A Recap of Produce X 101 Episode Four

“No More Dream” vs Blood Sweat and Tears”

Last week we saw the performance of the song “No More Dream.” The other BTS song that was covered was “Blood Sweat and Tears.” During the vocal class prior to the performance, Park Yoon-sol was scolded for having weak vocals. This caused a switch in the center position, making Moon Hyun-bin become the new center because of his more reliable singing. Their performance went well but lost by over double the amount of votes. The most voted for was Kim Hyun-bin, with 285 votes.

“Trespass” vs. “Dramarama”

The two Monsta X cover groups went next. The group covering “DRAMARAMA” were one of the many on this episode coached by Monsta X member Jooheon by surprise. The group’s dance practice went well, with Kim Kwan-woo looking like the star of the group. The “Trespass” group had trouble with the dance and were told that they were the worst team so far. Wei Yi Zue’s trouble forgetting his parts were highlighted. They ended up winning, with Zi Yue having a pretty good chunk of the live crowd on his side.

“Adore U” vs. “Clap”

Seventeen’s “Adore U” and “Clap” were the next two covered songs. For “Adore U,” the member of the group Park Sun-ho made Jooheon emotional as they trained together in the past. Choi Jin-hwa worked better as a center so he replaced Wang Jyun Hao. Despite being the leader for his group, Jin-hwa got the least amount of votes out of everyone on his team. The group for “Clap” had trouble learning the dance routine. Ham Won-jin practiced saying “Clap!” extensively because he was told he wasn’t enthusiastic enough. “Clap” won this face-off, with Ham Won-jin and Kim Dong-yoon getting tons of votes.

“Energetic” vs. “Light”

A success story of Produce, Wanna One, was covered next. A sad story was shared during the “Energetic” group’s training time. Anzardi Timothee talked about how he’s been distracted since the show has started because his grandmother passed away shortly before he left for the show. For “Light,” Jun Uehara was doing lots of high notes. The “Energetic” group had lots of fan favorites, with three members going above the 100 vote count. This gave them an easy victory.

“Girls Girls Girls” vs. “Lullaby”

The performances from the two GOT7 groups were easily the most interesting on the episode. During the performance of “Lullaby,” the group’s main vocalist Song Yu-bin’s mic pack disconnected, ruining the performance. Afterward, a fellow member of Yu-bin’s label, Kim Kook-heon came out and was sobbing, telling people about how hard working with Yu-bin is. After the two teams talked backstage, they agreed that the “Lullaby” team could get a second chance to perform. Their second chance went without any major issues. The other group performed “Girls Girls Girls,” with Kang Hyeon-soo being described as an ace of the team. The “Girls Girls Girls” team won with Choi Byung-chan and Kim Sung-hyun doing the heavy lifting.

“Where You At” vs. “Dejavu”

Two groups that covered NU’EST W’s music went next. After the first group performed “Deja Vu,” member Kim Min-seo got emotional while describing how it might be his last performance. The group that played “Where You At” had trouble with some of the notes when practicing. By quite a huge margin, the group for “Where You At” defeated “Dejavu.”

“The 7th Sense” vs. “Boss”

The final performances of the episode were of NCT U songs. The first NCT U song, “The 7th Sense” had trouble with their rap and dancing at first. Jooheon said they lacked confidence when they rapped, and Bae Yoon-jeong was very critical of them. They practiced a lot and improved before performance time. The “Boss” team was basically set to win, with it being the “Avengers” that Son Dong-pyo drafted on the episode before. Kim Yo-han was worried about being given a rap part because he is a vocalist, but when he rapped in front of the trainers he absolutely killed his verse. Yo-han cried after the performance because of how they all helped each other out. “Boss” won by another longshot, with Kim Yo-han getting 170 votes, and Cha Jun-ho getting 102.

This Episode’s Influence on The Next

At the end of the episode, people looked at their ranks and thought about the cut-off for the first elimination round. It was also unveiled that the group with the highest score would do a special performance on music show “M! Countdown.” The group that got this opportunity was the one that performed BTS’ “No More Dream,” as they received 597 votes. Individually, Kim Hyun-bin was the most voted for in this activity.

Next week the first wave of trainees will be eliminated from the show. There was no ranking this week, but if you want to see last week’s it’s available on the episode three recap.
