Well even in MBK she needs a comeback first for us to see how well her popularity is fairing. Anticipating that following the end of Kpop Star!
One thing for sure, being a soloist is definitely not at an advantage these days. Girl groups are such a big trend so if Shannon went to any other agencies, I would want her to start in a girl group first.
They already divided the two gg teams: Soomin/Minju/Ara vs. Sohee/Chrisha/Hyerim. I wouldn't complain if they pitched the two teams against each other. At least that's fair for them and for other contestants. I think they might have clarified the format in this episode but there are no subs yet.
Shannon really chose the tough route deciding to become a Kpop idol. Like a lot of people say, she has talents to be something more than that (like a musical actress). The Kpop world is rough and being from the big 3 and being from other companies both have their pros and cons.
Should be like that, two trios and boyfriend really a though opponent. They should pit trios againts trios and the winner againts each other find 1 winner. While the lost trios being split as solo againts two other eliminated candidate to find last one for top 4
A x B
C x D
trios E x trios F
top 4, A, C, one from trios E, one from eliminated battle B x D x F1 x F2 x F 3
I will hit my head to the floor if both trios goes through to top 4, it doesnt make sense if they keep it until the end. 'Come on gg is unfair!' kpopstar 'Alright we made it trio' lol
The irony Shannon as a kid saw kpop as one beautiful thing since she watch BoA and SNSD. When she did become one, kpop not as beautiful as see is. And yeah being soloist is hard especially when there is two top vocalist with similiar style like Shannon, both IU and Ailee. Honestly Im bit tired when every her performance being comparing to them is not like korean will 'give up' their pride to see someone can match both of them on term of technique vocal. The main reason why korea didnt let her taste success with every ridicilous reason.
