Discussion in 'AKB48 News & Releases' started by ForrestFuller, Nov 29, 2017.
Always good to know more about AKB48 news and releases.
Chowon's profile pics and profile film have been uploaded!
These are only profile pics so there's no telling if the debut single concept will be anything like this. Woollim did something similar with Rocket Punch.
Spoiler: More about Lightsum
So far the members revealed are
Juhyeon and Sangahs profile film. Jian is the girl with Chowon.
I've created a thread for Lightsum in the idel emporium section – we can talk about the whole group properly now there ^^
Hwang Soyeon (#60) seems to have changed agency from Wellmade Yedang to HOW. She's probably joined HOWZ then, the pre-debut group with Wang Ke, which is currently languishing in Covid-induced limbo. They were slated for debut sometime in 2020...
I don't remember her, but she did a "freestyle" during the initial evaluation and got an A, which she retained through the second evaluation. She was in OOH-AHH team 1 and I think she had the least amount of lines (but dance break center at least).
Also, this has already been reported in the Lightsum thread but in case someone hasn't checked it out I'll add this here: CNC Lee Yujeong (#51) and Banana Culture Kim Nayoung (#21) are both debuting with Chowon in Lightsum
I think you are not in the right place. Move to The STAGE48 Idol Emporium section.
This is the thread for Produce 48. The people I'm reporting on were contestants on the show, which makes this the correct place to post updates about them since there are no other threads for them. If it bothers you perhaps you should ask the mods for the thread to be moved?
No, it's not, and we've already discussed this years ago. This thread is to discuss the show Produce 48, not the careers of the people involved with it. You don't write about Woman Rush Hour's other works in the AKBINGO! thread, do you? What happens to the former contestants after the show is over doesn't belong to the show's thread.
There's a section in this forum for K-Pop and that's where those news belong. That person in particular doesn't have a thread? Then create one yourself there! Simple.
Ah, I see you guys were the ones who started that discussion in the first place.
From what I see the mods who came into the thread to address it took no real issue with quick little news about contestants themselves, it was general K-pop topics which were the problem. There's also been no actions against people posting such news in the ~2.5 years since the discussion.
But I guess if it bothers you so much I could make a thread for former contestants elsewhere
Whew, I've been busy lately, but the new thread is finally up!
They waited until izone is gone so no one give a damn anymore?
The wheels of justice grind ever slowly.
Chowon's out there throwing shade so...
"What justice mate? I'm the real izone member 'kay?"
I only found out through this video that Chowon's and Gaeun's real ranks were revealed. Chowon at 6th and Gaeun at 5th, I hope they got plenty of compensation for how successful IZ*ONE turned out to be. I wouldn't be surprised if Chowon was the one person who hasn't received settlement payment yet, I'd want a lot
i might be attacked for saying this..
and i'd like to apologize for the next non-PC remark i'm going to say ...
She is my first pick during Produce48 (and probably after this too)..
but she looked better in her natural 'tanned' skin tone...
why did they have to make everything 'white-skinned'
I mean .. Has there ever been a beauty standard that actually made sense?
That's because Koreans love white skin. I mean, most of fansite master-nims tend to "white-wash" their idols
Because of the Korean beauty standards.
It's not just Koreans, though they do take it to an extreme yes.
If chowon and pledis auntie (ga eun?) actually placed does that mean Minju (11th) and Chaeyon (12th) would be out? or was the whole thing a cluster. And has any WIZONE admitted to the genius of the producers that did pick the ori-12, or is it PC to only flame the producers that picked the monumental final lineup. I firmly believe that you just can't leave such things up to viewers.
We don't know who would have not made it, as the ranking was entirely changed. Some of them might have received their actual rankings, but it doesn't necessarily mean that the last two members were the ones who didn't truly make it.
I really did enjoy the final lineup and think maybe Chowon and Kaeun wouldn't have fit in that well with the concept and the rest of the members, but I still think they should have been added if that's what the viewers voted for.
