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. ;___;

Oof, well, that's first eliminations over and done with, how is everyone doing? Lose any favorites? Always rough, I lost Yoon Eunbin and Park Jinny, and many others I've been keeping an eye on, it's never easy... at least there's always all those individual cams and moments that'll never vanish.

Anyway, next up are there position evaluations. The girls will pick a dance or a vocal group, then practice and perform just like the last time. One difference here is (if it's like season 1) is that vocal groups focus on the vocals and will be singing live (example 1 (https://bit.ly/2uIFZn5)) while the dance groups pre-record the vocals and concentrate on the dance choreography and performance (example 2 (https://bit.ly/1ZipLsA)).

The performances have now been held and filmed so there are again plenty of audience eyewitness accounts around. You can read some of them in this tweet thread by Yubseyo (https://twitter.com/Yubseyo/status/1019182141580574720), spoiler warning obviously.




Roster updates after ep 5

Choi Yena (Yehua, 1999) 1st Elimination Rank: #9

Still going strong, although her goofy influence has waned a bit, hope she keeps getting fun edits.
Ahn Yujin (Starship, 2003) #2

Flawless and fun once again. She should overtake Kaeun in the next ranking now that the votes are reset and that Pledis pre-vote isn't as strong.
Heo Yunjin (Pledis, 2001) #22

Beautiful, dorky. Kirin-chan is a concept and a meme already. Most definitely on the rise.
Lee Chaeyeon (WM, 2000) #10

She's not JUST a great dancer, there's a few fun and dorky moments here and there, especially in the Shouting In Silence segment and some backstage vids.
Miu Shitao (AKB48, 2001) #36

Wonderful visual, talented dancer, butt aficionado, country bumpkin. I really like her more and more every day.
Park Haeyoon (FNC, 1996) #43

Surprisingly low ranking looking at all of her accomplishments. Could use a bit of an angel edit, or any edit will do since she is an actual angel.
Miru Shiroma (NMB48, 1997) #16

Got some nice "sexy+cute" votes from other trainees, got tormented by Soyou (not sure she hated it tho...)
Nako Yabuki (HKT48, 2001) #7

Unsurprisingly rose into the top 12. Aiming for top 5, and I'd say it's very feasible next ranking.
Jang Wonyoung (Starship, 2004) #3

As I implied previously, Jang Wonyoung has this idol thing down to a tee. She and Yujin are a pretty formidable (and dorky) duo.
Aoi Motomura (HKT48, 1997) #44

Still there, still amazingly cute. Hope she gets some screentime.
Miyu Takeuchi (AKB48, 1996) #11

Her speech was perfect and people seemed to like it a lot. Now, screentime, please!
Lee Haeun (MNH, 2004) #35

Spunky Fetus has been solid throughout, although she should avoid crying, not a good look for her haha.


Out:

Yoon Eunbin - sadly eliminated. Despite getting plenty of love in the pre-show stuff, her rare moments on the actual show didn't manage to captivate enough people.
Sakura Miyawaki - she's just been so painfully average performing and her shtick is growing slightly tiresome. I'll continue keeping an eye on her, because how can you not?


Watchlist:

Hitomi Honda - Extreme cutie-pie, great dancer
Sakura Miyawaki - you got the goods, now show me something interesting

TOP 58] PRODUCE 48 OFFICIAL RANKING EP 5 [180713] (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0x6-UeWwmb8)
Title: Re: [TV] Produce 48
Post by: SomethingWild on July 19, 2018, 01:18:44 PM
Let's see what we have now that the dust has settled.

First, a quick look at some of my favorites who didn't make the cut.

- Ikumi Nakano: Such bad luck to end up at #59. To be honest, I've been quite disappointed with her performance.
We know for a fact that she is a great dancer, but she completely failed to show it.
They even portrait her as a bad dancer, since she's lacking some basic techniques apparently. So yeah, not sure what happened here.

- Kang Damin: Going out with an A-rank must hurt. There is a lot of competition in the 'cute maknae' category and I guess she drew the short straw.

- Yoon Eunbin: Very sad to see her go. She has a unique vibe, which I guess didn't appeal to enough people.
Amazing dancer, very cute. I hope she'll keep at it, because I want to see her again in the future.

- Park Jinny: She said it herself on Instagram; nothing she did got aired. She blew me away with her charisma from the first second of her introduction video.
Her eyes so are so pretty, she's like a fox. This is the second major setback in her trainee years, so I'm not sure what'll happen to her now.

- Yuka Asai: Mad cute. Her peers (Sato Minami, Chiba Erii) upstaged her.
I'm really glad I got to learn about her existance through this show. Let's hope her experiences ghere will benefit her in SKE48.

