[ENG SUB] Produce X 101 - Episode 8 Concept Evaluation Song part 1

Click on the image to watch on KSHOW123

Before the Second Ranking Announcement, the trainees are matched into different teams for the Concept Evaluation. Each team will work with a song produced by famous songwriters. However, only the top 30 trainees can perform for the Concept Evaluation.


I'm so happy to see that Seungyeon is receiving lots of love and respect from fellow trainees. He's really talented and such a great kid who brings positive energy to his team. We need more Seungyeon for a brighter world! Also, I think Zico's song is really good along with "U Got It"!

A lot of the songs seem promising (except the cute song lol)

Glad a lot of the trainees I like survived. I want Baekjin or Yuri to revive (if only for his expressions lol).

I wish Wonjin would drop. I don't think he's bad but I don't like his negative attitude some times. Same for Haenami, his antics are not cute. Especially The whole "I don't want to sing" thing last episode.

I don't understand koo jungmo and lee eunsang's hype tbh.

Glad Seungwoo is rising but ya need another good vocalist. At least let Yuvin join him in the line-up.

Some Knetz criticising the trainees who already debuted and calling them second-hand. Well they're the most skilled and entertaining people (with a handful of complete newbies) imo so thank god they're there.

I liked Yunseong's believer performance so I'm rooting for him now. I hope seungyoun will keep on rising. He's such a gem.

I love jinhyuk. That is all. Lol

I don’t get Jungmo or Eunsang’s hype either. I read on Reddit that a lot of voters are teenagers who are looking more at visuals than talent so that may explain it.

Tbh I understand why Jinwoo was so nervous about singing. He’s still going through puberty and he was worried his voice would crack during the performance so he wanted the least amount of lines. I still don’t think he’s ready for debut though.

Agreed about the “second hand” trainees. They have the best skill and stage presence. This group needs them, especially Seungyoun, Seongwoo, and Jinhyuk.

Wow. We only have 30 trainees left. The following are my faves:
- Kim Yohan
- Nam DoHyon
- Son Dong Pyo
- Song Yu Vin
- Cha Jun Ho
- Lee Han Gyul
- Cho Seung Youn
- Kang Hyeon Su

It's hard to choose between Han Seung Woo and Choi Su Hwan.

I always look forward to the concept evaluation every season. This is their song, their own song, the very first they'll ever own as they start this new journey so I always thought its important to do their best. I'm excited coz this season, the songs are all good! I favor Zico and "U Got It" the most but the rest of the songs are really good too!

The fact that I don't know Who half of the people in the top 10 are or why are they there lmao

I'm glad Mingyu is falling in the ranks, he needs training. But at this point even if he falls of top 10 I'm sure he'll make it as the X trainee just because of all the votes he already got.

No to Yuvin falling off the top 10, what are you doing K-Netz???? I hope Hangyul, Kim Hyunbin and Seungyoun do well so they can rise through the ranks. There's no hope for Baekjin, I doubt he'll make it back :(

I love how simple/chill MBK guys are lol Dohyun's being like calm down, you will be called later and Hangyul's "he's sexy?congratulations"/"I have no money". It's truly refreshing after all the cute/"charismatic" act some trainees try to force aroud lmao Hangyul NEED to move up more, I want them to debut together aka be as far as possible from KKS grip...

Kookheon continue to be paid dust, what's new... At this point all my faves made it, but are second/thrid ten, so all I can hope for is some JBJesque thing, but also doubt it:(

I don't even know like half of top 10, I can't tell all those kids apart, this season truly sucks on so many levels, thank gods for MBk combo and Myteen's duo lol

Pretty Girl Rehearsal: The vocals. Lord. They’re kind of doomed in that regard. I’m glad that Minhee gets to shine as Main Vocalist though, since I was sad that he wasn’t Center after repeated attempts.

Move Rehearsal: This is such a powerhouse team and I will be so sad to see any of them go. I love how all of them wanted to be Center, and how Seungyoun was trying to be encouraging so that the injured trainees wouldn’t lose hope. He is amazing. Please let him make it into the Top 11.

Super Special Girl Rehearsal: It really bothers me that the FINALLY decided to give the lower ranked trainees (Sungyeon and Heejun) screentime when they’re about to be eliminated. They should have done that earlier.

U Got It Rehearsal: I'm so confused by that rehearsal. Every single team has been voting to pick center since the beginning of the show, but all of a sudden Kwon Jaeseung (the Trainer) finds an issue with it, and Eunsang (who lost the center vote) ends up being recommended as center? This felt like a PD edit for Eunsang, and it reminded me of how Kaeun got cheated as I Am's center because everyone decided that the song was "cute" instead of "girl crush" and Yujin magically fit better.

