    Plot twist: they will sing Choose Me in Korean, with Kitarie suprise appearance as mentor/center and she will sing it the way she sang Yume no Kawa :^O^: Legend :inlove::inlove:

    Jokes aside, does anyone knows in what language Pick Me 3.0 will be performed? Korean or Japanese? Maybe English?

    Well, in NMB members case, Kokochan and Cocona were appeared in Miorin's graduation concert tonight, and Azuza did SR and instalive so maybe they will go to Korea at midnight. Don't know whereabouts the other three, since there isn't recent SNS activity from them.

    I'm quite agree with this. After 2-shot event ended, they practiced the choreo until they didn't have enough time to sleep again. Plus, they're not used to fly light -the duration from Japan to Korea is 1 - 2 hours so they didn't get much time to sleep.

    There's M-Countdown's prerecording for P48 this week so we will see who the "confirmed" trainees and the first center :awesome:
    Anyway, Naver posted article about Sakura :omfg: http://entertain.naver.com/read?oid=009&aid=0004134571&lfrom=twitter

    ^^^Wow those angry emojis on that article tho...

    Some agencies announce it on the official schedule, some managers/idols tell the fansites because they are close, some sasengs follow the official vans from the dorms around, & some fans just ask insiders (apparently make up & hair stylists are the biggest snitches in this industry lol)

    Probably Korean for the tv version (since the show is korean) but they would probably upload both version on Youtube. I don't think Mnet would tire themselves to teach the proper pronunciation of English words to all the trainees, having 2 versions would already be hard.

    I'm really curious to see who will be the first center how close the korean & japanese trainees became

    They were given an English lesson on season 1 to improve their rap skill so who knows right? And the show will be aired in Korea and Japan.
    I think it is way harder to teach the Japanese contestants to sing in Korean vice versa.


    Could be. They might follow The Unit and MIXNINE with w center

    My skin crawls every time I see someone suggesting that they'll go out of their way to ensure equal representation of the Korean and Japanese sides. PLEASE JUST LET THE GIRLS FIGHT IT OUT.

    So far it seems to be the most fair formula though.

    I can't Imagine how bad it would be if the largest audience takes the full controle of the show outcome. (at worst an all japanese girls group)

    Keep in mind that the resulting group is most likely meant to taste the water of the Korean market for AKS.
    And a possible sister group in Korea afterward if they meet the expected success.
    Is there still a need to say that the K-pop market is a door open to the world ?

    Nah, I like the idea of there being parity between the countries.

    They already changed the 101 to 96 (48x2) to go with it, so I think it's almost certain that the final lineup will have the same amount of members from each country.

    Also, have in mind that this is probably another way for AkiP to tell the government that idols can do good in international relations (basically what NGT and STU are doing locally), so having more members from X country would go against that "We are the same" sentiment
    And let's not go into the netizen wars that would ensue if there were more Koreans or Japanese in, saying X country is better than the other, etc.

    I still think it should be 16, like the senbatsu.
    I don't want them to have unders or anything.
    First, because no other Kpop group has had unders. And secondly, because starting from 48 and ending with 24 wouldn't be a good survival show. Half of them would get into the group anyway.

    Well I guess that depends on the model of equality that you subscribe to. IMO, in an era without borders it really shouldn't matter where you're from everyone should be treated equally. Anyway, the k-netizens will hate anyway. Regardless of whatever method Mnet choses.

    I'm not against the final line up having an equal amount of number though, I just feel like there's no use to saying out right that we're saving 6 spots for Japan and 6 spots for Korea. They might as well train separately and film separately if that's the case. Why bother making the Japanese girls fly back and forth every few days since they're just competing between themselves? I think it's more inspiring and entertaining to see all of them fight for the same goal together.

    Anyway, I'm sure the Produce101 line ups are all rigged by the agencies anyway. There's no way JR didn't get enough votes to make it to the final lineup. He was number 1 for a few episodes! And then hot favourite Park Ji Hoon loosing to someone from a CJ E&M subsidiary (i.e. a Mnet sister company)? Ha!

    Sure, it would be cheaper, but it's in Korea where the teachers and choreographers are.
    And this will be, ultimately, a K-pop group, so they need to learn from them.

    Also, they'll probably perform with the Korean girls throughout the show in different units, so yeah.
    It's better if they get to know each other, learn from each other and see if there's chemistry than just put them together at the end and say These are your colleagues for the next 2.5 years. Bye!

    I think once we get the final 6 Japanese and 6 Korean members, they’ll have to fight for their positions/ranks to determine the center.

    I’m also anticipating their roles in the group too, like who’s the main vocalist, main dancer, rapper, leader, etc.

    Its almost 2am kst. Hahaha

    Excited for nayana. Im not even surprised if its mix of korean jap and some english~

    Would be expecting yukirin in A or S class given her experience. Sakura and Jurina have good chances of being centre as well ontop of yuki

    Let's not forget the less popular ones.
    I can totally see Ikumin beating Jurina.
    And even Hiichan to a lesser extend.
    /bias on.

    While Mnet practically debunked it, Let’s play devils advocate and say Mnet confirmed there will be 6 per side. Which 6 48G girls would you choose? As of now, I’d pick

    1. Sakura
    2. Jurina
    3. Tomu
    4. Miku
    5. Miho
    6. Miru

    So this group would consist already established girls? No fresh young blood?

    Already established fanbase of korean wotas give them a bit of a head start so makes sense as an initial prediction. out of that list I'd prob take out Miku and predict a team 8 girl like ikumin, honda hitomi or odaeri but I understand why that user would pick miku. really want miho to get in but understand if she won't necessarily

    It could definitely end up with younger, not so popular girls. I definitely hope so, it would be lame if it was only the more popular girls with maybe 1 exception

    Tbh I could no Tomu & Myao getting in. Tomu for her visuals, Myao for her Korean skills (Koreans will likely be impressed by the dedication)

    Ikumi & Aoi I definitely see having good chances though
