Of all the idol trainees that participated this first season, there have only been a few gems that South Koreans are going crazy over right now.
The primary purpose of MIXNINE is to discover hidden idol talent from entertainment agencies in South Korea. Fortunately for YG Entertainment’s CEO Yang HyunSuk, his efforts to discover new talent wasn’t for in vain after all. Here are the top five female idol trainees that made it worth his time during his search for new fresh talent.
1 Shin RyuJin
Shin RyuJin has been receiving immense praise and compliments from Yang HyunSuk himself. She has also received the most votes from viewers of MIXNINE as well.
2 Lee SooJin
Even before MIXNINE hit the television, her visuals were enough to attract lots of attention through teasers. Her fan base has grown significantly after her first showcase performance as well.
3 Lee JiEun
Although she only ranked as #77 on the votes ranking, her ‘My Number’ performance triggered an explosion in her popularity. Song MinHo was deeply impressed and praised her rap vocals.
4 Kim SoRi
Her genuine heart and passion for the love of music are apparent through her performances. And despite having been criticized on a level none like any other by Yang HyunSuk, she has managed to turn it around in her favor.

Last time, we’ve seen the first 36 boys from MIXNINE. Did you have anyone intriguing from the 36 boys? Haven’t found your one yet?
Well, do not be anxious if you haven’t decided who to support because there are another 36 boys left!!HAHA! It is a pretty tough procedure to go through all the profiles and match them while you are watching the program. But still, it is better than watching the program while you don’t have any idea who they are!
If you don’t really remember the first 36 boys, review them freely.
Both programs have proven to show talented idols with promising potentials. But what about the differences between them?
It turns out that the two reality TV survival programs have one very clear difference between them. It’s the lodging and accommodation that are provided for the idol trainees.
KBS’s ‘The Unit’ has already received loads of criticism from netizens for not following through with its alleged theme. While the show’s purpose, as the creators have said, was to reboot existing idols’ popularity into the spotlight, the show seems to be doing something completely different from it. Obscure idols and actors that the majority of people have never heard of are instead being forced into the spotlight. Existing idols that have tasted small success but couldn’t make a major breakthrough are being overlooked.
To make matters worse, netizens have quickly pointed out the enormous difference in the way idol trainees are being taken care of. Still images of both TV programs reveal that while MIXNINE trainees get to sleep in five-star hotels, The Unit trainees sleep in dormitory rooms with four beds that have been squeezed in. Of course, hotels aren’t everything but the problem is that for a TV program that is said to have had an investment of 20 Million USD, it doesn’t really add up how idol trainees are provided almost below average lodging and accommodation.
