations, 11 girls will remain and form a group that will promote under YMC Entertainment starting in April 2016 until the end of the year.

Many of you may remember this destructive earworm:

While the song may be a crime against humanity, the girls and the blood, sweat and tears they shed (helped by Mnet's nefarious black magic editing) win you over and your soul is utterly and completely consumed.

Things begin with trainee evaluations, where trainees from various agencies perform to (an excellent) panel of female mentors (Ex-After School Kahi, Brown Eyed Girls' Jea, Unpretty Rapstar 1 winner Cheetah etc) who then grade and group them by skill level. Things get really going in ep 3 when the girls perform girl group debut songs in groups of 4-5, fighting for audience bonus votes that could save a lot of them from the first mass elimination set to happen in episode 5.



Did I mention anyone can vote in this thing?

You can register and vote for your 11-girl lineup every day. You can also vote in the item support event, where votes eventually "unlock" gifts (such as lip balm and gift baskets) for the girls.

Main Voting Site ( (twitter or facebook registration required, 11 girls per day)
Item Support Voting ( (no registration required, one girl per day)

Here's a brief tutorial ( on how to vote, provided by Team Produce 101.

NOTE: The voting is currently closed and will continue after tomorrow's eliminations.

This show is my latest crack cocaine... here's my current team:

( ( ( ( (

01. Kim Sejeong, 19 (Jellyfish) Kind and talented to boot, she has won pretty much everyone over from day one with her skills, energy and positive attitude.
02. Jeon Somi, 14 (JYP) Somi is a half-Canadian wunderkind (of Sixteen fame) and by far the most famous trainee on the show.
03. Choi Yoojung, 16 (Fantagio) Pick Me frontgirl, a bundle of energy and cuteness with dancing skills. A natural performer.
04. Kim Doyeon, 16 (Fantagio) Stunning and tall, quite the capable dancer but widely recognized for her looks.
05. Kim Dani, 16 (MBK) Dani's coming has been foretold in the book of T-ara, chapter N4 since the dawn of Day by Day. Could it finally be the time of glorious debut?

( ( ( ( (

06. Yu Yeunjung, 16 (Starship) Lurked behind the scenes until episode 3, where she pretty much blew everyone away doing the lead vocals of ITNW perfectly.
07. Jeon Soyeon, 17 (Cube) Cute chipmunk rapper and possible Top Madam #2.
08. Kang Mina, 16 (Jellyfish) Adorable and ever so slightly chubby. She kind of reminds me of Aibon somehow.
09. Yu Sua, 18 (MJ) Dancer extraordinaire, Sua is the only trainee on my team that might be in danger of being eliminated tomorrow.
10. Park Soyeon, 16 (Loen) Great dancer and a fine rapper. Cool chick.


11. Kim Sohye, 16 (Redline) Sohye, an actress trainee, started as a joke but her hard-working-if-not-too-talented-underdog story is really striking a chord with people. And her cute student-teacher relationship with Sejeong is the best thing on the show and it must continue or else. >:|

(  (

 :heart: :heart:

But I have to admit my team keeps changing constantly (as it should, really, because it's hard to get airtime on a show with 101 competitors), here's some people lurking just outside the current line-up:

Cathy, 20 (MBK) Cathy got a lot of blame for being a sly fox in general during the girl group performances, but she's beautiful and quite capable.
Lim Nayong, 20 (Pledis) Dubbed the girl with no emotions, my favorite of the Pledis trainees. Very attractive ice princess.
Chaeyeon, 20 (MBK) The perfect plastic creation ( has mostly impressed with her good looks. Good job mister surgeon.
Park Minji, 16 (Magic Fresh) Rocked Kara's Break It performance at lead vocals, another hidden gem.
Kim Chungha, 19 (M&H) Really good dancer, hot.
Kim Nayong, 20 (Jellyfish) The lost Jellyfish girl, attractive and talented.

