Mnet’s “Produce X 101” will soon show its first ranking ceremony, including many trainees being sent home.
Hosted by actor Lee Dong Wook, this season of the survival show includes male trainees vying for a spot in an 11-member boy group, which will promote together for five years. Starting with 101 trainees, the number was brought down to 99 after two contestants left. The trainees so far have showed their talents through evaluations, a “Group X Battle” where they teamed up to perform covers of songs by popular boy groups, and more.
In episode 5, the number of trainees will be narrowed to 60, and the remaining contestants will be sent home. The Top 60 is determined through a combination of online votes (which were open until May 25) and benefit points from studio audience votes for the winners in the Group X Battle.
“Produce X 101” episode 5 airs at 11 p.m. KST on May 31.
