    We know YG is very competitive and the last thing he would want is help another company’s girl group. However he made a mistake which helped JYP, and that was giving him his ace member that replaces Somi, Ryujin. Without 9Mix nobody would have any idea who she is and there would be no “key” member to front JYPNGG. Now Ryujin can take the throne which Somi has built. She must be so grateful for YG, and all because he wanted a show to be close to pretty young girls.

    Ryujin's popularity and public recognition is a micro-fraction of Somi's. No one watched mixnine.

    Somi is the IT girl of Korea I think. That JYPNGG was going to be successful because of her. Idk about that anymore. Somi's popularity is no joke.

    Somi will get the same fate as Jessica and Minzy

    She’s done

    The eyes will focus on Ryujin now

    If you asked the general public to name one member from either finalist group, they most likely wouldn't be able to.

    No one gave much shits about mixnine except some dedicated YG stans. Somi's popularity is on a whole another level. Ryujin is nothing when compared to somi.

    I think she's pretty good if she can sell 50k for a mini album as a soloist and have 2/3 successful Asian tours and fanmeetings, just like Jessica.

    Was pretty surprised that Somi left and that JYP let Somi left. She is so popular.
    Nah Ryu Jin is not as popular as Somi so I don't think YG is worried that much. After all, he still has BP to worry about.

    Somi level of popularity is really high for a person that didn't even properly debut in her own group except IOI. Imagine if she can continue debut, she might build more popularity. She is the IT girl.

    People knew ryujin because she was in BTS' highlight reel.
    JYP trainees said she was the most popular one before she auditioned for mix nine. Mix nine boosted her popularity but the show wasn't the sole reason for it.
    I think she would have been popular straight after debut without it.

    None of the Twice members were known before they debuted (same as BP or RV), i don't think big 3 need help from any trainee to make their groups successful lol

    Actually, I thought that was the whole deal between JYP and YG, seeing how they're close friends and all that: JYP will send a trainee to YG's Mixnine show and YG will do his best to make her a new 'Somi' by positive editing and exposure.

    That was the impression I got from watching the first episodes.
    Ryujin got such extremely positive editing and praise right from the start compared with the other trainees and what was shown, that that was 1 of my first thoughts: 'ah, soulmates JYP and YG have made a deal with eachother, to artificially raise up another JYPE trainee to 'ace' image and popularity'

    Especially since she wasn't that special or multitalented, it felt artificial and constructed to me.
    JYP and YG must have gotten the idea with how Somi got her popularity boost in Produce 101. And it worked: Mixnine may have failed, but Ryujin got the (undeserved?) exposure she needed and the popularity that comes with it.

    But the hype was a lot bigger because she was going to be in the group. Now people are probably disappointed and may or may not check them out. This, imo, definitely hurt that new group.