- Ahn Yewon: I really like this type of girl. We've had similar types in AKB48 (Suzuki Shihori comes to mind), but they always do poorly in popularity rankings.

- Choi Soeun: She ranked pretty much last (89 out of 92) and that just blows my mind. Did you guys see her introduction video?
She was energetic, eloquent, funny, good rapper. Like Jinny, they barely showed her. The segments that did air weren't that good unfortunately.


------

 
Now let's take a look at the girls who did make it and update the roster to 12 again with some new names!

:up 01. Kim Chaewon: She actually got a lot of really good expoure this episode. She even got voted in the top 7 visual centers by the other members. She's back as my number one as well.

:down 02. Jang Won Young: I don't really have to explain anymore, I think everybody sees her charm.

:same 03. Jo Yuri: She's entertaining and has an amazing voice.

:same 04. Yabuki Nako: Born to be an idol. Glad her charms made it across the Japanese border.

:same 05. Lee Sian: I like her look and serious attitude.

:new 06. Kang Hye Won: She's a bit of an underdog. Not that great at anything, but you can't not look at her when she's on stage.

:new 07. Choi Yena: Like Jo Yuri, she's just a pleasure to watch. Very entertaining.

:new 08. Kim Hyunah: With Jinny gone, I need to feast my eyes on someone else, haha. Great performer for sure.

:new 09. Wang Yiren: Like the trainees mentioned, she's simply very pretty. Her gracefulness really gives her an edge over the others.

:new 10. Goto Moe: To be honest, I fear they are building her up a little too much. She's can't sing nor dance that well. I hope she won't crack under the pressure. That said, she is charming and I think she'll become a valuable member in the group.

:new 11. Lee Chaeyeon: I didn't really like her at first, but this episode showed a different side of her. She's already good, so I'm looking forward to seeing her develop even further.

:new 12. Kim Sohee: Not sure who to pick for this spot, but I have a weakness for the Woolim girls. Sohee, not sohee.

Shit, I didn't even realize she was that low, also I almost forgot she was there! They buried the fuck out of her, dammit.

Post by: SomethingWild on July 21, 2018, 09:58:59 PM
Ep06 review let's go!

- Na Goeun VS Jo Yuri: Both of these girl can sing very well, but to me Goeun's voice sounds very generic in the sense that it lacks character. On the contrary, every time Yuri opens her mouth I'm blow away. Plus her voice is easily identifiable, which is also an important factor.

- Kang Hye Won the rapper: Did she seriously not know she was supposed to write her own rap? If so, that's pretty bad. Otherwise it's a kinda sneaky way to appeal. Her frustration looked genuine, so I won't hold that against her. The rapping wasn't special, but damn she's beautiful.

- Han Cho Won: Her voice was really good during the performance. It has a tad more character than Goeun in my opinion. I actually know a girl who looks just like her, but I never got along well with her, haha. I know I aren't supposed to dislike Cho Won for it, but every time I see her I'm reminded of that.

- Lee Sian the center: She tends to have this blank expression a lot of the time, which I really like, haha. But honestly, given this team, picking her as the center was probably not the right thing to do. She did well, but yeah, I think this caused her more frustration than it was worth.

- Park Hae Yoon: In my initial evaluation post I wrote: "I don't like this style of vocals at all." I can't remember what she sang at the time, but boy was I wrong. This performance was so good, I actually got a little teary eyed. It's interesting, because I never noticed this girl before at all.

- Team Dance Aces: Usually when multiple talented people get together it becomes a mess. So props to Eunbi for constantly re-evaluating everything. Actually, props to Eunbi again for the actual performances as well, because she is the one who stood out to me the most.


Ranking update:
:same 01. Kim Chaewon: she came out with a ponytail!!!
:up 02. Jo Yuri: epic vocals
:down 03. Jang Won Young: still great
:same 04. Yabuki Nako: born to be an idol
:up 05. Wang Yiren: graceful
:same 06. Kang Hye Won: gorgeous klutz
:new 07. Shiroma Miru: she's still growing on me
:up 08. Goto Moe: genuine
:down 09. Lee Sian: majime
:down 10. Choi Yena: all round entertaining
:down 11. Kim Hyunah: eye candy
:new 12. Park Hae Yoon: surprise of the week

Out:
Kim Sohee: cute, but failed to impress
Lee Chaeyeon: yeah, not really my type after all

Here's Aoi Motomura's individual cam for "Handclap". I'm posting it coz it's great, Aoi is amazingly cute and fantastic in it... and she's most definitely gone come next elimination. Shafted. Sadness.

