1. [+1008, -56]  Other countries want the original six and Chanwoo too.  Today my heart was raging.

2. [+1003, -67]  It seems that the original six are safe.  I think Chanwoo will be the one to join them... the members take care of him especially well too.

3. [+835, -6]  The original six must debut 

4. [+685, -29]  Good!  Now debut just like this 

5. [+579, -25]  Let's debut YoonDongJun

6. [+290, -11]  It's obviously going to be the original six and Chanwoo if you watch the editing and the polls...  That's how I voted.  I hope that's how it turns out but I do feel bad for Yang Hongseok... not for that kid who smokes.  How come Hongseok doesn't get his own screentime ㅋㅋ I hope he succeeds somewhere else because he has his own music style that doesn't fit with Ikon.  I hope I'll see him become a famous artist one day too.  Jinhyung-ah, go reflect on your past first. 

7. [+255, -16]  YG definitely looks at the comments 100%.  Before he was trying to push Jung Jinhyung but now that's he's seen the public's reaction, he's changed to Jung Chanwoo.  It couldn't be Yang Hongseok from the start because of the way they edited his appearances but I feel bad for him.

1. [+931, -8]  There was a big difference in the applause for the three new members in the Korean fan meeting..;;

2. [+893, -122] Ah... it shouldn't be Jung Jinhyung ㅠㅠ

3. [+628, -9]  Stop making the members feel so pressured

4. [+684, -77]  It has to be 6B ㅠㅠ but Jung Jinhyung in fourth place..... ㅋㅋ;

5. [+502, -18]  Go Yunhyeong!  Let's debut the original six 

6. [+250, -8]  The members, the editing, and YG all make it seem like it's going to be Chanwoo.

7. [+254, -21]  After watching Mix & Match today, it only made me more sure that it's going to be the original six plus Chanwoo.

8. [+220, -7]  YG markets them well... what other company's trainees gets the spotlight like this?  SM Rookies can't even catch up to this......

YG Press, thank you for the putting up the articles so soon. :)

i dont like Jinhyung to be the one added too. but he is a decent singer. i want Chanwoo! but i also feel bad to Hongseok. he didnt fit in like in any way. /sigh/

ramenboy said...

YG and Mnet better award those two last trainees for the shit editing that is ruining their rep to be in this industry. I hope they were hired as extras so it isn't that bad once they are eliminated(if they haven't yet). They seem to come from well off families so maybe it's not a big deal for them.

untitled said...

Honestly I love Chanwoo. He's like the best maknae material there but seriously what iKON needs right now is another strong vocal beside Junhoe. The show has obviously favoured Chanwoo from the start. He's adorable & quite competent but his capabilities are not what iKON is lacking.
I'm rooting for Jinhyung although the result is already pretty obvious that it's gonna be Team B + Chanwoo :(

Seriously, YG pushed Jinhyung? He barely got good comments from YG and co.The amount of screentime he got is the least. CW is the one who got crying plot,self camera fun time and interaction/playing with the original members(bbq with Yunhyeong, B.I ordered him to get some foods etc)

Ignis Invictus said...

I actually understand why the show favored OT6. But like you, I also don't understand why the show's editing favored Chanwoo heavily over the other two new trainees.

Ignis Invictus said...

Much as I love Chanwoo's kind personality, I'm really afraid that he'll make it to the final line up.

B-line said...

I'm so agree!! what iKON needs right now is a good vocal. I love Jinhyung's voice after heard it when he was singing in ep. 6, so I think Jinhyung is a better singer and dancer than CW and HS. And his stage presence is getting better too. He needs more spotlight~!
CW is a good kid, but he's more suited to be an actor. HS is like he don't give a fuck with everything. I just want someone who suited with iKON's style, and i think it's Jinhyung.

I hope that's how it turns out but I do feel bad for Yang Hongseok... not for that kid who smokes. How come Hongseok doesn't get his own screentime ㅋㅋ I hope he succeeds somewhere else because he has his own music style that doesn't fit with Ikon. I hope I'll see him become a famous artist one day too. Jinhyung-ah, go reflect on your past first.

YG cast Hongseok last minute, and then told him that he does not fit with iKON. Then why did you have to cast him at first place??? He must have shown his singing before join YG. That boy have such a great talents. YG will have a great loss losing him. Just how I hate YG when he didn't debut SuPearls. He actually could make SuPearls become like BigMama and can make them successful since Korean loves them from Kpopstar & Korean love ballad. I even think that they can enter Hollywood. Anyway, it's all the past & please don't lose Hongseok too.

B-line said...

I hope Jinhyung can get more spotlight. I saw his performance in ep 6, omg he did really good!!

captainobvious said...

