KBS' project to give 500 'failed' idols another chance will air in October

misc.
KBS has confirmed their giant project to give 'failed' idols another chance.


They will be going ahead with  'The Final 99 Match' (title pending) for idols who have debuted but didn't make it into the spotlight. The planned budget for the show is 7 billion KRW (approximately 6.2 million USD), and when the show was first reported in May, the show was still in the planning process. 


However, now the show has been confirmed, and has designated PDs. CP Han Kyung Chun of 'Music Bank' will be the main producer, and will be backed by 'Happy Together 3', 'Win Win', and 'Gag Concert's PD Park Ji Young, 'Human Condition's PD Won Seung Yeon, and 'Song Fight's PD Son Soo Hee.

They are recruiting 500 idols - 250 male and 250 female - that have already released songs. There will be two teams in the end made of 9 members (one male, one female). They will not be taking any trainees.


The show will air starting in October.
