In a recent interview, YG Entertainment’s CEO, Yang Hyun Suk, revealed that a new survival competition Mix & Match will start airing on September 11, on MNET. Six lucky winners from Mix & Match will debut in the company’s newest boy band named iKON. So what can we expect from YG’s newest competition show Mix & Match?
he show will see nine competitors, where only three of them are already confirmed to be members of iKON. The three members that are already part of iKON are Team B’s B.I., Bobby, and Kim Jin Hwan. The rest of the group will be formed by the rest of Team B, Song Yun Hyeon, Koo Jun Hoe, and Kim Dong Hyuk, plus new trainees Jung Jin Hyeong, Jung Chan Woo, and Yang Hong Seok, who will compete for their spot.
If the show is similar to WIN: WHO IS NEXT? (as it seems to be on the teaser for the first episode), the competition will be as hard as YG’s previous survival show. In the first teaser, we can already see them training really hard, and even shedding a few tears.
Team B is, of course, already familiar with a competition like this. They previously won most of the challenges on WIN: WHO IS NEXT?, and they will definitely be tough competition for the three new trainees.
