With how popular Iz*one is in both Korea and Japan, and getting to know all the final members, I’m glad that international fans were unable to vote, both because Jo Yuri and Kim Chaewon would never make it in otherwise, and that they would definitely be nowhere near as successful as they would be right now in Korea and Japan. (Japanese fans mainly had Koreans + Sakura on their lineup wishlist, as Japanese Kpop fans hate AKB and vice versa)
A little miffed at the fact that people are either constantly hating on Wonyoung because of salt, or do nothing about the hate, yet whenever Somi has any shred of negativity against her, even mild criticism, people constantly whine about why they kept ripping on a child, even though Wonyoung was younger in P48 than Somi was in Sixteen and the fact that Somi’s eighteen now and has been in the industry for a while. She’s not the same 14-year-old on Sixteen/Produce101 anymore, and she herself wanted an image change. There’s a reason why she left JYP for YG. Not saying Somi deserves hate, but I’m annoyed at the difference of treatment compared to Wonyoung.
I cant bring myself to watch the final episode of Produce 48 because I just can’t get behind the final lineup.
Iz*one has the most amazing concept out of all GG’s at the moment. Their company and stylists are doing an incredible job.
Idols with chubby cheeks are the cutest, like Gfriend’s Umji, Iz*one’s Hitomi and Stray kids’ Han. I don’t understand why people think it’s a negative trait.
I think Jang wonyoung is really smart. Having great marks and performing at the same time is amazing. Also her English is pretty good. Maybe if she practiced more and widened her vocabulary she could almost be fluent. Her accent is great.
I’m glad Minju was the big talking point of the Violeta comeback. Almost everybody, including myself, had doubts when it was announced she would debut, but she’s really proved herself in all areas. I hope she will be able to shine just as much in future IZ*ONE comebacks.
I wish Chaewon got more attention in IZ*ONE. She’s the complete package.
I’m not one to cry a lot but during Produce 48 final episode when Sakura was asked if she had a person she was thinking about at the moment and she said Chaeyeon, thanked her and said she hopes they debut together, I nearly cried my eyes out.
