At the beginning of the show, Jake didn’t immediately stand out. But he had great improvement week by week and managed to reach the top.
He even helped other contestants with their dance for the final test. This really helped with his confidence.
At the end of the show, the man born in 2002 ended up with third most votes. This means, he had successfully became part of the new group ENHYPEN.
With six other members, Jake made his debut in November 2020. They released an EP titled Border: Day One and a lead single Given-Taken.
The EP peaked at number two on Gaon Album Chart and the Japanese Oricon Albums Chart.
ENHYPEN would continue on their successful debut with more releases. In March 2021, they release the EP Border: Carnival.