There's many more really, I keep finding new girls I wanna throw my support at all the time. Post your teams if you've got 'em!

Soz I don't quite have the energy to reply with enthusiasm..

I am watching,

I vote Dani, Sejeong, Yoojung, Yeunjung and Soyeon from Stryfe's list,
and then the Chinese girl who smiles a lot,
I'm considering voting Lim Nayong,
and the rest are kind of random right now, as I'm waiting to see who are eliminated. Because I had voted for some bottom girls before.
and I also like Sohye but I'm not voting for her. I have a feeling she won't need to debut in this group to be around, if for some reason I will miss her, which might not happen because it's just reality tv! lol

I didn't think I'd actually look forward to each episode when I started watching this >_<

As for my favorites, I'd definitely say Im Nayoung because she's the most realistic human-looking robot ever! Plus she's a cutie.
Choi Yujeong, i dunno why but she caught my attention when I first saw that terribad Pick Me performance. I guess that's why she's the center right? Bonus clip of her in high school (
Kang Sira - I liked her voice when she auditioned and she's purty.
Chaeyeon - My bias in DIA so yeah easy choice to root for her here.
Kim Sejeong - Obviously a great talent, but the last two? episodes of her helping out Sohye made me like her more.
Kwon Eunbin, Kim Chungha and Kang Mina are maybe not favorites, but I like them as well.

Eliminations are this week...and a broken camera :o

I didn't think I'd actually look forward to each episode when I started watching this >_<

I thought I'd probably enjoy it as I love all the trainee shitz, but I didn't expect it to be this addictive. We're also not alone, the rising ratings are surprising everyone, including the agencies:

Quote from:
People might think that getting into top 11 is the perfect chance for all trainees. The reason is because those trainees will be able to debut in CJ’s project girl group for 10 months. On the other hand, trainees ranked from 12th place & below will have to return to their own companies and continue their training lessons.

However, at the start, the most-wanted place of all agencies has been place 12th. Trainees might get more famous, but spending 10 months promoting in CJ is somewhat wasteful. After 10 months, related agencies will have to decide whether to extend the life of the project group, and tons of paper work with CJ company will have to be done. It seems like the most perfect scenery is to be at 12th place and to be eliminated. By doing that, the trainee both got fame, so when she goes back to her company, she’s confirmed to be able to make debut.

For now, the situation has changed. The show is attracting more viewers than expected. “The famous trainees in our show has become real stars. If they can survive until the end, we know for sure they will be the best new girl group in year 2016″. “Now when you search for Jellyfish, Fantagio on Naver, Sung Sikyoung and Ha Jung Woo (the companies’ famous singers) name won’t come out, but instead “kim Sejong” and “Choi Yu Jung” would pop out. Their fame is not a joke even for now, so I think rather than being at 12th place, getting into top 11 to be official member of this group should be better”

One agency representative said: “To be honest we had a lot of worries about joining this show. After 10 months, the group will disband and we wonder if that member can easily go back to our company. Yet for now we don’t need to worry about that anymore. No matter how much score our trainees get, everyone is benefited because all agencies have been promoted.”

I actually don't have TOO many feels about the eliminations, since very few of my favorites are in real danger... but I expect it to be highly emotional still. So many newfound friends will be torn apart... these girls are gonna bawl their hearts out.

Top 11 after the first five episodes. Full results (in Korean) here (

Wonderful episode, they called the people who made it out one by one, showed their votes and allowed everyone to comment, too. It got very emotional at times, as expected. There was some backstage stuff and shenanigans, pranks, all in all this show is just improving as it goes on. I mean, idols make getting vaccinations entertaining. And what was with the weight watchers stuff haha... poor Mina.

Sejeong and Somi really ran ahead with 500k+ votes each. Yoojung hopped from #8 to #3 and Sohye made the top 11. Just outside top 11, Yu Yeunjung did a monstrous rise on the charts from #55 to #12.

