Lee Hae In, a former contestant of Mnet‘s ‘Produce 101’ Season 1 and ‘Idol School’, will finally make her official debut this year.


Lee Hae In posted a message on her Instagram account on the morning of July 2, along with a new profile picture with a pure vibe. She wrote:

“Hello, I’m Hae In. I’m here today because I have a news to tell you!
It’s just that I’ve been working with the The Groove Company.
I’m working on my project to debut in the second half of this year!
I always thank my family for being with me till the very end of my long wait.
Lastly, to the fans who waited for me more than anyone else, I love you.
I’d like to say thank you more than anyone else.
I’ll always be a Hae In who doesn’t forget her earnestness.
Please look forward to it!”

Lee Hae In competed in ‘Produce 101‘ Season 1 in 2016 and worked in the project group I.B.I. The following year, she appeared on ‘Idol School’ and tried again on a survival program, but failed to make her debut. Since then, as ‘Idol School’ has been embroiled in a controversy over its result manipulation, Lee Hae In has expressed her position and was empathized by the public.


Her current agency, The Groove Company is known for managing Moon Jong Up, a former member of the group B.A.P., and actor Lee Se Chang.
