    Watching Produce 101 SEVEN members were on that show, including two from IOI. Wee Woo was a great song but they seem to have disappeared into the wilderness with a unit being promoted now.

    Is it because of Kyla do you guys think, what’s the point wasting their high profile and talent

    They aren’t that interesting and neither are the songs

    They are from good company ,have good songs, popularity I think problem is management .They couldn't make comeback because of Pinky ( idk what is her other name sorry) because she was on Chinese Produce 101 .But as I see from comments they are still popular in Korea it's just that there is like a wall that keeps them from hitting big.

    Wee Woo is excellent, like I always say if Twice released that 100m+ views, multiple music show wins

    They had a lot of hype and they squandered it with lackluster title songs and long delays between releases.

    It's also weird af to me that they're coming back with a subunit when they haven't even gotten their main unit properly established. I suppose it's possible that they're doing this because of the Kyla drama, but they brought that on themselves with poorly styling her, underutilizing her (so she seems both disliked AND useless, which is always a bad combo), and then not doing better when she was criticized.

    Maybe Pinky + Kyla stopped then in their tracks. Pledis seem a good company to me, once the Pristin members were asked about weight and they said Pledis don’t put pressure on them over that

    Yeah I reckon it’s the Kyla thing as well, but at the end of the day you can carry on. Lovelyz got their first win after that girl left due to anorexia

    This is their second year (I think) after debut, but they only have had two releases/promotional periods as a group.
    Unfortunately, no rookie groups can release a song then go into hibernation for a year or two and still expect to be widely popular if they aren't in a Big 3.

    They should've had 3 comebacks last year but y'all know what happened.

    It’s like YG had a word with their CEO and gave him some ‘advice’

    Amoung the groups that haven't "made" it, PRISTIN is the one I hope to do so most.

    They have all the elements that I find necessary in a group, expect perhaps a hit song. (I loved Wee Woo, but the public didn't respond.)

    They have many gorgeous members, and are interesting and engaging on social media and lives and are very talented.

    They just need that song that can connect them with the public.

    Plus.

    Dear god they have Pretty Chipmunk.

    She must succeed. She must or I'll kill someone.

    Their songs. Watch the group in Produce 101 when they performed Bang. They should be going into that style of music. Instead they're trying to do gimmicky music like Twice. They have more attention than most girl groups because of the IOI members, but their music hasn't done them any favors. Give them the kind of songs After School would have done and they will do better. Look at the rookie group Idle. They didn't come out with some cutesy or gimmicky concept. And they have more attention than other IOI/Produce 101 groups. Weki Meki/WSJN/Gugudan/DIA are all post IOI groups that have underperformed because they haven't had the right direction in their music. I think Gugudan got the right idea with The Boots, but they just have to do more of that kind of style.

    I wasn't that keen on their songs, tbh.
    But I do agree that they have potential.
    I think Pristin V might not be a bad idea, for the girls chosen to be in it anyway. I suspect it's not a real sub-unit. The company wants to cull the less popular half of the group. If Pristin V does well, then that'll become permanent.
