Models from Korean modeling agency Esteem auditioned on Mnet's 'Produce X 101.'
The level tests continued on the May 10 episode. To the model contestants, trainer Lee Suk Hoon asked, "You want to become a singer?" Park Yuri, one of the four Esteem model contestants, replied, "Before I became a model, my dream was to become an idol."
In the interview, Park Yuri revealed he's a former SM Entertainment trainee and said, "I was supposed to debut in NCT but I didn't so I gave up my idol dreams and became a model. For model (runway) shows, the main focus is the designer, not the model. I want to be the main focus on the stage."
Park Yuri impressed the trainers with his confidence and outstanding dance skills. Ultimately, he was the only Esteem contestant to receive a 'B' rank.
