The “Chae” position in “HyeMiLeeYeChaePa” was almost changed from LE SSERAFIM Chaewon to ITZY Chaeryeong.
ENA’s “HyeMiLeeYeChaePa (HMLYCP)” broadcast on May 28th depicts the members wrapping up their journey.
On the morning of the last day, the members expressed deep regret while having a meal together. At that moment, the production staff said, “From now on, you can challenge the final personal quest at any time. The cash obtained from this personal quest will be reflected in your support funds in Season 2.”, revealing the possibility of the program having a second season.
The members were all happy to hear Season 2 being mentioned. Lee Jung shed tears, and Hyeri also showed red eyes after seeing Lee Jung’s tears. The touching moment lasted for a short while until the members started teasing each other and speculating about the joining of another “HyeMiLeeYeChaePa”.
Everyone agreed that it would not be easy for Chaewon to participate in Season 2 because of her busy schedule, so they might need to find a new “Chae” to fill her vacancy. Although Chaewon strongly opposed it, the members teased her, drawing laughter as they suggested that ITZY Chaeryeong could become the new “Chae”.
Chaeryeong was also mentioned in the personal quest. Choi Ye Na got emotional when she drew 1000 cash and she exclaimed “Chaeryeong ah”. In response, Chaewon expressed her disappointment, saying “Why do you keep mentioning Chaeryeong?”.
Chaewon successfully proved her presence for the “Chae” position during the personal quest by accurately answering the subtitle of “HyeMiLeeYeChaePa”. Hyeri and other members reacted, “There’s only one Chae, and that’s Chaewon”, promising to return in Season 2 together with Chaewon.