Everyone on my team made it, Sua had a close call at #57. Park Minji, who was on my watchlist, didn't, probably because her performance was way too late to improve her standing. :/

( (

Shock!!! (at their vote amounts, I think) Also Sejeong was a sweetheart 'til the end and said she's close to Somi so stop making them rivals! xD



Next week's missions include some boyband songs... maybe some The Ark vibes in the air? O0

And a reminder, voting is open again ( until March 5th! And everyone starts from zero again.

I'm not following this closely as in voting and checking things daily but since watching ep 1 (or was it 2?) I'm hooked.

I don't have a team either but
Choi Yoojung is my girl  :heart: she is so cute and kind and considerate, she deserves the world. For that music high school clip alone she deserves #1  XD (thanks for the video link since the youtube one is blocked here...)
The other girl important is Kim Sohye. She's also super cute and kind but also what I think I would be like in that situation so that makes her super adorable.

Some of the other popular girls are also good and a couple of those who are low in the ranking too. But these two are the only I really "care" about still when watching the next ep.

Post by: storyboard on February 20, 2016, 02:12:06 AM
WHEW...Kang Sira made it! Barely! I felt like she was going to get eliminated, she probably will next time :/
I'm surprised Risa made it through. Didn't get quite the amount of editing as Sohye so I didn't think viewers would vote for her since her talents aren't, you know, that great XD.
Top 11 not too much of a surprise other than Sohye. Jellyfish girls, MBK, Somi and Choi Yujeong are always going to be at the top.

EP5 them hidden cameras are always good lol.

OFF-TOPIC: Speaking of The Ark...they were spotted on the streets doing some dance covers a few days ago, but they were wearing those face masks so people weren't too sure it was them. But it was. Here's hoping for a comeback in the near future!

Some pre-debut (well, pre-produce 101) stuff of my favorites:

It hasn't actually been talked about on the show I think, but Kim Sejeong was on K-pop Star season 2, back when she was still 16. She has a few more performances on the channel.

A cute little clip of Yoojung acting. And here's that youtube full version ( of the high school vid. Also found the Yoojung cuts on Google Drive (


My favorite moment has to be when the truck arrives and Yoojung starts dancing to it. :lol:

This has to be my fave ye olde Somi moment (starting at 36:35), or at least fave Somi's dad - moment. So heartwarming. :P

OFF-TOPIC: Speaking of The Ark...they were spotted on the streets doing some dance covers a few days ago, but they were wearing those face masks so people weren't too sure it was them. But it was. Here's hoping for a comeback in the near future!

Yeah, here's hoping, been far too long. Another Produce 101 - The Ark connection:


Yu Yeunjung is friends with Jane. Also, Kim Sohye appears in The Ark's music video ( (1:44) as Halla's classmate. :P

Sohye, damn. The transformation is real. She's in dance section, doing Sunmi's Full Moon.

Yoojung in her Bang Bang garb. From what little footage I've seen, she looks sharp and fierce. Should be good.

Kim Chungha, daaamn. Also in the Bang Bang group, which is, by all accounts, going to destroy.


And a bonus, Cube's Kwon Eunbean channeling her inner pirate. Arr. Also in da Bang x2.

Guess we won't be seeing Eunbin anymore in p101 after ep6 & 7 xD

Well, I guess this sorta clears it up?
Quote from:
[INFO] CUBE stated that Eunbean is not going to promote with CLC until Produce101 ends so she can still debut as a member of PD101's group.

Also saw this regarding her:


So yeah, weird with a beard. She's in, but she can't do anything until P101 is over. Revealing her will guarantee she won't make it to top 11 at least, not that I thought she would in the first place.


Also, Chaeyeon recently went blonde, so people are speculating DIA might be doing a similar thing...

Using Produce 101 for publicity, well, can't hurt I guess.

Ep. 6 is tonight, but Mnet have already released a performance in youtube.

