On June 4, 2020, Youngbin was introduced as a participant in the CJ ENM and Big Hit Entertainment's then upcoming survival show I-LAND. On the first episode, he performed "Crown" by TXT, along with Sunoo and Jake and was able to enter "I-LAND". Because of an average score of 59, half of the I-LANDER team had to be sent to "Ground" in the third episode. Youngbin was the first one to be sent as he was voted to leave by everyone besides himself. Youngbin was able to enter "I-LAND" in the fourth episode following the Ground's performance of "Fire" by BTS. However, on the sixth episode, he was voted back to "Ground" with a total of 11 people voting him back. On the seventh episode, he was unfortunately eliminated from the show and was unable to participate in Part 2.
