Since Produce 101 is a competition program, it’s important for the participants to survive as long as they can.
In order to go up in the rank, many of the trainee’s parents work hard outside camera, to let their sons’ name be known.
Here are some of the parents of trainees, who have been cheering desperately for their beloved child.
In the fourth week, trainees from rank 61st to 101th would be eliminated from the program, and for that reason, parents of trainees got nervous as well.
Kim YongJin has not been shown, not even once throughout first two episodes, however, he was caught trying to hide his tears when the first ranks were revealed on the behind scenes. Many people sympathized him, for his feelings were so real.
He posted on his tweet “Was I even alive when the camera was rolling? Was I even there? But I feel thankful for being in the 84th place though I have not been on air, I feel so sorry.” He went as high as 61th place in the 3rd episode. And, how did this happen?
His parents have been giving out small posters written about him and asking people to vote for him. Their love pulled him up to the 61th rank from 84th.
Another trainee, Kim TaeWoo, was blessed to have a parent that supported him. His parents gave out tissues designed with his profile picture and name to the audiences of the program.
Also other parents have made Twitters and Instagram to advertise their sons.
The actions taken by family members moved the hearts of the audiences and affected their votes.
Fans are looking forward to see more talented trainees who were not caught on camera much, but show their charm in stages, or advertisement made by their family members.
