Watch: Kim Yo Han Struggles While Rehearsing For Group Battle In “Produce X 101” Teaser
Mnet’s “Produce X 101” has released a preview featuring trainee Kim Yo Han.
The teaser shows top-ranking trainee Kim Yo Han facing struggles in this week’s episode as he prepares for the group battle. The preview first includes special guest dance trainer Bae Yoon Jung complimenting his team (who is performing NCT U’s “Boss” for the challenge) on their good looks.
While they perform for their trainers, Kim Yo Han slips up with the lyrics, and vocal trainer Shin Yoo Mi says, “Get it together!” Bae Yoon Jung comments, “You’re in trouble. Kim Yo Han, do you want to give up?” She also tells them that there are more trainees making excuses by saying they’re ill than there were during the girls’ season.
Kim Yo Han is then shown sitting alone in a practice room. He’s heard saying, “I felt like everything was my fault.”
The preview then shows his individual focus video for the “Boss” performance, and the producers showcase negative comments from viewers. They include accusations that the producing director is biased towards Kim Yo Han (calling him the “PD Pick”), as well as comments about how his dancing needs to improve. Other comments said that while Kim Yo Han had been their main choice when voting, they’d changed their mind after watching the video.
While these are the comments that the preview has chosen to showcase, Kim Yo Han’s individual focus video on Naver TV has the highest views of all trainees (over 700,000 at the time of this article’s publication) and many highly upvoted positive and supportive comments.
At the end of the preview, host Lee Dong Wook begins to announce the winning team of the group battle that will perform on “M Countdown.” Kim Yo Han is heard saying, “I want to perform one more time with my teammates.”
Episode 4 of “Produce X 101” will air on May 24 at 11 p.m. KST on Mnet.