Hongseok's vocal outshines half of Team B, he's good looking and can even speak Korean, English and Mandarin. YG, why you so blind? The boy's precious. Don't let go of him.

devilvp said...

Same. He's nice and all but offers nothing talent wise to Ikon that the original members didn't have already.
Despite the evil editing of M&M, really hoping Seok or Jinhyeong makes it, what Ikon needs is a good singer not an extra background member

Bald Mr.Worldwide said...

At least Jfans see something on him and appreciate his efforts.
Kfans? Yes some of them said the kid got nice tone but they wont let go the fake iljin rumour.

dthh said...

I don't see the point if this program. The editor made HongSeok become a bastard, and JinHyung when he was eliminated they didn't film him or even aired his interview. Yang sajangnim just debut Team B+ ChanWoo as you want. I feel bad for HongSeok and JinHyung. They have so much potential

untitled said...

Kfans are super narrow minded. I'm so disappointed in them

B-line said...

What iKON needs right now is a good vocal who suited with iKON's style, NOT a kid with good personality.

Bald Mr.Worldwide said...

I would've more tolerated with him joining the group if his image doesnt coincide with Yunhyeong so much. He just scream Yunhyeong for me whenever I watch him, I mean his voice,bright/happy go lucky personality, visual etc.

untitled said...

M&M is ultimately just a show to promote Team B & Chanwoo. No question!

Bald Mr.Worldwide said...

It would be nicer if YG actually gave him some screentime to explain his pasts and deny the bullying/sexual assaulting rumour.

Ignis Invictus said...

I know this sounds bad for me to say, but as Seok seems to have zero chance of getting in, Seok fans should just focus on supporting Jinhyeong. That is of course if they prefer Jin over Chanwoo.



Again, no one can hate Chanwoo. He is so adorable. But as you said, he offers nothing to iKON that OT6 already has as a group. Yet, CW has one foot in already.

James Ball said...

Hongseok isn't very versatile. Yes he has good vocals but his dancing is way off and he has little to no chemistry with the other guys on stage. He needs way more training than the other two.
lbr he was added to the mix for drama's sake, knowing he would never actually make it.

Those rumors are going to follow Jinhyung in Korea no matter what. I suspect that's one of the reasons for his lack of screen time. But he also seems to rarely talk even when everyone is together so who knows.



But yeah Chanwoo is going to win and i'm very okay with that.

B-line said...

It's still a rumor but k-netz like to judge without knowing a shit. What iKON needs right now is a good vocal who suited with iKON's style, NOT a kid with good personality.

B-line said...

M&M is basically just a show to promote Team B & Chanwoo. I read your shit YG.

devilvp said...

I agree, it seems awful to suggest this but if it were down to Jinhyeong and Chanwoo, which one deserves a place more?
I can now concentrate on the 3 of them after the relief of ot6 being momentarily safe
I really hope yg didn't add Seok to be some ugly contrast to the other 2, he actually has more to offer.

dthh said...

Totally agree! After seeing the lastest ep I'm really pissed off. Hongseok didnt got 10sec of his own, and I'm not sure about Jinhyung if still in this program anymore

Ignis Invictus said...

I'm rooting for Jinhyeong as member #7 but as knetz said, it really looks like it's going to be CW.

If it happens to be Chanwoo, it will take a year for Chanwoo to be totally settled. For the meantime, he'll do what Yunhyeong did in WIN last year. He'll be hiding behind everyone for some time until his talent actually becomes evident.

devilvp said...

Yoyo was always a great dancer though and you can hear potential in him unlike Chanwoo
Ugh many people label ikon vocal members as chipmunks, they need Seok/Jinhyeong to bridge Jinhwan to Junhoe.
If Chanwoo joins, then I don't get the point of M&M

macy_12 said...

ugh, seriously. I'm kinda pissed that YG didnt give him a good spotlight. Im still praying that YG will rig the show & put him in. HongSeok is seriously too precious to lose. He brings something that iKON really needs. His vocals, his freaking vocals! I'm really scared he'll get cut, but praying YG will rig it hard, I'm sure YG can hear HongSeok's vocals….. the rest he can really work on it.
God, I'm gonna cry if HongSeok gets cut. Justice for HongSeok.

macy_12 said...

serious SMH at YG for the way they portrayed HongSeok & serious smh if YG loses him. iKON will come to be Double B & Junhoe is the lineup really does not include HongSeok. his vocals are desperately needed to balance this group out.

Kaila said...

I agree with you so much. Sigh.

Ignis Invictus said...

The very reason why I don't like Chanwoo is not because of what he can't do really, but more because of what he is... and that is he sounds like Donghyuk and Jinhwan. So we can't have three people sounding the same. It pretty much negates all things M&M was supposed to achieve for iKON. But I don't doubt that he can improve. But he'll still sound the same as the other two.

