In the final episode, Xuanyi competed against another WJSN member, Meiqi. Xuanyi failed to gather more votes than Meiqi and ended up in the second position. However, she and Meiqi earned the chance to join the idol group Rocket Girls. Xuanyi endured difficult times at earlier stages of Produce 101 China. Xuanyi’s ranking in Produce 101 China fluctuated every week. In the end, she was able to get rid of her fear of performing on stage and finally showed her talent.
Debut With Rocket Girls 101
Sadly, several days before the release of new singles, Xuanyi’s Korean label management, Yuehua Entertainment, decided to terminate her participation in Rocket Girls. There were contract disputes between the Korean and Chinese label management resulting in the end of Xuanyi’s participation in Rocket girls.
Xuanyi enjoyed some valuable time while traveling to Japan. She posted several pictures of her Japan trip when she shopped for clothes or simply enjoy winter in Japan.
Participated In Produce 101 China
Starship Entertainment and Yuehue Entertainment confirmed the participation of two WJSN Chinese members in Produce 101 China in March 2018. Meiqi’s participation meant a temporary hiatus from WJSN’s promotional activities. In the spin-off program, both Meiqi and Xuanyi were expected to hit the ground running and strolling to the top of the vote. However, it wasn’t as easy as expected. Meiqi had to struggle to maintain her performance and collect a high number of votes.
Indeed, Meiqi and Xuanyo reached the finals and became the two trainees with the highest vote. Meiqi gathered more than 185 million votes and ranked first in the competition. She was visibly in tears at the final announcement. Meiqi, Xuanyi, and other Chinese Produce 101 contestants made an idol group called Rocket Girls. Meiqi was absent from WJSN activity to focus on promoting with the project group.
Debut With Rocket Girls 101
Meiqi debuted with Rocket Girls in June 2018 with the titular single “Rocket Girls.” However, Meiqi’s participation in Rocket Girls was short-lived. Both Meiqi and Xuanyi left the group in August 2019 after barely three months of activities. It seemed that there was a conflict between Starship Entertainment-Yuehua Entertainment and Tencent Entertainment; the two were Meiqi and Xuanyi’s Korean label management and Chinese label management.
Starship Entertainment-Yuehua Entertainment wanted simultaneous participation in Cosmic Girls and Rocket girls while Tencent insisted on exclusive two years contracts with Rocket Girls only. In the end, Yuehuea announced the return of Meiqi to Cosmic Girls. They were reunited after several years of solo activities.
Solo Debut In China
Meiqi made a solo debut in China by releasing her debut single “Hellos” in January 2019. The track was used as one of the original soundtracks of the Chinese science fiction movie The Wandering Earth. Meiqi’s first extended play, Jiang, was released on April 23rd, 2019, and quickly became a sensation.
The “Jiang” MV showed Meiqi performing a one-cut dance choreography for her latest song. There was nothing extremely special about the MV, only Meiqi flaunting excellent dancing moves while singing to her track. The color and the theme of the MV were quite dull with blue and crimson red dominating throughout the video.
The album sold more than 1 million copies within less than an hour of the release. Due to her success in her home country, fans wondered whether Meiqi will return as a member of WJSN.
Meiqi collected a TMEA, which is a Tencent Music Entertainment Award, in December 2019. 2019 had been an excellent year for Meiqy, her EP album earned her diamond certificate and recorded the fastest-selling record in 2019.
That was all the information about WJSN members Chengxiao, Xuanyi, and Meiqi. Even though they had a difficult time getting popularity in Korea, the WJSN Chinese trio gained huge popularity in their home country. Let’s wish that they can continue to improve their talent and produce more popular K-Pop songs.