Amusingly enough, this vid is titled Juna vs Yeunjung... although there's six girls performing. :P
Title: Re: [TV] Produce 101
Post by: Stryfe on February 26, 2016, 05:19:09 PM

I love mnet's trolling haha. This was from the teaser, where they "failed" to obscure an image (You can tell from the piece of hangul that #1 is Kang).

So of course people expected Kang Sira to win the vocal #1, but it was NOT from the final standing. Brilliant and evil. :lol:


Sejeong 406, Sira 337, Yeunjung 317.

Sira and Yeunjung were the stars of the power vocal department, but I honestly preferred Sejeong's performance to theirs. That voice is just honey, it's something special.

One thing's for sure, this group is going to have some great vocals at least. And I'll be considering Kang Sira from now on when making my team.  :thumbup

edit: It is done, Sira gets Sohye's spot, who is way too high to begin with.


New overall ranking! Sira is gonna climb sooo hard next week. :)

Ep.7 preview with the dance and rap teams.

( (

Once again, Mnet is trolling us hard, posting a "lazily obscured" ranking, which probably isn't the final ranking after all... :P

I'm thinking some of the girls either weren't told or just didn't understand the rules properly, because trying to outdo someone in a group of 7 is crazy hard. Bang Bang has a whole bunch of popular girls, seems pretty damn difficult to stand out enough to win 100k. Hell, even Sohye could win this... :lol:


Anyway... My body is ready.

Mnet released solo angles for the Vocal, Dance & Rap Battles, Team PD101 compiled:

Now that I've seen all, well, almost all of them since it gets kinda mind-numbing, some faves from the dance-rap stuff:

Yoojung, Chungha and Somi were the standouts of the Bang Bang performance to me. In the end, Yoojung steals the show with her intensity and incredibly-on-point expressions. Such a natural.

I thought the rap performances were a bit of a mess in general. Cathy was a little underwhelming, Jeon Soyeon stood out the most for me.

Park Soyeon was the star and center of Growl, but other girls did good too, Sua especially. Haeyoung was a little, I don't know, routine? Expected more from her.

I'm dead, seriously. Dead. :sweatdrop:


Oh and Sohye did pretty good, too! :P

Post by: storyboard on March 03, 2016, 01:30:54 AM
This is my "I'm dead" video. I could replay this all day (ok maybe not ALL day). She might not be the most amazing dancer or whatever but fuu she looked so hot in this performance.

Stryfe, I agree with you on them rap performances. They were just bad.. I'll probably say Soyeon was the best out of the bunch. She has that little extra swag that the rest didn't really have.

Cathy and Chaeyeon were letdowns. Maybe they weren't lying when they said they signed up for this show because they felt they were lacking.

A couple of subbed extra backstage clips, some great girlbonding. And people worshipping Stone Buddha's sexy figure.

I dug how all of the Say My Name solo angles started with her booty, gotta admit. :yep:


Starting next round, the voting will apparently change to everyone voting for just one girl. Can't say I'm a fan of that, I enjoyed making my ideal team. Guess it'll show who really have the most rabid fans, though. No more voting for all Pledis girls or MBK girls, no more compassion votes, strategizing or trading votes. Well, of course can't get rid of all that but some, I suppose.

Title: Re: [TV] Produce 101
Post by: Stryfe on March 06, 2016, 11:46:25 AM
Ep 7 was amazing, and had the best segment of the whole show so far:

With awesome dancing ( and priceless moments like this ( and this (, it was just gold through and through.

Wait a minute. Let me take you there. Bang Bang was the definitely THE performance.


Such a great rollercoaster of an episode overall. Action, excitement! All the dance perfs were enjoyable, although the raps left something to be desired. Although props to the "You Look Happy" team for their Produce 101 themed, pretty heavy lyrics ( that had everyone moved. So Kim Hyeongeun winning overall wasn't surprising at all.

