Another trainee has had to leave “Produce 101 Season 2” because of circumstances beyond his control.
On May 19, contestant Kim Tae Min’s agency Hanahreum Company stated that they had “some have unfortunate news” regarding the trainee. “Kim Tae Min was suddenly taken to the hospital last week due to abdominal pain, only to find that he has enterostenosis, and that surgery is inevitable,” they explained.
Enterostenosis, also known as intestinal stenosis, refers to the thinning of the lumen (inside) of the intestines, which makes it difficult for nutrition to flow through.
His agency continued, “[We] have concluded that it would be difficult for Kim Tae Min to continue appearing on ‘Produce 101 Season 2,’ and have decided he should leave the program after much discussion with the producers. As expected, Kim Tae Min, who had a lot of passion, is disappointed by the situation, and will work hard to quickly return to good health and return with a bettered self.”
“We would like to send our apologies to the fans who must be distressed over the sudden news of his departure, and we promise to do our best to do everything from an agency’s standpoint to help Kim Tae Min return in better health in front of everyone,” they concluded.
We hope Kim Tae Min makes a safe and full recovery!