So yeah, individual cams are out, go check 'em out at the usual place (https://www.youtube.com/user/PlayMnet/videos).




Roster Updates after ep 6

1
Choi Yena (Yuehua, 1999) #9

Not the greatest idea to pick a group with all the popular girls in it. Did well, looked fantastic, but didn't particularly stand out.
2
Ahn Yujin (Starship, 2003) #2

Like with Yena, did great but was surrounded by even better dancers... stellar visual and great pronunciation, would love to hear her english some more.
3
Heo Yunjin (Pledis, 2001) #22

Only a couple of fleeting (beautiful) moments in ep 6, but aced the vocals and visuals in her cam. Already #10 and possibly still rising.
4
Miu Shitao (AKB48, 2001) #36

Another of my favorites who wasn't featured in this episode. Her cam was faaaaantastic, however, and once again viewers agree.
5
Nako Yabuki (HKT48, 2001) #7

Nako fighting for #1 is something I didn't quite see coming. Should be interesting. Not much of her in ep 6, cam was solid, tho, with her decent, unique vocals on display.
6
Park Haeyoon (FNC, 1996) #43

Getting more moments to shine and impress with her vocals, her rank was already #30 and should improve further in the next ranking.
7
Miru Shiroma (NMB48, 1997) #16

Stood out not really dance-wise, but performance-wise. Also might have had some fans in the audience but still, did good. Sexay.
8
Miyu Takeuchi (AKB48, 1996) #11

Another round of "Wheeeeeeere's Miyu?" According to eyewitnesses, her perf was... not great, but the cam seems fine. Could be some angel editing (angel processing?) of course.
9
Aoi Motomura (HKT48, 1997) #44

Her Handclap cam was utterly fantastic, I'm just afraid it's probably too late and I'm not seeing enough cam views to suggest otherwise.
10
Lee Chaeyeon (WM, 2000) #10

Dorkface did good dancing.
11
Jang Wonyoung (Starship, 2004) #3

Haven't seen so many "That made me feel really awkward" postings on forums before... lmao... Well, what can you do.
12
Han Chowon (Cube, 2002) #47

The darkest of horses. I went back to watch her intro and audition and it just baffles me how bad choices those were. Her voice was a real surprise.


Watchlist

Lee Haeun - Just awkward screencaps this week, and not much happening in general, so demoted for now. Cam was fine, however... might not be enough to save her.
Kwon Eunbi - Really growing on me. Great leadership skills and a fantastic dancer.
Hitomi Honda - Super cute, great dancer. Lurking just behind my top 12 for quite some time.
Jo Yuri - Fantastic vocals as usual. Without Haeyoon I'd be really tempted to include her just to get a main vocal.
Title: Re: [TV] Produce 48
Post by: SomethingWild on July 28, 2018, 10:07:05 PM
Ok, let's write down some thoughts on the BEST EPISODE EVER! lol

Team New World

- Kim Chaewon got so much good screentime! Her story was interesting, she showed improvement on various aspects and she looked amazing throughout.
- The comment about her singing as a robot is interesting, because I feel she sings in the typical Woollim style I know from Lovelyz. Her performance was excellent.
- Nako giving the center position away worked well on two levels. It made her look good and I feel Huh Yunjin did a much better job.
- About Huh Yunjin, I really liked her performance, but somehow it lacked the emotion Park Haeyoon showed us last week.
- Erii's hype seems to have passed, but at least she provided us with some laughs again.
- The ranking for this group was INSANE. I felt there was a slim chance Chaewon could beat Nako, so that was already great. But then I was like "Why are they dragging out the battle for #1?". I can't believe Chaewon actually won it. Holy crap. I didn't know whether to scream, cry or laugh. So happy for her.

Team Aoi

- From the start, Kim Choyeon seemed to be fixated on the sexy concept, because apparently that's her thing. I think Aoi was spot on in saying to should be cheerful and genki to fit the song.
- Aoi did great, and she probably didn't deserve to ranked last. However! Honestly? She really was invisible to some extent. I blame her outfit. The dark green didn't stand out at all, especially in combination with her black hair. The others all had some color accent.
- My eyes were actually drawn to Mako most of the performance. She looked hot.
- I feel Sae's appeal with the butt shake was a bit cheap. Can't believe that worked.
- The one who truly was invisible was Muto. Nothing against her, but I didn't notice her at all.

