After Produce 101, Produce 101 Season 2, and Produce 48, MNet is launching yet another installment of the Produce series, Produce X 101. Just like the previous seasons, it will rank the trainees based on their skills, however this time, they will introduce a lower rank than ‘F’, the dreaded ‘X’. Only two days after Produce X 101’s runway show that introduced some of the trainees, a certain contestant captivated the eyes of the public with his absolutely heavenly visuals!
His name is Cha Junho, and he is currently a trainee under Woollim Entertainment! Woollim is known to be the home of talented artists such as INFINITE, Lovelyz, and soloist JOO. In the season prior to Produce X 101, Produce 48, two out of the twelve members of IZ*ONE, the final group, are also from Woollim. The company is reputed for their not only talented but also visually striking idols.
His handsome and dreamy looks immediately made him one of the, if not, the most popular trainee of Produce X 101 thus far. As a matter of fact, for the reason of… just breathing, Cha Junho already got more than not just twenty, not just thirty, not just forty, but fifty fansites! Also, aside from being buzzed for his visuals, other people also seen a striking resemblance with co-Woollim artist, L of INFINITE! And it’s not only their faces that are similar, their awkwardly cute demeanors are quite the same as well.
Cha Junho is reported to be a 2002 liner according to various sources. As a future singer, one cannot rely on looks alone and should also furnish their own skills. He is currently enrolled in Hanlim Arts and took up applied music, major in vocals! Yes, major in vocals! As the clock continues to tick, the list of the reasons to look forward to his Produce X 101 performance just keeps on getting longer and longer and longer.
Produce X 101 already released the music video for theme song, “X1-MA”, and broke the million mark in less than a day. The show will start its broadcast on May 23, 2019.
