Produce 101 Season 2

Ahn Hyung-seop is one of the trainees that participate in Produce 101 Season 2.

He became the representative of his label, Yuehua Entertainment, along with his label mate that later became his duo partner, Eui-woong.

Although he failed to finish the show in the top 11 contestants and couldn’t debut with WANNA ONE, he still gained a lot of popularity after participating on the show and captured a lot of female audiences’ hearts.

Bromance with Park Woo-jin

Being in a reality show with a lot of trainees from several companies, it is quite impossible for Ahn Hyeong-seop if he didn’t make friends with other contestants. Aside from Lee Eui-woong, his label mate in Yuehua Entertainment, Ahn Hyeong-seop also get closer with Park Woo-jin, a trainee from YMC Entertainment that later on debuted with other 10 contestants as WANNA ONE.

Both Hyeong-seop and Woo-jin are on the same age, they were born in 1999. It must be one of the reasons why they could be so close while filming the show. The two also got together as a team several times and became close because of that. Hyeong-seop even said that Woo-jin helped him a lot whenever he faced some problem in dancing or rapping.

Lots of fans are admiring this bromance and declare Hyeong-seop and Woo-jin as one of the bromances that they missed in Produce 101 Season 2. Are you one of their bromance shippers?

They also often took a selfie together. Look how cute they are!


There are a lot of controversies in Produce 101 Season 2 and one of them is the evil editing for Ahn Hyeong-seop. The production team of the show edited his part and made him looks like a bad person in some episodes.

Later on, he apologized for his bad attitude that looks so immature. But the scene of him apologizing for his bad attitude was only shown in the episode preview, and there wasn’t even any scene about him apologized in the real episode.

That’s why fans are angry again with the production team, because of the evil editing, Ahn Hyeong-seop could get a bad vote and got eliminated. He once finished at the 6th position but then dropped to the 20th position on the next episode. Oh, how poor he is.. that’s okay, Hyeong-seop, fans still love you!

Debut as Hyeongseop X Euiwoong

Even though Ahn Hyeong-seop only finished at top 20 contestants in Produce 101 Season 2 and didn’t get a chance to debut with WANNA ONE, he’s still managed to debut as a duo with his fellow label mate that also participated in Produce 101 Season 2, Lee Eui-woong!

Hyeong-seop and Eui-woong debuted with a song called It Will Be Good in November 2017. The lyrics of this song tells about a boy who falls in love with a girl. Just like any other love song, this song also got a heartwarming feeling when you listen to it. The two boys look so fresh and cute while exploring the city in the music video that has nice cinematography.

On April 2018 the duo made a comeback again with a song called Love Tint. The music video has the same vibe with their previous song, It Will Be Good. The lyrics also sounds so sweet, which is about falling in love with a girl–you can guess by looking at the title. Once again, the boys made an awesome singing and rapping in this song. They even got nominated as a Best New Male Artist in MAMA 2018.
