During the survival show, the 99 members all showed incredible talents in all areas – may it be singing, dancing, rapping, and songwriting.

Among them, only the Top 9 were given the opportunity to debut, including Kim Chaehyun, Huening Bahiyyih, Choi Yujin, Kim Dayeon, Seo Young Eun, Kang Yeseo, Ezaki Hikaru, Sakamoto Mashiro, and Shen Xiao Ting — who was also confirmed as the members of the new girl group Kep1er.

As Chaehyun was voted as No.1, it was expected that she would fulfill the position of the center, similar to how other Mnet's survival show worked. There are also expectations if she will become the main vocalist of the group – which is one of the reasons how she captured the love of viewers.