The dance contest had a somewhat predictable outcome. Mina had me weak in the knees with her transformation and the audience agreed. Her styling, expressions and dancing... it was all perfect. Nayoung was amazing, but I think her styling was maybe a little off and she just couldn't quite match the impact Mina had. (Nayoung apparently choreographed the whole thing, which is pretty damn cool). And as I anticipated, the Bang Bang team was just too good for their own good. While Mina only had to seriously contend with Nayoung for the victory, Bang Bang had 7 girls in the top 22 duking it out.

It was a contest with strange rules and it basically served Mnet's purpose. Outrage, noise and publicity. Just what they're always looking for. It was a contest to find the best dance performer (emphasis on performance), yet it wasn't, because the "brackets" were all fucked up. Just for kicks, some specifics:

Let's start with Bang Bang. While it looks like the votes drop quite fast (191, 189, 101, 70, 41, 25, 19) it actually adds up to quite a lot (636). The performance actually got the most votes (forgetting Say My Name, where all votes weren't revealed) with 636. That speaks probably to how good it was. But there were just too many master chefs in the kitchen. (Chungha's fourth place actually doesn't surprise me. Unless you specifically pay attention to her, Yoojung and Somi steal her thunder in almost all of the group moments.)

There was a similar problem with Growl, and while it wasn't full of heavy hitters, it had some good dancers and a ton of people taking votes (190, 91, 84, 62, 60, 51, 29) so P.Soyeon wasn't able to run away enough with the points. The total votes were also only 567, which is the least of the (known) bunch.

While Full Moon had the least amount of performers, it was three top 10 girls, so the 568 votes divided quite evenly (225, 204 and 139). Now, consider if you replaced Pinky or Chaeyeon with a less popular or skilled person... poor Sohye could now be in the shit-storm of her life.

So with Mina stealing 269 votes, Nayoung ~196 (she was #4 overall, so between Pinky and Yoojung) and rest of their team only 100-150 votes between them (estimates, as the full result wasn't revealed) the end result just seems logical.

If you asked me who the best dance performer was overall, I'd say Yoojung easy. But this was a contest with more complex (and silly) rules.


Next week, concepts! (and eliminations :/) The girls seem to have numbers corresponding to their ranks in the position evaluations.

And apparently, current girl group members will be coaching them: ( Yubin & Yeeun (Wonder Girls), Yuri & Sunny (Girls' Generation), Hyorin (Sistar), Gayoon (4minute) and Chorong & Hayoung (A Pink) are mentioned.


Reaction award of the week goes to Stone Buddha and her beyond excited "omg".

Another preview, another clip of Yoojung being cute as fuck. :love:


Apparently it's going to be one vote after all... I don't even know what to believe anymore, will just have to wait and see.

Anyway, if it's one vote, I'm probably going to keep voting for Sejeong, unless I see something extraordinary from someone. I think the time of trying to "save" someone has come and gone, although...

If it's five votes, it'll probably be Sejeong, Yoojung, Somi, Mina and whoever I like that's the lowest on today's ranking. Will have to see the episode first.

I think Sejeong, Yoojung and Somi are 100% guaranteed to make the final 11, and the further we go on this show, the more obvious the lineup becomes. If I'd have to guess on current trends and the new system:

Sejeong, Yoojung, Somi, Mina, Doyeon, Pinky, Chungha, Sohye... after that it gets a little tougher but probably Yeunjung (no idea how that negative attention really affects her votes), maybe Im Nayoung (on character), Chaeyeon (on visuals).

Park Soyeon might make it as well, slightly worried about Jeon Soyeon since her edits haven't been super favorable. Kim Nayoung might suffer from the one-vote thing, possibly also Pledis girls, although I'm fairly certain Pinky is safe. Stone Buddha has her unique character now, so it would seem she would make it too. I have no idea how MBK fanbase is going to vote now, though. Shin also seems like a possibility.

For some people it really depends on how well they do AND how the show portrays them in the final episodes (there's only 4 left, remember). Sira might be such a person, and if she blows people away again, who knows. But it will get tougher and tougher as people decide on their favorites and Mnet will most certainly give screentime to the trainees that the fans want to see.

