Did anyone of you guys watched the first episode of Idol Up? Both Archidisign and myself did and we have so much to say! Here is a little introduction post for all of you guys not sure if you want to start it!
The episode starts off with the girls coming one at a time in the conference room, having to choose by THEMSELVES which team they want to be in: Ren Qi (Popular) or Qi Ren (Angry) team. It kind of sucks how a few idols had to change from Popular to Angry since not enough voters among the public voted for them. I can clearly see the Popular team will be favored by the PDs through out the variety show. Seriously, do you really need to make a variety show so dramatic? Most of the younger girls (except Zhao Liying) got into Angry team since they do not have a lot of exposure in the entertainment world yet.
Ning Ting is the first one to appear. She is well known to be a high maintenance lady who picks up a fight with everyone. When Zhao Li Ying enters the room, she innocently asks NT, “You didn’t wear a grown for today? I thought they told everyone to”, not seeing it since NT was sitting. NT did not say anything but looked a little pissed XD…
Brigitte Lin is among the last ones to enter the room, and everyone is extremely moved by her appearance. She is extremely famous and started in tons of sensational movies so everyone stood up, trying to hug her and thank her for her moving performances. Everyone even starts crying, surprised Brigitte would appear on a variety show XD… A cute moving moment.
Ouyang Nana, Guli Nazha, and Kristy Zhang are the youngest and all look like they have different personalities. I hope they will develop strong bonds together, been on the same team! OYNN looks the cutest to me, hehe :3…
The two teams are then welcomed by their hosts (He Jiong and Wang Han) and departs to the countryside to play a game. First they must pick helpers. It is a little sad how the Angry Team (AKA Blue Team) have less people willing to help them 😦 The Popular Team (AKA Red Team) wins.
Then, it is supper time! The food finally arrives on the table while the idols are asking each other questions. It is funny how Xie Na is the only one eating while everyone else is talking or listenning~. Guli Nazha has a touching (or in Archidisign’s words: over-exaggeratedly emotive) moment where she talks about the haters online.
Next is a small game before sleep. GLNZ succeeds instantly, which is really amazing. Zhao Liying however attempts multiple times without success. Everyone tease her :”D Oh well, we still love you girl!
End of today’s episode!
I personally found this episode really fun to watch despite the over dramatic moments and the sometimes awkward moments (understandable since it is the first meeting!). I will definitely continue watching 😀
