MixNine
3 members of A.C.E were sent to MixNine.
Wow - Byeongkwan - Donghun

The Auditioning Process
For each audition YG visited the group's building and went to the practice room.
After they all introduced each other A.C.E began the performances they prepared for their audition.

Making a great impression, all 3 of them rated "A".
Donghun was put in the "debut bus" though.
A bus were trainees/idols were put that YG thought were most likely to debut.
Wow & Byeongkwan were put in a normal bus.

After making it into the bus, each of them were put into categories, from A - F.
Byeongkwan was ranked "9" (meaning debut)
Donghun was ranked "9" (meaning debut)
Sehyoon was ranked C

Live Shows
Throughout the show Byeongkwan stayed in the top 9. His lowest rank was #6 and highest #4.
His final rank was #4, meaning he would've got to debut.
Donghun had it a bit rougher. The first few ranks for him were between #23 to #15. But his last rank was #8 meaning he would've gotten to debut as well.
Wow had the hardest time. As he was put in the C category. His first rank was around #50. Fortunately his sexy choreo for the first performance was well received and he jumped up to #20. Ending his ranking on #11, very close to the top 9, sadly not high enough to debut.

Final Performance

The Unit

2 members of A.C.E were sent to The Unit.
Jun - Chan

The Audition Process
After introducing themselves to the judges, they performed their prepared stage.
After the stages the judges either ask you to perform again or you will be graded right after.
The grading are "boots".
You can get 1 boot from a judge and you are through, you can get 6 boots from the judges and are through.
You can also get 0 boots meaning you would be out of the competition.
Obviously others would think, the higher the boots the better you are.
You could also get a "Super Boot", during performances the audience watching are voting for you as well.
If you are captivating the audience you will easily get a Super Boot meaning you won't be graded by the judges, you are automatically in the next round.

After going through and awaiting for the audition process to finish, they are immediately receiving their first task.
Create a group to learn The Unit's title song 'My Turn'
Both Jun & Chan were in the 'Black Team' with Jun being the leader of it.

They had a bit of free time where they were called to perform on their own infront of everybody and get points for their performance, a little fun battle between the participants.


Live Shows
Jun had it rough. Altho he made it relatively far, he didn't have much screentime on and off stage performances.
Screenshot (258).png

His last rank was #21. Sadly not making it into the finale.
Chan altho he rose up slowly took the final #9 spot making it into the final group as Main Vocal in the finale.
Screenshot (259).png


His group won the 3rd challenge and got a MV for the song 'All Day'


Continuing from this onto the finale


Last place, #9, decision
