Earlier this week, it was revealed that WINNER’s Kang Seung Yoon will be appearing on “MIXNINE” as a special guest judge.
Kang Seung Yoon joined the judging panel alongside Yang Hyun Suk, CL, and Zion.T to evaluate the performances from the audition’s second mission, “Formation Battle.”
The singer provided professional advice as well as sincere commentary to the contestants as a former survival program participant himself.
Coincidentally, Kang Seung Yoon was able to judge one of the girls’ teams who chose WINNER’s “Really Really” for the competition. Prior to performance day, he had also visited the recording room where the contestants gathered to record the re-arranged version of “Really Really.” The singer shared warm words of encouragement to support the contestants.
The production team of “MIXNINE” explained, “Kang Seung Yoon did a splendid job as a judge, providing genuine commentary and practical advice. He watched the stages of the boys and girls intently and cheered them on for their passion and drive.”
Meanwhile, “MIXNINE” eliminated 71 contestants in the previous episode. The second round of eliminations will be determined based on the sum of the second performance results and online votes.
The show airs every Sunday on JTBC at 4:50 p.m. KST.
