Fans Create Male Version Of I.B.I With Former “Produce 101 Season 2” Trainees
“Produce 101 Season 2’s” former trainees Takada Kenta, Kim Yong Gook, Kim Tae Dong, and Kim Sang Gyun have been brought under the spotlight again by their devoted fans.
In “Produce 101 Season 1,” trainees who were eliminated by a slim margin later formed a project girl group called “I.B.I,” acronym of “I Believe It.” The members included April’s Yoon Chaekyung, Han Hyeri, Kim Sohee, Lee Soohyun, and Lee Haein.
I.B.I was active together for a limited time, but gained plenty of love from their fans who were disappointed that they did not make it to the top 11 in “Produce 101 Season 1.”
A similar second place group might be formed in “Produce 101 Season 2” as well, as fans are supporting the formation of boy group “JBJ (Just Be Joyful),” a nickname created by fans who want former trainees Takada Kenta, Kim Yong Gook, Kim Taedong, and Kim Sang Gyun to come together as a group.
Fans even informed the trainees about the popular support for “JBJ” through V Live and social media comments. It remains to be seen if the wishes of fans will be answered and “JBJ” will become a reality.
