Zodiac Sign: Scorpio (Western), Rabbit (Eastern)

Produce 101 Final Ranking (Episode 11): #6
Notable Produce 101 Performances: 10 out of 10 (Team 2), Get Ugly, Never, Hands on Me

Claim to Fame on the Show: His dancing skills and talent for choreography making. Although he was initially in the lower rankings, he received the most votes on his dance team during the position evaluation.  This was particularly impressive because all of the others were in the Top 10 and he was ranked at #32 at the time (he beat out Jihoon, Samuel, Seongwu, and Daniel).  After that, his charismatic presence onstage but cute demeanor offstage made him rise through the ranks.

Post-Disbandment:

Woojin and fellow Wanna One member Daehwi debuted in Brand New Music’s boy group AB6IX on May 22, 2019. The group also includes Lim Youngmin and Kim Donghyun, who also competed on Produce 101 and promoted as a duo while Wanna One was active. AB6IX has had a lot of success in their first year of debut with a debut mini album, a full album, and a first concert in one of the biggest venues in Seoul. They most recently dropped a mini album featuring solo songs for each of the members.
