Already having an audition program of their own, SBS has decided to create their own version of the latter type of program with their upcoming pilot, 'Super Match'! SBS revealed, "We're going to air the pilot program 'Super Match' around mid-next month. Tomorrow, we're having our first recording. The broadcast will be a test, but it is most likely that it'll become a regular show."
'Super Match' will be more like 'Immortal Song' in that it won't be eliminating its contestants like 'I Am A Singer' does, but rather picking a winner every week. It also won't be a live broadcast. There are 2 teams made up of 5 singers each for a hoobae vs. sunbae type of battle. The participants that have been named so far are Yang Hee Eun, YB, Lee Seung Hwan, Kim Tae Woo, Kim Ye Rim, Bobby Kim, Dynamic Duo, Clazziquai, and 2NE1's CL.
The first recording will take place today, and the show will start airing in mid-August!
