“Unpretty Rapstar 2” is proving to be a hot topic as news outlets are currently ablaze with news reporting on cast members being confirmed for the show. After reports regarding Wonder Girls’ Yubin and SISTAR’s Hyorin appearing on the show were released, Mnet’s producers were quick to deny all reports and claimed that no members have been confirmed yet.
Apparently among the sources for various rumors and reports regarding the cast members is a list of names posted by netizens. Recently posted on an online community site, the list claims that the confirmed cast members for “Unpretty Rapstar 2” are Ahn Soo Min, Kasper, GLAM’s Jiyeon, EXID’s LE, AOA’s Chanmi, Fiestar’s Yezi, Wonder Girls’ Yubin, and Hello Venus’ Lime.
Netizens believe that this is a leaked list of the real cast members of the upcoming season. However, this information has no verifiable source.
New reports state that a member from YG Entertainment’s upcoming girl group will be appearing in the show. The source for this report claims, “She has yet to debut but she is famous for her skills. It’s to the point that she is already considered a powerful candidate.”
Viewers are especially excited about news of the YG trainee due to the success of Bobby on “Show Me the Money 3.” Bobby was also a YG trainee who eventually won the rap competition.
Other reports have stated that Gilme and Fiestar’s Yezi are confirmed cast members.
Meanwhile, Mnet has come forth with a new statement saying, “We had interviews with around 100 individuals. We have not discussed any confirmations with any of them.” The producers admitted that they have indeed interviewed Wonder Girl’s Yubin, SISTAR’s Hyorin, the YG trainee, Fiestar’s Yezi, and more. Of course Mnet continues to stress that no members have been confirmed yet.
Looks like fans will have to stay tuned to find out the final line-up for the show. Who would you like to see on the show?
