As soon as Mnet’s new program “Idol School” has released its teaser, it became a hot potato. Some girls were highlighted in the teaser, getting a single shot for a quite long. Because some were so highlighted, people were able to recognize some.
The requirements of the applicant of “Idol School” is girls who are not currently in any entertainments. However, that DID NOT mean girls FROM entertainment cannot join. Girls who have failed to debut in a entertainment and has ended their contract were also qualified to join the program.
Because those girls were able to apply, in the teaser of the program, some of the familiar faces were found. Girls who are from the 3 major entertainments SM, JYP and YG are being an issue. Most of the girls from the entertainments are those who almost made it to the debut but have failed and left the company.
