On May 3, reps from the Mnet show neither confirmed nor denied the reports, stating, "It's difficult to tell you the situation related to picking the center position. Please find out through the broadcast itself."
It was previously reported Kaeun has been chosen as the center of the Korean team alongside Japanese idol star Miyawaki Sakura of HKT48, who'll be in the "center position" for the Japanese group. 'Produce 48' will be a collaboration between K-pop trainees and Japanese trainees that takes inspiration from the Japanese girl group AKB48. It's set to premiere in June.
