Mentors Are Ready For The Upcoming “Produce 48” This Friday
On June 11th, Mnet “Produce 48” held a press conference with the director of Mnet Kim YongBum, PD Ahn JunYoung, Lee SeungGi, FTISLAND‘s Lee HongKi, SoYou, Cheetah, Bae YoonJung, Choi YoungJun, May J Lee and the participating 96 trainees from South Korea and Japan.
SoYou revealed that even though she is not the one participating in the show but as a vocal trainer, she feels excited and nervous at the same time. As for Lee HongKi, he took a long time thinking how to give vocal lessons to the trainees since he is a male vocalist. However, he continued by sharing that he will teach the trainees the know-hows which had helped him throughout the years as the vocalist of FTISLAND.
In this upcoming “Produce 48”, 12 girls out of the total 96 trainees will be chosen to debut as a brand new girl group. It was also revealed that viewers will be able to vote for the girls regardless of their nationality. In addition to that, the broadcast of “Produce 48” will also take place at the same time in Japan.
Apart from the loyal viewers who are excited for the show, the mentors are also hyped up. Lee HongKi uploaded pictures of him with the rest of the mentors on his Instagram last night.
They seemed to be already comfortable and close with each other! He also told his fans to watch the broadcast this coming Friday.
The new season will premiere on June 15th 11PM KST on Mnet.
