BoA, the original K-Pop legend, will be leading the male trainees of "Produce 101 Season 2" as the new MC of the hit debut competition show.
According to broadcast insiders, BoA has taken on the role of the main MC for the upcoming second season of Mnet's "Produce 101". The program is a debut survival program, where trainees of various labels compete against each other for a seat in the final lineup of the debut project.
The first season featured female trainees, and eventually debuted the ever-popular I.O.I. It was lead by Jang GeunSuk as the main MC, but BoA will be taking on the reigns for the male version of the show. Producers revealed that it took a great amount of effort to recruit BoA as the MC. She had trained and debuted at such a young age, and quickly risen to the global status of "Asia's Star".
A source stated, "BoA is a multi-entertainer, as well as an industry senior of 17 years. She will make the perfect mentor to encourage the debut-hopeful trainees with practical and realistic advice."
The first filming for the upcoming show will take place on February 26th, and the first episode will air sometime soon in March.
