"Produce 101" Season 2 is not only full of controversies and malicious rumors. People can learn a lot too from its contestants. Recently, a heart-warming story about Jo Jin Hyung and his struggle in the Mnet show leaked in an online community to prove that nothing can stand in the way between him and his dream.

CS Entertainment talent, Jo Jin Hyung, who is currently participating in "Produce 101" Season 2 is suffering from a pretty serious illness that needs a thorough treatment on a daily basis. According to Soompi, the story of Jo Jin Hyung is brought online through an article in an online community by someone who claimed to be a friend of the trainee. Based on the story, Jo Jin Hyung was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes since he was just a kid. However, this friend stated that Jo Jin Hyung is the kind of a person who's always determined to pursue his dream, so he couldn't care less about his condition.

Instead of mourning on his condition for having insulin injections five times a day, Jo Jin Hyung works hard to make the best out of his performance on "Produce 101" Season 2. His hard work paid off; starting off at the 85th position, now he jumps from class D to class B. Jo Jin Hyung's group battle video that was uploaded on April 24 has been watched over 200,000 times, helping him to become one of the shining stars on the show.  

Jo Jin Hyung previously participated as a lead vocal in 2015 MBC Music Show "Super Idol" Season 1. However, he had to leave the show due to his health condition.

Meanwhile, "Produce 101" Season 2 is under a discussion to hold a team concert. However, the production team hasn't come to a final decision yet. If the show ends up with the idea, there are still problems that they need to come through such as logistical issues.
