Let me just state up front that nobody should take this article seriously, because as of now the only thing I see cited as a source is random netizens saying it. That said, this rumor that JYP Entertainment has been so taken by certain AKS contestants on ‘Produce 48‘ that he’s willing to pay ~$300,000 to buy out their contracts to join JYPE is too fun to ignore.
The best part? The one contestant speculated to be a part of that is fucking Chiba Erii. Hahahahaha.
Also Nanami Asai and Murase Sae, apparently.
This isn’t going to happen, but I don’t care, let’s imagine a future where the legends Chiba Erii and … say, Murakawa Bibian team up to conquer the world.
