Once again, I’m being soooooooo late watching a good show, including “PRODUCE 101 by CJ E&M.” It was aired in February 5th 2016 but I just watched it in April 2016. This is the biggest girl group survival show I’ve ever watched. Remember Somi from Sixteen by JYP survival show? Yeah.. I watched this show because of her. But she didn’t make it to debut in TWICE. Turns out that Somi participated in another survival show, and I’m glad that she can debut this time from this show!!
I’m chuffed to bits when found out that this show is presented by Jang Keun suk! Haha, I thought that he was only an actor. Because I watched his drama “The Rain”. He’s so funny and amazing in this show. The judges and the trainers were Jang Keun suk, JeA Brown Eyed Girls’ alongside Kim Sung-eun as vocal trainer, Kahi and Bae Yoon Jung and the rapper Cheetah in charge of vocal, dance and rap training.
The most interesting thing is, the 101 girls that participated were from different agencies. ASTORY, FM, Kconic, M2, MJ, PLEDIS, STARSHIP, CUBE, LOEN, RedLine, CBJN, JELLYFISH, MBK, JYP, SS, FANTAGIO, and so on. Few of them weren’t under any agency.
All 101 girls were divided in 5 groups based on their skill rank, which is A-F. They were given different colors of training shirt for each group. Group A Pink Shirt, Group B Yellow Shirt, Group C Blue Shirt, Group D Green Shirt, and Group Grey Shirt. My favorite part is all the trainees wore a very cool and pretty grey-white-pink school uniform.
From the entire girls, these are my favourite:
There are 11 episodes, and the elimination is in Episode 5, 8, 10 and 11. The audience would get a chance like a producer, because the chosen members was from the online voting. Usually every evaluation, the 1st rank or the winning team will get privilege for the next episode.