Team BTS

- Kinda done with the Gyuri sob stories at this point tbh.
- Poor Saho, to be in a team with three people being good at Korean.
- Really happy for Myao. I mean, at one point in AKB48 she was destined to be the next Mayuyu, but then it all went downhill. It's cool she can showcase her love for Korea in such a way.

Team Leftovers

- When you look up 'woman' in the dictionary, you see a picture of Kim Hyuna.
- Actually, Lee Sian pwnd this segment with her reaction at 1:03:40

Team Touch

- Kim Minju looks so much like Kang Hyewon. IIRC they came out after each other during the introduction episode as well.
- Miu and Hitomi looked good this performance.

Team Girl Crush

- Props to Bibian. She sang well and looked charming.
- Park Seo Young has such a lousy attitude. I hate how she still outranked Bibian, despite not even knowing her own lyrics.
- Sakura looked a bit goofy, but she tried her best. But yeah, this doesn't suit her. She's not a badass, haha.

Ranking announcement

- Kim Chaewon got third overall! That's just amazing. Hopefully it'll reflect in the online votes as well, but with the 5K bonus and this excellent exposure, making top 30 shouldn't be a problem.
- Miru got robbed. How in the world did Sae win this?!


As for my own ranking, I'm replacing Goto Moe with Kojima Mako.

:same 01. Kim Chaewon
:same 02. Jo Yuri
:same 03. Jang Won Young

Just a touch of Miu's love~  :heart:




https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzab4DwX77M

Backstage fluff best fluff. The performances were fun - especially the dance perfs, because 99% of ballads put me to sleep - though the audience was just completely random again, getting some stuff right, some stuff wrong, some stuff, eh.

Han Chowon winning overall vocal vote: well deserved (tho you could argue for Haeyoon), she looked amazing and sang her ass off. Her vocals were very surprising. Beautiful stuff.
Sae Murase winning overall dance vote: well, this is more subjective than the vocals again, I guess. I think the audience was very horny, or Sae's "Would you like to be mine" really seduced people.

That actually makes me think, I wonder if the audience would vote differently if the girls didn't get their "final pitch" after the performance. Because then stuff like a Japanese girl cutely saying something in Korean wouldn't affect, you know, your actual vocal/dance prowess that you were supposed to be judged upon. Eh, who knows. #JustIdolThings anyway.



Roster Updates after ep 7

1
=
Choi Yena (Yuehua, 1999) #9

Nothing new this week. Is absolutely safe, but could slip out of the top 12 in the elimination rankings.

Ahn Yujin (Starship, 2003) #2

Nothing new this week. Should be top five.
3

Heo Yunjin (Pledis, 2001) #22

Bit of a shitty edit but pulled through. I thought she was clearly the best out of her group but... can't trust mnet, vocal filtering, or the audience. Scored highly in any case. Should be top 12.

Absolutely the best of her group, but eh, the audience is just like a random number generator. Her star has been on the rise though (she's a naver favorite), so she should be safe.
5
=
Nako Yabuki (HKT48, 2001) #7

Nako got the angel edit and played the game perfectly. Her vocals were passable, but cuteness and personality win idol contests. Should be top five.
6
=
Park Haeyoon (FNC, 1996) #43

Probably deserved to win the overall vocal vote but again, there's too many moving parts and the audience is highly unreliable. Should be safe.
7
+2
Aoi Motomura (HKT48, 1997) #44

First I thought she had the best outfit and performance but observed as a whole that outfit might have blended into the background and screwed her... a real shame. Probably a goner.
8
+4
Han Chowon (Cube, 2002) #47

Overall win was a real boon for her and ensured her safety through the next elimination. She could even enter top 12.
9
-1
Miyu Takeuchi (AKB48, 1996) #11

Sang well, although audience reports weren't good, so could be angel filtering. Koreans love her, so she should be top 12.
10
-3
Miru Shiroma (NMB48, 1997) #16

Almost won the overall dance (horndog) vote. Should be safe, although no idea where she'll rank.
11
-1
Lee Chaeyeon (WM, 2000) #10

Nothing new this week. Could slip out of the top 12.
12
-1
Jang Wonyoung (Starship, 2004) #3

Nothing new this week. Should be top five.


Watchlist:

Lee Haeun - Did great, but didn't stand out enough and placed last. Sad to see her go, but it seems inevitable.
Kim Chaewon - Cute robot got her first proper screentime, and did well. Should be safe.
Hitomi Honda - Did well, I read that she was sick or something during the perf though. Should be safe, perhaps top 12.
Kwon Eunbi - Should be top 12.
Jo Yuri - Should be safe.

Ep08 was a rollercoaster!

First of all, a quick look at the girls we lost this round.

