Find out more below!
#1 Tense situation for the fight for center
During the position evaluation for the group ‘Barcode’, viewers found themselves holding their breath after seeing how E Entertainment’s WonHyuk and ESteem’s YuRi were fighting for the center as well as the main rapper position.
Eventually WonHyuk decided to move a back away, making YuRi the center for ‘Barcode’.
Since this is a program about survival, it seemed like it is not easy to give up on something that might have change your fate later on in the show.
However, later on, Vine’s BaekJin became the center due to several issues which happened later during the episode.
#2 DSP Media Son DongPyo’s concerns
You would most probably recall that Son DongPyo is the center for ‘X1_MA’ and for the past 3 seasons of “Produce”, every center eventually debuted at the final episode.
With that being said, Son DongPyo shared that he was worried that he would be the first to break the tradition by not getting into the debuting group.
He also mentioned that he wanted to show viewers a manlier side of him but had troubles expressing it. In the end, thanks to his other teammates from ‘Believer’, they settled on a concept that would help not only them but also Son DongPyo in showing off his manly sides.
They pulled of the choreography and received tremendous applause from the audience as well as compliments from the mentors.
#3 TOP Media’s Lee JinHyuk outstanding leadership
Lee JinHyuk was overwhelmed when he noticed how his teammates that had chosen ‘Turtle ship’ were mainly vocalists and the fact that they barely have any choreography making background. However, that did not stop him from trying his best to come up with a jaw dropping performance.
He was seen having to deal with writing the lyrics, coming up with movements and as well as helping with his other teammates. Due to the immense pressure which he was receiving, there was a moment when he broke down. He did not let it get to him and eventually managed to talk and communicate with the rest of his teammates, clearing up misunderstandings.
His hard work did not go into waste and managed to earn compliments from the mentors.
Viewers who were watching the show felt that Lee JinHyuk had really tried his best and deserved to have received the highest amount of votes from his team.
