[OSEN=최나영 기자] The first preview video of producer Han Dong-cheol’s new TV show “MIXNINE” has been unveiled, to draw keen attention once again.
The first preview video was unveiled on the official website of JTBC’s “MIXNINE” today (Nov. 23) at 11AM, to further raise fans’ anticipation.
In the preview, YG Entertainment’s head producer YANG HYUN SUK, CL who is a member of judge panel, and MC Noh Hong-cheol visit many entertainment companies including large ones that have already nurtured top stars and small ones located in the mountainside. Trainees found out in the process are shown in the preview, to arouse viewers’ curiosity.
When YANG HYUN SUK talks about his unusual criteria for evaluation, saying, “I’ll focus on the appearance of trainees”, girl trainees who look as pretty as IU and Suzy appear at a perfect timing. Even in a short time, trainees unleash their talent and abilities in the preview video, so the show is expected to captivate many viewers.
In addition, rapper Jang Moon-bok who boasted his talent in Mnet’s “Super Star K” and “Produce 101 Season 2” appears in the preview video as well, surprising many people.
Notably, a president of a music label who is introduced as the biggest rival against YANG HYUN SUK appears at the end of the preview. He is expected to be songwriter Brave Brothers whose talent was first discovered by YANG HYUN SUK.
There have been rumors in the music scene that the two have a sour relationship. So the two’s encounter for the purpose of discovering “new talents” will make “MIXNINE” show even more interesting.
“MIXNINE” is the first TV show created by producer Han Dong-cheol after he joined YG Entertainment. Han has produced popular music survival audition programs including “Produce 101” and “Show Me the Money 6”.
In “MIXNINE” show, YG’s head producer YANG HYUN SUK will select nine out of 400 trainees discovered from 70 entertainment companies across Korea. The nine will debut as a new idol group who will be the next-generation leader of K-Pop and Korean Wave. YANG formed the best judge panel with BIGBANG’s TAEYANG, CL, Zion.T, as well as special judge Park Jin Young.
There have been many survival audition programs so far, including “K-Pop Star”, “Super Star K”, and “Produce 101”. However, MIXNINE is the first-ever survival audition program in which the head of the judge directly visits small-and-medium-sized music labels to discover new talents. As such, MIXNINE is a new type of survival audition program with a whole new concept.
The first episode of “MIXNINE” will be aired on JTBC on October 29 at 4:50PM. Before the beginning of the broadcasting, on October 28, a showcase will be held at KINTEX in Ilsan, to unveil the cast and the title music for the first time.
