You guys, I got news
As 2017 approaches, we might be seeing the last of IOI, but we definitely haven’t seen the last of MBC and their experiement with 101 trainees. It has been confirmed that the TV station is currently in talks with several labels with a male verison of Produce 101 in mind.
With the amount of boy groups that debuted recently, it is unlikely that some of the big companies will take part in this project. In fact, SM Entertainment and YG Entertainment have already announced that their trainees won’t be joining this project, as expected – just like what happened on the first season. This could be a chance for smaller companies to show the industry their hidden cards. However, I believe it’s going to be quite difficult to come up with 101 trainees under labels willing to take part in this in such short period of time, as filming is set to start next January and airing time around February/March 2017.
I have to say, I’m quite excited to see how this will workout. More than I was before Produce 101.
