Produce X 101 Announces Winning Members And Name of New Boy Group
The final line up composes of early favorites with a few surprise additions.
Produce X 101 has named the members of its newest boy group. It was more than four hours of nerve-wracking moments, but Mnet’s survival program has finally come to an end. Prior to the announcement of the eleven trainees who made it to the debut group, National Representative Lee Dong Wook revealed the group’s name – X1.
The members will be promoting under this name for five years. The first two and a half years will be solely devoted to the project group promotions. The latter half would have the members return to their agencies and have individual activities, with X1 as a side group project.
During the show as well as after the announcement of the final members, #PRODUCE_X_101 trended worldwide as well as some of the finalists.
