“Idol Producer,” a hit boy group reality show on the online video platform iQiyi, held its final contest on Friday last week. Among the three Taiwanese “trainees” that advanced to the final round, Leo Chen and Evan Lin stood out, while Jeffrey Tung lost the chance to enter showbiz.

Chen, a 17-year-old Taiwanese boy nicknamed “Nong Nong,” has proved popular because of his sunny disposition. He managed to attract more than 20 million votes from fans in the final round and was ranked No. 2. Meanwhile, Web celebrity Cai Xukun was ranked first and Adam Fan, younger brother of actress Fan Bingbing, came third.

In the final round, the top nine contestants emerged from the 100 trainees announced to officially enter showbiz as a new boy group — “Nine Percent.” Group members included Justin Huang at No. 4, and Zhu Zhengting, Wang Ziyi, Xiao Gui and You Zhangjing at Nos. 6 through 9.
