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

krell exoapink4tw Wednesday, April 5, 2017 ... 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.

their is nothing korean about this!

MeniNova RAS33 Thursday, April 6, 2017

That is true.

Let Kpop be Kpop. Why try to Americanize it?

RAS33 k_kid Wednesday, April 5, 2017


krell k_kid Wednesday, April 5, 2017

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).

krell k_kid Wednesday, April 5, 2017

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* ... ...=^=...

k_kid krell Thursday, April 6, 2017

"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.

krell k_kid Thursday, April 6, 2017

Okay ; I see the point that you are making it here.

krell k_kid Thursday, April 6, 2017

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 ...

JohnF Tuesday, April 4, 2017
