Produce 48 is an idol reality survival show made as a collaboration between the South Korean Produce 101 series by Mnet and the Japanese AKB48 group. There are ~96 participants from both countries and beyond. The goal is to form a girl group that will promote for several years. Members and their rankings are determined exclusively by audience votes. Details on team sizes, concepts, voting and the like have not been revealed yet so there will be plenty of speculation and rumours abound. Mnet has also stated that it is still finalizing many aspects of the show.

The show is set to premiere on June 15, 2018, and will air every Friday at 23:00 (KST) for 12 episodes.

The official site (http://produce48.mnet.com/) has every girl's profile, some pics and videos, although the videos are on a less than stellar player. So instead...

While the show doesn't have a dedicated Youtube channel (yet at least) Mnet Official Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/user/PlayMnet/videos) has all the Produce 48 stuff on it. Just might need to search a bit.

Check out Yubseyo's youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoOBpAt0U5aMrQcFS8N-eQQ/videos) with translations of many videos, including all of the intro videos.







I wasn't sure where to make this thread since it's a collaboration project between Korean and Japanese companies, but it SEEMS to be more catered towards a Korean audience, trainers, presenters, etc are all Korean, most contestants are Korean... so Korean Shibal seems like the best place for it.

I'm a Produce 101 addict, I even watched the second season with dudes (and currently watching the Chinese version, which is also great) so I very much suspect this will be delicious crack cocaine once again.

Just think of all this international girlbonding, it's gonna be great. :P

Still a month to go, but there's loads of material already, so... post your teams, favorites, opinions, etc!

Here's my initial Produce48 team, based on intro/pre-stuff, 6 korean + 6 japanese = 12 peeps. This has been one of the rumored sizes but there really is no concrete information at all. I could fill a team twice that size but I'll keep it small for now to keep this somewhat in hand.

Cross-posting this from my Twitter post (https://twitter.com/Stryferr/status/996774384999288834), check it out for subbed intro video links and more pics for each girl.

1) Choi Yena - Easiest choice first, her intro video (https://bit.ly/2k9ybWF) had basically everything. Cute, can sing & dance well, all-around package.
2) Sakura Miyawaki - Not sure what all she can offer performance-wise, but she is tremendously eye-catching... if her skills are even adequate, she's a great asset to have. She's also adept at wearing tiny pieces of clothing.
3) Ahn Yoojin - What a cutie, really stood out in the nekkoya perf. Also, she's a human air conditioner (https://bit.ly/2IP8DvT) and it's too damn hot in finland right now.



(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09772.jpg)  (http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09768.jpg)  (http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09767.jpg)

4) Nako Yabuki - Ugh, super-cute. Smol. Also, cute.
5) Lee Chaeyeon - Nako's tol korean girlfriend, a good chance she's the best dancer on the show.
6) Aoi Motomura - Speaking of dancing, here's a good one from the Japanese side. Cute to boot as well.



(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09766.jpg)  (http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09771.jpg)  (http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09775.jpg)

7) Yoon Haesol - beeeautiful girl with effortlessly beautiful vocals, even while just imitating other singers. Hope she can move her tush.
8) Miyu Takeuchi - From what I've seen... quite the individual. Need some vocals on the Japanese side as well, and she sounds pretty decent.
9) Heo Yunjin - More great vocals, pretty, tall & talented. Also a giraffe (https://bit.ly/2rV2lQD).

10) Miku Tanaka - I'm told Nako and Miku are a package deal and I wouldn't wanna ruin that. She's definitely cute, tho. Bonus for self-made Korean subtitles (https://bit.ly/2LcDL6T) haha.
11) Park Haeyoon - Love her smile, really nice voice.
12) Miru Shiroma - Eh, she seems like fun. I like monkeys, too. And I think a youtube commenter referred to her as a "crackhead" and that is exactly my type.

Okay that was pretty difficult, but that's my initial 12 picks, not really in order. There were so many good options, I'm actually surprised by the trainee quality especially on the korean side... the Japanese side is a bit harder to read but the show should be very, very interesting.

Looking forward to this and thanks for sharing your initial picks Stryfe san.

Really hoping Miyu makes this - have loved her voice for years!

I started getting into K-pop over the past years (thanks to Stryfe, Running Man, Twice and Blackpink). 
Since I also have a rich history with AKB48, this show came at the perfect time for me.
To make the most of it, I figured I'd write down some of my initial thoughts to get to know all the girls. Plus it might be fun to reflect on them later.

Stryfe posted his pre-show top 12, which I think is a fun idea. Making this list is part of my process to narrow it down.
I'll be sure to make a proper top 12 post later this week. I don't expect anyone to read the list down below.  XD

Finally, Produce 101 China has thought me to be brutally honest, so I hope some of these comments aren't too harsh, haha.
I based this mostly on their introduction video's and random footage from here and there.


