4minute’s Jiyoon is reportedly set to join Unpretty Rapstar 2 after a possible elimination round that aired on September 1st at 11pm KST.
On September 1st, it was reported that Jiyoon will be entering the program after one of the original 11 members was to be eliminated during the live elimination episode. The first episode will allow the audience members to vote following the performance stages and will pick 10 female contenders to remain in the program.
With one set to leave the program, Jiyoon, who is known for her signing and rapping skills in 4Minute, is set to showcase her own hidden talent instead.
However, an official representing the competition show responded to the rumors and said, “The articles reporting Jiyoon will join and replace the one eliminated is unfounded and the details of that has not been discussed.”
With the completion of Show Me The Money 4, the second season of Unpretty Rapstar featuring 11 contestants will officially begin to air on September 11th at 11pm KST via Mnet.
