“BoA is an artist who has both charisma and a warm heart,” said Ahn Joon-young, the show’s director.
With 17 years in the music business under her belt, BoA will act as a mentor, deliver tasks to participants and announce the results of each competition.
“I’m very happy to join the second season of ‘Produce 101,’” said the 30-year-old singer.
The first season of “Produce 101” was launched in 2016 and featured 101 female trainees from local music labels. Through fierce competition, the 11-member project girl group I.O.I was formed, though it has since disbanded. Actor Jang Keun-suk hosted the first season.
The new season will air in the first half of this year, featuring 101 male idol star wannabes competing to be part of a project boy band. The show’s first recording is set to take place Sunday.
