On the May 26 broadcast of the show, the top 35 contestants who will be moving on to the next challenge were revealed. The ranking is based on the combination of online votes and live audience voting from the previous position-based challenge. Any bonuses earned by top contenders in each team and category during the previous challenge were also added to the final score.

2. Lai Guan Lin (Cube Entertainment)

This episode also featured the beginning of the next challenge, which will be the long-awaited concept challenge.

Five entirely new songs of different genres have been created by popular producers just for this challenge. The most popular team based on live audience votes will receive a benefit of 220,000 points, with whoever is first place within that team taking 100,000 points, and the rest equally dividing the remaining 20,000 points.

With this arguably being the most important challenge, viewers of the show have already voted for the trainees they best think will suit each song. Based on these votes, a maximum of 12 people were assigned to each team, since the challenge was introduced ahead of the second elimination.

The exception was Kang Daniel, Kim Dong Bin, and Lee Ki Won, who were penalized for allegedly hinting at which songs they would want through social media. They instead were assigned last, filling up the remaining spots after the other 55 trainees formed teams.

The five tracks are hip-hop track “Oh Little Girl,” EDM track “Open Up” (literal translation), new disco track “Show Time,” deep house track “NEVER,” and funk track “I Know You Know.”

As groups were formed before the elimination, the lineup for each group is tentative.

Currently, the teams are as followed:

“Oh Little Girl” – Lee Gun Hee, Park Ji Hoon, Choi Min Ki, Bae Jin Young, Jung Se Woon, Ahn Hyung Seob, Lee Eui Woong, and Jang Moon Bok.

“Open Up” – Kang Daniel, Kang Dong Ho, Kim Yong Guk, and Takada Kenta.

“Show Time” – Noh Tae Hyun, Kim Samuel, Yoon Ji Sung, Lee Woo Jin, Kim Sang Gyun, and Park Woo Dam.

“NEVER” – Lai Guan Lin, Hwang Min Hyun, Kim Jong Hyun, Lee Dae Hwi, Im Young Min, Ong Sung Woo, Kim Jae Hwan, Joo Hak Nyeon, Yoo Seon Ho, Park Woo Jin, and Ha Sung Woon.

“I Know You Know” – Kim Tae Dong, Seo Sung Hyuk, Kim Dong Hyun, Kim Yeh Hyun, Kwon Hyun Bin, and Kim Dong Han.

Next week, these teams will be reshuffled so that there are seven equal members in each of the five teams.

“365 Fresh” by Triple H (HyunA, Hui & Hyojong)

Upbeat song in a dark story. Honestly, I like this story. It should be a movie. You got a thief,

a self-defense accidental killing,

and a suicidal.

They become fast friends.

Luck out,

and turn up.

And, of course, you can’t do without a love story.

It’s all fun and games until their luck runs out.

So they make their night count.

Make it count until the very end.


Group: subunit Triple H of Cube Entertainment.
Members: (in order of post) Hui (Pentagon), HyunA, and HyoJong (E’Dawn, Pentagon).

On May 1st they released their first EP, 199X, along with their music video “365 Fresh.”

I used to have so much respect for Cube because they were the company that gave trainees second chances at their dreams but man, they’ve reached new lows. A part of me thinks it’s just a tactic but a part of me thinks they are really that shady. Beast and Hyunseung didn’t even know and all 6 of them were shocked by their announcement. Cube is trying to erase & replace their legacy - something they built for 7 years. Beast isn’t a top idol name for no damn reason. They made strides with their quality music in this tough industry. I’m absolutely appalled as someone who has been a fan of Cube Ent artists since 2009. If it was just the name Beast they weren’t giving back, I wouldn’t be so angry, but they have the gall to try and re-group, for what? For money? For pettiness? It’s absolutely frustrating. I know a lot has changed since CEO Hong stepped down and iHQ bought up most their stocks but this is just so suspicious and disgraceful.
