Hui, who competes under his first name Lee HoeTaekproved a popular contestant on the show and was ranked highest in his group in the third episode.
As the show progresses, his chances of debuting in the final cast continue to increase. A post on a popular Korean online community forum recently went viral when key comments questioned Hui’s participation in the show.
Some of the main commenters argued that his participation was unfair because he was still a member of an active K-pop group, which they felt robbed an opportunity for someone who had never debuted.
Others criticized Hui for wearing his ears with PENTAGON’s fandom name, which some netizens said would, among other things, increase votes for Hui from his group’s existing fandom.
- “It’s kind of weird because there are trainees that came out after the breakup. It’s not that they failed. He has a band to go back to so honestly I don’t know why he came (this show) ㅜ”
- “It was wrong of him to come onto the ‘Boys Planet’ stage with his headset with the PENTAGON fandom written on it. ㅋㅋ What does he think ‘Boys Planet’ is? Legendary Fraud »
- “(Idols) born in 2002 and 2003 are about to debut, so why is a player from 1993 coming out and trying to steal his spot?
C’est vraiment trop hahahaha”
- “He doesn’t want to give up his group, he also wants to steal opportunities from young people ㅜㅜ”
- “He didn’t even leave his group. He is completely different from Oh Sungmin and Cha Woongki.
After news of the post went viral, other netizens quickly came out to defend it.
Many pointed out that idols from other active K-pop groups had participated in similar programs in the past, so they felt that this similar circumstance shouldn’t be a problem.
Others shared that they sympathized with Hui’s efforts to revitalize his group and believed he had the best opportunity to further his music career through competitions.
People who say Whew should just go back to Pentagon and promote with them instead of being with bp… Tell me how many of you are really interested in PTG coming back or even listening to their songs? Otherwise, shut up and walk away…

Tbh, I’m a little frustrated with Hui as the leader. The Pentagon is as talented as super talented. But their current popularity doesn’t match what they can offer. You should have gone higher. Hui knows this, which is why he feels so unfair about the situation. He has to do something

The comment about Hui wearing his in-ear monitor for the klmr stage is by far the dumbest thing I’ve read! Like previous idols from previous seasons, they didn’t wear theirs lol
