Mnet said on Feb 5, "The program concept, composition, process, editing method and set design elements of" Idol Trainer ", which started broadcasting on January 19 at 8 pm local time in China, will be broadcasted by Korea Mnet in 2016 and 2017- they are deeply sorry for the similarity from Produce 101.
