JYP Entertainment have terminated the contract of Produce X 101 contestant Yun Seo Bin, following recent conflicting reports of his behaviour before becoming part of the program.

There have been claims that the trainee had been a violent school bully in the past, while others have come to his defense saying the accusations are false. JYP have stated that they believe their policies have not been followed, and have thus decided to terminate Yun Seo Bin's contract, and confirming he will leave Produce X 101 too.

Yun Seo Bin had ranked No.12 in realtime polls after the show's first episode, though his evaluation segment had not aired yet on the show.
