IOI's Choi Yoo Jung appeared on KBS 2TV's 'Happy Together 3' on june 16 and talked about being the first person in the center of 'Produce 101.'

She said, "My mother [saw I was in the center] and called me because she was shocked. She found out after seeing the broadcast.  The feeling of responsibility was immense, and my bangs easily become rice cakes [as in stiff and thick instead of curved and light].  That worried me so much.  It's [bad] to the point that even the producer said we should fix our hair once before continuing on."

Imagine if she wasn't the centre in produce 101. Sometimes I wonder if she would have made it to ioi. The popularity polls were so fickle sometimes. Scratch that, popularity in general is a fickle process.

Love Yoojung <3 shes so down to earth and extremely talented and pretty

It *seems* like with IOI Group, that the *temporary* aspect of the Group does HELP the members to 'get along' better. They are NOT like 'stuck with each other' for the next five years or something in a Group. And even the 'TIP OF THE SPEAR' job (CHOI YOO JUNG) is only a temporary one.

She was originally rated as "D" in episode 1, i think it was miracle that she managed to work her way up to "A", and then get voted by the group of "A"s as the center of the "A"s, and with that Pick Me MV, she became famous over-night, and her ranking never fell below 5 throughout the whole show since then, her debut was as good as confirmed since that Pick Me MV aired.

Cherry_Peche Winston Thursday, June 16, 2016

No, I think it was bound to happen (getting in A). Yoo Jung wasn't like Sohye and moved up because she drastically improved, she was put in D simply because first, her group disappointed, second, the mentors were not able to see her real talent in that short audition.

Winston Cherry_Peche Thursday, June 16, 2016

Yes but she had a short time, I think ard 2 or 3 weeks only before the 2nd evaluation took place and she made it all the way to "A", which is hard since there were people who got dropped from A or B downwards instead. Had she not gotten "A" by that pick me MV, she would not have gotten in the center "Triangle" much less to be nominated as the tip of the pyramid, the center of the center. She was nominaated with Pinky i think, if she had not gotten to A, Pledis' Pinky would have been the center of the Pick Me song/MV,

They just didn't see her talent in the first evaluation. Even her fellow trainees at Fantagio acknowledges her as the most talented among them and you can see that they were genuinely shocked when she got such a low grade. Getting picked as center by the other girls just confirms that she's that talented.

Cherry_Peche Winston Thursday, June 16, 2016

Like I said, it wasn't that she improved in 2 or 3 weeks, she was already good and if she had auditioned by herself, she would have most likely gotten an A from the judges.

kpopmistress9730 Cherry_Peche Thursday, June 16, 2016

With such a short audition, some trainees ended up in a higher/lower grade than they actually deserved. However, most of the ones in the lower grades were able to prove themselves worthy of a higher grade. Yoojung wasn't the only one that moved up drastically; in fact, one girl moved up from "F" to "A" (fellow Fantagio trainee Lee Soomin I think) by showing her actual skills and ability. On top of that, the reevaluation was based on how quickly the girls were able to learn the dance and sing the song, so that also separates the truly "talented" from the ones who needed to put in a lot of effort to get to the same level.

Cherry_Peche kpopmistress9730 Thursday, June 16, 2016

That's what I'm saying. Winston was saying that it was amazing that Yoo Jung moved up from D to A so quickly, and I responded with the same thoughts as yours.

kpopmistress9730 Cherry_Peche Thursday, June 16, 2016

Yup I definitely agree with you. :-)
