I’ve stopped watching the full Idol Producer episodes (episode 3 was a whopping 2 hours and 40 minutes) but I’m still fast forwarding through the episodes, watching highlights clips, and their performances on Youtube.

I know they’re trying to pull the jealousy card here with Bai Yue Chu gladly eating food from the evil person, but come on, it’s pretty obvious that he doesn’t have any feelings for her. He just likes the food. Continue reading