Korean contestants:

Hong Yeji
- Not my type
- Looks older than 17 years old
- Good vocals!

Kim Yubin
- Nope.

Kim Dayeon
- Not sure if comic relief character
- Dancing skills are on point!

Cho Kahyun
- Annoying voice
- Kinda annoying in general

Ahn Yewon
- Pretty cute!
- Pineapple outfit makes her look like a J-pop girl

Lee Yujeong
- Born to be an idol
- Might be too young / unexperienced
- Mad cute

Choi Yeonsoo
- Deep voiced sexy chara
- Lacks a bit of enthusiasm

Yoon Eunbin
- Reversal charm might actually work
- Kinda cute with dancing skills
- Potential here for sure

Han Chowon
- Horrible introduction video
- Seems to lack dilligence

Park Jinny
- Hot as hell
- If she was in the running to become a Black Pink member, that says a lot about her skills.

Park Seoyoung
- Don't throw scissors on a wooden floor!
- She's trying way too hard to look sexy
- I don't like her face

Jang Wonyoung
- I like her enunciation
- Her intro felt too unnatural

An Yujin
- She's not as cute as she thinks she is

Cho Sarang
- She can sing, but she chose the wrong song to dance to
- Poor choice of outfit either

Son Eunchae
- She gives me Suda Akari vibes a little bit
- Dancing skills are good too

Kang Damin
- Gotta love the annoyingly bubbly maknae chara

Hwang Soyeon
- She has a wonky right eye, which can either be a charm point or distracting
- Might be some potential here, but I'm not convinced yet

Jo Ahyoung
- Airplane themed idols are done. Just ask Passpo.
- Luckily her bag is already packed

Park Haeyoon
- I don't like this style of vocals at all
- Ukeleles need to go away as well, I'm surrounded by them everyday

Lee Haeun
- She probably has a decent set of skills
- But she doesn't stand out, because her face is too generic

Kim Dahye
- Ooh, a Japanese x Korean halfie
- She looks confident, which results in a nice mix of cute and sexy   

Kim Nayeong
- So annoying! But not in the cute way like Kang Damin.

Park Jieun
- Voice is too hoarse and deep for this kind of chara
- She looks a bit old and tired already

Na Goeun
- Not my type at all, reminds me of Noro Kayo a bit
- Vocals seem pretty good tho

Kim Minju
- Gotta need a wacky chara for sure
- It can go either way with this one

Lee Sian
- Way to not hit the nail on the head
- What a strange introduction video
- I like her outfit tho

Bae Eunyoung
- Nope.

Jo Yuri
- There is a lot to like here!

Jang Gyuri
- She seems fun
- Wish she had chosen a normal outfit tho

Yu Minyoung
- Distracting eyebrows
- Rap not that convicing

Wang Ke
- I could make a wang pun as well
- I know several JAV actresses who wore this exact same outfit
- Stop saying wang!

Alex Christine
- Yeah, no.

Kim Minseo
- She's like a stereotypical pretty girl who never had to work a day in her life

Choi Yena
- Balancing between funny and hella annoying

Kim Sihyun
- Not bad at all
- After watching about 50 of these intro video's, she doesn't really stand out anymore

Wang Yireon
- Very elegant
- I think this is the kind of girl who would do well in a show like this
- Not really my personal pick tho

Kim Hyunah
- Try hard with a vengeance
- She looks pretty badass

Lee Chaejeong
- Army concept won't appeal to the Japanese fans
- Nor to me

Park Chanju
- She seems genuine, I'll keep an eye on her

Park Minji
- Pass.

Shin Suhyun
- No X-factor as of yet

Kim Choyeon
- Not my type at all

Kim Doa
- Cute hair and outfit
- Vocals and dancing are a bit iffy

Won Seoyeon
- She looks like the short-haired one in Twice
- I don't like her look

Lee Seunghyun
- Bonus points for 171 cm length

Lee Chaeyeon
- Another one with the doctor concept, but not as good
- Facial expressions look weird during her dancing

Chou Youngin
- Not bad, but not wow either

Yoon Haesol
- Very eloquent, lots of potential
- I kept expecting that jacket to come off

Choi Soeun
- This girl is pretty awesome
- A cute rapper is always good to have in a group
 
Go Yujin
- She looks good, another sexy chara

Kang Hyewon
- First (only) K-girl to pick a Japanese song
- Definitely potential here

Kwon Eunbi
- She feels like a veteran who didn't quite make it earlier

Kim Sohee
- She brings a smile to your face
- I hope she'll do well

Kim Suyun
- I think a gimmick like Suyun Energy will work well with the J-pop crowd

Kim Chaewon
- What an angel

Heo Yunjin
- Nope.

