Upcoming girl group survival shows: Mnet's Queendom and tvN's V-1

Girl group members will compete for the title of “vocal queen” on tvN’s “V-1.”

On July 12, the upcoming girl group vocal survival show unveiled its voting website.

The 24 participants are: DIA’s Huihyeon, APRIL’s Chaewon, gugudan’s Nayoung, HashTag’s Kim Da Jeong, GWSN’s Lena, SONAMOO’s Minjae, Cherry Bullet’s Bora, GWSN’s Seoryoung, HashTag’s Seungmin, PinkFantasy’s SeeA, DreamCatcher’s Siyeon, WJSN’s Yoo Yeonjung, DreamCatcher’s Yoohyeon, APRIL’s Chaekyung, DIA’s Eunchae, APRIL’s Jinsol, Venus’s Jeong Da Kyung, DIA’s Jueun, Weki Meki’s Sooyeon, Weki Meki’s Choi Yoojung, Z-Girls’s Carlyn, GeeGu’s Taera, SONAMOO’s High.D, and Cherry Bullet’s Haeyoon.

These 24 contestants were chosen out of a total of 86 applicants. 12 girl group members will be chosen to compete in the final round as a result of online votes and judges’ evaluations using the videos they submitted of their rap and singing skills.

Producing director Park Sang Hyuk said, “Out of many girl group members, there are many vocalists with outstanding skills outside of their performances on stage. I trust that the viewers will do a good job in choosing 12 contestants for the final round out of the 24 who were chosen for the first round. Please look forward to the competition that will air during the Chuseok holiday.”

In the teaser, the show introduced the 24 contestants from 14 girl groups along with instructions to watch their videos and vote for the best vocalist for 12 days starting July 12.

no idea what queendom is even supposed to prove as these groups don't even have beef afaik and overlap happens all the time now because the market is so saturated.

Aurora and Omona did it first

That's quite a nice line up though

‘I trust that the viewers will do a good job in choosing 12 contestants for the final round out of the 24 who were chosen for the first round.’

Fucking liar

But ngl this sounds interesting, I’ll check it out. I gotta support my girls participating lol

Edit - totally had reading failure lmao I thought this was the same show, I’m more interested in v-1 but I’m interested in Queendom though i don’t get it, I’m into the new songs coming out of it though

I'm not sure I can even conceive of how it would happen, but I wish they would put together a show where they had challenges and mixed up groups and stuff, but no eliminations, and like people won, but not real winning/losing. Like maybe losers had to make dinner and do dishes. So we had teams to root for but also it fostered an everybody winning thing.

but at least this is girl group focused, so I'm happy about that.

Idk, doing menial tasks for everyone bc the public didn't like my performance sound more potentially humiliating than just getting eliminated lol

They could do something where the competing idols vote instead, votes are anonymous and you can't vote for your own group. It'd be cool to see idols choose who they think is the best among them

works for me, voting blind for each other could be really interesting.

Don’t get the point of Queendom. Is there even a point? Or is it literally just groups releasing on the same day? I’ll probably tune in for v-1. Kind of surprised to see Yeonjungs name. Is this why she isn’t participating in the ioi reunion?
nekokonneko 22nd-Jul-2019 09:33 pm (UTC)
yoojung is doing this too, so i doubt it. i think she was just put off by how she was treated on the show
weneedmedicine 22nd-Jul-2019 09:49 pm (UTC)
Whoops kind of glanced over yoojungs name!
lil_poisonfrog 22nd-Jul-2019 09:41 pm (UTC)
Do we know how long ago she agreed to this show? It could've been before talks of the reunion started.
weneedmedicine 22nd-Jul-2019 10:03 pm (UTC)
No clue 🤷🏾‍♀️ Just thought this might be the reason she’s too busy to participate. Either way, it’s her choice so no biggie.

I'm tentatively excited for Queendom and idg why everyone's being so negative about it. The entire career of an idol is one ruthless competition; I don't think they are so fragile that they can't handle this. All of the competing groups have "made it" so they have nothing to lose really, like I don't see ppl leaving fandoms over this.

Plus there's so much potential for cute interactions between groups and amazing performances! I'm sure Mnet will try to start drama, but again, I don't see it causing long-term trouble for the idols. The fans are the ones who get worked up lol. If anything this could bring the somewhat less popular groups more exposure.

Now I kinda agree that Mamamoo could wipe the floor with everyone lmao. But we don't know yet how much dance will factor in, and they're weaker in that area. I also think Soyeon and Mimi are better rappers than Moonbyul, so...

of course they can handle the competition, but I'm sure those tough women can handle a lot of things in addition to competition.

I trust that the viewers will do a good job in choosing 12 contestants for the final round out of the 24 who were chosen for the first round.

lol okay

aoa AND lovelyz AND oh my girl AND idle AND bom?! what a treat for me
lil_poisonfrog 23rd-Jul-2019 04:24 am (UTC)
Lol right??? I'm over here excited AOA actually has a group schedule this year and isn't on "extended hiatus" and ppl wanna bitch instead lmao
benihime99 23rd-Jul-2019 05:16 am (UTC)
Most people don't get the concept because it's confusing and, there's little explanation around it so far
I'm not sure why you're calling that "bitching"
Unless you're talking about other platform?
lil_poisonfrog 23rd-Jul-2019 05:24 am (UTC)
I'm talking mostly about r/kpop but I'm sure it's the same on twitter too. Like ppl straight up mad/sad their faves are participating.

I've yet to see a good reason for all the panic except "fanwars" and like...why should the rest of us miss out on seeing our fave groups interacting/getting exposure bc some assholes wanna act stupid on the Internet? I hate that this is what stan culture has done.

Esp bc longtime Kpop fans are always lamenting the old variety shows where popular groups interacted with each other, and unless this is completely different from all of the other music competition shows, it will have that
benihime99 23rd-Jul-2019 07:11 am (UTC)
r/kpop is a place wehre people complain about their fave having a comeback, lol
so it's not exactly the place I'dgo to to see positive comment about... anything really, and twitter is pretty much the same
dior_chic 23rd-Jul-2019 01:13 pm (UTC)
Yea queendom’s lineup sounds amazing (minus mamamoo as I don’t follow them)
dull_and_wicked 23rd-Jul-2019 04:54 am (UTC)
jelpi's making nayoung go thru this nonsense (again!) when they finally let her out of the basement to start booking musical gigs and make some money? i can't with them
gathyou 23rd-Jul-2019 06:07 am (UTC)
It has the potential to be really messy by involving fandoms so I hope it's all in good spirit and the girls stay supportive of each others throughout the competition.
This said, I'm excited!!! I like many singers on this list and I love the focus on female idols. New songs from six groups/Bom (lol Bom being a whole team by herself I love it!!!) at the same time + a ton of vocal covers? Sign me up!
gdithero 23rd-Jul-2019 08:11 am (UTC)
yikes queendom sounds hella stressful if you're a fan of one of the groups.

Sonamoo in V-1????? pls give these girls a comeback
kyokomurasaki 24th-Jul-2019 09:48 pm (UTC)
