    I'm wondering how many of the contestants will be Korean or at least speak Korean.  And if it's a kpop superstar, will there primary focus be to promote in Korea?  Also, which company in Korea will they be signed with?

    (Joking) How about (K-pop Rapper) IRON vs. TOMMY LEE in a 'Rap Down / Smack Down' BATTLE  for the K-POP AGES !!! ... The AMAZON TV Show can be hosted by ... (drum roll) ... HEATHER LOCKLEAR (TOMMY LEE's ex-wife) ...

    Just curious of how much the producers actually know about Korea and the culture and the industry. The Snoop Dog & Taeyeon incident showed us that there are massive rifts between the countries' music

    http://www.allkpop.com/article/2016/12/wiz-khalifa-claims-taeyeon-lied-about-mama-collaboration-cancellation ... You mean WIZ KHALIFA (not 'Dog the Rapper') and TAEYEON. No 'big deal' on the 'mix up' here.

    Why is everyone already bashing on the show? Honestly I think itll be interesting how the whole program will be handled and how these American producers can spice up the cliche survival program format.

    I believe that you that you are suggesting that these 'REALITY SHOWS' are *OFTEN* 'STAGED AND RIGGED' to be 'entertaining' to the (viewers = 'suckers' ?) audience. It is a TV SHOW. The AUDIENCE for it may NOT be very many who speak HANGUL, or are even of ASIAN heredity in ANY WAY.

    As a reason WHY ; how about because AMAZON thinks that they can earn some MONEY by creating this TV SHOW? ... Also, these 'Purity of K-pop' comments are ALWAYS AMUSING (to me).

    But, IF AMAZON wanted to 'preserve' the 'PURITY of K-pop' ; how about having (Rapper) IRON and his CHEESY ex-GF featured on the AMAZON TV Show. In the name of K-pop *PURITY* ... ...=^=... http://www.allkpop.com/article/2017/03/rapper-iron-tells-his-side-of-the-story-after-violent-assault-arrest

    "Purity of Kpop?" What are you talking about? And what does Iron's assault charge have to do with anything? All I said was let Kpop keep their own identity. Whenever Kpop becomes Westernized like 'Make it Pop' in Nickelodeon or 'Dramaworld', it's a little awkward. You went into a whole different direction with this.

    To be honest, my above message posts 'come off' as a bit more 'antagonistic' than I would wish. I regret that. I appreciate that you 'called me out' on it ...
