I started watching Produce X 101 and my brain shortcircuted when I realised that Yu Ri was on Society Game S2. I was like “Wow, oh my gosh, really? The dude who had such a pure heart and was so precious on Society Game S2?”. I was so damn excited and overwhelmed at the same time, all the Society Game feels started coming back to me and I couldn’t think properly for a good few minutes.

I wish Knetz would stop trying to show fake concern for Yuri just because her brother is part of the Molka scandal.
Jo Yuri absolutely deserves her spot in Izone but people would rather scream about rigging and stone music bribery than actually attempting to understand the reasons for her massive rise despite the fact that numerous people have come out and explained it. Why is it that other giant leaps during the show were applauded but Yuri’s is branded as rigged despite the fact that it has a strong precedent to justify it? She never fell out of the top 20, she had consistently positive screen time especially going into the finale, she always did well in live votes, the general public, causal fans, and people who only watched performances and the finale were endeared by her ‘puppy-like cuteness’ and talent, and she has a strong fan base that most people ignored because they were young, quiet and mostly stuck to group chats and similar more private forums. She earned her spot in Izone fair and square.
Yuri is a very underrated beauty in kpop industry, she always was really underrated even in her group (I understand because there’s Taeyeon and Yoona they are extremely popular) but still… Yuri could’ve been way more appreciated by people, she is not just one of the best looking idols even to this day but also her stage presence always has been awesome I hope SM put more efforts in her as a solo act, because she can very popular also she have a strong image! Always nice to watch.
