Produce X 101 is currently airing and viewers have been consistently engaged with the show with the public eventually voting in the eleven members of the final boy group.
This has meant a lot of online attention has been focused on the contestants, but unfortunately not all of it has been positive.
Kim Mingyu, a trainee from Jellyfish Entertainment, has consistently ranked within the Top 3 at the end of each episode so far.
His stunning visuals has won him many fans and he was even voted the handsomest trainee by the other contestants.
However, he had been criticised by the judges for his skills and was placed in the lowest rank, Class X in the first episode.
Although he has been working extremely hard, Kim Mingyu has continued to be criticised online for lacking stage presence while still ranking within the Top 3.
In a confessional, Mingyu stated that this was the first time in his life that he had received so much attention.
Consequently, he felt like he was under a lot of pressure to do well so he wouldn’t let people down.
Although he has been putting in so much effort and has been steadily improving, Mingyu still receives negative attention for his performances.
I can’t just be the Mingyu who works hard, I have to be the Mingyu that does well
After revealing his feelings, Mingyu started tearing up but he started slapping his knee so he wouldn’t cry on camera.
I can’t have these emotions because I must do well
Although he is extremely popular, Mingyu continues to spend a lot of his energy and time on improving his talents.
Kim Mingyu is hitting his self to stop himself from crying.
He was trying to be strong, but deep inside he’d like to cry. But he won’t do it, and promised to do better instead.#PRODUCEX101 #PRODUCE101 #프로듀스X101 #프로듀스101시즌4 #PDX101PH #KIMMINGYU pic.twitter.com/3JZiHzBq72
