I know. I know that you aren’t happy at all ever since the beginning of the show. I know neither of you guys are happy to be on the show. But as episode goes by, I slowly see JR & Minhyun finally gaining recognitions starting from Sorry Sorry Team 2. I know if Minhyun were to select all of his members to be on his team, NU’EST will just get more hates & malicious comments. In order to team up with 1 of them & indirectly help him, he chose JR. He suggested & gave JR the chance to show everyone his leadership. Both of them definitely made their performance a legendary stage. Second evaluation, not knowing who might be in your group & whether you’re given a chance to choose the song you want, the 19th place Ren & 20th place Baekho were standing right beside each other, I believe they did discuss to choose the same song (if possible) thinking of boosting up their popularity like how the other 2 guys did. In NU’EST, Ren is the center & Baekho is the main vocal, so both shines. But here in 2nd evaluation, vocal position – Playing With Fire, you’ll become the center if you’re the main vocal so Baekho had it all to himself. And having NAYANA center in their group, there aren’t many people left discussing about Ren’s existence in the group. ALSO BECAUSE HE WASN’T GIVEN A MIC.
After given the new nickname Fireproof Bandit, Baekho went straight up in his ranks to the 8th place after the vote resetting, leaving Ren behind alone. Second elimination, Baekho successfully stepped into Top11 with both JR & Minhyun. Again, Ren is left behind on the 20th. Replay & look at how worried af JR’s face was when Ren was announced as the 20th. Everyone (including themselves) knows it’s kinda impossible for all 4 to re-debut together so Mnet chose to mute Ren. No mic no screentime.
They recorded the third elimination on the 3rd June & since then many different rumors had been spread mentioning Ren is eliminated. I SERIOUSLY HATE THOSE STUPID RUMORS. Eliminated or not, shut up & watch EP10 on the coming Friday. And it’s really heartbreaking seeing how individual fans (not NU’EST stan) of either JR / Minhyun / Baekho giving up on saving / voting Ren. Look how desperated the surroundings & situations had led him to that he had to indirectly beg PJH a few times for the center position just so that people can look at him for a while more. Can we not give up on him?
Firstly I’ve gotta say this confessor here is definitely a NU’EST stan which I’m a little glad seeing their fanbase growing 😊 And because it seems like you’re supporting more than half of them so I’m not going to point you out on leaving Ren out 😂
But look at this shit here. Can anyone just kindly tell me WHAT THE F IS THIS?! If you’re to be this picky on every shit everyone of them has done, point every fcking one out. Not just on them thank you. Im Young Min getting 1st place in their rap position battle despite ALSO making a small mistake during their actual stage. Dongho being greedy you said? And then there you said their fans replying things like of course they should be greedy being on that show. Should we go more detailed on both Lee Dae Hwi & Joo Hak Nyeon? Dongho’s voice being not particularly standing out? They do already have quite a huge fanbase, before 101, but overseas. The reputation & recognitions they have earned now started only after 101, by local Koreans.
I’ve gotta say – people should at least brain something before pouring words out. You don’t look smart at all commenting things like that because you’ve just became the exact criticizer you was mentioning.
Samuel is good & talented but I felt bad for him having people like you as his fan.
My 5 oppa(s) have been singing & repeating their debut song for the past 5 years, are now finally hitting the jackpot! This program definitely in someway prolly like 50% of the initial idea came from the fact that you guys have earned yourself the reputation & recognitions by joining a survival show as debuted contestants. Giving some chances to the other idols in the industry – ahh we’re not really failed we do still have chance to shine 😊 But 18 out of 500 is crazy tho 😂 Instead of copying Produce 101, I’ll say that you guys are surely the inspiration for them. I’m glad seeing how all current & former idols are rooting for you guys on the show, hoping that you guys can walk on flowery path! 😁 Really a big thanks to TVXQ Changmin, Suju Donghae, U-Kiss Alexander etc. CEO Hwang must be too excited jumping around in the English Village knowing he have got his favourite senior (TVXQ) supporting him ❤
And I hope this new program will be another chance for them to hit the jackpot like how NU’EST finally did 💕
2nd round of elimination & ranking :
1. Kim Jong Hyun
6. Hwang Min Hyun
11. Kang Dong Ho
20. Choi Min Ki
축하해요 어니부기 리더님 😘 하핫
Here I am again for a rough translation so that you guys can understand a little bit.
