I dont really mind aegyo, I recognise it as something people in my country dont do and aren’t used to that Korea is used to and like. I’m normally completely neutral about it and wait for it to pass and get to the stuff I want to see but…wanna one’s jihoon made me cringe to the absolute maximum when he genuinely said “goo goo ga ga” on return of superman. The kids just looked at him like he was mad and I lost it
The only time I found those three popular Wanna One members impressive Kang Daniel, Park Jihoon and Ong Seongwoo was when they performed “ Get Ugly ” but that’s it. Not even one of their other performance can top that for me but as a whole group I think they did a good job for “La Dolce Vita”.
I was a fan of Wanna One and liked Jihoon but I was watching one of their vlives and when he was asked if he knew right away that he’ll end up debuting without a doubt after his famous wink, his reaction and response rubbed me the wrong way because it’s obvious he wanted to say yes. It’s nice to see that he was confident in himself but it’s like he didn’t work so hard for the position he is now because he knew he was popular and no matter what he was gonna make it. I guess most of all, what bothers me is the fact it was way before Produce 101 Season 2 even started.
Wanna ones Jihoon is such a precious boy. You could see he really loves his members. I don’t know what will happen to him after wanna one but that he is scared of the time after wanna one just breaks my heart I wish I could assure him a good future so that he’s happy and able to live his dream but I guess that’s not how life works. I will support him until the end because he is the one that always makes me feel better and happy again.
I hate when hotel staff agrees to do something they shouldn’t do just because they’re going to get paid a lot of money.I’m talking about the saesang who bought the key to Park Jihoon’s room with a high price from a hotel staff and sneaked into his room. That staff should have thought of the consequences that could happen and infact the saesang who got in, filmed Jihoon changing his clothes after taking a shower. I noticed the issue becoming worse since they’ve ever arrived in Hong Kong and Swing Ent should do more than writing a statment because that is not gonna stop them. If they would focus more on the situation they could get in contact with these saesangs, even Wannables know their accounts, but they don’t do anything else.
Sometimes I wonder if Park Jihoon and Kang Daniel ever almost had their friendship die because they were basically rivals during Produce 101. This is not to cause any drama because even Jeon Somi and Kim Sejeong admitted their friendship almost died for this same reason. Something else I’d like to add is Park Jihoon does seem like the jealous type and I don’t usually feel like this about that many idols but regardless I know they’re good friends too.
As much as I like Park Jihoon I don’t think he would have gotten this far if it weren’t for his wink, especially knowing how much screen time Mnet gave him, it was hard to notice him. We all know he first got noticed for it, and that Lee Daehwi chose Jihoon to be in his Avengers team because he was really well known as ‘Wink Boy’ which led to Jihoon being more noticed, so clearly none of that would have happened if he didn’t wink. I just have this feeling that Jihoon thought to himself he got this attention for his cute wink so he came up with another cute thing like ‘Nae Maeum Soge Jeojang’ so he doesn’t get forgotten, and in my opinion it didn’t seem like he wanted a cute image in the first place, he just did it for the sake of the show. Nowadays when I see him do ‘aegyo’, it seems too forced. The boy is clever and just got lucky nonetheless.
“Nae mam soge jeojang” saved korea’s 2017– I am kinda in love with it as well.
broduce 101 dissapointed me. some of the more popular winning trainees (jihoon & jinyoung i think) didn’t do much that was memorable to me and didnt stick out in their performances, like the wink kid who is only memorable bc mnet pushed him so much – i didnt notice him in any of his evalutions. there were way more memorable and capable trainess who lost out (eg taehyun, eunki, gunhee, kenta, samuel, youngmin, etc) and i dont get the daniel hype, hes good dancer, but i cant get why hes so loved.
