‘Unpretty Rapstar 2‘ is set to air next month, and according to a recent report, Yubin of the Wonder Girls and Hyorin of SISTAR are among the cast.
The pair have also participated in their jacket filming for the show. As the main rapper of Wonder Girls, Yubin is planning on fully displaying her rap talents. Meanwhile, Hyorin is taking this opportunity to show a different side of herself from her vocalist image.
According to an inside source, the final members for the show have not been confirmed yet. However, individuals who have confirmed their participation in the show have finished their solo jacket filming.
However, Mnet released a statement saying nothing has yet been finalized.
After reports confirming the two stars’ appearances were revealed, a representative of the show denied the reports to news outlet OSEN. They stated, “There are no confirmed members. We haven’t filmed yet. ‘Unpretty Rapstar 2′ is planned to air in September, so we plan on starting filming during the middle or end of August. Producers will reveal the cast members around that time.”
Of course, that means nothing because it wasn’t a denial. It read more like a “u diq” for spoiling their announcement.
On one hand, yay, more Yubin and more sour Hyorin faces! On the other hand, I don’t want to see Yubin doing a Lil’ Cham, nor do I really want to see Hyorin on this show at all. I mean, I’ll wait until the final casting is released, but if they omit the few non-idol female rappers out there in favor of an established star singer, that just seems cruel and unnecessary. Then again, I suppose this isn’t like ‘Show Me The Money‘ where there’s open auditions to find talent. ‘Unpretty Rapstar’ is just throwing names together and shamelessly creating competition/drama, and Hyorin has resting bitch face, so all of this sort of fits thus far.
In addition to those two big names, it was also reported that FIESTAR‘s Yezi would be joining the show, as well as an unnamed YG Entertainment trainee. They really need to put a spoiler alert on that shit, because they’re basically announcing
the company that paid off Mnet the winner upfront.
