    He got attention for his dreamy visuals during the cover song mission but no one really remembers what position he was, I am glad that he got to show off more side of him! He is gaining alot of attention with the Koreans!

    yes gave me goosebumps

    What a find!  I was left breathless.  The voice is unspoilt and clear.  He's the kind of singer that doesn't power-sing but makes up for it with feelings.  He is so part of my Top 11 now.

    So, he's the new trend after Jisung? I don't have anything against him, but he probably will get hated on when he replaces Seonho in the top 11. That or Mnet will evil-edit him to make it seem like he's lazy or a douchebag. Pretty sure he's not in Mnet's planned top 11, so we should expect the worst to happen.

    It's still too early to say he's a trend, but his popularity is definitely increasing. Whether he'll get into top11 is still uncertain though. Seeing as Mnet was the one that gave him so much screentime out of the blue I don't think it's likely that they'll evil edit him, but we never know.

    He was actually the top choice for Pann, Instiz, and many more Korean websites. That's how he still manage to rank 35th even with like no screen time.

    mydeerlikesbacon mindlessdream Tuesday, May 16, 2017

    But he wasn't big enough to have tons of articles written about him. He was at that level where he does have fans to vote for him, but it was ultimately after the evaluations that his popularity started increasing that much.

    Glad they're finally noticing talent

    I believe the next CUT line after 60, is the #35 line, so right now he is at the border of the 2nd cut line, (the 3rd cut line is #22, just before the final cut line at #11, the debut line).
