On the May 10 airing of Mnet's 'Produce X 101,' the YG Entertainment trainees performed for the level test.
Wang Goon Ho and Hidaka Mahiro received great attention from the moment they walked into the studio for their mighty agency. With high expectations from fellow trainees, the two performed "Good Boy" by label senior GD x Taeyang.
Unfortunately, Wang and Kidaka failed to live up to the high expectations and faced harsh criticism from the trainers.
Vocal trainer Shin Yoo Mi said, "You guys tried so hard but I can't tell what you're trying to portray." Dance trainer Choi Yong Joon said, "To be honest, it's was an unclear dance that I can't evaluate. To just say it plainly, you guys didn't do well."
Another dance trainer Kwon Jae Seung commented, "Honestly, I don't think I would've known you guys were YG trainees if I didn't see the name (tags)."
Ultimately, Wang Goon Ho received 'C' rank, while Hidaka Mahiro received 'D.'
Cheetah remarked, "I think it's because we had expectations for the agency. Honestly, they're rank 'X' when just looking at the performance they prepared."