Monday to Sunday Rehearsal: I felt so bad for them. It’s hard to practice when you’re certain that you’re going home. And Tony was the only one who survived elimination.

Elimination: The only two people in my Top 11 that didn't make it were Midam and ZiYue. I was so surprised and relieved that Hyeop pulled through because I thought he and all of Twit team (minus Eunsang) were goners for sure. He has a lot of talent, and I can’t wait to see him show it off during the Concept Challenge, regardless of what team he’s on. The other people in my Top 11 are Kookheon, Seungyoun, Hangyul, Yuvin, Dongpyo, Hyungjun, Yohan, and Jinhyuk. It'll probably switch around again once the Concept Challenge is over.

Though I'm sad for Minkyu because I know he tries his best, I'm relieved he's dropping out of the Top 11. He's a great kid, but he's just not ready to debut. I'm sure he will be after some more training with Jellyfish. I also still don't understand the appeal of Eunsang, Jungmo, Sejin, Junho, Jinwoo, Tony, and a few other fan favorites who keep sticking around/ranking high. Maybe the concept challenge will finally show their charm.

OMG the X Plot Twist: Whoever comes back is probably going to be someone ranked 31-35. But still. I really want it to be Junseong, Baekjin, Midam, Yunsol, or Ziyue (I know his dancing is supbar but I love his voice and I think he just needed more confidence).

This Top 11 is going to be a vocal disaster. I need the Pick 2 to shake things up dramatically.

I don't know the groups from the already debuted trainees and were checking them out and stumbled on this:

So he's the best at everything basically. What can't he do at this point? Lol

Man this ranking is so unpredictable, but some of the best trainees are climbing up and I’m so here for it. I need Seungyeon, Byungchan, Hangyul, and Yuvin to make it into the top 10. I love my son Hyungjun so I’m glad he’s almost guaranteed to debut at this point. I don’t want anymore starship to join the final lineup so the other 4 can at least promote together as a group +/- other baby trainees. I can deal with Jungmo, Eunsang, Jinwoo dropping out, and I’m conflicted about Mingyu bc he could improve like Guanlin and prove his worth. They have 5 years together, soooooo. Jinhyuk’s 2nd rank is precarious bc he might not get the benefit this time, and that would put him at a huge disadvantage if he falls out of the top 10 without being able to use the X position as backup. Anyways, I’m ready for Move It team to snap and show everything they’ve got.
gigabytexx 23rd-Jun-2019 06:27 pm (UTC)
Ahhh I only want Seungyoun to redebut!!
Also Yuvin is my favorite as well.

Mingyu eventho he's useless, at least he's handsome. I love visuals lol. Wooseok is good looking as well (in which he sometimes reminds me a lot of Li wenhan) but he seems like a brat, idk why. Something doesn't sit well with me.
babyjenkski 23rd-Jun-2019 09:26 pm (UTC)
Oohhhh same feels about Wooseok! I thought I was just feeling bad towards him coz he got top spot for vocals last time when I felt that others deserved it but He got this aura I'm not really fond of. It can just be how his screentime is edited. I dont know really.
gigabytexx 24th-Jun-2019 05:06 pm (UTC)
Haha probably about his screentime edit!
I just have this feeling about him that, he looks like those idols who looked sweet & lovable on camera but then one day caught in a violent scandal LOL
babyjenkski 24th-Jun-2019 09:21 pm (UTC)
OK I just got reminded that he's the kid who took a break from Up10tion's promotion before. He goes by the name "Wooshin" and became the target of criticism when some viewers said that he appeared to place his hand on his “The Show” co-host Jeon Somi’s chest area. And I remember one vlive where knetz were posting comments that he's some sort of perv where you can see his face changing from a happy kid to suddenly moving towards the back.
gigabytexx 25th-Jun-2019 05:46 am (UTC)
Ok i don't like wooseok that much to actually digging whether this is true or not, but in the mean time he's cancelled to me lol
greasetastic_x 23rd-Jun-2019 06:27 pm (UTC)
idk man I'm really just not feeling this season for some reason. More than any other season I look at the trainees and go "I totally see why you're not in a group yet" The top 10 is so meh

I'm fine with Jinhyuk's position at #2 though for the episode. He deserves it after the crap his team put him through and all of the work he did for them.

I hope that after the show that some mid-sized company snatches the individual trainees up. Choi Su Hwan needs to debut somewhere. he's too good to be tossed aside because he's short
annayism 23rd-Jun-2019 06:56 pm (UTC)
i mean with this contract being 5 years i get that companies chose to send some of their lesser talented trainees here so there's room for improvement. my faves so far/who i think will do semi-well debuting now:

sihoon (i know his ranking has been low but i hope he pulls thru!!)
