The cast for season 2 of Mnet’s hip-hop reality show Unpretty Rapstar was unveiled last night, and it’s pretty amazing if you’re into female idols.

Sistar‘s Hyorin and Wonder Girls Yubin are two A-list idols that made the cut, but also included in the lineup is Fiestar‘s Yezi.

Truthfully, I always thought Yezi was really bad from listening to Fiestar’s flawless flops (It don’t matter if ya don’t like me!), but I’m confident that she’ll surprise everybody. After all, every idol in the biz would’ve applied for this, so there’s no reason the producers would pick a nobody like Yezi if she didn’t have some real skills.

Considering the way Unpretty Rapstar‘s first season turned almost its entire cast into overnight stars, I’m hoping that season two can do the same. MBC’s Secret Weapon with Jei already tanked (how is that iconic show being ignored by the public and receiving zero media attention?), so I’m pinning all my hopes and dreams on Unpretty Rapstar.

I’m also expecting that Queen of Pop Hyorin will slay us by unleashing her hidden rap talent (is there anything she can’t do?), while Yubin will serve us hip-hop drummer realness like the female Travis Barker.

The rest of the cast consists of Kasper from Play The Siren, Show Me The Money‘s Ahn Soo Min, and last but not least, singer-rapper Gilme, who most K-pop fans will already know because she’s been releasing music for so long to some success.

Now let’s all join hands in a prayer circle and ask the good lord above to finally make Fiestar famous.

Sidenote: How the fuck was Secret’s Hana Zinger Burger not cast in this? She almost needs the break more than Yezi does.

    I am so ready for Hyorin to slay. Matter of fact…I want a full member Sistar rap track. Their cover of “This Winter” was amazzzinngg.

    Kind of shocked Gilme wasn’t on season one. She has more acclaim than some of the girls that were featured.

    I’m auctioning off my soul for Yezi! FIESTAR need this.

  • Quang Phạm

    Meanwhile, Sistar’s supposed rapper is unemployed yet again.

  • Mattey

    Yezi was originally from the underground, so she’s returning to her roots. Yubin was as well, so both of them will probably slay. But Hyorin, I know you have no faults, but Starship should’ve put Bora in this so she can get some skill and people can talk less shit about her rapping skill (or more, because you know, it’s Bora). But even though Bora sucks ass at rapping I still stan the glorious queen because she’s just that hot. Here’s my facial expression right now, expressed through the Queen Of Being A Shitty Rapper, An Alright Dancer, And Is Just There For Her Legs.

      Bora is some sort of icon! She’s possibly the best “ugly” member in all of kpop. Dasom and Soyou are both miles ahead of her yet she still manages to snatch their weaves with no effort whatsoever

  • If this more exposure means more Hyemi, I’m all for it.

  • MolkangMolkang

    Poor Hana, all that new pink/orange/whatever hair dye has gone to waste…

    I’d be even more excited if Hana was in it but I’m already watching for Yubin, Yezi and to cure my curiousity over Hyorin.

  • hyorin is gonna be the jessi I feel it

  • what wonder would it be if livii was on it?

  • oneclearnight

    YAS. If any flop girl group deserves to be popular, it’s Fiestar.

    I didn’t watch S1 (only seen Jimin’s iconic Puss performance) but I will be for sure watching S2. The lineup is amazing!!!

  • Db

    Fuck this show.

    I demand justice for former Jewely member Ha ‘Baby J’ Jooyeon!!!

    The Nick Minaj of Korea (only not as trashy and a million times more amazing) is currently unemployed and deserves to be in the spotlight.

    • ADW

      I live to be as rachet as Baby J one day.

  • Mohamed Bermaki

    yezi is a queen !!
