Recommended Posts

The MV - I like this much better than having them all dance on a stage

Is the show subbed yet? I'm itching to watch it subbed lol

 

Not yet since it just aired yesterday, but I guess you should subscribe to both those channels, they might be on Twitter too if you want to follow

Random but the MV reminds me to a soft drink commercial lol. It's really cute.

 

well there is that placement...this is the third show I'll be subjecting myself to where they will be shoving a drink in my face every minute of an episode

Can someone tell me why they dropped out "PICK ME" from the lyrics??? This is almost borderline crime-ish. IP S2 did include it.

 

Mnet openly liked IP2 posts on social media, maybe this time around Tencent is the one without a license

I think I'm becoming obsessed with the two moles under Xia Zhiguang's eyes, need to look up more X-Nine stuff now. I like this song

 

 

 

The only one I really know is Xiao Zhan...is Xia Zhiguang also in Oh My Emperor too? I've been meaning to watch that. Were the rest of them also busy acting prior to joining Produce Camp? 

 

How Wajijiwa's management? I know people have been bashing them for sending the boys and Zhennan to Produce Camp, do they also prioritize film/television over music?

Ep2 was not bad. 

 

The battles were pretty fun to watch. 

 

The "Baby" group had an insane amount of visuals. 

I wouldn't mind if any of them made it to the final 11. 

 

That being said, Zhou Zhennan at #1 was expected. 

But tbh, I don't really get center vibes from him. 

And the top 11 pretty much was all of X-NINE. I expect that'll change once people get to know more of the boys. 

 

Li Xingyi at 23 unsure.png Would have hoped he'd be higher

He Junxiong was at 14 I think...hoping he rises 

 

Looking forward to next ep!

 

Oh My God, the Baby group was sooooo adorable, I just want to adopt them all, especially He Luoluo and his stupid winks. I had a smile on my face the entire time watching them, but it's so weird listening to a Justin Bieber song in Chinese.

 

The battles were so much better than the girl version, because instead of having nobodies fighting for the 11 A spots, all the newcomers were previous idols. It was both sad and dramatic. Even though none of the trainees had to get kicked out in the audition stage, seeing the newcomers leave, because they didn't get an A is super sad too.

 

I dunno, I feel like I'm going to like the audition episodes way more than the rest of the show like I did with the girl version. 

 

These Chinese platforms are seriously coming down hard on reuploaded videos on Youtube. I don't know why they can't upload it on their own channel and then open it up to subs like a lot of dramas.

Ugh no subs yet? At least the episodes are complete. I guess I’ll watch it without subs then lmao.

 

It's already posted on Google Drive and they just added it to Facebook

So I started to watch ep 1 subbed and it's surprisingly VERY entertaining? I really liked the beginning when they enter the "camp" and get the 3 surprises (uniforms, family/managers and bags) and then go to the dorms. Can't believe they're really sleeping in those lame bunk beds tho lmao.

 

I also find the system refreshing? I get that demoting to F to the ones that chose A but didn't get A in the mentor evaluation is kinda cruel but pretty original compared to the usual produce system. I didn't understand the age order thing tho. So they enter according to age order or company? Because it seemed like both, but not all the trainees from a same company are the same age so ?? The last one to enter was a 26 y/o guy, so considering there's a 32-33 there shouldn't he be the last one to enter then?

 

The mentors were all gorgeous in their 20s? o_o But even now in their 40s (?) they look great tbh.

 

The way they came out is average age, and a lot of them like the dance team are all from different companies. I think they had a few days to come up with a performance together, but surprisingly they looked better as a team than some of the trainees from the same company. 

 

The last mentor that came out is actually 54 yrs old.

 

Did you watch PD101 China with the girls? In that one after everyone auditioned they brought in a few girls who wanted to try being in a girl group, but had no training whatsoever and if they win a battle with an A, one of the lower contestants would get kicked off the show. In ep2 of this one, they bring in ex-idols including Casper's former groupmate from Cross Gene and Yang Feitong from Idol Producer. They also have to battle an A, and if they get an A, they can stay, but if they don't they have to leave. It gets more intense.

 

I still prefer the way iQiyi films their day to day activities, remixes their songs and do the stages in general, but PD101 China and Produce Camp does have a more entertaining audition process.

So they calculate the average age from each company's group of trainees? For example the average age for wjjw boys was 20 but I know not all of them are 20. It's a weird system but at least it's original.

 

Yes, I watched the girls version too and I remember in the first episode some girls were eliminated already (like one of the sunshine members I think? And another one from Sunnee's company iirc). In this case at least they aren't kicking out trainees from the very first episode but the competition is still intense. I agree that iQiyi is better at portraying the daily lives/bonding of the trainees but the evaluation system of pd101 is much more exciting with all the challenges and stuff.

