'BOYS PLANET' contestants who are also members of other K-pop groups


'Boys Planet' is an ongoing boy group reality survival show produced by Mnet to form a global K-pop boy group. The show is a male version of 'Girls Planet 999,' the survival program that formed the girl group Kep1er.

The survival show features 93 male trainees in total as contestants. The trainees are split into two groups: the K-Group for candidates from Korea and the G-Group for contestants from across the world. Some of the participants are already members of other K-pop groups. Here, let’s have a look at such contestants from the K-Group of the survival show.


    Lee Hoe-Taek, better known by his stage name Hui, is a South Korean singer, songwriter, and composer who is one of the most popular participants in “Boys Planet.” He is the leader and main vocalist of the well-known K-pop boy group PENTAGON. This already-established idol made his debut with PENTAGON in 2016. He was also a former member of Triple H.

            Top Media pullin another episode like they did with Jinhyuk and wooseok pisses me off so bad. If they keep these two from the group and ruin up10tion further I will never forgive. Xiao knows how to write and compose and is an amazing dancer, Hwanhee is often compared to Baekhyun, seeing this show call them trainees just bugs me....

            Nine.I just debuted so I don't understand why they are on this show, would have been better off on Peak Time.

            I refuse to watch this show but everything I see on social media and all the little snippets of Hui, has them editing him like he's some washed up idol on his last leg, which he's clearly not anywhere close to that.

            I don't agree with them being on here either. But I also don't like how any of them are being edited.

            Let's not forget Keita is from Ciipher, and Ze:u was from Black Level, also missing Winnie from Nine.I.
