Song Hyungjoon was recently announced as the Produce X 101 contestant in 4th place which means he’ll be debuting with their new boy group, X1.
Following the great news, Hyungjoon’s hometown of Tongyeong couldn’t hold back their excitement and decided to congratulate him in a special way.
Not only did the residents of the town make a banner for him, but they also hung it up in a very central area for everyone to see.
In recent days, a photo of the banner went viral in online communities due to what was written on it as well.
The banner reads, “The youngest son, Song Hyungjoon of (father’s name) and (mother’s name) is debuting as an idol through Produce X 101. The residents of the town congratulate you.”
