MBC to launch a new boy group survival show this summer with an 'outdoor' concept


According to media outlet reports on May 25, MBC has partnered up with Yeo Woon Hyuk PD of Mystic Story and Think Entertainment to launch a new boy group survival program, set to air some time later this summer.

Reportedly, the survival show will take on a never-before-seen, "outdoor" concept, combining a boy group survival competition with a reality format. The program is currently seeking contestants through nation-wide auditions. 

Meanwhile, Yeo Woon Hyuk PD of Mystic Story is known for variety programs like 'Match Made In Heaven' and 'Knee Drop Guru'. Think Entertainment will head the program's production. The new series is expected to launch by August of this year.

So far, MBC is also believed to be working on a global girl group audition program in partnership with Han Dong Chul PD of Mnet's 'Show Me The Money' and 'Unpretty Rapstar'. MBC has yet to reveal additional details on this upcoming new girl group audition series. Competing broadcasting stations SBS and Mnet are also currently gearing up to launch idol audition programs later this year - SBS's 'Loud' and Mnet's 'Girls Planet 999'.

What’s the point of it tho? I don’t wanna sad mad or anything

But let’s be honest- survival shows doesn’t usually end up well- the groups doesn’t even get that much attention for example:1the9,To1 and etc

They only groups that got attention are produce ones but even they didn’t end up well because of rigging and contract time

I-land too I mean enhypen is doing great thankfully! and so does other trainees from that show but it’s mainly because it was related to Bighit too

So yeh doesn’t make sense to play with young people’s hopes and dreams

So they’re gonna keep producing more bg or gg and ruin their dreams huh? They’ll win a spot in the group and then the will end up not getting enough attention or n out getting promoted enough so in the end all of their effort will *POOF* be gone just like that