- We lost pretty much all the cute Japanese girls. Bibian, Aoi, Misaki, Erii, Minami, Noe, Nanami...
- We also lost several 48G veterans like Saho, Mako and Tomu.
- Out of my top 12, I think I only lost Kim Hyunah, which was expected.
- The worst thing for me this episode, was probably losing Ko Yu-jin. I was really looking forwards to her upcoming performance, which now will never happen.

When I opened Twitter by accident, I saw everybody tweeting about Takeuchi Miyu.
Based on the tone of the messages, I figured she didn't make the cut. I was surprised to see she actually did make it, albeit at the very last spot.
Personally I'm not particularly fond of Miyu on any level, so to see Ko Yu-jin leave instead of her was a tough pill to swallow.
Or, if Murae Sae hadn't robbed Shiroma Miru, then it also would've been fine. lol

Who do we have left?

- Kang Hye Won pwing like a boss, haha. After they announced Kim Min-ju, I actually thought she wasn't gonna make it. Sato Minami sob story was pretty sad.
- Good to see many of my favorites ranking up. Jo Yuri, Kim Chaewon, etc. all did well.

Yeah, not much to say otherwise. Everything is progressing pretty smoothly I'd say!

Mnet posted midweek rankings - each voter only has 2 picks now instead of 12 - and the results are pretty wild!

01. Miyawaki Sakura +6
02. Kang Hyewon +1
03. Miyazaki Miho +24
04. Takeuchi Miyu +26
05. Lee Gaeun +3
06. Shitao Miu +16
07. Yabuki Nako -5

09. Honda Hitomi +3
10. Lee Chaeyeon +7

26. Heo Yunjin -15
27. Na Goeun +2
28. Wang Yiren -14
29. Lee Sian -10
30. Kim Sihyun -6

I always thought Miu might do better with 2 and 1 pick rankings because she's gone kinda viral and the guys (obviously) like her a lot. But yeah, it's more and more about fanbases now. It's just a few days worth of votes and 1-pick could change this whole thing again. I like or really like about 20 of the girls and I'm cool with the rest so any outcome is at least "fine" I suppose.

For the eliminations though, I got all the predictions right... except for Miyu, of course. My team comments (mostly) ignore these midweek votes.



Roster Updates after ep 8

1
=
Choi Yena (Yuehua, 1999, age 18) #16

My prediction was correct, as she slipped out of top 12. Hopefully she gets more moments and hopefully knetz will stop only voting for visuals.
2
+2
Miu Shitao (AKB48, 2001, age 17) #22

Safe as predicted, although I expected her to be even higher. Things are looking up, tho... I really hope Miu goes all the way, she's really thriving in a kpop environment.
3
-1
Ahn Yujin (Starship, 2003, age 14-15) #4

Top five as I predicted, pretty good for the precious few moments she had. Still potentially the overall best "idol" of the bunch, just needs to learn how to play the game.
4
-1
Heo Yunjin (Pledis, 2001, age 16-17) #11

Top 12 as predicted. Mnet's greed edit might come back to haunt her, though.
5
=
Nako Yabuki (HKT48, 2001, age 17) #2

Nako is doing as well as expected.
6
=
Park Haeyoon (FNC, 1996, age 21-22) #18

Well deserved 25 spot leap for angel leader and main vocal Haeyoon. Since the beginning I thought I saw something special in this girl, I'm happy I was right.
7
+1
Han Chowon (Cube, 2002, age 15) #9

The darkest of horses. From #88 to #9 is one hell of a feat.
8
+1
Miyu Takeuchi (AKB48, 1996, age 22) #30

No words for this rank. To be honest, Miyu has yet to blow me away on this show but being buried with no screentime and "alleged" #30 spot just reeks of mnet rigging.
9
+1
Miru Shiroma (NMB48, 1997, age 20) #13

Miru the Chair.
10
Hitomi Honda (AKB48, 2001, age 16) #12

She's consistently cute and a great dancer. Her voice is very chipmunk, but then again, so are her cheeks.
11
=
Lee Chaeyeon (WM, 2000, age 17) #17

Predictable fall from top 12, she just didn't have many moments.
12
=
Jang Wonyoung (Starship, 2004, age 13-14) #1

Jang Wonyoung being #1 was predictable but still, kinda silly. Her sympathy edit should help even more, I mean, worked for me. Also, can she even attend a late live finale, being so young? Stay tuned...


