After “Qing Chun You Ni” (青春有你) aired its finale in April, the female version of the show was already rumored to be underway. During this period, there were already several rumors regarding the mentors for the second season. A few weeks ago, the list of rumored mentors included Luhan, Victoria Song, Hebe Tien, BLACKPINK’s Lisa, and NINE PERCENT’s Xiao Gui.

Lisa from K-pop group, BLACKPINK, was also the first person confirmed to join the second season of “Qing Chun You Ni” as a mentor. This is the third series of the “Idol Producer” franchise, but due to the NRTA restrictions, they had to change the name so that it didn’t have any reference to “idol”.
Lisa also filmed a short clip announcing her addition to the show. She starts off the clip in Mandarin saying, “Hello, ‘Qing Chun’ producers. I am Lisa. I will be joining ‘Qing Chun You Ni’ season 2 as your mentor.” The host then says previous mentors were all very strong and asks Lisa if she has any new moves. Lisa then challenges everyone to do the “wave” moves. The host asks her if she has any confidence being a mentor. Lisa responds, “Confidence this big, Lisa, jia you!” Then she is asked if learning Chinese is hard, Lisa says, “Too hard!” a few times.
Once the news about Lisa joining the show was confirmed, netizens were ecstatic and left comments saying, “Oh my gosh, finally coming to China to develop her career, looking forward to it.”, “Precious speaking Mandarin is too cute!”, “I want to ask if we can vote for the mentors? (My god, I am a girl, how can I like Lisa so much?”, “Must follow this season of ‘Qing Chun You Ni’.”, “For Lisa, I will be watching this show.”, “Who doesn’t love a pretty girl? Cute personality and dances well.”, “Lalala Lisa’s Mandarin is too cute.”
