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.
We're not ready.
Ddd.mp3 I never finished season 2, but I'm back in for this one.
I kinda resent my parents for putting me to school instead of shipping me to Korea to become an idol.
The show is coming this first half of the year.
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.
Boys24 / IN2IT. But they boy group itself just debuted last year so it's still too early to tell.
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.
It was the Top27 who had the opportunity to perform in the Boys24 Theater for a total of 260 shows. After all the votes have been gathered, the final 8 was chosen.
Produce 48 will make a girl group which will debut both in Korea and Japan.
The original concept for Season 3 became what we've known as MixNine (Boys versus Girls). Anyway, say hello to a new girl group before this year ends. They will most likely be against fromis_9 and Loona for the year-end rookie awards.
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't at rumors of DIA girls in another survival show but Eunjin deserves a spot.
And Han Hyeri needs to have a career already!
BUT WHERE'S LEE HAEIN?!?!
I can totally see Korea-Japan war breaking out over this.
Not Somyi possibly on another survival show. I think Jooeun would be more of a hit in P48.
Separate names with a comma.
