On a the 5th episode of Mnet’s Produce X 101, the nerve wracking rank reveal took place that determined which trainees can stay and which ones will go.
Only the top 60 trainees were allowed to stay on the show, and this caused a lot of tension that made trainees cry whether they survived or not.
What caught the attention of many viewers was the sweet way Lee Dong Wook responded to the crying trainees.
When Song Hyungjun realized he took 3rd place, he was so moved and overwhelmed that he burst out into uncontrollable tears.
In response, Lee Dong Wook said, “We won’t do the interview until you stop crying. Are you able to talk now?” in the sweetest and warmest way possible.
That’s not all. When Lee Wonjun found out he was in 44th place, he also burst into tears, which led to Lee Dong Wook fixing his hair in a caring manner.
He then handed him a bottle of water and watched over him until he calmed down.