This is also why Sohye will almost certainly make it... she's popular as all hell. People want to see what she does and how she does it. Personally I find her very entertaining. People are gonna give her shit, but that's what (some) people do. Haters gonna hate. I'm most certainly not going to mind her being part of a temporary group with ten other girls in it. One hard-working, low-talent goofball is not going to ruin it for everyone else, in fact I think it's just going to enhance the whole experience with variety. These are idols, after all... it's not a sing & dance contest.


That's just how it goes. Eliminations in a couple of hours. Get ready for the tears. :cry:

Ranking after the second elimination. Full results here ( (in Korean).

Not many surprises up top. Cathy, Dani and J.Soyeon dropped out to make room for Yeunjung, Stone Buddha and Doyeon. Top 4 are unstoppable. Interestingly Kang Mina beat Somi with the help of the 100k votes. Sejeong remains a wall.

Park Soyeon was oddly low at #30, Chanmi almost out at #33. Poor Sua didn't make it. DSP's Shiyoon is out as well, Park Haeyeon, Kang Siwon, everyone in Growl team except Park Soyeon.. etc... lost many good ones. :/

But, Kang Sira made it! She was #29, rising a whopping 32 ranks.


Full ranking.

Next week, more concept action.

Uhhhh... :sweatdrop:


Concept mission live stages just went down. Five teams of seven girls performed original songs and 3000 audience members voted on their favorite performance.

Winning team gets 150,000 votes, divided among the team members, so ~21k each. And that's quite a lot, because online votes have only 1/11 of the power they used to have and there's only a week of voting.

Lineups with concept/producer/song title are as follows:


Girl Crush Pop: Producer: Ryan | Song: Fingertips
Sejeong, Chungha, Shin, Cathy, Eunwoo, Yeseul, Im Nayoung
Girlish Pop: Producer: B1A4′s Jinyoung | Song: 갈은곳에서 (In The Same Place)
Sohye, Sohee, Chaekyung, Yeunjung, Hyeri, Doyeon, Sira
Trap Pop: Producer: DR | Song: Yum-Yum
Somi, Yoojung, Dani, Park Soyeon, Siyeon, Chanmi, Chaeyeon
EDM: Producers: DJ KOO & MAXIMITE | Song: 24시간 (24 Hours)
Pinky, Yebin, Mina, Kim Nayoung, Soomin, Hyemin, Insun

Hip Hop: Producer: San E | Song: Don’t Matter

Jeon Soyeon, Haein, Seokyung, Hyeongeun, Juna, Eunbean, Suhyun


I read somewhere that only 15 girls would survive the next elimination but not too sure about that. Seems a little low to me. Not long to go now anyway, get your single votes in.

Going to be interesting to see how the 1-vote system will affect the votes. Top 3 will surely be Sejeong, Yoojung and Somi, but fandom power might shuffle their order quite unpredictably. Somi undoubtedly has the most hardcore fanbase due to her previous exposure and she might very well return to the top spot. But, who knows, it's also still quite unclear how casual watchers have been voting and who has been "riding along" or a "well, I should include her even if she's not my top pick" type of choice.

I'm actually not sure what will happen after this week's voting closes... will there be more voting? Time is kind of running out, though. I expect Mnet to do something crazy, though.

I'll keep voting for Sejeong, since, well... at this point I have no idea what will happen. I've also grown fond of so many girls that any outcome is fine by me, really. :P

Girl Crush Pop: Producer: Ryan | Song: Fingertips (perf ( / audio (
Sejeong, Chungha, Shin, Cathy, Eunwoo, Yeseul, Im Nayoung

Hip Hop: Producer: San E | Song: Don’t Matter (perf ( / audio (
Jeon Soyeon, Haein, Seokyung, Hyeongeun, Juna, Eunbean, Suhyun


The performances were all enjoyable, although I wasn't really blown away by any of them, and didn't much care for the songs, either. They all seemed like album filler. However, after listening to the studio versions, I changed my mind a little and actually do enjoy some of them quite a bit, especially Yum-Yum, Fingertips and Don't Matter. Hell, I put all five on the radio. :P

Next week, the eliminations will give us a top 22, which sounds more reasonable than 15. Leaves a lot more excitement for the April 1st finale.

