Vids:



Debut MV, Dream Girls.





Crush was a song the top 22 performed in the finals. A backstage sort of "MV" was released as a treat to the fans a few days after the show, re-recorded with the top 11.

This is actually the second version. The first one had a lot more Yeonjung (#11) and a lot less Yoojung (#3) among other things, so people complained, coz that's what people do. Guess it's more balanced now, even if they went a little crazy with editing Yeonjung almost completely out.

Subbed Clips: Linz youtube channel




Produce 101 was one of my favorite idol-related things in a long time. On top of that, most of my favorites during the show made it into the final group. The show was a huge success and produced a highly visual and competent girl group. Two great vocals and several good ones, some great dancers, a couple of decent rappers, some weirdos, a ton of different personalities... it's all there. The only real bummer is that this isn't permanent, but at least it's a taste of the future girlgroups from various agencies.

The girls recently moved into a dorm and are now filming another reality show while preparing for the May debut with a new song. They're also busy with filming a constant stream of commercials etc. so there should be new stuff rolling in soon again.

Now that the group is decided on I'm all confused what to do with it like, I'm supposed to be able to pick a favourite here? And what now? :lol: This is why girl groups usually have 'supporting members', like the level of this group is so nuts. It has about 57 members who could be the visual, the dancer, the rapper, the main vocal, or just a generally super charismatic performer. Nobody is the "weak link" here, and certainly not Sohye even if she lacks in skills.

So I'll just wait it out for now!

Dead. :bow:








More photoshoot stuffs. Yoojung's just too damn cute with that fluffy hair.






Damn, the girls are being worked harrrd. I still hope they'll do Weekly Idol after they start promoting.




Nobody is the "weak link" here, and certainly not Sohye even if she lacks in skills.

My favorite kind of problem, I have to say. My "problem" is similar: the group's size. Eleven is quite a lot, and even if they showed some epic stages in the final, I generally much prefer a smaller group performance-wise. There's much less margin for error and a large group is much harder to choreograph to perform tightly.

But at least everyone stands out and has had their fair share of limelight, so even in big performances there's something to look at in repeated viewings.

Some pics from what is apparently the MV shoot. Tennis! For a moment I thought the outfits and the bows especially would indicate a cute concept, but since "Unique" concept won the vote, the song will probably be something in the vein of Yum-Yum. At least I hope so... the alternative is not too appealing. Still not sure about that cutesy pose, though. Here's hoping the concept is anything but cutesy. I didn't sign up for that haha. Although I would accept something similar to Twinkle-Twinkle/Don't Flirt era Girl's Day, I suppose.






More photoshooting, not sure what this is for... maybe also for the MV.






Sejeong and Sohye listening to BEG Jea's (who was their singing teacher on P101) new song. There was a subbed version for this but it vanished... basically Sohye only realizes later that it's actually Jea singing and Sejeong goes all lulz. Love how expressive these two are, haha.






Speaking of expressions, fan art... here's some Stone Buddha. :lol:






And some Penguin Queen. More fan art later...






...and finally some giant scans of the P101 Top 22 photoshoot. Aw, I miss some of them already.

Here's another pic from the MV shoot. Somi's not mysteriously mssing, her shadow can be seen on the left.

Next Friday, 23:00 KST (p101 slot) Mnet will air the first part of their new reality show, Stand By IOI, which will follow IOI's activities and preparation for their May debut. Second part will air one week after that.

Also, the group now has an official facebook and an official instagram account.







The girls had a bit of a guerrilla appearance today... they split in two teams and served coffee for fans. There's a gazillion photos naturally, here's some:












Yoojung is taking it very seriously.

There's a ton of fancams as well from the event, here's a great one of Team Sangan (Sejeong, Yoojung, Chaeyeon, Doyeon, Mina, Yeonjung)





And here's an alright one of Team Yongsan (Somi, Chungha, Sohye, Jieqiong, Nayoung).








Some biting to cap it off. :P

Oh man these are just glorious...  :rofl:


Most of these are self-explanatory, but... Sohye's refers to the bogus rumours of her threatening to stab people with a pencil and Doyeon's refers to her inability to remember her own name during the Fantagio intro:D

Ahhh.. there's nothing like getting drunk after dance practice. Pimp that soju, gurls.




The making of. Kinda funny to have three Fingertips girls dancing to Yum-Yum, but makes sense. There's also separate cm's for the three girls, guess what Nayoung's is like....








More pics. Latter two apparently for Hi Korean brand a KBS show "Hello, Our Native Language".






Mnet released a teaser of the IOI reality show but promptly removed the vid... of course peeps managed to download it, here's one with subs.





Gangnam dorm looks decent enough.

Official upload of the Stand by IOI preview. It's REALLY subtly different, not sure why tho, nothing seemed weird about the scenes replaced.

The girls also filmed their Sugarman appearance at JTBC, here's a 12 minute stream vid of their dressing room.






Somi's Haneul Bori Ice Sparkling water commercial. IIRC they had a vote in the vein of P101 and Somi came in first, so she gets a solo cm. There'll be more versions tho, so who knows if others get them too.






      

Some more Etude House pics from 1st Look.





More assorted pics. There's even more but goddamnit there's always new shit rolling in while I'm making a post... stay tuned.

More from 1st Look... would love all of these in larger size.










http://www.marieclairekorea.com/2016/04/celebrity/순수의-힘-i-o-i-아이오아이

Marie Claire article and a pictorial with lovely big HQ images.

Team PD101 also translated the articles in Marie Claire magazine with included some insightful comments from all of the girls.

Stand by IOI first ep aired and it was extremely dork-tastic. Loved it. Mnet youtube has clips, and dailymotion has the whole raw. Team PD101 is subbing this as well.






Star1 photoshoot, looking too damn good.






Looks like only top 3 got their own commercial, here's one for the whole group tho.

Preview for Sugarman, including a performance (which is not their debut song, but a cover of something). Full ep airs on Tuesday, 26th.








Sugarman dressing room action... Somi cam with edits + 12 minutes of unedited stream. Both with subs. Both with dorks.






Also a preview of Sejeong from her new weekly show, Welcome Show, which, uh, I don't really know what it's about. But she's a natural. :love:

I watched the whole "Welcome Show" stream with Sejeong... it was 3 hours and mostly just bruuutally boring. Sejeong spent almost all of the time sitting quietly next to the stage.

Of course, whenever Sejeong got screentime, it was like the sun shining into a dark, dismal dungeon. Still, I might just go for the God-cuts next time around.






Dammit... I might even watch the whole thing again. I've got it bad. :nervous

Subs for Stand By IOI episode 1 are out on dailymotion.

Interestingly someone beat Team PD 101 to it. Subs seem fine and video quality is much better so can't complain, really.

Preview of this Friday's Stand By IOI has more photoshootan'





SK Telecom commercials for everyone are being uploaded, but uh they don't seem to be public, I'll add some links when I'm done watching Sugarman (airing right now)...

2016.5.4 아이오아이(I.O.I) 1st 미니앨범 #Chrysalis 발매!

So first mini-album apparently titled Chrysalis! Meaning the pupa stage of a butterfly. Interesting. Sounds nice though.




Obligatory:

Appearing in a zillion different things... nice outfits here. For sum game.
