The ranking of male trainees for this week's "Produce 101" Korean survival TV show has experienced major changes.

He dethroned favorite Park "Wink Boy" Ji Hoon, who dropped to third place from the top spot.

Kang Daniel also made a surprising move by grabbing second place, up from his fifth place ranking last week.

The biggest surprise is Kim Samuel, who dropped 15 spots to 17th from second place.

Another NU'EST member, Hwang Min Hyun, took the fourth spot, making his way from 11th place.

Cube Entertainment's Lai Guan Lin finished fifth this week from ninth while Fantagio's Ong Sung Woo dropped two places to sixth.
