Note: No, people. No Invincible Youth 3 has been planned/is planned/or being planned. This is just a what-if for me, so don’t go looking for news articles for an announcement. For your information and guidance, please. 🙂
Yes. Invincible Youth was like a bullet train that hit me hard (you’ll find my thoughts on Season 1 in the earlier posts of my blog: https://ayoherecomestrouble.wordpress.com/2013/02/28/invincible-youth). So yesterday, I decided to watch an episode of Season 2, particularly Episode 5 where Sunny and Suzy go back to Yoochiri and Sunkyu gives the Giant Maknae a tour of the old idol village, introduces her to Village Chief Noh, Village Chief Wangoo, and the famous Road Lee, and reminisces about the times they spent as G7. I understand that Season 2 was not exactly the hit Season 1 was, and some fans have been clamoring for a Season 3 to absolve the “sins” of the previous season. I was looking around for some discussions on KPop forums on what some fans think on how the G7 should be constituted. One comment that amused me was forming a G12(!) with the original G7 (sorry to Jooyeon, Sori, and Victoria if that would be the case) and the G5. Some believe that IY sunbaes such as Sunny, Hara, Hyoyeon, and Yewon should be part of the Gn while having new members. Some believe a spin-off having a B7, or Boy 7 should happen.
All of what i’ve stated above are interesting ideas and what-ifs, but in my opinion, I believe that the new Gn should be a clean break from the past. That would mean as much as I would love to include Yewon (because I believe she was really trying her best in Season 2) and Sunkyu (due to her experience, and the bridge that would connect all seasons together, heck, she could even be the new host!), I think this might cause comparisons with the previous seasons.
So if I were the PD for a possible IY3, this is how I would cast it: Continue reading
