JYPE's New 'Secret Weapon' Hwang Yeji on The Fan



Hwang Yeji is a trainee at JYPE and recently was brought up a lot during the coverage of Somi's departure from the agency. She's appearing on the new survival show "The Fan".

The shows description: Hottest stars in the industry try to find the next future stars. Stars become the fan of the future stars and try to support them. While competing [against] one another, these future stars have to gather as much fans from the public.

Panel includes BoA, Yu HuiYeol, Lee Sungmin, and Kim Eana

interesting song choice and performance...is this a hint at the new JYP gg concept?

twice did performances with similar concepts during sixteen so i doubt this is foreshadowing anything about the next gg's concept... i would not object to it being like this though.
the editing seems to hype her up a bit much. the panelists seem mildly impressed, as am i. she's pretty and a good dancer

lol @ all the judges overreacting to this basic ass performance.

That looked like Junho, and I did not need to see Junho acting like he was getting turned on/orgasmic over an underaged trainee who has likely been in the company fewer years than he's been an idol.

She seems alright though.

same thoughts

He wasn't acting like that at all?? Did you watch the whole bit of him introduce her? He was fanning himself before she was even on stage and he said he was nervous because it was like watching his own debut. (He was also on a survival program.) :\

OP you forgot 2PM's Lee Junho is also on the panel (he's the one who personally introduced her).

anyway nothing about this performance impressed me, she is really pretty but that's like...every female idol who gets into JYPE, lol. it feels really soon for there to be murmurs about their next gg and IMO I don't know if one is needed yet, TWICE are comparably talented and pretty and could handle pretty much any concept, it's just a matter of JYPE allowing them to diversify.

She’s alright. Nothing really stood out as attention grabbing. It seemed as though junho was there because he was asked by the company to do so and wasn’t really sold on her either despite what he said

The editing on this was pffff. The 'oof it's getting hot in here' shirt pulling Junho did had different lights than during the performance so they spliced it in. Mess. You could however see him being (slightly) disappointed in her lmao
She's ok. She has character, but it was just good, not great.

what in the fresh hell was that dance break

she's got a really interesting and intense gaze, i kept looking at her eyes! i wish i could have actually heard her voice, the backing vocals were waaaay too loud for me to be able to always pick out which vocals were her singing live.

dancing was okay, but in this era of kpop, doing the splits isn't impressive anymore (unless you're a dumbass old man with a monkey brain thinking it's okay to want to have sex with this child)

I was going to post the same thing. She really has an interesting gaze. Rest is okay but her eyes were the most memorable thing about her.

She kinda give me Sohee vibe (probably something in her face)
She seems comfortable enough on stage and I'm sure she can improve with appropriate training, but if that's JYP secret weapon they might want to call Loona's dad to get a new weapon deal cause this, although nice, was not impressive




Also how old is this child?

she's a 00 liner

I’m guessing this is just the pre-pre teaser jump off for the new group. She is decent. Smart of them to put one of the potential members out there to garner some attention.
suggestivepeach 6th-Dec-2018 03:02 pm (UTC)

Wow she’s really pretty. Skill-wise I think she’s nothing spectacular but she’s young and has a lot of time to grow and improve. She’ll probs do well in a group.

her face reminds me of ka-eun. it was a pretty basic performance... she can dance, but her voice is meh
accioanime 8th-Dec-2018 02:14 pm (UTC)
same. Definitely the eyes.
annayism 6th-Dec-2018 04:23 pm (UTC)
she's very beautiful, but her performance was aight
mortkero 6th-Dec-2018 07:08 pm (UTC)
I wasn't wowed by her singing or her dancing really.

Not in the way when I saw Chungha do that dance for ioi and she immediately captivated me.

I don't think she would have got an A for produce 101, the judges didn't seem that impressed either?
accioanime 8th-Dec-2018 02:16 pm (UTC)
I get that JYPE be trying to hype someone now that their top trainee left but it's like setting up this poor girl for comparisons and pressure.

Judging her performance as is, her singing isn't that strong and her dancing is pretty good but not a stand out. She is pretty new so she can still work on building her stage presence. I am not falling for the camera work in making it look bigger than it is.

her dance was so meh... she's pretty tho and her voice has promise?
