PENTAGON Hui Gets Emotional After Seeing MC Minhyun in ‘Boys Planet’– Here’s Why
This is because Hwang Minhyun after joining “Produce 101” S2 made it into the debut lineup and succeeded in joining a boy group called WANNA ONE. At the time, Hui, singer, songwriter, producer and member of the top-tier team PENTAGON was widely recognized for his musical abilities that he was tapped to make WANNA ONE’s track, “Energetic.” MC Hwang took part in performing it and immediately became a massive hit.
Unfortunately, the table has been reversed and despite his popularity back then, Hui is now starting from the very start as a trainee to regain his group’s popularity which drastically fell due to his military enlistment and the agency’s failure to give them frequent releases and promotion amid tough K-pop competition.
