The pilot episode of Mnet's 'I-LAND' is already trending worldwide.
On June 26 KST, Mnet's new survival program featuring Big Hit Label's CEO Bang Si Hyuk, Rain, and Zico premiered worldwide on YouTube. From the very first episode, seven out of the twenty-three trainees failed to make it into I-LAND based on their entrance performances. Some fans of the show immediately took to Twitter to share their comments.
The entrance performances were carefully monitored by the producers and the other trainees. The covers comprised hit songs such as NCT U's "The 7th Sense", MONSTA X's "Shoot Out", TOMORROW x TOGETHER's "Crown", and more.
The seven trainees who did not receive the minimum number of votes from the rest of the contestants were sent to a different structure in the training camp, a place called 'GROUND'. These contestants will have to exit the camp every evening and return the next morning, and are only allowed wear the training uniforms designated by 'I-LAND'.
Since the I-LAND structure currently has four extra trainees, the next episodes will feature the boys voting each other off in order to limit the number to twelve.
