Welcome to DatJoeDoe Show's Joe's Blog!! This week he's teaching us about I.O.I and sharing some happy moments with 2NE1...

Someone confessed this week that they weren't a huge fan of I.O.I. I thought that was a little harsh, so why don’t we get to know the talented rookies properly:

Here are 9 facts about I.O.I

1. Kim So-hye came from an acting entertainment company and had no experience in singing or dancing but still made it into the group (Amazing)!

2. Jeon So-mi got eliminated on JYP’s elimination show for TWICE. Although she bounced back quite well taking the crown with the most votes to become centre of I.O.I.

3. Do Yeon and Choi Yoo-jung have been friends for eight years (since 3rd grade).

4. Kim Se-jeong became a Jellyfish trainee during a 3000-to-one open audition (Incredible)!

5. South Korean comedian, Yoo Jae Suk is a big fan of the group.

6. Jeon So-mi is from a Dutch, Korean and Canadian descent while also being the maknae at only 15. (She’s so young)!

7. Lim Na-young is known to make a face with no expression giving her the nickname of Stone Nayoung.

8. Pinky is the only Chinese member of the group, her real name is Zhou Jieqiong (I’ll just call her Pinky haha).

9. Kim Chung-ha was a former JYP trainee and has trained in dancing for eight years (So that's why she’s so good)!


2NE1's happiest moments

With the recent disbandment of 2NE1 - one of my favourite groups of all time - I decided to pay homage and create a video of the happiest moments they shared together. It’s a bittersweet walk down memory lane.
