Additional episodes will be added when they come out
Jonghoon definitely shows a lot of promise so if Cheolwoo’s not the winner, I’m putting my money on Jonghoon. He’s left a good impression on the first episode. Like damn he can pose! Tae Eun probably also has a good chance because of his experience. Cheolwoo hasn’t impressed me so far but of course we’ve barely seen anything and I’m sure he’ll kick butt later. If not, I will be super surprised as well

Yesss I agree with everything you said.
The age difference confuses me. I don’t know how KNTM normally distributes the ages of their contestants, but it seemed weird to me pairing that 29-year-old guy with the 16-year-old girl.
Yeah I’m not going to complain about Lee Cheolwoo being there (he’s heaven to the eyes) but he doesn’t need to be on the show. The prize is nice, yes, but he doesn’t need the spotlight since he already has it. I don’t understand Korean very well but I could tell in watching episode 1 that the other models see him as a huge competition. Idk if that will impact them in a good way or not. There really should have been a requirement for a certain level of obscurity in choosing the contestants.

Exactly! They’ve hyped this show up for months and released so many snippets of the show before it actually started. It was so confusing! But yes finally it’s started.
I agree they could have done better with the selection. They eliminated some in the first episode that I would have loved to see… Kim Sungchan, Lee Seokchan, and Kim Hyeonjin specifically. (Hyeonjin I was SO looking forward to see when I saw the list for the preliminary lineup….He needs to get his name out there). I’m sure there were so many good applications that we didn’t know about. Also, there’s a huge experience gap between the contestants. Like really? You’re putting Lee Cheolwoo up against some of these guys?
I hope we’re pleasantly surprised. So far I’m rooting for one of the underdogs, Shin Jaehyuk, because I’m liking his personality but it’s still too early to say anything for sure.
What do other people think about KNTM GUYS&GIRLS so far?