Watchlist

Kim Chaewon - Princess of Woollim, on the rise.
Kwon Eunbi - Dance Mama Irene Clone. Steady top 5 spot (at least before 2 and 1 picks)
Jo Yuri - Top 12 spot in the eliminations, good going for vocal powerhouse Yuri.
Kim Nayoung - Waow she made it, I never expected her to make it this far. She's a fluffy ball of feelgood, here's hoping she makes it to the final.

Produce 48 Ep09 random thoughts:

- The stuff they said about Lee Chaeyeon was really accurate. She can sing and dance well, but I don't find her that interesting otherwise. She needs to find her own charm.
- I'm surprised Wang Yiren did so poorly. From what I remember she always moved gracefully, but this episode she seemed like a wooden stick. Nerves, I guess.
- Kwon Eunbi is so tiny. I had no idea.

- There was a glimps of Kim Chaewon rapping, which was just mad cute. At 58:07.
- Na Gaeun doesn't seem to know the difference between singing and screaming. I massively disliked her performance.
- Jo Yuri just pwns as soon as she opens her mouth. Every single time.

- Lee Seung-gi x Lee Hong-gi random banter was hilarious.
- Kim Minju was good this episode. Very likable.
- Choi Yena nailed that rap part Eunbi was practicing, haha.
- Miyazaki Miho looks so old nowadays. With all due respect. Lol
- First time noticing Kim Sihyun.

Post by: SomethingWild on August 18, 2018, 10:44:40 PM
Ep10 already!

Team 1000%
- On the whole a rather forgettable performance.
- The only one who caught my eye was Kim Minju.

Team I Wish:
- This was interesting, because it has three op my top favorites and one of my most disliked trainees.
- Jo Yuri didn't really stand out in terms of visuals, but she more than made up for it with her voice.
- Kim Chaewon is absoloutely perfect for this. Such a princess. I wish her rap part were longer tho, haha.

Team I Am:
- I feel the producers really dropped the ball on this one. The song didn't feel cute at all, and considering the other songs this episode, a more sexy approach would've been better.
- Ahn Yujin and Choi Rena both did really well showing their own charms.
- The way the performance was edited made it feels Huh Yunjin was center.

Interlude: Chiba Erii pumped up the jam again!! XD

Team Rollin' Rollin'
- Jang Won Young always makes me smile when she's on stage. I think that's what makes her a great idol. To be this good at her age, she's a legend in the making.
- Fun song, fun performance. Good stuff.

Team Rumor
- This song isn't really my preferred style so that doesn't help.
- The stockings make their outfits overly slutty. I don't like it.
- This goes for more of the performances this ep, but the audio felt really off.

Team Let's Meet Again
- This song is really generic, haha.
- Wang Yiren did alright.
- I felt Kang Hyewon was on autopilot, or rather, it was like she was focusing on her part and forgot about the rest of the performance before it.

As far as the team ranking goes, I feel it was pretty spot on this time!

As far as my Top 12 picks, it's more or less the same.  :nervous

It's almost over, damn. Now with 2-pick becoming 1-pick, the final line-up is really hard to predict again, all bets are off (only Sakura I'm 100% sure of, and a few I'm pretty sure of), but here's my final team AND some thoughts on the rest of the top 20 as well:


Final team roster

1
=
Choi Yena (Yuehua, 1999, age 18) #16

Yena continues to be the best. Fingers crossed, she's fun and unique, so could feasibly make top 12.
2
=
Miu Shitao (AKB48, 2001, age 17) #10

Beautiful countryside girl had little screentime, few moments, but could have a firm hold on a good portion of the male viewers to get her through.
3
=
Ahn Yujin (Starship, 2003, age 14-15) #14

The full package. In danger because of not completely adhering to the good little idol ideals, but might have the fanbase to put her through in 1-pick.
4
+1
Nako Yabuki (HKT48, 2001, age 17) #9

Nako is smol and ALWAYS stands out even if she's not doing anything, so 1-pick should put her through.
5
+6
Lee Chaeyeon (WM, 2000, age 17) #3

Chaeyeon has a nice fanbase and her screentime has been nothing but positive, so she should make the top 12.
6
+1
Han Chowon (Cube, 2002, age 15) #13

Dark horse Chowon got some nice moments with her non-existent vocal lines and is a serious candidate for the final group.
7
-1
Park Haeyoon (FNC, 1996, age 21-22) #20

Angel leader is in real danger here, she has to battle with Yuri for the main vocal vote scraps, I doubt she'll make it.
8
+2
Hitomi Honda (AKB48, 2001, age 16) #11

Chubby Bunny could absolutely make it, although it wouldn't surprise me if she was like #13.
9
=
Miru Shiroma (NMB48, 1997, age 20) #8

