“Produce 48” Reveals Top 30 In 2nd Round Of Eliminations, With Some Big Changes To Rankings
“Produce 48” has narrowed down its lineup to only 30 contestants!
In the August 3 episode of the Mnet survival show, the second round of eliminations was held, with contestants ranking in the 31 to 57 spots going home. The episode also included the contestants preparing for their next mission: the concept evaluation.
With the ultimate goal of creating a 12-member girl group with both Korean and Japanese members, “Produce 48” has now eliminated all but the top 30 contestants.
The eliminations this week featured some big rises in the rankings, with for example Han Cho Won soaring from No. 88 in the third week to No. 47 in the first eliminations, all the way to No. 9 this week. Kang Hye Won also rose from No. 25 in the first eliminations to No. 3.
