Honestly, I wasn’t impressed by anyone today. Only J-line’s performance was worth mentioning. I hope they upload uncut videos of the performances. J-line members seem like good dancers based on their training footage when they were younger.
YG Treasure Box voting scheme is stressing me out. They created individual Vlive channels for each of the 29 participants, and fans need to keep tapping hearts on their video. This means fans can only tap hearts for one participant at a time. This forces fans to pick a favorite to whom to dedicate their “hearts” (votes) to. Now that it has come down to this, I’m only going to support Byounggon, Hyunsuk and Mahiro. Worse comes to worst, if I had to choose only one, it’s going to be Byounggon.
Whatever. I don’t want to obsess about it. I’ll just wait for the performance videos.
In the meantime, I’ll unwind by watching U’s Fake Love Dance War focus cam video again.
J-line attack! What a great surprise! If there were a dancer in this group, I would’ve found a new bias. They should’ve let them greet in Japanese at least. I’ve said this many times – I find the tone of a Japanese guy’s speaking voice attractive.
I found my main vocal in Mahiro and he has Nishikido Ryo’s eyes!
Yoshinori is a talented rapper but not enough to make me drop Byounggon or Hyunsuk. Keita has a nice vibe but I don’t know what position to place him in.
Group C members were born from 2004-2005. They have better English foundation and lesser inhibitions. They performed generic stuff so I think they haven’t found their own style yet. This should serve as good exposure and learning experience for them. They feel too raw right now.
Kim Jongseob is the most promising in this group. He sounds a bit like Hyunsuk. He said he participated in Kpop Star. His experience shows compared to the other boys in this team but I still won’t put him on my list this time around.
I have a feeling that Group D will be a wildcard group. Maybe new recruits from other agencies? I don’t think YG will go younger than this for this show.
Choi Hyunsuk and Lee Byounggon are back! I’m ecstatic to see them again after the failed Mix Nine debut!😁 My bitterness towards YG is slowly dissipating. I’m sincerely hoping these talented boys will finally get the chance to debut.
Choi Hyunsuk, the little swaggernaut is back. He reminds me of a young GD.
Lee Byounggon will specialize in singing rap I suppose à la Changmo and Paloalto. Rap vocal in the house.
I think my music taste has slightly changed after listening to all that brass in Monotree’s (ONF’s song producer) songs the past month. LOL. I mean, this MV looks great and the song sounds typical YG but for some reason, I’m not that into it. I don’t know. I prefer the reggae vibe of Love Scenario. This makes me miss GD though. Am I becoming too soft?
I guess a part of me is still bitter about YG not debuting Mix Nine Top Nine too.
