Here are seven "Girls Planet 999" contestants that were eliminated that fans are upset to see leave the show.
1. Shim Seungeun

Sadly, she did not make the cut. Her cell ranked 21st and was ultimately eliminated. She will return to her company, MNH Entertainment, and her group, BVNDIT.

She stunned people with her dance ability, sharp visuals, and attractive aura on stage. She was expected to be a shining all-rounder on the show, able to sing, rap, and dance.
Sadly, You Dayeon's cell ranked 19th and was eliminated on the show. However, she ranked 14 out of the 33 K-Group trainees, which is even higher than some of the contestants who entered the next round. Before the show, You Dayeon was a member of LIPBUBBLE and competed on "Show Me the Money."
3. Lee Sunwoo
Lee Sunwoo garnered attention for her role as the main vocal for Team 1 in "FIESTA." The trainee was able to digest the difficult high-notes of the song, and her ability impressed the judges and the audience. She has been acknowledged for her vocal ability since day one of the show when she was evaluated with the song "Wow Thing."

4. Lee Rayeon
Lee Rayeon, a member of FANATICS, shined as the leader and main vocalist of Team 2 for "The Fifth Season (SSFWL)."