Always a live audience favorite, Miru making it to the final group is feasible, but also might be unlikely. It's kinda hard to tell.
10
-2
Miyu Takeuchi (AKB48, 1996, age 22) #6

Miyu has been interesting but she never really wowed me with anything. In jeopardy again because of the kinda negative screentime she got struggling with the absurd high notes.
11
+1
Jang Wonyoung (Starship, 2004, age 13-14) #7

Wonyoung is such an idol even as a baby that I'd be surprised if she didn't make it.
12
Kwon Eunbi (Woollim, 1995, age 22) #12

Dance dynamo Eunbi gets the spot Giraffe vacated (fuck you knetz, btw). Always steady position within the top 12, surprisingly might now be in danger of not making it.



13-20

13
Jo Yuri (Stone Music, 2001, age 16) #18

Will probably fight with Haeyoon for the vocal voters... she needs to do something magical in the final to make it to the top 12.
14
Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48, 1998, age 20) #1

The queen of looking good and being mediocre at everything else. Will absolutely make it, could feasibly win center just with her fanbase alone.
15
Kim Chaewon (Woollim, 2000, age 17-18) #19

Princess of Woollim. Has been slipping again, probably won't make it, her moments have been few and far between.
16
Juri Takahashi (AKB48, 1997, age 20) #17

Never really that bad or that good at anything, Juri has been flying under the radar... but at this point... I doubt she'll make it.
17
Lee Kaeun (Pledis, 1994, age 24) #5

Kaeun is... likeable. And will probably make the final group.
18
Kang Hyewon (8D, 1999, age 19) #4

She's great at looking bewildered and nothing else. Might make it with storyline power.
19
Kim Minju (Urban Works, 2001, age 16-17) #15

Looks great and that's about it. Might make it on that alone.
20
Miho Miyazaki (AKB48, 1993, age 25) #2

She's a foreigner who's great at Korean, loves Korea and is not the worst singer. And that might just be enough.


--

Good luck to everyone, their teams and their favorites. Remember it's not the end for the "losers"... for example during season 1, Jeon Soyeon didn't make the final team but went on to appear on Unpretty Rapstar and is currently leading Kpop's most popular rookie group (G)I-DLE.

Can't wait.

FINAL TOP 12

02 - 316,105 - Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48) -1
03 - 294,734 - Jo Yuri (Stone Music) +15
04 - 285,385 - Choi Yena (Yuehua) +12

11 - 227,061 - Kim Minju (Urban Works) +4
12 - 221,273 - Lee Chaeyeon (WM) -9


Final group name: IZONE



What an absolutely crazy finale. When Yena got #4 I thought I heard wrong, the top 12 was so crazy. 1-pick changed EVERYTHING. And YURI at #3? wow. Only the top 2 was predictable.

I'm pretty happy with the top 12, only sad about Miu not making it. From my team, I got 1, 3, 4, 5, 8, 11, 12 into the final group, so 4 of top 5 and stuff like that. Pretty content.

And the final group is really solid and well-rounded! It has great vocals, dancers, variety peeps, visuals. Only three Japanese girls which is a tiny bit surprising but yeah.

I feel like Miu really got shafted screentime-wise so she was fighting an uphill battle. And all the Korean males must have been doing something else today...

Finale performances (sans the ballad)


--

Interesting thing I realized after the finale regarding Jo Yuri and Choi Yena placing so high...

In the previous eliminations, both Stone Music and Yuehua lost 2 candidates with a total of ~200,000 (2-pick) votes. That has to have helped both Yuri and Yena a lot, even if I think they still would've made it. No other candidate really had a similar situation (well, maybe Kaeun to small extent with Giraffe going home with less than 100k votes, but I suspect everyone was pairing them to begin with).

Also, since only 2 Japanese girls went home in the previous elimination, it got even harder for the remaining 8, as it's very likely that many voters picked similar girls or girls from the same company for their 2-picks and now suddenly only had one vote to cast. That probably explains (to an extent) why only 3 Japanese girls made it to the final group.

--

Let's look at the top 12:

Jang Wonyoung - all-around decent, good dancer, great visual
Sakura Miyawaki - visuals, stage presence, decent enough performer
Jo Yuri - main vocal, main vocal, main vocal, yuri's pretty great
Choi Yena - where to begin? Hilarious and stellar all-around performer. Fun and unique.
Ahn Yujin - all-rounder, good or great at pretty much everything, dorky, actual model
Nako Yabuki - smol, cute, competent performer
Kwon Eunbi - leader, great dancer
Kang Hyewon - probably good for some humorous (intentional or not) moments, hope she can keep up with the rest and make an actual effort
Hitomi Honda - super cute, cheeks full of love, great dancer
Kim Chaewon - princess, competent performer
Kim Minju - visual power, not completely hopeless otherwise
Lee Chaeyeon - amazing dancer, good vocalist, dorky personality

All-in-all pretty much covers everything, only a (serious) rapper is missing (no, Hyewon doesn't count lmao) but it seems Yena & Eunbi can at least make an effort at it, if not, no big loss really. Rappers in idol groups are not that necessary really.