Lee Kaeun
- She's really pretty
- If she sings the way she talks we're in for a treat


Japanese contestants:

Hasegawa Rena
- Feels to forced
- I'm not into baseball

Yamada Noe
- She can be really entertaining, but she has no business being here
- I'm saying that for her own sake, there's gonna be tears

Kurihara Sae
- The intro video was forgettable
- I know Sae has a great body, so hopefully she can show it off a bit

Motomura Aoi
- I think this may be right up her alley, plus it came at the right time
- Cute crybaby, who is becoming more and more mature

Matsuoka Natsumi
- I never particularly cared for her and I still don't

Asai Yuka
- No idea who this is, but she's pretty cute
- She didn't showcase any skill whatsoever

Aramaki Misaki
- I already feel for her
- She's a delicate flower, who is gonna get crushed somewhere along the way
- She should've focused on her Fairy Wing momentum

Imada Mina
- She's lacking in the visual department

Tanaka Miku
- Like Aoi, I feel Miku is a great fit for this project

Yabuki Nako
- NakoMiku have been a pair since day one, so it'll be interesting to see if they'll stick together or go their own way
- I hope Nako has enough confidence

Murakawa Bibian
- Bit of a nutcase
- Horrible outfit for someone who loves clothing
- I don't think she's right for this project, typical J-pop girl

Miyawaki Sakura
- She was a beacon of hope in the dark ages of 48G after Maeda Atsuko left
- Destined for greatness, born to be an idol.

Matsui Jurina
- I've know Jurina since she was 11 years old in 2008
- She used to be fresh, fun and amazing
- But lately she's turned into a caricature of herself
- She's become so obsessed with becoming #1 that she lost all her charms

Naiki Kokoro
- She looks terrified

Murase Sae
- She looks completely different from what I remember
- She seems good with Korean, but otherwise I'm not impressed

Kato Yuuka
- Uuka is fresh and cute, fun to watch
- But I don't see her in a K-pop group

Shiroma Miru
- I guess people like her for her baby face and good body
- But personally I always thought of her as Milky light
- I don't think her intro video captured her selling points at all
- She should have gone sexy, because many of these girls do cute better than her
- That said, I think she has a decent shot of getting pretty far

Ichikawa Manami
- She has so much potential, but this video was really bad
- I think she lacks confidence and that's why nobody is gonna notice her

Shitao Miu
- Someone else had this exact same concept...
- Yukata looks nice

Shinozaki Ayana
- A third calligraphy video
- And yet another sexy chara who tries to be cute
- Her main appeal point are her boobs right? Is that gonna help her in Korea?

Sato Minami
- Hey, this girl is in one of my Bomb magazines
- Vocals are really bad
- Otherwise fresh, but that's not gonna be enough if you go up against NakoMiku

Nakano Ikumi
- We know she's great at dancing
- I think she will do very well if she can keep her emotions together''

Mogi Shinobu
- She looks pretty good in her introduction video
- She doesn't stand out in 48G, so I fera it'll be the same here

Nagano Serika
- As a fan of the Toyota Celica, Serika will always have my support

Takeuchi Miyu
- I don't like the way she sings
- I don't like the way she looks

Chiba Erii
- This girl is awesome
- She has guts and she is funny
- No idea if she can sing or dance tho

Nakanishi Chiyori
- Hasn't been funny in a long time

Honda Hitomi
- Not familiar with her, but I feel she could do well

Miyazaki Miho
- We all know she loves K-pop and has some friends in the industry
- Glad for her she can participate, but it should've come five years earlier

Oda Erina
- Great, every group needs a girl with a short cut

Kojima Mako
- For a while it seemed like she'd become a huge star, but haven't seen her in ages
- I think she's better off in Japan. She's a good J-pop idol.

Asai Nanami
- She looks so fragile
- I'm not a fan of saxophones

Goto Moe
- The timing is perfect for her
- One does not simply cover IU tho
- Perfect look, good attitude, she'll do well

Iwatate Saho
- Another one who I think is perfect for this
- She's great with languages, she'll pick up Korean in no time
- Mad aegyo skills

Muto Tomu
- Nothing against her, but I have no idea why she's so popular

Takahashi Juri
- She's in my top 5 of most disliked 48G members
- That says a lot considering there are like 300+

Next set of challenge videos is... karaoke! Lots of variety in these, here's a few of the ones I liked so far:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aJuodscohE

Miru Shiroma and Yuuka Kato doing Boystyle's Kokoro no Chizu, which was apparently featured in the One Piece anime.




https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXdE3FDZvKU

Heo Yunjin and Jo Yuri had a fun but well controlled performance of Girls' Generation's Holiday. Nice vocals.




https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=raWG6FP0NtA

Then there's a ton of just crazy fun. Here's fetus duo Lee Haeun and Cho Sarang performing Red Velvet's Red Flavor, or well attempting to haha. The dance is always fun, of course.

Man, I'm really glad they went with this instead of the utterly boring meringue challenge they had in season 2. All the challenges have been fun.

