'Produce 101' is a group talent show series on Mnet in Korea that premiered in 2016, where the audience selects a band among 101 trainees through online and live voting with multiple elimination rounds. The program's host as well as experienced and famous mentors, such as Lee Dong-wook (Guardian: The Lonely and Great God), also give the participants grades and guidance according to their performances. On top of this, the trainees have to live together, receive trainings, complete missions and compete against each other to be a part of the final 11 members, who will be promoted as a group for five years.

In the past seasons, 'Produce 101' has made I.O.I, Wanna One and IZ*One popular across Asia, proving its popularity among fans. New to this series is the X rank, the lowest rank that makes a participant vulnerable to elimination, which will make the show more exciting and breathtaking. With the new theme song 'Don't', this season's group of contestants includes trainees under company labels, debuted idols, and individual trainees, including the most popular trainee Cha Jun-ho, Lee Yoo-jin from the TV drama "Sky Castle" and former WINNER member Nam Tae-Hyun's brother Nam Donghyun, as well as Han Seung-woo and Choi Byung-chan from VICTION.
