During the press conference, CJ E&M's music department director Ahn Seok Jun opened up about the grand scale of the show, saying, "'BOYS24' is a monumental project for which we've invested 25,000,000,000 KR₩ (approximately 200,000,000 USD) in. We thought about it long and hard...These converging format performances include music, circus, storytelling, grand-scale set technology, and more." 


He continued, "We wanted to create the most notable, long-format performances. So we've converged K-Pop from the Hallyu trend and large group choreography. The 1st round of auditions will take place during 'BOYS24', and then we will select the final 6 after 1 full year of performances to form an idol group."


This show is no joke! The premiere airs this coming June 18!

    I think it is 20,000,000! That would make a lot more sense. Even with EXO and Big Bang's level of success reaching a BEP of 200,000,000 is not a walk in the park.

    200 MILLION dollars.... yeah right. I think they tacked on some extra zeros to make it sound more "extravagant"