Man, this is gonna be so dramatic.

Quote
"Are we just here to make them look good?"

"I feel discouraged by the different level of talent between the Japanese and Korean members"

"How did you pass the audition?"

So, business as usual for Mnet.



--

There was a press conference today, so, more information about the show:

Quote
  • Final group will be 12 members
  • There is no quota for Japanese/Korean/Other members in this group
  • Only Koreans can vote
  • 2,5 years of promotions

Man, that's gonna make this... interesting to say the least. I was expecting some sort of a quota system (at least a soft one like 3-4 of each) but I wasn't sure if they were going to do any japanese or international voting.

While this is "fair" we'll get to see some interesting conversations about nationality and mnet is just going to milk all that drama as much as they can.

Wub. Well, since the show is almost here and Miku has apparently dropped out I'll do some last-minute pre-show team adjusting:

Even though the show has no national quotas as we've learned, I'll stick to a soft one for now but I'll adjust it based on the total number of contestants. Since there's way more Korean trainees, let's go with 7 Koreans, 5 Japanese.

I'll still stick to my original team for now (just dropping Miku), but I'll go through some Korean contestants I've had up for consideration.


Current roster:

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09764.jpg) (http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09774.jpg) (http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09775.jpg) (http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09768.jpg) (http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09765.jpg) (http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09766.jpg)

Roster updates:

Choi Yena - I'm slightly obsessed, cute wink vid, mystery box with chiyori was great, karaoke was... amazing
Ahn Yujin - insanely photogenic and cute, great eyecontact, A+ karaoke craziness with yena
Heo Yunjin - great wink video ending, fun mystery box with english, fun and skilled karaoke
Lee Chaeyeon - wonderful dancing at every opportunity, great karaoke perf
Park Haeyoon - breaks into song easily, it's kinda charming
Yoon Haesol - still there, ballad boredom danger tho

Miru - still derp, great karaoke perf
Nako - still cute as fuck, wink ace, mystery box was fun, also smol
Sakura - hilarious wink video, otherwise kinda just... there
Aoi - still cute
Miyu - korean skeelz





Candidates:

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09792.jpg)
Yoon Eunbin

The dancing mario. She's a super cute fetus with great dancing skills. Here's a clip of her dancing a year ago (https://bit.ly/2ybUhSh). Love her dancing, but she hasn't shown any sign of singing ability yet (although the karaoke vids might be a poor showcase for that)

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09793.jpg)
Park Jinny

Jinny is... really attractive and seems a little goofy as well. Of course a former YG-trainee would have a soft spot in my heart. I'm not sure about how good she really is as a performer yet, tho. I've seen some older videos where she seems alright. Karaoke was fine.
(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09798.png)
Kim Nayoung

The goofy girl with braces. She got my attention with the mystery box video where she was feeding grapes to Hitomi Honda, also sans braces hah. Karaoke was bonkers. She seems out there.
(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09796.png)
Jang Gyuri

There's something special about her... I've heard she's a pretty decent all-rounder, although there's rumours abound that she botched the first pd48 live performance.
(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09794.png)
Lee Haeun

Cute Charlie Chaplin girl, really cute Red Flavor karaoke.
(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09795.jpg)
Choi Soeun

Protect Me From Heavy Social Media Use
(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09797.jpg)
Park Minji

Minji was on my watchlist during the first season, never quite making it to the team. She is a very talented performer who didn't get any airtime early in season 1. By the time she started kicking ass in the performances, it was already too late and she was eliminated. It's a cautionary tale of how Mnet can really decide your fate, at least if you're not constantly putting yourself out there. Cam-whoring almost always pays off. And this season, it looks like she is going to frightening lengths in an attempt to stand out lol.


There's many, many others really but I should stop rambling, the show's almost here so we'll see more soon.

But for now, the spot goes to...


(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09799.jpg)

Yoon Eunbin. I'm a real sucker for cute dancing aces, I have to say. And she's really good. I kind of wanted Jinny in there too, and and and... we'll just see how this goes.

OK next time I post hopefully the show is airing XD

Raws here: Korean subs (https://twitter.com/Produce_48TH/status/1007675908654682112), Japanese subs (https://www.facebook.com/ATC48/videos/1787427804669748/) (both 720p)

You can see the first ranking here (http://produce48.mnet.com/pc/rank/1) but remember it's pretty much a pre-show rank since it closed way way before the episode ended. Next week should be a lot different.

For Rena, she was able to show off those

I was a little disappointed in Team Japan on how mild many of them were on
the box game (where the contestant puts their hand in the box, but can’t see if

Post by: SomethingWild on June 17, 2018, 06:55:43 PM
ok, finally watched episode 01 so let's pen down some thoughts and come up with an updated top 12!