This was just too adorable haha... fangirls... especially Yoojung. Here's a gifset with some translations ( :P

Whoo! What a rollercoaster. Guess we found out who has the craziest fans alright. :lol:

Makes a ton of sense that Somi would grab back the #1 spot with all the JYP/Twice fans behind her and the agency trains breaking. Most people making teams of eleven would put Sejeong in theirs because she's just so rock solid in everything plus an amazing personality, but when they had to pick JUST ONE FAVE it's a whole different story. And obviously Somi's fans are the most numerous and rabid.

I could kind of understand Mina dropping to #18 because of the comments (still idiotic reason but haters gonna hate) but Pinky dropping to #19 was pretty nuts.

Sira was saved by the performance benefit, her votes numbered only 6000 without it. Only one of the new top 11 I can't understand at all (I can understand many changes since the ITSP benefit made a HUGE difference) is Sohee at #6. Don't get it, at all. But hey, Koreans gonna Korea. I can't understand all their mysterious ways.

It wasn't Dani's time yet... but it will come. At least she ended her run on a high note and received tons of praise from the very same knetz that used to hate her.


Next week, we indeed have some sort of a 1vs1 position battle thing. There's one week of voting for a single person again until the live finale on April 1st, where I imagine two teams will perform the wonderfully titled "Blah Blah Blah".


Nobody has really explained how it goes and what kind of benefit the winning team (or person?) will get. I guess there'll be live voting of some kind. I'll post more once I find out how it goes...

Live finale about to go down tomorrow! Join us at IRC to watch (April 1st at 23:00 KST / 10am EST / 17:00 Fin) if you like.


On the left, the ranking without the 22k benefit of the concept stage. Sira of course bumped out Shin (Ng Sze Kai) with her benefit. On the right, the actual ranking with benefits.

Who's in your final top 11? My ideal top 11 from the 22 would be:

01. Somi
02. Sejeong
03. Yoojung
04. Sohye
05. Chungha
06. Stone Buddha
07. Yeunjung
08. Doyeon
09. Park Soyeon
10. Mina
11. Jeon Soyeon

I'd also like plastic princess in there but not sure who I'd take out. Kaiser Sohye ( is too entertaining (in good and bad) to take out... dunno.

But likely what I think doesn't matter, only top six of these girls are for certain (99%) in the group. The bottom half will be a battle. But I have to say, I'm fine with most anything, all of the girls have their unique skills and charms, they made it this far and I don't actively dislike any one of them, so... good luck. :thumbup



One of my fave moments. That crown weighed heavy no doubt. I hope all the haters (who didn't have a single even remotely good reason to hate her) can fuck off now.

Her speech was perfect and she was a beacon of positivity and kindness through the whole ranking thing as well. She'll go places.

Basically for me 1-6 of the "no 22k benefit", then Yeunjung, Mina, Han Hyeri is cute, Park Soyeon, and I would otherwise say the rapper girl (Jeon Soyeon?) but idk how many rappers an 11-member group needs lol.

But mine won't be happening anyway so durdurdur

And the winners are:

01. Jeon Somi
02. Kim Sejeong
03. Choi Yoojung
04. Kim Chungha
05. Kim Sohye
06. Pinky
07. Jung Chaeyeon
08. Kim Doyeon
09. Kang Mina
10. Im Nayoung
11. Yu Yeunjung

Lovely but very long finale. Stages looked amazing (in all their blocky stream glory). Group's name is now the unfortunate "I.O.I" which is also way too close to AOA imo haha.

