Every year, there are idols and idol groups that just fly under the radar for one reason or another. The amount of groups that go unnoticed or have a small fanbase is astounding.
KBS is planning on launching a gigantic project that will cost approximately 7 billion KRW (6.2 million USD) to give these idols a second change. The title that’s currently being tossed around for the series is “The Final 99 Match”.
For this even, they will be recruiting a total of 500 idols, 250 male and 250 female, that have already made their debut, but didn’t perform well as a whole. They will not be taking any trainees, just seasoned idols. The end result of the show will be two 9 member teams, a male team and a female team.
As of now, many fans feel that 500 will be too much since there won’t be enough screen time for everyone.
