Girls Planet 999 is set to launch soon, with trainees from China, Japan, and Korea. While many of the Chinese trainees already have a steady fandom having come from Youth with You, a Chinese reality show similar to Produce 101, Roada Xu Ziyin is gaining exceptional attention for her stellar background.
Born in 1996, the talented girl hails from the prestigious Beijing Film Academy. A college education is rare for a trainee, but her grandmother had insisted on her getting her degree before setting foot into the entertainment industry.
In fact, one reason why many fans are buzzing about the singer is due to her having passed auditions for not one, but three entertainment companies when she was younger! Prior to entering college, she passed auditions for SM Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, and Cube Entertainment! Unfortunately, she turned all of them down due to her family’s wishes for her to continue her education first.
This does not come as a surprise given her gorgeous visuals. Not only that, she often took the position of main vocal during her time on Youth With You.
She is trained in vocals and bel canto as well. Her signature husky voice can also hit the higher octaves. Check out her singing skills below.
She also is adept at dance. Check out her cover of IZ*ONE‘s Panorama below.
Although she failed to make it into the debut team ultimately, Roada walked away with loyal supporters that will sure to be watching over her new journey in South Korea with Girls Planet 999.
