The Produce thread have quite stood on their own here, so the suffering continues!
Coming this 2018!
Are there even enough trainees to do this? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN
Every Korean citizen is now required to join an agency at age 8.
Ddd.mp3 I never finished season 2, but I'm back in for this one.
This season will be just girls right?
Has there ever been a successful group like AK48 with the same theatre/election-style system in Korea? It seems like an odd venture to pursue.
I'm surprised there wasn't an uproar over using Japanese format (well, if there are potentila for money national pride is irrelevant) and didn't the flop of THE BOYS24 teach them anything?
I think they'll Koreanize the format. It'll be just 48 girls in standard idol group for like a year and then that's it.
But didn't they cut it down to 8 members who are permanent as opposed to what I believe AK48 does where the lineup changes each release?
That was always the end game for this project. Prior to that they did shows as 24 members for few days a week in theater. The whole thing was complicated.
This is just a rumor going around Pann, but apparently this is some of the cast and the comments are already a jingoistic mess because of all the Japanese contestants ddd.
Some of the notable names in the Korean list are:
Hina from SM (?!?!?!)
Kim Bora from FNC
Han Hyeri from Season 1 (it lists her as a personal trainee, did she escape Star Empire?)
Shin Yeeun from ContentY (visual goddess!)
Ahn Dabi from Maroo (Jihoon's label) + Mixnine
Ahn Yoojin from Starship (the dancer stealing the shine in Sewoon's performances)
Eunjin and Somyi from survival support group D.I.A.
Yena from Yuhua
Bae Eunyoung, Jo Yuri, and Lee Sian from Idol School
Apparently there'll also be a JYP trainee but she isn't in the list. I hope it's true if only for Hyeri coming back for her rightful 11th place spot, but I'm suspect with an SM rookie in there unless she left the company.
I can totally see Korea-Japan war breaking out over this.
Apparently they are moving into the dorms next week and start filming:
The premiere has been pushed to June.
It should be fairly easy to guess who are the participants from the 48Group, since they will start missing handshake events.
I don't expect any of the top girls to be in this though .
Wondering who the National producer representative will be!
This was made for BoA, considering they need to pander to both Koreans and Japanese. I'm intrigued who will be this time around. TVXQ, 2PM?
I thought the Japanese girls were all from the AKB franchise?
Can we hope for a SNSD or Kara member... ?
At first I thought you were talking as a contestant and I was so confused dddddddd
I could see a SNSD member chosen as a National producer representative teebs. Seohyun would be great or Sooyoung? I think she has experience hosting. A KARA member, hmmm not so sure.
Certainly not Tiffany.
Park Gyuri for National Producer Representative! I can't wait to watch her tell all of the contestants how much prettier she is than them.
