Produce Pandas - China's plus-sized boyband, whos members aren't really boys any more
Chinese boyband Produce Pandas aren't a parody, they're just average young men that form a, khm, boyband. They are promoting positivity, acting as good role models, but aged between 22 and 31 years old, they are practically geriatric in boyband terms, as Guardian reports. Otter, DING, Mr 17, Cass and Husky were recruited because they don’t fit the standard physique - “This is a plus-sized, all-singing, all-dancing idol band, which has never been seen before in the whole world”, as Mr 17 puts it. The name describes them, they believe - “We just look like a group of pandas: huggable, chubby shape, relaxed and happy attitude”.
