MBC's new idol audition program is currently being called 'Creativeteen Undernineteen', according to reports on July 25.
Back in June, first rumors of MBC's new idol audition program claimed that the broadcasting station would be partnering up with MBK Entertainment's CEO Kim Kwang Soo. While MBC has not addressed rumors of working with Kim Kwang Soo, it seems that the reported idol audition program is progressing as planned.
'Creativeteen Undernineteen' will be launching global auditions beginning in the first week of November. Auditions take place not only in Korea but also in the United States, Japan, China, and more. The show is looking for talented individuals in 3 areas of specialty - rap, vocal, and performance. All contestants must be in their 10's, and the top contestants of each area will come together to create a brand new idol group.
The broadcast will reportedly also begin in the first week of November, at the same time as auditions. 'Creativeteen Undernineteen' is MBC's first audition program since the end of 'Birth of a Great Star'. What do you think about the program's format?
