On the February 5 broadcast of Mnet’s “Produce 101,” the trainees performed a group battle.
The first two groups performed Girls’ Generation’s “Into the New World.” Beforehand, they had a chance to receive private vocal lessons from the singer JeA of Brown Eyed Girls. Former F-ve Dolls member Heo Chan Mi sang “Into the New World” with Yoo Yeonjung.
Yoo Yeonjung received much praise from JeA for her singing ability. Heo Chan Mi also complimented her vocal talent saying, “She’s very good. I’ll give her that.”
About Heo Chan Mi’s singing, JeA commented, “You’re a little behind the beat. You seem like an established singer already. Just practice a little harder.”
Heo Chan Mi responded, “My throat didn’t feel good. So I let this one go.”
“Produce 101” is Mnet’s girl group project, gathering 101 trainees from 46 different agencies across the country in order to debut a girl group of 11 members. The show airs every Friday at 11 p.m. KST.
