Girls Planet 999’s Dayeon spoke out to “get justice” for herself because she wanted to showcase more in The Eve stage.
In episode 4 of Girls Planet 999, the team chose to cover the song “The Eve” (EXO). Although the girls had a good performance on stage, during the practice there were controversial situations, even the mentors were not satisfied.
It started when Sunmi asked the girls of The Eve team if they were satisfied with their position. Trainee Yoo Dayeon’s awkward smile got the attention of the mentors. They found out the team had inner problems due to this.
After the preliminary evaluation, the mentors were not satisfied with two important singing verses of Su Rui Qi and discussed whether to give that part to another trainee. Taking this opportunity, Dayeon wanted to give her thoughts but hesitated for a while, she turned her back and looked upset, making everyone confused.
When asked to speak, Dayeon revealed what happened without telling her group members beforehand. “Actually, when we distributed the singing parts, each of us only had one chance to choose. I wanted to challenge myself as the main vocalist or sing the first and second verse, but I had to sing another part. So I wanted to ask if I could try?”, Dayeon said, surprising the rest of the girls. They thought that Dayeon should have discussed with the team before speaking up to the judges.
The judges immediately pointed out the contestants’ problem was the lack of teamwork and they didn’t look like a team. The advisor also reminded Dayeon to discuss with the members before saying anything about the line split.
In the previous episode, Dayeon burst into tears when the plan didn’t go as she expected and said, “If I knew there was a day when we had to face each other, that day, I wouldn’t choose that.” In the opinion of many netizens, Dayeon has a lack of goodwill and does not understand herself when choosing a strong team, wanting to receive a hard part of the song but her ability is not that good to execute it.
After Dayeon’s “trick”, the girls sat down to re-divide the segment and write down the part they wanted to sing although they are contrary to what the leader of the group Fu Yaning has done before. Of course, Fu Yaning also has to follow this plan. “I have no opinion on this. Everyone didn’t say anything at first, so how would I know,” she said.
