“Under 19” Contestant Choi Soomin Forced To Leave Show After Repeatedly Breaking Rules

On the latest episode of MBC’s "Under 19",the idol audition program announced that contestant Choi Soomin had been removed from the show.

During the January 19 broadcast of the survival show, host Kim So Hyunbegan the elimination ceremony by making an unexpected announcement.

“Before I officially reveal the rankings, I have an announcement to make to all of you,” said the actress. “Idol trainee Choi Soomin of the rap team has broken the rules for idol trainees multiple times up until now. Therefore, starting today, he will no longer be able to participate in ‘Under 19.'”

The contestants’ reactions varied, with one trainee exclaiming, “Really?” while another remarked, “So it finally happened.”

Kim So Hyun continued, “The idol trainee rules that you are required to follow while participating in ‘Under 19’ are also a promise that you have made with the supporters who are cheering you on. So we hope that you will be sure to abide by these valuable rules in the future.”

The 25 contestants who survived the latest round of eliminations went on to participate in the “director collaboration mission,” in which each team put on a special collaboration performance with their celebrity director. The dance team collaborated with Super Junior’s Eunhyukthe rap team with Dynamic Duo, and the vocal team with EXID’s Solji and Crush.

Edit: MBC didn't state which rules he broke.

    Couldn't have happened to a better guy. The guy was a straight up douche, whining about his knee to not have to practice the choreo but magically becomes all better when the trainer wants to see it and calling his teammates the liars when they called out his bs.

    He is very selfish, they did the work he wants the praise. Karma is a biotch.

    So that’s why the trainees said “It finally happened.” Now I can see that those trainees had a hard time dealing with this little brat that they were waiting for this to happen sooner or later

    I might not be following the program very closely but I think it's good that someone who broke the rules gets kicked out, if rules are established you should follow them, it's for the greater good of the group

    Don't watch the show but it sounds like he was giving his fellow trainees a hard time and not wanting to be a team player, it was the right move

    MBC didn’t state which rule he broke. (I added this info now in the article)


    Another user claimed that a Korean website wrote that it had to do something with 'the rules about Soju', so maybe alcohol. BUT I don't know if that's true or just a rumor.

    He also sat out on choreo practices and had a lot of conflicts with the other trainees. I’m not exactly sure if it’s the underage drinking or the falling out with the trainees that caused his dismissal. In fact, it could be both because the MC stated he had broken “multiple rules.”

    This boy could have won. This is not a show for him, as he gave unnecessary stress to his team every single time. I'm glad that a rotten apple like him is out of the show.

    He was/is a cashier in a gasoline station, so he's probably not wealthy. Damn this boy angered me throughout his run!

    Rather stupid of him to destory this chance...One agency like a problematic trainee from the start as it can just lead to more headaches. And he has been given so many chances.
