A program for idols who debuted but failed to get popular will be aired on KBS2 soon.
Recently, from Mnet’s “Super Star K” to “Produce 101” and “IDOL School”, there have been lots of programs to foster entertaining rookies. However, this program, “The Unit: Idol Rebooting Project” is quite different from those programs in terms of ‘Cast’. “The Unit” is a program for idols who failed to get popular even after debut, as you can see it through the title of it literally. Why did they choose to make this program? The reason why is right on the huge popularity and big size of attention those kinds of programs have received.
Every year, 30~40 idol groups debuted but only do a few of them get popular. It’s very difficult for rookie idols to get attention from people among plenty of fancy idols. Even after they got a little popular, if they grew apart from the core of attention, they failed to stay on people’s mind. Easy come and easy go is the nature of K-Pop idols world.
Then, how can they overcome those harsh time? What’s important is ‘Opportunity’, not the ‘Ability’ or ‘Skills’ anymore. They trained enough, are good at dancing, acting, singing enough, and look nice enough. It’s time to give a glimpse to those who get forgotten. Here’s a lineup to appear in this program. Check it out!
