Produce 101 was originally a 2016 reality show for girl groups featured on Mnet. The previous season took a pool of 101 trainees from 46 entertainment companies and formed a group through a series of competitions. The group formed previously was I.O.I, a popular up and coming girl group.
Now, they’re back with season 2 for a male group!
Topp Dogg’s A-Tom is reported to be joining the competition and leaving his original group.
Hunus made the statement:
It’s true that one member will be departing the group and participating in the program but we cannot reveal who that member is.
Reportedly, when Star News found out about the members name, Hunus Entertainment confirmed the departure.
Members other than A-Tom will not be participating in ‘Produce 101’ season 2. The team will stay together.
The show is set to broadcast in mid-march and the first episode started recording on February 26, 2017.
