Formed from the winners of the Taiwan audtion, introducing: Bing Qi Lin Shao Nu Zu/Ice Cream Musume :w00t:

Posted Image


Produced by Yoshitake Tanaka, original producer of Country Musume. I've been reliably informed that pronouncing their name is something like "Been Chillin Show Nu Zu", which, I think you'll agree, is bad ass compared to just calling them Ice Cream Musume. ^^; Their official blog lies here: http://imusume.pixnet.net/blog

Shamelessly stolen from Stardust,

After the six girls were selected by Tsunku himself in September, over a month was spent with the girl's parents organising for their futures in the entertainment industry and in contractual talks. The girls also immediately began training and now that all affairs have been sorted can now travel to Japan for training and recording for their debut album.

Although the sun had not yet even risen, the spirits of the members were high on the morning of the 8th of November as the girls all arrived at the airport. The girls declared their excitement with many not being able to get to sleep the night before, in anticipation.

12 year old Gǔ Yún, the daughter of track athlete (decathlon) Gǔ Jin Shui, will be heading abroad for the first time by herself. Her father is not worried though, describing his daughter as independant and clever.

Céng Dé Píng expressed a desire to lay a firm foundation of Japanese pronunciation before tackling Japanese conversation while 14 year old, Qiu Cui Ling acknowledged that training will be tough, concerned that she may not be able to keep up with the other members. She maintained that she will try her very best to make the most of her Japanese trip.

Light Bulb had one of her classic moments at the airport after being told drinks and liquids were prohibited from being brought on the plane, extremely concerned she would be branded a terrorist for having to bring on cold medicine. Her tension was deemed cute and amusing to the staff and other members.

Elder members Zhōng An Qi and Wú Sī Xuán showed motherly spirit, caring for the younger members' whereabouts and emotions. The pair have also been strenuously practicing the lyrics of their Japanese songs together.

While the girls have very serious training ahead of them, their biggest concerns seemed to be excitement over visiting Tokyo Disneyland, revealing their childish, cute sides.

Their debut album is expected to be released before the new lunar year (Jan/Feb 09), though the article is scarce on details. More information, including a release date, will be revealed as the girls progress through their training. They are all hoping to have great results from the training, bringing glory as they represent Taiwan.


So who are our shiny new girls? Let's take a look (Please note that name romanization is debateable and you'll probably run into quite a few different versions of the same name while you wander the net):

The host then suggested she should ask Tsunku what they will be eating in Japan. She wanted him to ask for her so they ended up doing rock-scissors-paper. She lost so she asked Tsunku what they eat for breakfast lunch dinner. Tsunku said breakfast is nattou, lunch is curry rice, dinner is nattou. The host asked if it's what Tsunku personally likes to eat, and he replied everyone in Morning Musume eats this too. Lightbulb said she'd be able to cope with the menu.

Bah, I'm still bitter the girl I thought was one of the most talented didn't make it while some of the girls who didn't really know what they were doing made it instead. I wish these girls the best, though... It was the first time I actually watched the auditions of an H!P group so now I think I can relate what people are going through when they watch the auditions, pick a favorite, and that favorite happens to not make it. For the duration of the group's life you keep thinking, what would have happened if the girl I liked made the group instead of this other girl? *sigh*

I hope they do well and work hard. :sob:

I feel your pain burnt glitter. I was quite impressed with the girl you're speaking about (she played an instrument, and later performed Tokaikko Junjou, correct?) and would have loved both her and Risa Fan to have made it into the group (instead of Gu Yun and De Ping, but that's just me .... that would have been my perfect line up :lol: ) and I do think, for a little while at least, I'm always going to think of those two when I see the group.

I only go - UP! UP!

^About the girl I like, I think I only saw one performance of hers and I fell in love with her, but I thought the audition process was stupid so I eventually stopped watching (I didn't like how they gave all of the girls who did badly hope by passing them but I guess that was supposed to make the show interesting :lol: ), but I do know that she performed this "Shanghai" song as her first performance... I think her name was like Ke Min? Or Peng? Or both? I dunno I just really liked her... XD

And Risa Fan was such a cutie... Sure she can't sing or dance too well but if she was in this group I think she'd be one of the better looking ones! I guess we don't need another Sayu character in H!P though. No offense to these girls when I say that, though, I wish them the best... Just, I can't get out of my mind what could have been. I imagine that a lot of people have already been through this but with Morning Musume, which I imagine would be a lot worse. If 9th generation auditions ever show up I don't know if I could watch them knowing that if I pick a girl and really really like her and she ends up not making it I'll feel this crappy.

Oh yeah, that's the one. I was quite fond of her, she had spunk and seemed a very capable performer with potential. (No offense to De Pin fans or anything, she's even growing on me now, but she was a train wreck in the auditions by comparison.)

Risa-fan could dance though XD But yes, its best we just wish Ice Cream the best and try and forget. And try not to get too attached whenever any future auditions pop up :lol:

^Indeed. I wonder what kind of songs they will have/what label they will be released under? Surely they won't go right away with the major debut, they've just arrived this month, right?

You're right about the future auditions... I just hope I can get the resolve to watch them! Watching American Idol (which I've only done once) and other shows involving auditions I usually don't get this dissatisfied if my favorite girl doesn't win... Actually that happened to me once watching America's Next Top Model when they jumped the shark and chose the plus-size model over the other more experienced/overall better finalists. But H!P related stuff is more important to me for some reason.

Gosh, now I'm all curious and excited :lol: I really hope they do well. I wonder if they've talked to Junjun or Linlin? XD

Haven't watched any of the auditions and only clicked this thread out of curiosity but Céng Dé Píng looks to be the cutest one based on the pictures provided.

I might eventually grab the auditions but if anyone can tell me which episodes to check out first that would be great. I don't think I'll be up to watching every single one especially since I still have all those old Asayans left unwatched.

If the guy behind Country Musume is involved then they have a chance.

Oh they certainly can go major straight away. It just depends on if a major record label wanted them or not, and obviously a label was willing to take on the winners of the show, otherwise the show would never have happened. People like Mano and C-ute were indie for a while to build up fanbase and show major labels that they could sell; that C-ute wouldn't do as bad as Berryz initially did, and that Mano, despite a poor voice, is popular with the wota and will sell regardless.

I'd say they'll be the pop ilk of the rest of H!P .. perhaps with a focus on more natural pop, but still sugary sweet, like ice cream? XD Perhaps similar to "Morning Coffee" or "Sky" by SweetS I could see them covering other H!P songs in Mandarin every so often too.

Anya was ROBBED. :) They truly nuked the fridge on that one.

For those asking, I'm adding a list of the auditions on youtube as compiled by Nayok-Kihara to the first post, and will also embed some videos of our 6 performing if I can find them.

I only go - UP! UP!

I really don't like the name, why Ice-cream, are they sponsoring some kind of ice cream, all the other Musume's made sense to me. I hope they do well though, I'm excited for their debut.

He is promoting Hokkaido's dairy in Taiwan. the article then keeps talking about the Milk Industry's making millions of yen in Hokkaido.


Maybe the Country Musume producer is trying to promote Hokkaido Ice cream? ^^; I dont like the name much either, so I just use the Mandarin instead; once you memorize it, it's much better. Been Chilling Show Nu Zu :D

Thank you liamers :huh:

I remember why I didn't watch this now, it's because the host reminds me of Gok Wan :D

Crazy Risa Fan for President! After watching that again I'm even more upset that she's not a member of the group. I might've been interested in them if she was...
We'll see how it goes.