Random thoughts:
- Man, there are a LOT of pretty girls participating.
- The difference in skill was even bigger than I had anticipated.
- I also didn't realize many of these Korean girls are famous to some extent already.
- Sting's 'Lee Kwang-soo' music playing every time Yamada Noe appears was just priceless.
- I'm probably outnumbered here, but I really disliked that Miyu / Saho / Goto performance.
- Also truly disappointed in Nakano Ikumi's performance. She's capable of so much more.
- Kang Hye Won, lmao. If I had a penny for every time a girl failed trying to cover IU...
- Mad props to the Produce editing team. It's so flawless and it adds the entertainment value.
- I felt the judges were spot on. I didn't think they were being unnecessarily mean or anything like that.

My Top 12 picks after Ep01:

:same 01. Kim Chaewon
:same 02. Park Jinny
:new 03. Jang Won Young
:up 04. Miyawaki Sakura
:down 05. Choi Soeun
:down: 06. Yoon Eunbin
:new 07. Choi Yena
:new 08. Chiba Erii
:new 09. Kang Damin
:down 10. Iwatate Saho
:down 11. Li Gaeun
:down 12. Kim Sohee

Runner up is Asai Yuka. So cute.
She's lacking in every area at the moment, but I like her talking voice.

Sorry, no fancy pictures. I simply don't have the time today.  :panic:

I like this, we'll be able to see quickly how an episode REALLY affects the rankings. The immediate rankings at the end of the episode don't yet reflect how that ep changed anyone's opinion.

Roster updates

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKmdH-Sq1bc

Choi Yena - funny, skilled, cute, entertaining, she's the best - scored an A, although I could barely hear her singing, guess the judges heard it better
Ahn Yujin - very cute, fun, showed singing and dancing skills - Scored a B, which seemed appropriate
Heo Yunjin - got shafted because of Kaeun's angel edit, looked like she'd have deserved more than a C
Lee Chaeyeon - stole the show with her dancing as expected - scored a well deserved A
Park Haeyoon - exceeded my expectations, seems quite ready to hit the stage - scored an A
Yoon Haesol - very few appearances in the first ep, not sure if she was graded yet either, probably not
Yoon Eunbin - almost no camera time, except one where she pouts and laments how ugly she is xD

Miru Shiroma - a nice "Oh My God" edit when Starship gurls got "only" a B, otherwise pretty much invisible
Nako Yabuki - teh cutest, however, hardly any cuts this episode
Sakura Miyawaki - cue dramatic music, stay tuned for episode 2
Aoi Motomura - provided the most nourishing and also cutest tears of the episode - Scored a rare D in the HKT48 disaster performance
Miyu Takeuchi - did great and scored the only Japanese A in the first episode, a bit shafted by the Moe illness edit


--

Like I said earlier I'll possibly rework my team after the second episode, but here's some people that caught my eye:

Kwon Eunbi - good dancing
Noe Yamada - she wasn't nearly as annoying as I expected, angel edit helped (with kwang soo's theme, too!) but she's fun no doubt
Wang Yiren - very pretty, flexible, skilled
Jang Wonyoung - giant baby, super cute, voice seemed a little baby-ish too but she definitely had some skills
Hwang Soyeon - well, I do have a working pair of eyes...
Wang Ke - pretty fucking funny
Yoo Minyoung - I don't necessarily need a rapper in my team but she's got the dibs right now
Saho Iwatate - quite charming, although overshadowed

There were others that performed but mnet highlights who they want to highlight. It's a bit sad but there's only so much airtime and some people are going to get shafted. You just HAVE to be memorable, in good or bad.

Thoughts:
- Woolim Entertainment is where it's at. All four of these girls are very likable and their performance was great to watch.
- Jang Won Young is mad cute. If she doesn't say or do anything stupid, I think she'll go far.
- Lee Kaeun is a tricky one, because I'm not sure I want someone that experienced in a group like this. That said, she's good and seems like a nice person.
- As much as I enjoy Chiba Erii and Asai Yuka, man, they have a looong way to go. They're not ready for this.
- Regarding Lee Chaeyeon, while I acknowledge her amazing dancing skills, she doesn't really grab me otherwise.

One other thing, I find it tricky to be neutral when it comes to evaluating the Japanese trainees.
They say they start from zero, but I've known most of these girls for many years.
Should I cast aside past experiences and start from zero as well?

Like, Matsui Jurina's performance of Dear J was lolworthy. It wasn't worthy of her status at all.
And Takahashi Juri actually comes across as a nice person, even tho I've seen her be the exact opposite on several occasions.
So yeah, in that sense I'm having trouble making my mind up about the Japanse girls.

So happy Mnet uploaded the full versions of the trainee performances, I really wanted to see Hitomi, Miu and Serika perform Mister!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZR_e6pYi4Oo

They all got pretty low grades but it's understandable since Bae Yoon Jung created that choreography.
I know Hitomi is going to rise soon though.  8)2

^ credit to all three girls, especially shout out to Miu with some good long leg moves

Mnet knows how to pull the viewers strings....
the comments from the girls watching the performance
during the performance make the performance that much
more interesting

Key to this is they performed a uniquely NMB48 style song, bringing
something new to the trainees, judges, and the producers, rather than a
cover of someone else’s song

Go Namba!

