Park Jihoon, who is currently ranked first place after the first round of online voting, is currently signed under Maroo Entertainment. It was caught on broadcast however that he listed SM Entertainment and Fantagio as companies he was previously signed under on his application. His total trainee time is 1 year and 9 months.
He was born on May 23, 1999, and currently attends high school at the School of Performing Arts Seoul (SOPA). His main hobby is gaming while two of his talents are a popping dance and beatboxing.
Park Jihoon has also been given the nickname “wink boy” for his adorable winks both in the preview pictures and during the first performance of “Pick Me”.
Unfortunately, Park Jihoon received a C rating during the judges’ evaluation. However, I.O.I‘s Jung Chaeyeon also received a C during her evaluation, showing that a low first rating does not mean it’s the end of the world.
