“LOUD” Continues Casting Round As Contestants Are Drafted Into Either JYP Entertainment Or P Nation
On the August 7 episode of SBS’s “LOUD,” the battle between Park Jin Young and PSY to draft the contestants into their respective agencies, JYP Entertainment and P Nation, continued.
As revealed last episode, the contestants were first divided into three groups according to their rankings from advance fan votes. Each contestant would have a chance to show off his skills in front of Park Jin Young and PSY, and the two judges would decide whether to make him a casting offer. Each judge has 10 cards to cast contestants out of the 22 remaining contestants. If a contestant received offers from both agencies, then he could choose between the two himself. If a contestant did not receive an offer, he would remain “on hold” until the end, when it would be decided whether he was eliminated or cast into one of the agencies.
The casting for last episode was as follows:
- Kim Dong Hyun: P Nation
- Lee Su Jae: On hold
- Eun Hwi: P Nation, JYP Entertainment (cast by both agencies but chose P Nation)
- Daniel Jikal: P Nation
- Tanaka Koki: On hold
The casting for this episode is as follows:
- Lim Kyeong Mun: On hold
- Cheon Jun Hyeok: P Nation
- Park Yong Geon: JYP Entertainment
- Zo Doo Hyun: JYP Entertainment
- Yoon Min: JYP Entertainment
- Kang Hyun Woo: On hold
- Lee Ye Dam: P Nation, JYP Entertainment
- Oh Sung Jun: P Nation, JYP Entertainment
- Mitsuyuki Amaru: JYP Entertainment, P Nation
The new top three from the advance fan votes was also revealed this week: Okamoto Keiju (No. 1), Lee Gye Hun (No. 2), and Cheon Jun Hyeok (No. 3). The lowest-ranked contestant was Park Yong Geon at No. 22. The final casting round of “LOUD” will air next week.
