Hey, its the anon who asked the 1-pick question, :) I agree that anyone that isnt jihoon, daniel and jonghyun should be concerned too my favorites are ong and daniel so while i know dainel will be okay i am worried for ong... early on a lot of people were saying that he could be this years kim nayoung - dropping out of the top in the last couple of episodes, do you think he could still drop out? i would be devastated if after maintaining top 8 for the whole show he loses it at the end :(
Well, I’d say first off that there’s no point in comparing this season with the last, the variables have changed completely, so there’s no reason to be too worried about these pessimistic parallels :)
Kim Nayoung’s fall was because of company voting going south after one pick, and we’ve seen very little of that this season (outside of Nu’est). There isn’t much company interaction being broadcast while the Jellyfish and Fantagio girls seemed inseparable on screen last year so their votes came in clusters.
Ong-ssi has a lot of fans - he gets support primarily from a wide range of people, his really, very, heol hyperbole thing trended and he trends on Naver often too. He even looks like an actor and usually gets positive, memorable screentime from Mnet and is hilarious. Someone told me that Hong Seokcheon spoke of him as his fixed pick too, which is telling about his potential popularity.
Having him not debut would not only be a shock, but a tremendous shame because of what a genuinely well rounded idol he is, so don’t worry about gloomy speculations and just hope for the best!!