Next week, performances begin! The songs featured and team members have been spoiled ages ago by people who attended these shows, check out the lists here (https://www.reddit.com/r/Produce48/comments/8trdyh/first_group_performances_observation/) if you can't wait.

Anyway, two Avengers teams next week, going head to head! (Koreans call teams with top trainees like that lmao, ever since season 1)





Roster updates after ep 2

Choi Yena (Yehua, 1999)

Not much happening this week, but she's still cute and squishy.
Ahn Yujin (Starship, 2003)

I read that her original dream was to become an english teacher, which could explain her fluency (like in this prologue audition)
Heo Yunjin (Pledis, 2001)

Shafted this week, but I still believe... watching the uncut performance vid I'm quite certain she's more like a B.
Lee Chaeyeon (WM, 2000)

Her dancing is just so much fun to watch.
Yoon Eunbin (CNC, 2004)

Her dancing is really sharp, powerful and on point (like in her prologue audition), and she's really cute, it's a nice contrast haha.
Park Haeyoon (FNC, 1996)

Feels like she's doing great and she's a fine performer (even if she did kinda botch her Nekkoya audition), although we'll see if she shows more personality.
Miru Shiroma (NMB48, 1997)

She got a pretty great edit, superb smile, really a lot of fun... she made B rank but seems like she's going to fall a bit.
Nako Yabuki (HKT48, 2001)

Finally got her screentime, a great angel edit where she's deemed the pearl of F class - still no idea how she got there though, since all traces of her audition have vanished.
Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48, 1998)

While I don't think she deserved an A for her audition (B would have been generous) it looks like she's going to redeem herself... Interesting to see where her narrative goes, and she still looks amazing in a tiny bikini.
Aoi Motomura (HKT48, 1997)

Not much Aoi in this ep, more tears though which is nice and nourishing.
Miyu Takeuchi (AKB48, 1996)

Very little Miyu in this ep, although her showing Sakura how to sing was a pretty great moment haha.
Lee Haeun (MNH, 2004)

Her audition was pretty perfect, super cute, great dancing, decent singing.


So that means Yoon Haesol is out for now, a lot of it is to do with getting no screentime, and she was always on the top of the dangerlist anyway. We'll see how it goes.

On the watchlist, last week's picks of course, new ones... Erii is fucking adorable (and adorably bad), Hitomi Honda is great, plenty more really... Juri+Mako+Tomu doing Blackpink, bonus points for all y'all.

Keep your fingers crossed that your girl(s) make top 58... everyone below that will be eliminated.

More stuff and thoughts later, after I've seen the subs at the latest.
Title: Re: [TV] Produce 48
Post by: SomethingWild on July 01, 2018, 09:48:12 PM
Ep03 was a rollercoaster!

First, some thoughts about the updated ranks:

- Kang Damin went from B to A, yet they still barely mentioned her. Luckily she got plenty of time to shine being chosen for Nako's group.
- Nako from F to A! What a legend. She pwnd this episode. Top 12 material for sure.
- Motomura Aoi going from D to B. Steadily climbing the ranks. Good job.
- The two ex-YG girls are dropping like bricks. Jenny was barely in this episode, but she went from C to F. Her blonde friend went from C to D and made a pretty poor impression during the team challenge. I think they might have an attitude problem or something.
- Props to Asai Yuka climbing from F to D. Sadly, she ended up in the 'loser team' and I fear the worst for position. If anything, she definitely earned a place in my heart thanks to P48.
- Jang Gyu Ri from B to F seems like a method to generate some hype. She'll bounce back.

The team challenge en the backstage footage was interesting too. It showed a nice mix between companionship and rivaly. This is were the girls' true personality comes out.

- Yoon Eunbin really is cute. I didn't realize she was kinda tiny.
- Nako is some of genius for selecting the team she did.
- Saho going for the spotlight is good. She never got any of that in AKB48. However, what the other girls said is also correct; an AKB girl centering an AKB song is boring.
- Matsuoka Natsumi once again confirmed my image of her. You want to center, but refuse to try and sing the song? I have no kind words for this. Imada Mina didn't score any points either.
- This was the best reaction of the ep imo, haha:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3686Q6tcAc

Rest of the performances tonight! I don't know about you but I can't wait for this particular mess...

Chaejeong, the leader of Boombayah group 1, has been labeled a Snake for targeting the group with the worst skills and her cam (https://bit.ly/2zhpq76) has an insane amount of downvotes (14k atm vs 1.7k upvotes). I don't think it matters since she was super low to begin with, though. She's toast.

