Jellyfish Entertainment trainee, Yoon Hee Seok, who appeared on Mnet’s “Produce 101 Season 2,” has left the company and put trainee life behind altogether.
On December 15, Jellyfish Entertainment revealed Yoon Hee Seok is no longer a trainee, stating, “We respected his personal desire to [quit being a trainee and] return to a normal life as a student.”
Yoon Hee Seok appeared on “Produce 101 Season 2” as a Jellyfish Entertainment trainee, and had only trained for six months prior to the show. Yoon Hee Seok gained a lot of attention for his tall height, good looks, and resemblance to VIXX’s leader N, who is in Jellyfish Entertainment as well. As he did not have a lot of experience as a trainee, Yoon Hee Seok initially started with a ‘F’ ranking, but was praised as a hardworking contestant after he worked his way up to a ‘B’ ranking.
