ugh this ong

Produce 101 - Finale

Well, that’s it. Its over. After 11 weeks of stressing, ranting the finale just finished and boy am i conflicted….

Ill start with what I am happy about.

ONG SEONGWOO MADE IT! ONG SEONGWOO MADE IT! I AM SO PROUD! He came 5th and I was giving up on his chances of getting in and he made it and I cried for literally 20 mins. 

KANG DANIEL IS CENTER AND OMG I AM SO HAPPY BOTH OF THEM MADE IT AND HE WAS SO HAPPY AND OMG… ongniel lives on..

THE REST OF THE LINEUP - honestly aside from two people - you know who im gonna say- im very happy. 

  • Auntie Jisung made it and he will finally have his debut! I honestly didn’t think he could do but i am so happy he can debut with Daniel
  • Park Woojin made it and honeslty he proved he was this seasons Chungha 
  • Guanlin made it, I know people aren’t too happy but I liked him so leave me be. 
  • Daehwi made it! I was worried for him when it showed that he was one of the 4 around 11th place but seriously happy he made it. 
  • And i had accepted that Jihoon would be in the group whether i liked it or not so that didnt bother me too much 

Now this is what really fucking pissed me off, what the fuck how did NATIONS LEADER Jonghyun not make the fucking group. I have nothing against Bae Jinyoung but how the fuck did he make it and not jonghyun??? And poor Samuel, poor sweet Samuel… I really wanted him in the group. He looked heartbroken and it killed me. 

Mnet really fucked them over the group song stuff was stupid as hell and they may not have gotten benefit votes for it but the songs themselves were benefits! Like firstly why give them 2 different songs?? Neither of them were that good but it was clear that Hands On Me was better than Super Hot. Like the entire styling, choreo, song style EVERYTHING benefitted that team. Daehwi shot up from around 11 to 3rd, minhyun went from 11 to 9. Like the other team stood no chance. Out of the 10 people doing Hands on me only Sewoon (12th) and Haknyeon didnt make the final group. 

Anyway, I am so conflicted I will still support WAnna One (dumbass name btw) but they really missed out on something amazing with Samuel and Jonghyun. In my opinion, they should have been in  the group and Baejin and Sungwoon should not. 


I’m not trying to offend anyone its just my opinion. 

first look interview [2]

It’s your first time doing a photoshoot, yet you are the cover models. Being photographed as the cover models for a magazine indicates that you are the hot issue right now. Your popularity, does it feel real yet?

Daniel: Throughout the program, we stayed in a training camp and didn’t have the opportunity to go outside, so it doesn’t feel real yet. The total number of people who voted and who came to the site to support us during the live broadcast made me start to feel the degree of excitement about us.

Jisung: I’m unexpectedly(?) the type who likes fashion magazines and programs, so I did dream of being a cover model. But we actually became the cover models for a magazine! It’s so incredible, and an honor.

Minhyun: Since I’ve done activities before, you’d think I’d be skillful at this by now. But the truth is that I’m the type to get quite anxious, and I worried that my expression might come out too stiff. But I also think it has a different kind of fun compared to doing a broadcast. And there’s more meaning to it because this is the first photoshoot with the Wanna One members. I’m interested and excited to see how all of us together will look inside a single frame.

Who do you think looked the best today?

Guanlin: If you mean people who properly showed their masculine beauty, I think Seongwoo-hyung and Woojin-hyung looked really impressive. Seongwoo-hyung is usually bright and often shows his comic side, but going into the photoshoot, he transformed to give off a totally manly feeling. I think his strong gaze and even his gestures are good.

Daniel: I also think Seongwoo-hyung came out really well. I think he showed the most professionalism. To be honest, I felt too shy so I didn’t properly monitor my own photos.

Seongwoo: The truth is I’ve done a modelling as a part-time job a few times, like wedding shoots or online shopping malls. So I probably came out more naturally than the other members (!). Haha. Because the staff told me I was doing a good job and praised me, I think the atmosphere was comfortable to shoot in. They told me that of the members, I took the shortest time to get an “A” cut. Haha.

Jaehwan: Then what about the third best person? Me, it’s me? (laughs)

During today’s shoot, it seems you all monitored each other’s photos and took care of each other. Because you all individually spent your time in different companies, teamwork between the members must be extremely important.

Minhyun: Wanna One had a different start point. Other idol groups are revealed in a nearly complete state, but we were revealed prior to our debut, with all our immaturity and less than refined sides. The National Producers watched the progression of our growth, and considered us carefully regarding our personalities, inclinations, and even our preferences to create the team. So because of that, I think our teamwork is more solid than other groups.

Daehwi: While filming for the broadcast, I already thought many times, ‘We are one.’ We overcame that time together. That’s why I’m not worried at all about our teamwork.

Jisung: All of us experienced getting with a new team each week to prepare a performance. I think Produce 101 itself was a time for us to practice forming teamwork.

Woojin: We are combining each of our unique charms, so I think we have even greater synergy, and I’m sure that it’s a positive sign for our performances. I don’t think our individual styles of practicing will become a problem at all.

When love beckons to you, follow him, though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, though he hides a sword among them. And when he speaks to you, believe in him, though his voice may shatter your dreams. Love will crown and crucify you. Love for your growth so he is for your pruning. Love will caresses your tenderest branches and shake every clinging root. Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself. He threshes and sifts you he grinds until he kneads you and then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God’s sacred feast. All these things shall love do unto you, that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment. A fragment of Life’s heart. Now if in your fear you seek only love’s peace and love’s pleasure, better cover your nakedness and pass out of love’s threshing-floor. Into a seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all your laughter. And weep, and weep but not all of your tears. Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself. Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is enough. You should say, “I am in the heart of God." You cannot direct the course of love. For love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course. To wake at dawn with a winged heart, to come home in the evening with gratitude; And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise on your lips.
