The episode was up last Saturday but I was busy lol I hope that Nations Producers are paying attention to the really talented ones instead of sticking with the popular kids who are getting more screentime from MNET. I have a few things to say about this episode, I'll just reserve it for the comments section.

I meant to make a post last week since I didn't see one, but I forgot lmao

All I remember from the episode is Baekjin's group fail, idk why he went to rap when he could have slayed in dancing.

I've had this on draft and wanted to put in YT videos of their team's individual performances but I became busy =) you are welcome to post new episodes in case I get busy again.

I was super disappointed that Baekjin didn't pick dancing. I wanted him to slay.

I haven't watched today's episode yet but if he made it past this round he needs to:

1. Go back to black hair
2. Dance his ass off

I need my breakdancing eye-candy to do well otherwise he is not making it onto the group.

Agreed. And I'm scared to watch the elimination episode. I feel like he's in danger of going home.

I convinced my coworkers to watch this episode with me. They don't follow Kpop, had never seen a Korean survival show or any of the previous episodes of PD101. Just episode 7 with little explanation and they were having the time of their lives. The editing really adds to the story telling and now they are huge fans of "number 25" aka Lee Jin Hyuk.

This episode just further cemented my love for Jinhyuk. He's so genuinely nice, patient and funny. Also, I like that he's Lee Dong wook's pick. He knows what's good XD I'm worried he's gonna be jonghyun 2.0

I found Wonhyuk annoying but fortunately for him, he got the benefit despite not being center. It's too bad they messed up the performance, they were doing well.

Ngl, I don't think Wooseok deserved the vocal benefit. There were so many vocalists who were better, like Yuvin, the twit team, suhwan (he didn't deserve to be last wtf), seungwoo and so on.

Also, I saw that one leak fan cam of To My Youth. Mingyu sounded bad. The wonders of post production.

I prefer when they show the trainees interact and the friendships rather than the drama about who is center.

I hope Yunseong will rise and take the place of ham wonjin.

Noooooo don't give me Jonghyun 2.0! But I hope Jinhyuk gets lots of love for being so helpful. He and Seungyeon are really kind. And yes, Wooseok is good but Yuvin and Suhwan are much better.

Agreed. Esp about Wonhyuk. It doesn’t do much for morale when someone is sulking because they didn't get center (which at this point holds no significance). But that team had absolutely no chemistry from the start, so it was never going to work. Also, yeah Wooseok wasn’t even close to being the best. Yuvins’ voice is great and he does it with ease.
miuratenshi 21st-Jun-2019 09:04 pm (UTC)
Agreed about Wooseok. Twit Team were all stronger vocalists than him.

Lol this is long.

Swalla (Hyeonsu, Yunsol, Taeseung, Minseo, Junseong, Jyunhao): They were entertaining and they did well considering that they had a lot of vocalists on the team! I’m glad that Junseong came in third. I was disappointed that he didn’t end up on a vocal team. I want him to get more attention. RISE HYEONSU! And I’m glad that Yunsol came in second! They were both amazing and worked hard on the choreo.

Barcode (Yuri, Baekjin, Hyuk, Woojin): Yikes. Their team dynamic was awful. I understand that Hyuk is worried because she’s rank 57. But all sulking does is ruin the team. The team had so much tension it was bad. And the performance. Oh no. It was so low energy (though Hyuk was trying to save it) and people forgot their lyrics. The ranking went the way it should have. Kinda. Yuri should have been in third. He forgot less lyrics than Woojin did.

Day By Day (Yuvin, Suhwan, Dohyun, Taeeun, Junho): It was nice but lacked a wow factor. Yuvin sounded beautiful though. I really want him and Suhwan to stay.

Turtle Ship (Jinhyuk, Eugene, Peak, Huijun, Wonjun, Jaewon): Oh Lord. Jinhyuk had to steer the SS Disaster by himself. I get struggling to write raps if you haven’t before, but I can’t believe that no one tried to help with choreo. He needed to yell so they could get their act together. And they did. They had a lot of energy and though you could tell that rapping wasn’t their forte, they did nicely! Jinhyuk was awesome, but Wonjun was good too!

Believer (Dongpyo, Sunho, Yunseong, Donghyun, Kookheon, Dongbin): They slayed! SLAYED. I really want Kookheon to stay. He has great expressions and his concept worked. Dongpyo’s part was great and he didn’t look out of place doing it. Dongbin sounded nice. Everyone had energy and brought their A game. They betta win.

To My Youth (Minkyu, Wooseok, Jinwoo, Sejin, Byungchan): Again it was nice, but it lacked a wow factor.

Results: For the most part I was satisfied with the winners! Hyeonsu winning for the Dance Position made me so happy. Hyuk deserved that win for the Rap Position. However, though I like Wooseok, I feel as though there were better vocalists than him.

But I cheered so much when Jinhyuk won for X Position. 300,000 VOTES. HE IS DEFINITELY MAKING IT PAST THE NEXT ELIMINATION. THANK GOD.

Observations: I honestly think that there needs to be a challenge where they have to perform in front of the general public and fans aren’t admitted. Otherwise the winners of these challenges will continue to be obvious. Popularity definitely won over talent in some of these performances and it’s so damn annoying.

My Current Top 11: Yohan, Jinhyuk, Hangyul, Yuvin, Hyeop, Kookheon, Dongpyo, Hyungjun, Midam, Ziyue, Seungyoun. Though I'm sure I'll have to redo it once I watch the elimination episode.

I gotta add that while I'm not a fan of Dongpyo's cute act  he was trying to pull in the previous episodes (He's more mature than that, and I like his snark but he doesn't show it often) , I think he is a good performer.

it's obvious the production wanted to give him this story line about not fitting, because he does fit in the Boss and Believer concept. Lol He might look young but is facial expressions are good so yeah.

I'm afraid to see who got eliminated this evening but people I wish will survive:


So basically, most of the older guys, the ones who featured, and a couple newbies. Lol
