As part of the guerilla fan meet, each trainee gave a gift bag including a handwritten note to a fan. Park Sung Woo’s showed support for his fellow contestants.
“Hello! This is Park Sung Woo!
This time for Produce 101 Season 2, there are many handsome tall people and very skilled friends!! Compared to them I may be lacking a lot but I will continue to work hard to show everyone my best. I am coming into this with the mindset that this is my last work opportunity and I have a burning desire to close the gap [in skill between me and the other trainees].