Boombayah group 2 gives me life (especially Erii's cam (https://bit.ly/2MQoOHK)), though. They're predictably awful and completely out of their comfort zone... I actually think they're so bad they're good. Everything looks and sounds hilariously half-assed (despite sticking to it 'til the end). Erii rapping is a meme already. Interesting to see how this will affect their future, they're gonna get a lot of sympathy for now at least. Likewise, will everyone hate everyone in BB group 1? Stay tuned...



Roster updates after ep 3

Choi Yena (Yehua, 1999)

Went down to B much to everyone's shock (well I knew she'd be A/B based on Nekkoya). Top tier in her VVV cam as a cute main vocal (her tone is interesting). She chomp <3 (literally).
Ahn Yujin (Starship, 2003)

Continues to be charming and versatile, uses her (plentiful) screentime well. Very driven (for her age too) to prove she's not just a pretty face.
Heo Yunjin (Pledis, 2001)

Kirin-chan finally gets center spot. And she looks fantastic in her cam, like (to quote shirenu) a "motivated Jiyeon".
Lee Chaeyeon (WM, 2000)

Continues to be a dance dynamo. Not much else outside that, decent vocals, some nice quirks here and there.
Yoon Eunbin (CNC, 2004)

She was super cute and expressive in Love Whisper, but got shafted in screentime. She might be gone next week, sadly.
Park Haeyoon (FNC, 1996)

Showing some real leadership in ep 3. Wonderful as a main vocal in the Like Ooh-Ahh perf.
Miru Shiroma (NMB48, 1997)

Fell to D which was to be expected after her troubles. She continues to be radiant, in her cam too.
Nako Yabuki (HKT48, 2001)

Nako basically owned episode 3. Now I'm quite sure she has joined the "lock for final group" posse.
Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48, 1998)

Her performance isn't really that great, but I guess it never was about that. I do hope to see something worthwhile eventually from the lead character of Sakura48.
Aoi Motomura (HKT48, 1997)

Hrm, did she do anything in ep 3, I forgot already. Really cute in VVV, but then again, she always is.
Miyu Takeuchi (AKB48, 1996)

It's becoming a meme (like her expressions) how she gets no screentime but just keeps rising. Solid cam performing an AKB48 song, which is to be expected.
Lee Haeun (MNH, 2004)

Not really the leader of her team, but acting like one... sure to create drama in ep 4. Hope it's beneficial. Stay tuned.

No changes to the roster this week, I'll consider it after all the performances are over. And eliminations are lurking around the corner anyway, might even wait for that.

On the watchlist, Miu Shitao is creeping up to the first runner-up position, her transformation in Peek-A-Boo (https://bit.ly/2lU2gKy) is incredible and I've been lowkey watching her ever since I saw her dance in episode 0 (https://bit.ly/2u10GuK).

--

Just a few quick comments on this week's episode, I'd wait for subs normally but I had to comment on some stuff:

- That audience was fucking strange. I feel like they were on top of things at some times, but completely fucking weird at others, I could not understand some decisions... All over the place there were weird high votes for some people that did ok, weird low votes for some people that did fantastic, I couldn't understand what the audience was looking for, at all. Of course we need to remember they got the raw, unedited audio and performance, we got the mnet deluxe audio/video extravaganza (and there was a LOT of autotuning going on)
- BB1 team may be snakes or whatever, but their performance was a hundred times better than BB2's. Maybe a thousand times. Yet they still lost. Of course, people can vote for whatever they find interesting, weird or funny but, that was fucking weird lmao. Did they just vote coz the Japanese girls were cutely fumbling through dance moves and they found it endearing (I know I did, but still...)? They don't know the backstory, at least not that well...
- Heo Yunjin finally shining and getting rewarded. I found Miyu votes weirdly low, tho maybe it was because she was wearing a yellow... curtain.. or something.
- VVV battle was predictably a bloodbath, I didn't mind any of the weird vote distribution either, since I had 3 girls in each team on MY team lol
- Park Haeyoon was a shining light in the Like Ooh-Ahh perf, and Moe somehow stole her thunder for some aforementioned audience-related reason, I guess

I think even my biases start to show when I'm watching my faves perform, so I could be talking out of my ass, but anyway, I found a lot of tonight's episode pretty wack! xDDDD



Edit: Oh and Miu Shitao? Wow. Wow wow wow. Glad she got recognition.





Title: Re: [TV] Produce 48
Post by: SomethingWild on July 07, 2018, 10:41:57 PM
^Agreed on the weird voting results. I was like 'wtf how' multiple times, haha.

Thanks to episode four I learned that several girls I thought were Korean are actually 48G members, lmao.
Asai Nanami for one. And plenty of others I've never even heard of. Good for them to get themselves out there.

----------------

Let me use a different top 12 picks arrangement this time.

