IST ANNOUNCE JUDGES FOR NEW MALE IDOL SURVIVAL SHOW

Are you looking forward to it?

The Origin - A, B or What?, an upcoming IST Entertainment boy band survival show, debuted its latest teaser on February 16th, showing its panel of expert judges.


This documentary chronicles the journey of 13 aspiring boy band members as they battle it out for a spot in IST Entertainment's newest worldwide rookie group. This week, according to the program's latest teaser, trainees will battle in two teams - Team A and Team B - in front of the judges and audience members to demonstrate their talents.


Former 2NE1 member/solo artist Minzy, INFINITE member/solo artist Sunggyu, GOT7 member/solo artist Jay B, and Just Jerk's Kwak Yoon Young and Hwang Kyu Hong make up the judging panel for 'The Origin - A, B, or What?


A "Balance Game" will be used to determine the winner of each round of the survival challenge. As a part of each round, each trainee is evaluated to decide the team "Ace," who will receive a bonus and the worst performer, who will be removed from the competition.

An announcer named Park Sun Young will host the show, which premieres February 26 on MBN, Kakao TV, and 1theK's official YouTube channel. See the latest teaser for the survivor to learn more!
