[Zenith News=Byeon Jinhee] The national producers' responses to 'Produce X 101' are very hot. Whenever a new 'spoiler' is unveiled as it has done every season, the cheering fever heats up whenever the changed ranking is announced.
Amid the intensifying competition among 101 trainees who are participating in Mnet's 'Produce X 101’, which first aired on the 3rd, the performance of Starship Entertainment's trainees, which houses artists K.Will, Soyou, MONSTA X, Cosmic Girls and Jeong Se-woon, are drawing attention.
Starship Entertainment has performed well in all seasons of 'Produce 101'. In season 1, Yoo Yeon-jung was selected as the final member of I.O.I and is currently promoting as a member of 'Cosmic Girls', while Jeong Se-woon of season 2 was eliminated at 13th place but is gaining popularity after debuting as a solo artist. Jang Won-young and Ahn Yoo-jin, who appeared in season 3, are promoting in Korea and abroad as IZ*ONE. Therefore, attention was paid to the performance of the trainees who appeared in this season.
This time, a total of five trainees; Kang Min-hee, Koo Jung-mo, Moon Hyun-bin, Song Hyung-joon and Ham Won-jin cast their ballots for 'Produce X 101’. Although some failed to meet expectations in the first episode, they have been winning the hearts of the national producers by performing well in the second and third episode.

Especially, the member with the biggest response is Koo Jung-mo, who was ranked second in the first week, ninth in the second week and ninth in the third week. Earlier, when photos of the ‘Sangamjeol’ mini fan meeting and at the time the self-promotion video were released, he settled down at the top of the list becoming a ‘visual from cartoons’ and becoming national producers ‘PICK.’
Song Hyung-joon‘s rise is also scary. Starting at ninth, he then proved his popularity by putting his name in fourth place in the third week. He attracted female’s hearts with his cute looks and dialect that wasn’t fixed yet. Despite his young age, he also attracted attention as he took the lead among the X-rated trainees, leading the dance practice and even struggling. Expectations are high for his performance with NCT U's ‘The 7th Sense’ known as the Avengers-class battle which will air on the 24th.
Ham Won-jin earned the final grade of A after receiving praise from his mentors for his best performance among the five trainees. In the show, he showed off his chemistry by carefully taking care of his younger brother Song Hyung-joon, and also left a great impression with his handsome visual and dance skills next to DSP media’s center Son Dong-pyo during the stage of the theme song 'X1-MA.’
With his ranking starting from 19th on the first week and after that, having a steady rise to 15th and then 12th, he is expected to get even better results as he took the center position for the ‘Clap’ stage for the group battle.
