Produce 101 Season 2: My OT11?

Produce 101 is (literally) one of Korea’s largest ”Idol Making” TV program. The first season which featured an all female cast first aired in January 2016. The second one featuring an all-male cast is currently airing on Mnet (the first episode was released in April 2017).

The concept of the reality survival show is pretty simple, 101 trainees from various agencies are all pitted against each other in hopes of rising to the final 11 candidates who will get to debut. Over the course of several weeks, the trainees are evaluated in various fields such as Singing, Dancing, Rapping and more. According to their skill level, they’re classed either in rank A, B, C, D or F.

As the weeks go on, Nation’s Producers (Korean Viewers) are allowed to vote for the trainee they wish to see debut. Those chosen 11 are then offered a contract to temporarily promote as a group, and when that promotion period is over the group disbands and the members go back to their respective labels.

Honestly, I didn’t really pay attention to the first season, Girl Groups aren’t really my jam. So I heard a few things here and there about the trainees on the show, and I saw a couple of their performances on Youtube but that’s about it. When the final 11 girls formed I.O.I, I wasn’t stanning the group… So in conclusion, I generally knew who they were and what title songs they had, but that’s all.

The second season, however, I find much more interesting. I’m still not watching the show because it’s a pain to stay updated with all the episodes and I don’t really like ”survival” types of programs. But, I am checking the rankings after each new episodes and I’m also watching quite a lot of their performances on Youtube. I’d stay I’ve done enough to kinda know who I would like to see debut 😉 of course I don’t know every trainee. Mostly the popular ones or some that I thought stood out during performances.

Shape of You – Dance Evaluation

One of my favorite dance performance on the show!

I’d stay I’ve done enough to kinda know who I would like to see debut 😉 of course I don’t know every trainee. Mostly the popular ones or some that I thought stood out during performances. So, since I’m kind of into this whole thing, I thought I would share with y’all my OT11. So basically the 11 trainees I want to see debut 😀 (I’m also including trainees that were eliminated or left the show).