I’m here rooting for Pledis trainee Choi Min Ki! Hello lucky MinKi MinKi! I’m your Angelinas Yongjin! I’m writing you this letter because I wish I can help you even if it’s just a little bit. Actually you were my senior from the same school (high school I supposed) you probably didn’t know but I’ve seen you quite a few times! I surely remember you because you seems like a really good & kindhearted person in our school to both friends & seniors juniors, so I was glad seeing the news that you’re joining the show. I really wanted to be close to you since then although I was quite afraid & worried, but you approached & talked to me first before anyone else did. From Pick Me to now, I felt really thankful that I was able to laugh, cry, and go through all hardships with you even when the cameras are off. I guess it was you who motivated me & it was because of you that I’m able to endure those hardships until now. Hyung as a person who works so hard and is so kindhearted & pure, I felt disappointed & sad that you’re still not shining bright to the National Producers, knowing you definitely have the talents, visual & popularity. I hope this short letter here can help you on your way to debut! This time in this concept evaluation, please do show us your MinKi Power through A Little Girl! Let’s debut! Please vote for trainee Choi Min Ki! Thank you.
Allkpop Article – Big Twist in 2nd Elimination
Firstly we have to congratulate our Nation Leader for winning the overall rap position from EP07! 💕 1등 축하해 우리 어니부기 ❤ I’m glad that the 110k benefit goes to one of you.
Yeap so the 2nd round online votings ended yesterday on 20th May at KST11:00. Yeap they recorded the 2nd round elimination yesterday as well. Out of 58, only 35 are left going through to the next mission – concept evaluation. What kind of big twist do you think it is that they’re releasing articles on it? Should we guess 👀
Unexpected kind of big twist will be like –
(a) Kim Samuel on the edge of being eliminated – which is kind of impossible
(b) Ren’s ranking – Idk at all whether will he be able to rise back up 😕
(c) Park Woo Dam – if only Mnet broadcasted his performance last week during EP06, people will have more days to vote for him after watching the broadcast
(d) Kim Sang Bin – seeing his ranking flew up from 60th after the 1st elimination I thought maybe he might survive through this round but…
(e) Lee In Soo – the guy who covered Jungkook’s rap from BIL Team 2? Now in Kim Sang Bin & Park Woo Dam’s group, N Sync POP. He’s so not seen on the show, wouldn’t be surprised if he’s eliminated 👀
Wait, I mean, if it’s really unexpected, people from bottom ranks will actually make it through while people from higher ranks fell out.
I don’t know. I need Ren to continue. But at the same time if he’s not going to make it into Top 11, at least leaving now will have lesser pain.
1. Yeo Hwan Woong 여환웅 (RBW)
I’ve gotta say I only realized he was one of the members in Replay Team 1 while watching Sorry Sorry Team 2’s performance. Mnet showed his reaction watching the performance in the waiting room. Hahaha sorry but that’s how I recognize him – the 대박이야 guy in pink outfit brushing his hair backwards 😂 You know in this position evaluation, thankfully he got the center position despite having people like Joo Hak Nyeon in his team. Although in the end people still voted for JHN, Hwan Woong definitely slayed his center position. Sexy af 👍 That head band with chest pump moves & expression of yours are killing me seriously. You deserved that center & I believe you’ll get through the next elimination. RBW guys are really all talented & of course I’m still sad about Son Dong Myeong being eliminated, let’s focus on cheering the leftovers now. Please make it to the finals & show us more of you! 😊 Eye Contact Fancam – [Dance] RIGHT ROUND 여환웅
2. Im Young Min 임영민 (Brand New Music)
Yes, Brand New Music doesn’t only have LDH, they have this next Kim Jong Hyun here – alpaca Im Young Min. Both Kim Jong Hyun and him are definitely the most selfless & kindhearted leader. Wait, prolly you’ll realize he wasn’t the assigned leader yeah I know. I guess being the only rapper of the team, he just wanted to help out a little on both Kim Dong Hyun (his labelmate) & Kim Dong Bin. He leaded Kim Dong Bin from zero to who he is now (being able to rap his part smoothly) & ended up making mistakes on own parts. Currently ranked 12th now & is getting 10k benefit votes so hopefully you’ll be able to squeeze into Top 11 by next week. Eye Contact Fancam – [Rap] BOYS AND GIRLS 임영민

I saw statements saying that the remaining donations for Ren’s ad will be donated to UNICEF under Choi Min Ki’s name. 좋다 ❤ He must be really proud of ㄴ ㅇ ㅅ ㅌ everywhere.
