Jonathan Thona singled out member Lee Jeonghyeon, acknowledging his remarkable talent that had earned him a spot in the finals despite limited screen time on the show.
Lee Jeonghyeon candidly shared that he had entered “Boys Planet” with high expectations, having put tremendous effort into his practice sessions.
However, he expressed his disappointment in being barely featured on television, feeling that he was mainly shown for his reactions rather than his performances. He recalled a single instance where he appeared on TV for just one second during a performance.
In response, Lee Jeonghyeon’s fellow EVNNE members acknowledged his unwavering dedication to reach the finals despite the challenges posed by his limited screen time.

As EVNNE’s debut date approaches, fans eagerly anticipate the group’s future endeavors and the insights they continue to offer about their experiences on “Boys Planet.”
