I am excited for Handong! Hope she rises! Idol Producer is so much better than Produce 101 so I can't wait for it to start.

It will be interesting to see yiren and handong on this show. I wonder if one of the chinese members from g-idle or clc will participate as well. I didn’t expect lisa to be on. Does she know any chinese? Is this YG trying to expand in the chinese market now that their profits are freefalling?

Seems like Yuehua confirmed that someone from their company will paritcipate, but they haven't said yet if it's gonna be trainees or Yiren

ooo interesting. i hope this helps their group with exposure too but i can see the company choosing trainees to create hype for their debut

SIGH I don't think anyone knows/remembers her but Bomi/Zhuofan from the Chinese girl group ACEMAX-RED is rumoured to be on the show too.. she was on The Unit (she was in the Give It To Me team) and got like 0.5 seconds of screentime but I really liked her :((( she's a rapper and a BEAST at dancing and I really hope this is her chance to shine... arrgghhh I really don't want to get invested in a survival show :(((

Good for Handong! It’s a shame I won’t see her next week (aaaaa), but she’s so underused in DC. Time to SHINE bb girl

Lisa's also got Taylor Swift hair, make it stop. And the padding!
lizanka23 16th-Oct-2019 04:11 am (UTC)
do you mean shoulder pads??
daynr 16th-Oct-2019 04:15 am (UTC)
nope, I meant pads under her pants.

There was an omona post discussing padding under idols clothing, often hip, etc., padding for ladies. I'm terrible at seeing it, but something about that Lisa dance clipped looked like padding to me.
lizanka23 16th-Oct-2019 07:11 am (UTC)
ohh i didn't notice. i knew they padded their bras but not other parts. i agree thought the tswift hair is not a good look lol

Ahhh I’m excited for girl trainees! Me and my bff stopped watching the second season bc it just didn’t live up to the first, and it was clear who the winner was gonna be anyways. But with Lisa mentoring (curious to see how she’ll do with the language barrier) other girls, I’ll have to check this season out.

yea, first season was EVERYTHING.

Idol Producer was universally adored for a reason lol. So many memes, so many stan-worthy dudes.

pseudo_shigure 15th-Oct-2019 05:46 pm (UTC)
i'm surprised about a lot of things this season. First, that they pick lisa as mentor, just bc we dont know how her fluency in mandarin. would be interesting to see. And that apparently they do a girl season this time. just bc after idol produce, then they change their name into QCYN, and did male seasons for those first two i thought they strictly will only produce bg lol. also, i thought everglow is doing pretty well. i know they'd still try to get the chinese money but to break up the group seems risky.

oh also apparently yixing wont do this show anymore. and it's rumored that luhan will replace him. biggest surprise tbh.
