It has been belatedly revealed that Choon Entertainment’s trainee Kim Si Hyun has left “Produce 101 Season 2.”
On March 23, a source from Choon Entertainment stated, “Trainee Kim Si Hyun decided to leave ‘Produce 101 Season 2’ due to health concerns. We have finalized discussions with the production staff of the show.”
Kim Si Hyun left the show the day before the filming of the group performance for “It’s Me (Pick Me)” on “M!Countdown.”
Initially, it was reported that both trainees from Choon Entertainment had left the show; however, the agency source clarified that Choon Entertainment trainee Kim Yong Guk will continue to compete in “Produce 101 Season 2.”
Furthermore, as contestant Han Jong Yeon also left the program earlier on due to his controversial past, “Produce 101 Season 2” is actually starting off with 99 contestants instead of the original 101 trainees.
