Korea's popular talent show Produce 101 is coming to Japan, and out of the one hundred and one idol hopefuls, there's a Filipino-Japanese named Takeru Gutierez!
In Produce 101, 101 idol trainees from different entertainment companies compete to land a spot in the top 11 through a public voting system (better call your cousins and titas based in Japan ASAP and tell them to support Takeru)! Soompi reports that the top 11 trainees from Produce 101 Japan will debut as an idol group in 2020. The show will premiere on September 25, 2019.
We can't stop gushing over Takeru's adorable introduction:
A fan account translated details from Takeru's profile in the official Produce 101 website and confirmed that Takeru is only 17 years old. His hobbies are dancing, mastering K-Pop dances, and singing English/Western songs. He also loves basketball.
We hunted for more snaps of Takeru and found out that he's a big BLACKPINK fan!
Here's another clip of Takeru:
