Popular girl group survival reality show “Produce 101” is enjoying a flood of news and articles about their final 11-member group.
First of all, the group which has yet to be determined has already received numerous CF offers. So far seven CFs have been confirmed but there are a few more offers being positively reviewed. The profits from these seven CF deals is estimated to be around 1.4 billion won (approximately $1.2 million).
YMC Entertainment, the agency that will be managing the project group, has revealed that the group will be promoting their album in April and May. More specifically, the group will be performing their debut song on music shows in May at the earliest. This means that the group’s promotions might overlap with TWICE’s promotions as the JYP girl group is planning a spring comeback. Somi, who is considered a top contender as a member of the final girl group, was once a candidate for TWICE on the reality show “SIXTEEN.” Many fans are excited about the possibility of seeing Somi promote at the same time as TWICE.
Along with music promotions, the “Produce 101” final girl group has been confirmed to appear on future episodes of “Weekly Idol” and “Cool Kiz on the Block” (also known as “Our Neighborhood Arts and Physical Education”).
Finally, it has been revealed that the girl group’s debut song will be produced by hitmaker Ryan Jhun. He previously created SHINee’s “Lucifer,” Red Velvet’s “Dumb Dumb,” and “Fingertips” which was performed on the latest episode of the show.
