Starship Entertainment is sending a trainee to the Chinese survival program Youth With You.
The female trainee, Fu Jia, is a Chinese native who is allegedly taking the stage name Kaka.
Her specialty is rap but her dance is also said to be strong, positions she cultivated as a trainee in Korea.

The 18 year old will be representing both Starship Entertainment and Yizong Entertainment.
Considering the recent Produce scandal where Starship Entertainment was suspected of rigging their trainees’ ranks, fans are surprised that they would consider placing a trainee in a survival show so soon.
