Emcee, singer and actor Lee Seung Gi is the new host for MNet's latest idol project program Produce 48.
'Produce 48', which was unveiled to Korea and Japan through 2017 MAMA in Japan last November is a program whereby 96 of the idol stars of both countries will be competing for selection to the final girl group.
It will be the first project to be released in June with a project that combines the Japanese girl group 'AKB48' produced by Yasushi Akimoto, a Japanese producer undr the 'Produce 101' system, which is an idol selection program of Mnet.
What are my thoughts? Oh-no! Not another idol reboot project! We have too many similar idol projects from Produce 101 S1 and S2, Mix Nine, Stray Kids, The Unit..etc within 1-2 years. And a group of 48 members? That's just ridiculous. Example a song of 4 minutes will have 240 seconds where it's divided by 48 members to sing it? That literally means a member will have 5 seconds to sing...or probably none at all!
Put aside the song allocation...how do they divide their earnings for 48 members?
Each one earning a few dollars from ads.
Though I adore Seung Gi but it's just a no-no program for me...Am skipping the show.
