Artists under Yuehua are in such a weird position rn. You have Chengxiao and Yibo who were mentors for idol survival shows, Wenhan, Xuanyi, Meiqi, Yixuan and Seungyeon who were/are currently on idol survival shows. The difference in popularity between all the members to the extent that some of them are mentors while other are contestants kind of amazes me.
I’m so pissed about Yuehua’s decision to pull Mei Qi and Xuan Yi from Rocket Girls. It really seems like they used the girls as a marketing ploy to get more focus on WJSN, and while they’re my bias group and Mei Qi is my ult, this shines a really negative light on them all. Seeing Mei Qi recieve so much love and attention after she was ignored for years in Korea was also so gratifying. Other, less popular groups have made it work without members before and there’s still 11 of them. It’s so dumb.
Admin Note: After announcing that Mei Qi and Xuan Yi would not promote with Rocket Girls, Yuehua Entertainment changed their minds and said that they could promote with both. After this opinion was sent in, Cosmic Girls announced their comeback without Mei Qi, Xuan Yi, and Cheng Xiao (who has separate schedules in China).
I could be wrong of course but I dont know why I have a feeling none of the Yuehua trainees are going to be finalists in this year’s Produce too. If one of them does, then I hope it is Yiren. Yena turned out to be like Ahn Yujin and the other one isn’t really that good.
