First of all, Madan will take you back to 2018, the first season of CHAUNG, which was called PRODUCE 101 China at the time. There were 2 Thai girls who competed in this season and eventually debuted in the girl group Rocket Girl 101. These 2 girls are ‘Sunnee – Kewalin Boonsatta’ and ‘Mimi Lee – Promwilai Leesiriroj’. Both of them have many outstanding abilities, like singing and dancing. That is the reason why they were in the top listed trainees since earlier in the competition. Sunnee debuted at the 8th spot and Mimi debuted at the 9th out of 11 people who debuted in this girl group.

However, no need to be disappointed because the following season of CHUANG 2020 had a Thai trainee who had created a lot of hilarity in this show. That girl is ‘Nene – Pornnappan Pornpenpipat’ who has a lovely and cheerful character. She has performed in the first stage by singing the song ‘Best Part’ by Daniel Caesar feat. HER, which impressed all the coaches a lot and got Top 3 in vocals. Since the first Ep., Nene has shown everyone her determination. Even if she has a language barrier, she fought until she passed to the final round. Eventually, Nene debuted on the 5th spot out of 7 girls in the girl group Bon Bon Girl 303.

If there are Thai trainees in the next season of CHUANG, don’t miss out and cheer for them in the future.
