[1] "A baby chick ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ As long as everyone in the original six is included, I don't mind who the seventh person will be"

[2] "If they let go of Hong Seok, they'll regret it.  He seems like the type who will become big... when their pictures first got released, he was the kid who got the most attention."

[3] "Originally I wanted Chanwoo to join the original six but now I want Hong Seok to be in it too"

[4] "The last picture is so true ㅋㅋㅋ I like Hong Seok.  He knows where he's lacking and works hard for it.  Hong Seok-ah, practice more and debut!"

[5] "Can't they just debut Team B as they originally were and put the other kids for another group?  This program is a mess... it's too cruel"

[6] "They should have just debuted him with another group.  Maybe he wouldn't have gotten so much hate if they did that"

[7] "If we're talking about effort, it's Chanwoo but for looks and talent, Hong Seok has it too.  As for Jung Jinhyung, just exclude him because of his past."

[8] "ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I actually don't mind whoever joins with the original six.  At first I didn't like them but now my heart is starting to open up to them."

[9] "He's cute.  I hope he becomes successful whether he becomes an Ikon member or not"

[10] "It has to be either Chanwoo or Hong Seok"

I wish people gave him a chance but it's too late.

Aced21 said...

Holy crap, Jung Jinhyeong's past is all a fake, are they still believing in that shit (except for the smoking one)

jj said...

So many people in the fandom hate this kid and it makes me so sad and disappointed. You guys know almost everything in that show could be scripted right? We haven't even seen his full potential or anything like that

Kpopismylife2010 said...

Nope. He needs to go. He needs to be the first to be eliminated.

cnu said...

I think he looks so much like lee hyun woo

Wendy Hia said...

I dont hate hiong seok but sorry i simply love Chanwoo !!! Chanwoo stole my fangirl heart away...

TS_Love1403 said...

Love Hongseok since I heard his voice and haters who bash him baser on 1-3 min of evil editing footage from Mnet needs to sit the fuck down and evaluate

macy_12 said...

Awwww Hong Seok is sooo cute!

Nova_REMIX said...

I'm so annoyed by him though...

Bella said...

Ah!!! Why are they being like this to Jinhyeong....??? The boy's talented,gorgeous & likeable....that rumors aren't even true.

jhen said...

Yeah I agree with you. Actually out of the three he is the best. His dancing skill will eventually be okay if he will practice more. He didn't train like the others. He was just put in instantly thats why he is clueless on what to do. He needs someone ro guide him. People just mis interpreted him. Sorry for my english.

mambin said...

i actually like hongseok the most because he seems the chillest and realest and weird lol... like team b haha. and i know he is trying it just doesnt really work out for him...

mambin said...

i think this show is really unfair to him... the other 2 significantly got more screentime and I remember on the episode before the china fanmeeting, his performance hadn't aired yet (while the other 2 did) then how do they expect people to like him, let alone vote for him, when they have shown nothing about him?

James Ball said...

It was really unfair to Hongseok and the others guys for YG to make him compete when he'd been in the company for two weeks. Obviously he was just looking for people to add to the mix for drama's sake and he didn't care who it was.


At the same time, he's getting an opportunity of a lifetime and wasn't putting in the effort he should have been. It's not once but multiple times that he got called out for that. Hopefully that has changed because he is talented and i'm open to him being in the group. But is this really what he wants? Can he know after being there for such a short time?

James Ball said...

Well, we have no way of knowing if the rumors are true or not.


Jinheyong just kind of...blends in the background. Doesn't really stand out even during performances. That's something he needs to work on.

commedesfuckdown said...

Team B doesn't need another who just blends in, they need someone who stands out, and that's Yang Hong Seok out of three. He is also the most talented one. He will probably make it though, I somehow feel one or two of the original members will be cut.

Stardust said...

I think he "blends in the background" as you put it so he can avoid more hate .. If he had acted funny or playful, i think netz who believed the rumors would bash him even more ..
I like his voice best among the new trainees I hope he can make it into iKON ..

bruh said...

hongseok is hilarious in his own way. his attitude is something refreshing to see actually ;_;

TS_Love1403 said...

Actually I find his personality to be the most real, as he said he's really frank. And I love that he doesn't sugarcoat anything or is just being fake/kissing ass to get on fans good side. Hongseok is just being himself, and you can't be bff

sunniidays said...

Same! :( Like he gets the least screen time and when he does, he's being criticized and is portrayed as not hard working enough and doesn't fit in. I wish they would show the nice and fun sides to him. -_- It's really not being fair to him.

Bald Mr.Worldwide said...

I feel bad for him. Such a hardworking young kid got crucified and hates bc of that BS made up by his haters.
He is born with a nice tone/touching voice.His acapella in the last battle was surprisingly good, based on that performance he actually had a chance against Junhoe with his nice tone.
I hope he continue to pursue his dream if he fail to make it to iKON final line up.

Bald Mr.Worldwide said...

All the fun sides are shown in the unreleased cuts but I guess YG is not going to release them anymore. They will probably include those cuts in M&M DVD to sell it to fans.

Bald Mr.Worldwide said...

Most of the scenes of the second battle were filmed in late August/early Sept. The rumor was already spread around and he received tons of hates. According to kfans, he cried a lot. This probably explain that why he seems fragile in the show and tend to blend in the background to avoid more hates/criticisms.

