On March 6, news outlet OSEN reported that the upcoming season of Mnet’s popular series “Produce 101” will be featuring a new grade to the show’s conventional “level test.”
Since the first season, the show has always conducted a level test during the first episode, after which each participant receives a grade that ranges from A to D, and F. According to the report released by OSEN, the upcoming season will be adding one more grade to the system, known as X. This grade is one below F, which has always been the lowest grade a trainee could receive from the test.
Two days ago on March 4, Mnet announced that they began filming “Produce_X101” and that the show will feature Lee Dong Wook as the new host. They also revealed that trainers including Cheetah, SG Wannabe’s Lee Seok Hoon, choreographer Kwon Jae Seung, and singer Shin Yoo Mi will be returning for the new season.
