The lovely girls of IOI were one of the guests on the September 2 airing of 'Sketchbook' for the show's girl group special, chatting it up with MC Yoo Hee Yeol.

The members talked about everything from their very own, unique characteristic as a group to the things that have changed after they rose to stardom. So Mi singled out the group's young age as IOI's best characteristic, saying, "I can confidently state that it's age. I'm currently in my third year of middle school so the highest education I've completed is elementary school. I'm always used to being the maknae no matter where I go." 


Meanwhile, Chung Ha and Do Yeon discussed how 'Produce 101' has brought about changes in their lives. Chung Ha remarked, "I participated on the program thinking, 'It's okay even if I'm eliminated.' I don't have any greed to be 'the center' or be at the top," revealing how she has matured after appearing on the survival program. 


Do Yeon, on the other hand, talked more about tangible, outward changes to her life after 'Produce 101,' revealing that even little children recognize her after she appeared on the show. The idol explained, "My older sister is a preschool teacher and her students recognized me. It's really difficult to get acknowledge by children, so I really felt our popularity then." Yoo Hee Yeol joked, "The three things children acknowledge are 'Pororo,' Yoo Jae Suk, and IOI."

    Aw but it's great to have kids recognize you. Whenever I visit my lower school I always have certain kids come up to me and hug me. It's heartwarming really

    "Somi singled out the group's young age as IOI's best characteristic" well it's definitely not their vocals

    Their vocals are pretty good! Excluding Yeujeung and Sejeog, Chungha, Yoojung, Pinky, Doyeon and Somi are pretty decent vocalist. Plus Somi is like 16! Give her some time to develop as a vocalist!

    Somi has that annoying whiny valley girl-ish (yes I know she's Canadian) basic ass tone that won't disappear with age. Either Jenny or Lisa (not sure which) has the same problem when they sing and they're older, so they most stick to rapping because they're much better at it. What else does Somi have to fall back on? Chungha unnie won't be around forever.
