Mnet+BigHit new projectㅣ GlobalAudition released an introduction video.
I-LAND announced on May 8.
I-LAND is an observational reality show that depicts the birth process of the next generation of K-pop artists.
It’s going to be a new show that combines CJENM’s content production skills with Big Hit Entertainment’s artist production know-how.
In addition to a unique worldview not seen in existing music shows, the show depicts the process of collaboration and competition between the performers in various forms.
For this reason, Mnet went through a meticulous preparation process, including the creation of a separate, super-sized, dedicated space with a scale of approximately 3,000 square meters that incorporates I-Land’s unique worldview.
The show will start in June, but it remains to be seen if it will make its debut this year. The original plan was to debut a global boy group (made up of multinational members) this year and a girl group next year, but the start of the show was delayed due to the spread of the new corona.
I-LAND, a project prepared by CJ ENM and Big Hit Entertainment for nearly 2 years, has been receiving a lot of attention from K-POP fans.