Fleur de lis said...

I like Chanwoo the most. Hong Seok next. :)

Moe said...

this kid need more trainee, maybe 1 or 2 year....
i still didnt catch his hip hop vibe

Aced21 said...

In all honesty, i don't support #OT6, i first looked at team b as one that was 'double b and the boys', until i watched mix and match of which was able to change my decision about some of the members.


Truthfully, i believe what YG said, about how Donghyuk and Yunhyeong(?) playing a REALLY minor role, but yunhyeong actually surprised me in ep 6 and Donghyuk well, he sounds way to similar to jinhwan and really, i don't see his presence at all (maybe it's just me, but his singing voice is not my style either).


Yes, Jinhyeong's acapella, the tone of voice, really, just hit me in the feels.


I liked all of the new members, however, Hong Seok's voice does not cater at all for Ikon, he probably could adjust it, but his voice is really out of place and as YG said, it's like he's doing a SOLO.


My personal favourite lineup is: BI, BOBBY, JINHWAN, JUNHOE, YUNHYEONG, JINHYEONG and CHANWOO (HONG SEOK probably); what's yours?

Wendy Hia said...

That would be a nice combination

Lumiere said...

i'm rooting for Jinhyeong.but Hong Seok is my second choice

R.Thompson said...

He just started opening himself. But he needs to talk more and voice is opinions. I want the original 6 and the one with the mole on his nose. This guy can debut solo

bruh said...

i totally agree. too bad the editing sucks balls making him look as if he is some ass ;-; and he is a good balance for the group in my opinion. hopefully many will start to see the light in him

qwertyuiop said...

I can feel him when he first entered the team. He doesn't know anything about the aimed style, yet he still showed determination and keep practising. I'm honestly surprised that he stayed. Just like everyone else, I was hesitant on the idea of adding a new member to the original OT6. But now I just don't mind, and personally hope it'll be Hongseok. Let's hope for the best to all of them! (Just don't mess with the original members please)

celes said...

But why he still get bash by knetz if the rumor are false? Knetz should be the one who know about it well than i-fans. JH has a unique tone, its such a pity if they let him go.

uollss said...

boy got so much unnecessary hate he become more cautious and timid by ep this is frustating bc i expect him to be threat for june's rebel child status

Kaila said...

Omg. Firstly I'm so happy that our Hongseok been receiving love. I didn't know that there are still people supporting and liking him. I thought everyone hated on him and prefers Chanwoo/Jinhyung. T.T I reallllly want him to be in iKON. T.T

panshel said...

Mnet is HongSeok's biggest anti. I don't think HongSeok is going to make it, but this Maleficent image Mnet has created for him may follow him for the rest of his career, which sucks because I sincerely doubt that is his true personality. He's a talented kid who might have been successful had he not auditioned for YG.

panshel said...

To me, Mix & Match was never intended to cut anyone from OT6. The purpose of this show is to build iKON's rabid fanbase and justify being able to debut Team B even though they lost to Team A. YG was forced to add another member because of the "promise" he made during WIN to disband the group or replace members. He strategically put JunHwe in the bottom 3 and eliminated YoonHyung to scare fans into voting. I can't see any way OT6 will not make it.

NunmulBaboBB said...

A lot of it has to do with being older than the rest. There is no reason for him to put on a face or be overly submissive to guys that are younger than him.



I highly doubt he will make it in Ikon b/c I I think he does not fit AT ALL but I hope he stays in YG and maybe debuts him in solo or duo later in time.

Maha said...

if only people put their hate aside, they'd notice how incredibly hilarious he actually is

Bald Mr.Worldwide said...

Lol nothing new and surprise with Knetizens bashing. They dont bother to check out the post that clear this rumor and most of them are jumping on the bandwagon to drag him down. Look at Sistar case, it has been proven that Dasom isnt an iljin but they still bring that rumor up when there is a positive article about Dasom. Netizens just choose to ignore the truth.

Wendy Hia said...

Find ygpress blog a little Hong Seok Biased....

mona said...

Why are all chanwoo stans so damn weird
And it's Hongseok not Hiong Seok chanwoi fan .

BeiSandy said...

I actually like Hongseok, but I don't think he'll fit in Ikon ever. He's more Indie style.

Baby said...

i dont hate hongseok,,
he has beautiful and sweet voice...
but he REALLY doest fit to be in IKON, cz he doest has a hip-hop style
and IKON is all about hip-hop (and YG ent.too)
more than that, he cant dance and just ruin the other dance performance
hongseok has a ballad style on him,
maybe doing solo suit him better

Judyi said...

I'm voting 6B and Jinhyung, he sings well not as good as hong seok but hong seok sounds like he is tone deaf he ignores beats, sucks at timing and his notes are usually off, plus his dancing is weak which is Team B's strongest area.
Chanwoo has week vocals compared to the other teo tho. He's cute and all and the members like him but the whole program is about vocals so I'd go with Jinhyung.

Say what you say about Donghyuk but he is like a harmonizing member, he joins instantly, cleanly and on the note. Plus he learns choreo as quick as jinhwan and is very clean. People doesn't seem to know but he won JYP's in house singing and dance competition, he just didn't stick around there cuz he moved to YG.
