KBS launches huge program to give idols who never quite made it another chance
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.
