can someone enlighten me why u-kiss' jun is participating? i mean, u-kiss is doing really well abroad (not in korea, but let's not talk about that too much)
carmine_pink 5th-Feb-2018 02:55 pm (UTC)
That's the exact reason right there: they're not doing well in Korea. I think Jun mentioned during the show how people asked him when he first joined U-KISS why did he want to join a so-called unsuccessful group. He said it was because he likes the group, and he hopes by joining the show he could bring them more recognition.

i can't believe kanto didn't make the top 18 TTTT.TTTTT still!! i'm happy and excited for everyone who did make it, and i hope the live finale goes well!!
msgrottesca 6th-Feb-2018 02:11 am (UTC)
I'm honestly so pissed about it lol he was, imo, the only good rapper on the show (sry Jun but those screamo vocals you keep serving are nagl!!!) alas, just like Wanna One, this was doomed to be a rapper-less group.
chaehocheol 5th-Feb-2018 03:29 pm (UTC)
Jun (ACE) 😔 My bb Chan, get it honey! Idk how to feel about Jason and Donghoon in MIXNINE and now Chan possibly getting into the final lineup here...they’re supposed to be in Toronto in May for a show as a group. How?

Anyways, yay for HOTSHOT!
gigabytexx 5th-Feb-2018 03:50 pm (UTC)
isn't this Hansol dude is in NCT though?
dantethetaco 5th-Feb-2018 05:05 pm (UTC)
He was one of the SMRookies but he left SM last year.
a_suitcase 5th-Feb-2018 06:31 pm (UTC)
Ahh so many of my faves made it through, I was SO relieved Lee Bolim is still here! I have such a soft spot for her. And Semmi and Woohee and Euna Kim and of course Euijinnie who has been doing so well <3. So excited to see what the final 9 will be like.

Sad that only ZN left from laboum and I'm not sure she will make it to top 9. I wish ppl give laboum more positive attention after this!

And I have 0 worry for Jun. Boy is soo talented
blck_ink 5th-Feb-2018 07:49 pm (UTC)
i sometimes watch the performances but i see taemin and hyuna are missing. were they only there for the auditions or am i missing something?
seulgibear 5th-Feb-2018 08:22 pm (UTC)
yes. the actual mentors in the show are jo hyuna, hwang chi yeol, rain and san e
adenar 5th-Feb-2018 07:52 pm (UTC)

It must suck to get the benefit but still be eliminated. I'm fond of all the (female) contestants at this point and am hopeful they continue their careers. I think the only one I'm really sad about is little Anne, she brought such a flair to the show in every scene she was in. I'm also sad Hyosun went. I suppose she outlived the show's desire to use her uniqueness.

I would actually really like it if ZN could rise those few places into the top 9! People haven't been talking about her but she was my favourite in Laboum when i was into them and she's so lovely.

God, all the way from Jungha to Raehwan, it hurt. Especially Jun, i really thought he'd make it. Kanto was such a shocker I didn't even register reading his name for a few minutes.

I'm sad about Rayoon too and I don't hate the kid but I'd rather one of these 5 in the finals than Marco. Same with Dongmyeong although god knows I love that little cheep.

no shade but it's LITERALLY killing me that Junhee and Kanto are gone but Marco is still here lol KILLING ME.
froggster 5th-Feb-2018 10:06 pm (UTC)
Justice for ACE Jun and Kanto
carmine_pink 6th-Feb-2018 12:02 am (UTC)
I'm losing hope for Lee Geon but if JeUp and/or Rockhyun sneak their way into the final 9 I'll be happy, they need a main vocal there.
msgrottesca 6th-Feb-2018 02:13 am (UTC)
I've given up hope for Rockhyun :( ugh. but if JeUp doesn't slither back into the top 9 I will RIOT.
oppameansit 6th-Feb-2018 02:31 am (UTC)
if jiwon slips out of the top nine there is no justice in the world tbh
sowahso 6th-Feb-2018 03:48 am (UTC)
She needs to beat out the lesser Jiwon tbh

I just need my bb Jun (of ukiss) to make it to the final 9, he is quadruple talented (singing, dancing, rap, acting) and has variety skills. He’s tall handsome, social, really nice, humble, respectful, and encouraging. I just love him to pieces. Sad to see some of those who went cause this was my hopes for final 9:

Vocals: Jeup, Rockhyun, Lee Geon
Rap: Kanto, Jun (Ukiss), _____
Dance: HanSeol, Eunji, _____

Honestly they all have the same basic internet trending dance skills and ability. Feeldog gets hyped to heaven and back but imho Jun (ukiss), Chan, Eunji, Seyong, almost every damn contestant can do what he does and some even better. I need the final 9 to have good vocals and a decent rapper cause all of em got dancing covered and the ones that don’t been eliminated.
