It looks like the rumored new survival program produced by Mnet in conjunction with JYP Entertainment will be to launch a new male idol group!
A representative from a variety show department said, "JYP and Mnet will be joining hands to start a new survival program for a male idol group. It will have a completely different personality compared to the second season of 'Sixteen' that was prematurely 'revealed', and is designed to create a male group."
The program is expected to air some time in the second half of 2017. However, it appears that the group will not immediately make their debut after finishing the survival program. The representative said, "The program might air within the second half of this year, and [the group will] possibly make their debut next year. In regard to this issue, nothing has been decided in detail."
Are you excited to see the new survival program?