 

I hope PC keeps my interest though. S1 started really good but eventually it became kinda boring and stopped watching around the ep 7-8 :/

 

Also, random but I noticed that there's no Yuehua trainees this time. It's the first time Yuehua doesn't send trainees to a produce show? At least in China (in Korea they didn't send for S1 either afaik). There's also many companies that usually send trainees to IP like OACA, Mavericks, Gramarie, etc that didn't send trainees either. Aside from Banana and Qin's, most of the companies weren't that well known for me.

 

I think after the contract dispute and threats of lawsuits for Xuanyi and Meiqi last season, Yuehua will never send their trainees to another Tencent show likewise Tencent will probably never want another Yuehua trainee. There's bad blood between them now. A lot of the companies probably focus on film & television.

When your survival show worlds collide...He Luoluo from Produce Camp, Chen Tao from QCYN and Ling Chao from Idol Producer all got accepted into Shanghai Theatre Academy

 

He Luoluo placed #1 in Zhejiang, #20 in the country

Chen Tao placed #5 in Shanghai, #10 in the country

Ling Chao placed #1 in Hebei, #39 in the country

They'll be classmates if they all choose to attend the same school, don't know how many other film schools they applied for, but I'm anticipating this new generation of actors. I feel like a proud mom watching them grow through these survival shows, they're so young, but already have such bright futures. 

 

Is He Luoluo supposed to take his college entrance exams while he's on Produce Camp though???

On witch Chinese Webside can I watch the show and when is the 3 Episode out??

 

I love Zhennan in this show but the trailar for Ep 3 is scaryunsure.png

 

Link for ep 3 above, there's a channel that also live streams it on Youtube the following day.....it might be tears of happiness, because I saw a bts video and it seems like his team was the one that moved into the A room, which is the the nicer dorm room for 8 people

HUGE RANT AHEAD:

 

Can the Produce Camp team please hire a new group of people to remake their songs? I'm reminded of why I only really liked 2 performances from PD101 China girl version. I mean they literally turned one of my favorite songs All About You into shit.

 

When I was watching the Lesion team I kept thinking where do I know this song from? it sounds so strange, but I know this song, took me until the end of the performance to realize what song it was. Then I scoured Youtube to find the original to cleanse my ears. 

 

I mean, how can you turn this song

 

 

 

into a dance synth track???

 

Basically every other song after that had the same dance synth vibe. There is always something so off about their songs, it's driving me crazy.

 

After ep 3 I stand by what I said regarding Tencent's auditions (first 2 episodes) >>>> any other survival show, but I'm going to bow down to iQiyi's song remixers or whatever they are called. They can turn any whack song, many of which I thought wtf are they thinking before seeing it being performed, into something bearable. Just watching the same exact songs being performed on both QCYN and AFO (Turn Up and Spirit of the Knight) you can tell how much better the songs sound on QCYN. Tencent basically ruins songs and makes you appreciate the original much more.

Just when I thought Zhao Zhenghao would be the most awkward doing this

 

 

 

 

Along comes Yu Haoran...I can't stop watching this, he is so adorably awkward

 

 

 

 

So anyway, Zhao Zhenghao got a lot of focus in the 2nd episode, he totally got a Nongnong (IP) edit at the beginning of the episode and then a Yang Chaoyue (PS101 China) edit towards the end. Do you think he's going to make the final lineup?

Tencent's song game is weak AF, nothing has changed.

 

EXACTLY....with all the money they have, how is there no improvement at all? It's almost as if they took a bunch of really talented kids and made them seem less talented. That's why the only performances of Tencent's I'll ever rewatch are probably the audition performances.

For anyone who knows Top Combine (I'm only slightly familiar with them), did Xiao Wu complete his military service in Korea? I know another member left and there's like zero chance of them reuniting.

Yao Chen is the JYP guy? Weird that he's gonna be eliminated so soon. But then again, this is not Korea where company stans would keep him afloat. Plus he doesn't seem to get a lot of screentime in the first place idk.

 

He got good screen time in ep3, I think he'll be fine. Might even get a lot of CP fans who will ship him with Zhou Zhennan, they're besties who trained together. Their friendship is really endearing.

Is Zhennan one of the yongest or the yongest becaus in the episode i don't really see him calling the other contastens gege

Only the ones he is allredy close with 

 

Also i cant finde the show on Wikipedia do anybody know why??

 

sry for my englisch not my languageunsure.png

 

He's among the youngest, there might be 4 or 5 a little younger than him. 

 

Only found Wiki Chinese ver https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%89%B5%E9%80%A0%E7%87%9F2019

 

China's not strict about age hierarchy so there's no need for anyone to call someone older gege or jiejie unless you feel like it. You can simply call them by their name or if you are close enough with them even by their abbreviated nickname like Nannan for Zhou Zhennan or Guanguang for Xia Zhiguang.
