She wrote

Hello everyone~ It's Sohee. This is a little long, but I put my sincerity into it, so please read it, hehe.
I wanted to tell you so many things until now, and I can finally say them, hehe. Above all, I love the fans who showed me so much love and made the 'Fast Sohee Party' through this program, hehe. How can you be so lovely..!!!!
To be honest, there was a controversy that made me have a hard time... I apologize sincerely to the people who were bothered by [my actions]. That's not what I meant and I wanted to explain myself, but I think people misunderstood because of my facial expression!! But I hope people understand that the facial expression was definitely not one of bad intent!!! And I apologize once again. Also, thanks to my fans, I was able to get a lot of strength and laugh at that episode. Without you, I don't think it would have been possible to get up to #6, hehe. I'm so thankful for the good nickname and for those who made such pretty posters for me each time, how can you be so good!! I want to actually pay money to buy them, hehe. I thank you once again. And everyone who supported and loved me~!!!! I am reading all the DMs! Don't worry - I just couldn't respond to all of them because I was busy. To be honest, each message was such a big strength to me while I was filming and practicing, and I even cried a lot of times... Hehe. In the end, you guys were the strength behind how far I was able to come. I'll go in the fan cafe really often, too!! Also, I can't get any more friends on Facebook because of all the love I got from you, so please understand.
Also, I'm not going to Busan, so don't worry. You know me, I'm fast!! I'll debut faster than anyone else and I promise to show you a fast growth!!
I thank everyone who loved me on stage for 'Push Push', 'Call Me Baby', and 'In the Same Place'. I don't know if my sincerity will go through with just words.. ㅠㅠ Even if I didn't make it, you can't leave my fandom, okay? Hehe.
And the people who made it into top 11 are all girls who work hard and are good, so please support them. They are girls who have both looks and talent and can definitely succeed. I won't give and and definitely debut. I won't disappoint you, so don't worry. Trust me and I'll debut so I can see you all again.
Oh, and also to the person who made 'Make It You'!!!!!!! I love you. You came even when I wasn't that well known to support me from the early stages of "Pick Me'. And the fans who came from other cities, you stayed and waited for me even though I ended late into the night and there were no more buses. I remember all your faces. You were like a shining light of hope for me back then. Lastly, thank you so much and I'm sorry and I love you all so much. I'll sing a lot of good songs.
The fans who supported me and those who voted for me!!!! You are the best, prettiest, and the most shining people in the world.

I didn't follow produce 101 but damn, she's so sweet

Waaah that's so nice! Her "controversy" wasnt really big and almost everyone knew it was Mnet's evil editing, the ones who didn't are seriously so stupid e.e she was really good! When she debuts I will become a fan!

nansays Monday, April 4, 2016

Someone please kindly explain to me what was this "controversy" is about? and in which episode did this happen?

IbzGema nansays Monday, April 4, 2016

Some Mnet evil editing I suppose, like went the filmed Yezi being uncomfortable with her contact lens and made it like she was glaring at one of the contestants.

Good luck :D i hope i'll see each girl debut

LilBmw Monday, April 4, 2016

She was one of my favourites, I so wish she could have debuted with I.O.I but what's done is done. She does look a bit like Hani as well. hehe

rasy Monday, April 4, 2016

does anyone know why was she given the nickname quick/fast sohee? her fanbase replied to me saying to watch the 101tv han hyeri channel. i've watched it. i even translated it tbh but i can't see any relation between her nickname and that video. anyway, what did she do wrong? i can't remember her doing anything controversial

fastsohee rasy Tuesday, April 12, 2016

oh it is not hyeri's channel, it is soyeon's channel. You know the hip hop girl? she rapped something like "I live faster than light" and got extremely embarassed of herself! She is so cuteeeee

It sounds like, overall, that SOHEE is *glad* about her *increased* visibility that has resulted from her PRODUCE 101 participation. And also, the *personal* interaction that she it with *other* contestants of PRODUCE 101. Which, that IS the idea. Even for those, like SOHEE, who do not make the 'winning' TOP11 Team. And again, EXID members include *two* JYPe Agency 'wash out' trainees in HANI and JUNGHWA. So, just because you do not 'win,' does it 'prove' that much? Again, SOHEE sounds like she feels that she *benefited* even from 'mistakes' that she might have made them. Which, that too, is the idea. IF you finally debut with a K-pop Group, you know to be *careful* to avoid repeating some *trivial* 'mistake' that *might* get 'blown up' FAR more than is justified.

It feels like JYP has almost as much famous people who were ex-trainees than people they actually debuted which makes me question how good they really are at seeing someone's potential.

krell michinpabo Monday, April 4, 2016

I actually think that JYP is pretty good at evaluating TALENT. I *suspect* that with say HANI and JUNGHWA, that *others* were somehow rated ahead of them. And they got MIFFED and LEFT JYPe Agency. Those ahead were *probably* pretty talented too. Having said that, JYP did *miss* on both IU and GOO HARA (KARA). JYP said in *particular* that it ANNOYS him to see IU on a TV screen now ... ;-) ... Like 'HOW could I have let IU get away.' ... ;-)

Thought it was Hani from the thumbnail. Anyway, I am sure k-netz will not buy her apology.
