The latest preview for Mnet's upcoming survival show starts with the 99 participants, who are split into "K" (Korean), "C" (Chinese), and "J" (Japanese) groups according to their nationalities, entering the set for the first time.
The 99 participants started examining each other as they watch the other groups perform. Comments such as "Since K-pop belongs to the K-group, I think the other groups wouldn't have a chance," "She's the pride of the J-group," and "The visuals and physics of the C-group were impressive."
The newly released teaser for Mnet's "Girls Planet 999" also showed an intense scene during the first meeting of the girls.
In particular, Chinese participant Fu Ya Ning was asked to say a few words to her fellow contestant Choi Yu Jin (a member of CLC). She surprises everyone on set by stating, "We go up! But you don't."
These were just simple words but they had a big impact on the participants, especially on the K-pop masters, Sunmi and SNSD Tiffany.

It can be seen that CLC Yujin's expressions suddenly changed after hearing that from Fu Ya Ning. On top of that, Tiffany and Sunmi immediately lost their smiles, signaling that they didn't like what the Chinese contestant said.
Tiffany and Sunmi later trended on Twitter, with fans talking about how their facial expressions quickly changed after the Chinese trainee dissed CLC Yujin, and expressing their fear of the two well-known female idols.
Yeo Jin Goo went on to say that either all of the three members will move to the next round, or all three of them will be eliminated, shocking the participants.
Mnet's "Girls Planet 999" will start broadcasting on Aug. 6 at 8:20 p.m. KST.
