Court Reveals “Produce 101” Series Contestants Who Were Eliminated Due To Voting Manipulation

On November 18, the trial of appeals was held for the “Produce 101” series manipulation case. That attracted attention from fans of the program!

Previously, PD (producing director of “Produce 101” series) Ahn Joon Young received a sentence of two years along with a fine, and CP (chief producer of “Produce 101” series) Kim Yong Bum received a sentence of one year and eight months. As a result of the trial of appeals on November 18, the court decided to maintain the sentences.

Assistant PD “Lee” and five entertainment agency representatives, who were previously sentenced to fines, have now also received prison sentences of eight months suspended for two years.

The court revealed the list of contestants who were eliminated due to manipulation, commenting, “The harmed trainees being revealed through a fair criminal trial can be the starting point towards them receiving true compensation for damages.” It has been decided that the contestants who benefited from the manipulation will not be revealed as they were not aware of the manipulation happening, and revealing their names could additionally cause harm to them.

The contestants who were eliminated as a result of manipulation are as follows:

“Produce 101” (first round of voting): Kim Su Hyun, Seo Hye Lin

“Produce 101 Season 2”: 

  • The first round of voting: Seong Hyun Woo (LIMITLESS’s A.M)
  • The fourth round of voting: Kang Dong Ho (NU’EST’s Baekho)
