[NEWS] Mnet trying out different genres… Will try out an EDM girl group
At first the program was said to be hip hop oriented, but now it’s EDM.
Mnet will be producing an EDM girl group. ‘PRODUCE 101′ scheduled for after ‘Unpretty Rapstar 2′. A total of 101 trainees coming from different agencies will go through this survival show. Finally after a year 11 members will be chosen. Mnet will introduce an EDM girl group which is different from usual.
▶ ‘PRODUCE 101′, another daebak hit after ‘Sixteen’, ‘Show Me’ and ‘Unpretty’?
‘Unpretty Rapstar 2′ will start in September and once it ends ‘PRODUCE 101′ will start. Mnet with this indie program will be producing for the first time a new music type. A lot of people are wondering if this new program will be as successful as ‘SuperstarK’, ‘Show Me the Money’ and ‘Unpretty Rapstar’.
Mnet stated that ‘PRODUCE 101′ will be different from JYP’s girl group debut project ‘Sixteen’ which was broadcasted in May. The selection of the final 11 members will be made by making trainees from different agencies compete with each other. That is the main difference between ‘Sixteen’ (and this program) as it only involved trainees from JYP. It’s also important to note that the genre (of this program) is EDM. This program is gaining interest not only for the amount of trainees which will be involved in it, but also for it to choose EDM as it’s music genre.
▶ What if the 11 final members each have different schedules given by their respective agencies?
The final 11 members selected will be affiliated with Mnet for a year. So agencies need to take that into account. They will gain recognition while the program is airing and the outcome after a year will be significant.
It is possible that the 11 members will all be from different agencies. They could be a member of a girl group or a solo artist. Those who don’t make into the final selection will also be able to gain from this program.
One official said ‘By introducing trainees through ‘PRODUCE 101′ there are a lot of things to benefit from it. It’s a great opportunity for trainees to get attention from the public once they debut in rookie girl groups.’
▶ The genre is EDM
There is no idol group which only focuses on EDM (electronic dance music). Even though some include EDM songs in their albums, there is no girl group which only pursues EDM. Having an ‘EDM girl group’ is really unique.
‘PRODUCE 101′ will probably become famous with their EDM genre. Park Myeongsu who gained interest from the public after choosing to showcase an EDM song in ‘Infinite Challenge’ showed that this EDM genre is likely to become more successful in the future.
Mnet is working with a variety of music genres first hip hop, then pop and finally EDM through ‘PRODUCE 101′. It proves it by introducing ‘PRODUCE 101′ after their DJ EDM survival show ‘Headliner’ which will start on the 8th of September.
Mnet’s official explained ‘We’re aiming at introducing many different music genres. That’s why we’re introducing a new DJ survival show called ‘Headliner’ and a girl group which will try out many different genres such as EDM.’
