JYP trainee and former contestant on Mnet‘s “SIXTEEN” Jun Somi recently joined Mnet’s latest survival show, “Produce 101.”
During the January 22 premier of the show, each of the contestants were ranked on their performances. Jun Somi, having already participated in a survival show before, showed off her experience when she took to the stage.
The other trainees remarked that she “would probably earn a B ranking.” However, the trainers gave Jun Somi an A ranking, much to their surprise. The other trainees wondered if her being a JYP trainee had anything to do with the ranking.
However, Jun Somi also earned first place in the post-broadcast popularity poll, proving that she showed an impressive performance to a general audience, as well. She was followed in the polls by contestants Kim Se Jung, Joo Gyul Kyung, and Jung Chae Yeon.
“Produce 101” is a show that pits 101 female trainees from 46 different agencies against each other for a spot in Korea’s first inter-agency collaboration girl group.
