Dear Patients and Readers,
This is the first post in a very long time because I and the other admins were very busy for a long period. I was actually planning on writing multiple posts on the subject SIXTEEN but because of my tight schedule I just had no time or energy left to do it. But now that I have some free time I will just spit out my thoughts on the show and my opinions on the members and the final lineup.
For the people who don't know, SIXTEEN is a survival show that has been aired on Mnet. It involves 16 JYP trainees who all want to grab a spot in the new JYP girlgroup TWICE. They will be the successors of groups like Miss A and Wonder Girls.
The sixteen trainees are:
Im Nayeon, 1995
Minatozaki Sana, 1996
Kim Dahyun, 1998
Chou Tzuyu, 1999
Son Chaeyoung, 1999
Jeon Somi, 2001
Park Jiwon, 1998
Hirai Momo, 1996
Kim Eunsuh, 2000
Myoui Mina, 1997
Lee Chaeryeong, 2001
Song Minyoung, 1998
Park Jisoo (Jihyo), 1997
Ahnatchaya Suputhipong (Natty), 2002
Lee Chaeyeon, 2000
Yoo Jungyeon, 1996
The 16 trainees were divided in two groups. The major group and the minor group. The major group had a lot of privileges compared to the minor group. The members in the major group were picked by the JYP training staff. Eventually JYP gives a mission every episode and the members from minor that performed better than the major group got promoted to a major member and people from major would go to minor. Their major necklaces were ripped off of their neck.
Here I will show you all the performances from the show.
MISSION #1 ARE YOU A STAR?
In this mission the members had to show their star quality. It didn't matter what they did.
MISSION #3 1:1 BATTLE
Because the second mission was a photoshoot, the photo's can be seen in the members introduction above. This mission was a mission where the members could challenge each other to a one on one battle to steal their major spots from them.
MISSION #4 GROUP BATTLE
In this mission the trainees were divided in four groups. Minor A, B and Major A, B. They each chose their own song to perform. The two losing teams had to face off with each other again.
MISSION #5 JYP ARTIST MISSION
In this mission they were once again divided in four groups only this time the members had to do a song by an artist from JYP entertainment.
FINAL MISSION: MINOR VS MAJOR
In this mission the minor girls had a battle with the major girls. Jihyo from major helped team minor for this mission because they didn't have enough members.
If there was anything that I did not expect is that the group ended up to be a 9 member girlgroup instead of a 7 member girlgroup. And also Momo (who was eliminated) was also added to the groupat the very end. At first I wasn't a 100% happy with the lineup because tzuyu is not a very good vocal and dahyun is not a very good rapper. I actually think somi would be a better fit, however it is never a bad thing to let them train a little bit longer. The next girlgroup is going to be a very talented one.
My favourite members in TWICE are Nayeon, the J-trinity (Mina, Sana, Momo) and Jihyo. I literally cannot pick a bias. I know this post may be a little bit sloppy and I could have written it better, but right now this is what I can do with the capacity of my brain. Dr. Hallyu need a doctor hahaha.
Nevertheless I hope you enjoyed this post and gained some more interest in JYP's ew girlgroup. Please comment what you thought of this show or the members.
With the official debut of I.O.I. coming up very soon I thought it would be a good idea to look back on some of the performances of produce 101. As you can imagine this post features all the spoilers, so if you have not watched the show yet go watch it no...
Dear patients and readers, In Korea, being polite is very important. This means you have to know how old someone is, what their status is and how their position compares to yours.
Little bit late this year, but better late than never. Here are my favourite Kpop songs of 2018. You might be quite surprised by some of these songs.
2017 has come to an end. Many great songs were released in the past year. Here are my favourites Kpop songs of 2017.