As far as the line-up goes:

01. Somi
02. Sejeong
03. Yoojung
04. Sohye
05. Chungha
06. Stone Buddha
07. Yeunjung
08. Doyeon

09. Park Soyeon
10. Mina
11. Jeon Soyeon

I'd also like plastic princess in there but not sure who I'd take out. Kaiser Sohye ( is too entertaining (in good and bad) to take out... dunno.
Can't complain too hard, I didn't expect to get this many (9.5 out of 11) of my ideal team in there.  :cow:

It's finally over! Finale was way too long.
So final lineup, no surprises! Super awesome for chungha who jumped ranks soo much after that one episode. A little sad that Kim Nayoung couldn't make it to be with her jellfish she gotta wait a year to debut with them =x

As for the group name...err ioi :/ lol. I don't think I've seen anyone happy about that name.

The two final stages in all their glory. I really liked how they did two completely different songs and performances. More than that I loved how they all performed together and forgot about the stupid benefit/rivalry stuff. Crush is hardly song-of-the-year material and with 22 girls it got a little messy but hey, it was still a lot of fun. And everything looked great.

Votes for the top 22:

01 - 858,333 - Jeon Somi (JYP)
02 - 525,352 - Kim Sejeong (Jellyfish)
03 - 438,778 - Choi Yoojung (Fantagio)
04 - 403,633 - Kim Chungha (M&H)
05 - 229,732 - Kim Sohye (Redline)
06 - 218,338 - Pinky (Pledis)
07 - 215,338 - Jung Chaeyeon (MBK)
08 - 200,069 - Kim Doyeon (Fantagio)
09 - 173,762 - Kang Mina (Jellyfish)
10 - 138,726 - Im Nayoung (Pledis)
11 - 136,780 - Yoo Yeunjung (Starship)
12 - 134,128 - Han Hyeri (Star Empire)
13 - 133,900 - Lee Suhyun (SS)
14 - 133,247 - Kim Nayoung (Jellyfish)
15 - 128,527 - Kim Sohee (Music Works)
16 - 128,454 - Yoon Chaekyung (DSP)
17 - 116,566 - Lee Haein (SS)
18 - 100,001 - Park Soyeon (Loen)
19 - 98,849 - Cathy (MBK)
20 - 75,058 - Jeon Soyeon (Cube)
21 - 42,461 - Jung Eunwoo (Pledis)
22 - 40,759 - Kang Sira (Chungchun Music)

Jebus, check how tight that race was for the 10th and 11th spot. Seven people roughly within 10k votes in there.

The final group is highly visual-oriented. It has two great singers and some competent ones, bunch of great dancers... but a little low on rappers. Im Nayoung and even Yoojung can pull off some rapping though. My group ideal (other than Sohye of course) was pretty performance-oriented, the Soyeons would've made it amazing, but this line-up is still pretty great, to be honest.

Hype as fuck. Tho this seems to be just a fun little thing for the fans, proper debut in May. Yoojung seems to be (half) absent, wonder if she got sick or something. :/

The group also did a brief but fun four-minute introduction thing (with eng subs!) at

Think I'll make an artist thread for the group once ep 11 subs are out so I don't spoil too many people...

Post by: Stryfe on April 05, 2016, 09:36:56 AM

It's a cute pre-release. The song sounds so obviously better as a studio version. Also, less ducks! :V

Can't really tell what is up with Yoojung in the video tho, she looks fine to me whenever she's on camera, but then there's moments of her talking to the other girls or something...

Guess the screentime distribution seems slightly uneven and netizens are already giving shit to Yeunjung for "hogging the spotlight", pushing Sejeong away and stuff (which was obviously just playful but anyway)... Somi pushing Chungha to the front in the end was cute, tho.


The legal gurls getting their booze and advertising wondollar on.

There's a P101 ep today, but it's probably just old backstage material of the winners that we've seen already during the show or online.

Next week and the week after they're gonna air IOI's new reality show.
