However, it seems that unit Sky's leader Sangmin will not be continuing the competition with the rest of the 23 contestants who survived for the duration of 'Boys 24'. Reportedly, Sangmin decided to drop out due to personal reasons, which included health issues. After discussion, Mnet has decided to respect Sangmin's wishes.
To replace Sangmin's spot, Mnet will be carrying out an online vote to bring back not just one, but five contestants who were formerly eliminated on 'Boys 24'. The votes will take place from August 10-15 here with the winners of the vote being announced on August 16.
The final 28 top contestants will begin their live stage competition this September 22.
