Other than the rigorous training they went through, Woo Jin Young, Kim Hyun Soo, Park Woo Dam, Jung Yoo Joon, and Jo Yong Geun also took chances on various reality survival programs including the second season of Produce 101 and MIXNINE.
In particular, Woo Jin Young ranked number one in MIXNINE, securing a spot on the program’s debuting team. However, the plan fell through and prompted him to return to trainee life.