So I'm pretty happy! I'd make some changes but I've learned it's really difficult to get everything exactly how you like it haha. Anyway, bring on some releases. :yep:

--

Now a bit about the peeps who didn't make it:

Han Chowon - I wanted Chowon in (at #6) so I'm a bit sad for her... she's still young though, she'll be back for sure.
Lee Kaeun - I don't think anyone disliked Kaeun, but I also don't think she was the #1 favorite of that many people either. She was kind, caring, capable... and somewhat invisible.
Miho Miyazaki - Well, hope she got something out of the experience, she's into Korean things but I never thought she'd fit in this group or offer that much to it.
Juri Takahashi - As I expected, she didn't quite make it. I think she would have been fine in this group, however.
Miyu Takeuchi - Miyu was always a wildcard, too different... which kinda drew me to her in the first place. She never truly shined on the show either, not that mnet gave her that many chances to do so.
Miu Shitao - This one hurts, of course, being my #2 pick. Mnet shafted her screentime-wise pretty hard, almost all of her success was viral and outside the actual episodes. Hope she can do some modeling and maybe get some kinda dance-unit in Japan or something.
Park Haeyoon - Well, she was no match for Yuri, who even got all those Stone Music votes and really made a gap. Haeyoon should be fine though, I can see her singing ballads on OST's and anything of the like, the show was a great showcase for her talents.
Miru Shiroma - Live audience favorite, but quite invisible on the show. Not quite sure how much she wanted to be there either, sad we won't be getting Miru+Wonyoung interactions.

Yup, ain't the end of the road, I hope at least. Good luck to them all.  :thumbup

The Chinese version of this show ended up with Rocket Girls 101, so with that in mind I feel IZ*ONE is a great name.  :lol:

Let me just check this real quick...

:new 11. Miyawaki Sakura
:new 12. Lee Gaeun

01. Kim Chaewon --> #10
02. Jang Won Young --> #01
03. Yabuki Nako --> #06
04. Jo Yuri --> #03
05. Kang Hyewon --> #08

And honestly, Lee Gaeun was a bit of a filler in that list, so I got 9 out of 11 picks in!

What are the odds. I should become a producer of cute girl groups.  :lol:

I'll write down some final thoughts later, but I pretty much agree with Stryfe's breakdown.

Remember my brutally honest first impressions? Let's see how this turned out...  :nervous


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

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

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

Jo Yuri
- There is a lot to like here!

Choi Yena
- Balancing between funny and hella annoying

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

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 Chaewon
- What an angel

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

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.

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

- Jang Won Young: Considering her age and how eloquent she is, it feels like she really practiced fixed expressions and polite answers. I guess that's why she comes across too mature for her age.
- Ahn Yujin: It took me a long time before I started to see her charms. I think she might overcompensate at times when she feels insecure.
- Kim Minju as a wacky character? I don't see that anymore, haha. Visuals and innocent charm for the win.
- Jo Yuri: I was right! It's easy to forget how young she when she has a voice like that. She doesn't stand out that much in a group from a visual point of view, but I'm glad people acknowledge her talent.
- Choi Yena: The balance has definitely shifted to funny. She's a good kid who's very entertaining.
- Lee Chaeyeon: Still not my type, but I feel she does fit this group. Hopefully she can aid the others in improving their dancing skills.
- Kang Hyewon: Her appearance is definitely her main appeal. I saw some stats she's most popular with men in their 40s and 50s.
- Kwon Eunbi: Still feels like a veteran, so it was great to see how nervous she was during the guerrilla event in Japan. She could be a great leader.
- Kim Chaewon: From model trainee to princess of Woollim. She didn't get much that screentime, but one second is enough to make you fall for her.
- Yabuki Nako: She proved she doesn't need Miku to be great. It's easy to find things to like about her.
- Miyawaki Sakura: She has a certain charm that makes her very likable. I feel she's done all she can within 48G, so I hope this is the next big step in her career.
- Honda Hitomi: Cute singing voice which fits with the cute style Kpop songs. I still feel like I don't know her at all, so should be fun to see more of her.
