Wow that ranking was pretty shocking in a lot of ways. Lots of shakeups in the Top 12. First, I have to say that mNet really did succeed in sabotaging the j-trainees by basically not showing them in episode 6. I'm positive Mako could have made it if she had gotten a little bit of focus, but she was almost cut out. Chiyori probably had a chance too if her group was shown in episode 6 instead of 7. There are now only 3 Japanese girls in the top 12 (down from 5) and many of the remaining Japanese girls in the top 30 are almost at the bottom. At this rate only Nako and Sakura will make the final group, unless they give Hii-chan some focus to keep her in as well. Second, I do not get the Hyewon hype at all. Yeah, she's pretty and she seems nice. But she can't rap. At all. She's completely expressionless in both her face and her vocal tone. It seems the Korean voters are easily swayed by editing and all the focus she got, because if they were voting based on performance she'd be nowhere near the top 30, much less the top 3. I am very happy about Park Haeyoon's rise and Kim Nayoung making the cut. They both were exceptional in Meri Kuri. Nako at number 2, well, I can't really complain about that. Also happy Miu went up enough to stay in.
