Talented aspiring singer Lee Hyeop has signed with Woollim Entertainment on July 29 following Produce X 101!

The Produce X 101 contestant has said goodbye to his “independent trainee” status as he officially signed with an agency for his future activities.

“Lee Hyeop, who impressed on Produce X 101 has joined Woollim Rookie. New and fun news about Lee Hyeop will now be shared through Woollim Rookie. Please show him lots of support,” the agency stated.

Winning over viewers with his amazing vocals, he showed everyone his capability of hitting high notes and staying stable during his appearance at the program as a trainee.
