    Why there are sub unit member?? did all the member active. cause i saw on weekly idol that only 7 members that perform on weekly idol #helpmeplease

  • Ranceia

    As you can see,not all I.O.I members were included in “Whatta Man” and the sub-unit’s members were those who dont have their respective groups during I.O.I era.

    Yeonjung was in WJSN/Cosmic Girls

    Chaeyeon was in DIA

    Sejeong and Mina were in Gugudan.

    They were only 7 that time because it was the sub-unit.

  • Kimberly Patricia

    uhmm may i ask, what is “whatta man”? (i’m not a fan of ioi , so i just wantes to know about them :))

  • eren

    “Whatta Man” is one of their videos (MV)

    Still wondering.. Why is Somi 17 when her bday is 2001. Her birth year should 2000 right?

  • Dia

    @trexievillareal:disqus
    That is because of the Korean age, which is different from the Western age. Koreans say a new-born baby is already 1 year old. (because he/she stayed in him mom’s womb for almost 1 year, so yeah…)

    That’s why when you watch Korean show you’ll notice all the stars are listed 1 year older than their actual age.

  • Kimberly Patricia

    Thank you very much 🙂

    Somi was meant to be a part of Twice and is close friends with Chaeyoung and the other members of Twice & the Fantagio girls (Doyeon & Yoojung) are to be a part of WekiMeki (Fantagio’s new girl group)

    To the people who doesn’t understand the difference between face of the group and center.
    Face of the group: the most popular member

  • Mimi

    No. The competition (produce 101) already stated before the show even started that the girl group formed will only promote for 10 months. Has nothing to do with Twice at all. These girls all come from different companies so they’d never be able to keep up with I.O.I. and the schedules from their own companies. But this concept group was a way to form supposedly the best girl group, in fan’s eyes since the judges were the viewers/voters. It was also a good way for people who stick with just famous and popular companies and groups like JYP (Twice, Miss A, GOT7), YG (2ne1, Big Bang, BlackPink), SM (EXO, Red Velvet, SNSD) to notice smaller companies and other kpop groups that are also good from those companies.

    No problem 🙂 i will try to help by sending some more info if i got some hehe

  • Reese Tan

    Hi can you please change the info about Kyulkyung’s stage name being “Pinky”? If anything, her stage name should be simply “Kyulkyung”. I saw A LOT of people trying to point out that her official stage name during IOI was Pinky, I guess it’s because they referred to information from websites like this. The truth is, that was never the case. Pinky was just a nickname she called herself during her pre-debut days. Sometime before Produce 101, Pledis gave her the name Joo Kyulkyung which is the Koreanised version of her real name Zhou Jieqiong. The name “Pinky” stuck because Produce 101 fansubbers kept on using the name Pinky whenever they sub her dialogue, but that’s pretty much it.

  • jeremiah

    It’s a little too late but I believe Mina was also lead rapper and Doyeon was visual.

    Nayoung is act as Father figure in I.O.I
    While Chaeyeon act as Mother Figure in I.O.I

    and Sejeong and Chungha act like Ahjussi and Ahjuma in I.O.I

    Yeonjung :
    at first Yeonjung doesn`t live in I.O.I dorm instead she live with staff for a while.
    Yeounjung is the most Hyper Member (sometimes annoy Doyeon because her hyperness ^^)
    she can easily reach 3 octaves vocal range.
    she`s ex SM Entertainment Trainee.
    in the last day of Timeslip concert Sejeong thanks to Yeonjung because she save her throat (Because both of the are I.O.I main vocal but Yeonjung doing most of high notes part on IOI song)

    why do people like somi so much… she’s not even that talented and she acted so rude on produce 101. was super full of herself and whenever she made a mistake she acted like it wasn’t her fault. probably so popular because she’s half white but whatever. I don’t think she’s the worst but I just don’t think her talent is as good as most of the other members

  • morgan

    she was almost a part of twice, she was just the last to be eliminated

  • You’re right

    Better than you atleast. The members probably know that much but they’re not making their insecurities obvious to the public like you do. Because you know, that’s just “rude”, as you say that she is.

  • mary

    its not that people like her because she is talented but inspirational, and besides have u SEEN the other members , shes not the only one being rude but people focus more on her and judge everything she does. i have seen it ,it wasn’t only her and no she isnt full of her self. YOu sayign that hse popular because she’s half white is so freaking racist.Yes they’re some of the other members ‘are’ more talented than her, but talent isnt everything , i know that i dont like somi for her talent. and i love all the members. just because u dont like someone that doesn’t mean u only focus on them and take out all they’re bad strategies. And u saying this doesn’t make u much of a better person. just watch the show again , and this time dont only focus on her

  • qwertasdfgzxcvb

    I’m confused in Chungha’s sub unit position here is lead vocalist but in the sub unit page on this website she’s listed as main vocalist so what is her real position in the sub unit? Main vocal or lead vocalist?

  • Elephant

    She’s not ugly. Also even if she was she shouldn’t be judged based on how she looks she should be judged on who she is. Also she covers all aspects of kpop performing arts so her large amount of talent probably contributes to her popularity along side her sweet and out going personality.

  • The same thing happened to me with JBJ, History, and Speed. It feels like getting a beautiful balloon, just to have it popped in your face T__T

Talent and personality is basically how you win on these shows…but I mean yeah talent isn’t everything on a talent based show. 🙂 We aren’t trying to be better people, we just want to speak our opinions thank you, and we won’t focus on her since she’s not that great anyways.

    exactly, which is why I dont think it’s fair that a huge reason why she ranked first was because she had a reputation and a name already.

    Woahhhhh not a hater or anything love ioi but wtf i just watched somi’s auditions and in my opinion i think they were one of the worst ones.

    So apparently people cant tell the difference between an opinion and hate, people really can say what they think without people getting the wrong idea

  • mary

    So when someone cyber
    bullies someone and they say it’s an opinion, is no one suppose to step up? And if life was all about telling people what we think, no one would be cooperative. However your right. SORRY

  • bunbui

    I think weaknesses are only listed for those who have mentioned what their own weakness is, because it would be rude to just write what you think someone’s weakness is.

    Nayoung has a Instagram now its @nayoung_lim95

  • she or her family decided to change yeo to yeu when picking her romanized name, is still the same in korean

  • qwertasdfgzxcvb

    Really? Do you have a source?

  • Its Whatever

    she didn’t act rude, you just dislike her because of her popularity. She’s not even my favorite, she’s like 5th for me but you’re literally the one being rude for no reason. There are many talented people that were eliminated, it was basically a huge popularity contest so the whole “she’s not as talented, she’s just popular” argument that keeps flying around is irrelevant

  • Its Whatever

    It’s a popularity contest, of course she debuted because she’s popular. She received A rank and was demoted to B later on and was first place towards the end only because she was… Popular, who would have guessed? Using talent as a marker for this group get’s you no where. for example, my favorite person Sohye, was literally one of the least talented people to join and only got to debut because she was popular. I still love her and I think she deserved it, but there were people more talented then most of the i.o.i members that were eliminated. And the only reason Pinky, Doyeon, and Chaeyeon received popularity was for their looks. If it was based solely on Talent, both Soyeons would have made it as well as many others eliminated.

  • no, i’m just suggesting that that could be why some people spell it like that

  • ReVe

    Somi made her debut as a soloist with title track ‘Birthday’ on June 13