Kaila said...

Making a praying circle for Hongseok. :( I'm so furious with their terrible, VERY BAD, editing of Hongseok. Boy can sing, he's talented and yet others put him down saying his voice sucks. Okay. And his attitude sucks. Erm is being frank bad? -.-

macy_12 said...

Also he's a hyung to them, so i can see him asserting his spot. He's the last to join but no matter what he's a hyung, he has his rights. ugh
We need a prayer circle for him. #justiceforHongSeok!!

hinny said...

I wonder if, just if Hongseok or JinHyung be chosen in spite of Chanwoo become the 7th member. What would YG do next? Do another survival to make sure his biased can debut hah :)))). I'm really curious about that :))))

Btw i prefer JinHyung, Hongseok has the voice but I still think he suits ballad not hiphop style. Even if he not be chosen I want YG to keep him train him well and maybe debut him in a team with KangNam Unit or a duet with JunHoe :))))

Kaila said...

Exactly. I just wanna slap his face so bad sometimes. Heck, I'm kidding. Most of the times. Says that Hongseok doesn't fit with YG then in the first place, don't take him be your trainee. So annoyed. Its either Hongseok that suits to be in iKON or maybe Jinhyung.

If Hongseok not gonna debut in iKON or whatever, I hope he will eventually debut and be big and shove it down the haters and yg faces.

Kaila said...

:(((((( EXACTLY!!! And some fans goes around like so what he's the hyung? He's a new member blah blah blah. And idk but the members reactions to him when he first joined was pretty harsh but glad the unreleased cuts shows that they're somewhat okay with him.

Kaila said...

If you gonna portay a kid as a douche, making him as if he doesn't even exist at some episodes, next time don't even bother to put him in the lineup to be one of iKON members.

Choosing a kid cause has a nicer personality as compared to the other 2? Lol.

Whatever it is, like the comments below, iKON needs someone who has a nice voice and who among the 3 has it? Yang Hongseok. He doesn't fit into YG style? Heck, he can change his style. Give him time. Just like Taehyun. Someone who doesnt disappear into double B shadows? Yang Hongseok. Someone whose voice is not nasally for the ears. Yang Hongseok.

Hahaha if YG gonna really debut Team B and Chanwoo, I'll laugh. Not that I hate Chanwoo, heck I adore him, you can't really hate a guy like him. He's just like a clone of Yunhyung and Jinhwan maybe.

macy_12 said...

yeah, they seem to be warming up to him. heard that there's quite a lot of interaction w/him & the members at the fan meetings.

Kaila said...

Yup! And that just shows that the editing of m&m sucks and it's scripted. Bummerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

ykrunkg said...

No offense to Chanwoo but I don't really see him in iKon and I know he tries hard and all but I feel like it's Jinhyeong or Hongseok that should make it in the final lineup.

chyeah said...

You cant say who deserves the place more. You dont know what each member has been thru and the back story so yeah. It all comes down to ur personal preference anyways & ultimately ygs choice.

mambin said...

the show is so rigged LOL obviously promoting chanwoo. people said he's the nicest but it's only because hongseok has basically no screentime LOL. that kid has a good and chill personality just seeing from the snippets of the show

mambin said...

on the final battle yesterday, hongseok was the first to ask donghyuk if he was okay after he hurt his ankle. the editing is just....... sigh

Wendy Hia said...

I am still supporting Chanwoo !!!!

SEEKER OF JUSTICE said...

I completely agree.

It would mean a lot if you guys could sign this petition to highlight how amazing voting for Hongseok, Jinhyeong, Yunhyeong & Junhwe could be for IKON's vocal line.

R.Thompson said...

Everyone was pretty sure it was going to be Chanwoo. I admit, he improved the fast of al the trainees but Jinhyung has the better voice and is a better dancer.

BeiSandy said...

Pretty sure YG doesn't like Hongseok. I mean he edits him badly and he even told him he doesn't fit with the group. Hongseok is a really nice guy and I like him, but I don't think he'll work out in iKon.

I do think YG was for Jinhyung at first... Choosing Chanwoo over Junhoe makes OT6 fans more defending, YG probably originally planned to drop Chanwoo. Chanwoo saved himself in the interview and showed good manners, so the netizens didn't turn on him. That was filmed a long while ago, before the iljin rumors were there. When YG gives Jinhyung bad comments while he did well in most of our eyes (examp. "You still don't fit in"), he makes his defenders even more defending.

I'm not quite sure about Hongseok, I guess it's all because the members didn't have a good first impression of him.

After all Iljin rumors blowed up, YG might have changed to Chanwoo since he would give iKON a better image. All I can do is hope that the 7th member will be the one who will show most growth, gets along with the others the most, and feels comfortable around them and with his position.