There are two girls who are locked in for me:

01. Jang Won Young
02. Kim Chaewon

They both are exactly what I'm looking for in an idol. I think Jang Won Young speaks for herself.
Everybody who say her perform must've seen she's a natural. Kim Chaewon seems to be doing good enough to make next week's cut, so that's great.
She hasn't gotten that much attention yet, but at least her Twice performance was excellent. Her voice suited the song perfectly, as did her appearance.

This week I also picked up a new favorite:

03. Jo Yuri

For some reason, she stands out. Star aura or whatever you want to call it. Her main attraction are her husky vocals.
Holy crap, this girl can sing. I went back to check the previous eps and yeah, this girl needs to be in the group. She seems like a lot of fun in general as well.

Then there are a couple of girls with their own unique charms:

04. Yabuki Nako
05. Lee Sian
06. Yoon Eunbin

Nako received the most votes for a reason. Her performance was excellent. She's made cute. A great idol.
Lee Sian actually reminds me of IU when it comes to her expressions. Remember when Park Ji-sung double crossed IU on Running Man? Sian pulled exactly that expression, haha.
Yoon Eunbin's gap moe is simply adorable. Cute little girl, who can dance like crazy.

Finally, I have a numbers of girls that can go either way. In no particular order:

- Park Jinny: I dropped her a bit last week, but seeing her again I can't deny that I like her a lot.
- Choi Soeun: She failed to make a name for herself this episode, but she still looked good. Her biggest enemy at the moment is time. I know she has the potential.
- Choi Yena: She can be quirky and fun, but I'm not convinced I'd want her in the group.
- Kang Hye Won: She's a bit strange. She can't really sing or dance that well, but she's fun to watch and super pretty.

That leaves the two aces.

- Lee Kaeun
- Miyawaki Sakura

But man, I honestly don't know where to place these two anymore. Lee Kaeun speaks both languages, she has tons of experience and is obviously very skilled.
She would be an asset to the group. However, remember when AKB48 had that 37 year old member? That's who Lee Kaeun looked like this episode.
And Sakura... Can this group have their own identity and style is Sakura is included? Isn't she too famous?

So for me it's the six girls I mentioned, plus Jinny. Let's see who'll make the cut next week!

---------

edit:

Some more random thoughts:
- Kim Hyunah is pretty damn hot
- I dropped Saho from my list. I've always liked her a lot, but she's not radiant enough for a global super group.
- I still barely have any Japanese girls in my list, but I just don't know how to evaluate them...

Yena taking care of that idol image... :lol:



Roster updates after ep 4

Choi Yena (Yehua, 1999)

Yena's a bit like this season's Choi Yoojung... she's a versatile performer and a goofball. Her voice is cute and a little husky, it stands out really well. Still my #1.
Ahn Yujin (Starship, 2003)

Yujin is definitely the frontrunner here, she has so much potential and is ready to try out everything. Great visual, a little goofy and ambitious. Many facets here really.
Heo Yunjin (Pledis, 2001)

Motivated Jiyeon really shined as a center and got rewarded. She'll go far.
Lee Chaeyeon (WM, 2000)

I was surprised by her vocals, she sounded great. Of course mnet filtered the fuck out of everything but still.
Yoon Eunbin (CNC, 2004)

I'm really glad her team won, because she might be the first and only member of my team to get eliminated next week. Fingers crossed.
Park Haeyoon (FNC, 1996)

Angel leader, stellar performer, wonderful main vocal, praised by the judges. She's definitely a keeper.
Miru Shiroma (NMB48, 1997)

Not much Miru in the episode, but it seems like she's enjoying herself.
Nako Yabuki (HKT48, 2001)

Sky's the limit for Nako the Ultimate Popularity Queen.
Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48, 1998)

Despite how eyecatching she is, I'm starting to get a little tired of her shtick and painfully average skills. Might drop her if this keeps going on every week.
Aoi Motomura (HKT48, 1997)

Oof not much screentime here, but she's still cute as fuck.
Miyu Takeuchi (AKB48, 1996)

Oh, Miyu is still on this show? Yup, in that big yellow thing. Screentime, please.
Lee Haeun (MNH, 2004)

Solid performance although her audition remains her best work.


So yeah, no changes to the roster this week either, I decided to wait until after eliminations. Watchlist & Contenders:

Miu Shitao - Wonderful visual (http://devilsoul.tistory.com/2997), great dancer
Jang Wonyoug - She pretty much has it all, a born idol, although I still find her vocals a bit too baby-like, but I can cope
Hitomi Honda - Extreme cutie-pie, great dancer

And a bunch of others, really... I'd just end up mentioning 20 people or something...

--

And only top 58 will remain after this week's episode. Prayer circle and goat sacrifice for Yoon Eunbin and Park Jinny (mercilessly shafted)... many other cuties will be going home too, well, that's business as usual with Produce but still rough every time.. prepare your tissues. ;___;
