Local broadcaster SBS is teaming up with K-pop management company F&F Entertainment to bring you the much-awaited “Universe Ticket.” This fantastic show aims to discover eight incredible members who will join a brand-new girl group, managed by F&F for the next two and a half years. What’s more, the audition saw applications pouring in from 128 countries, including places as diverse as New Zealand, Germany, Mexico, and India. The anticipation is palpable as we await the grand premiere of “Universe Ticket” in November!

“Universe Ticket” is all set to introduce us to an array of exceptionally talented contestants from all over the globe. Among them, you might recognize familiar faces like Eunchae (Kwon Chae-won) from the now-defunct K-pop girl group DIA and trot sensation Lim Seo-won. The producer of the show, Lee Hwan-jin, expressed his surprise at the overwhelming response and stated that this proves the immense global influence of K-pop. With such a diverse pool of talent, “Universe Ticket” promises to take K-pop to new heights.

But that’s not all! Brace yourselves for another thrilling audition show, “Fan Pick,” which is slated to air in the second half of this year. In a unique twist, the “players” of this program will be none other than the fans themselves, assuming the role of judges who will handpick the members of a sensational new K-pop group. To top it off, the charming leader of Super Junior, Leeteuk, will grace the show as the MC, adding his signature flair to the proceedings. His outstanding hosting skills are sure to make “Fan Pick” an unforgettable experience.

As we fast forward to 2024, cable channel Mnet is gearing up to unveil the second season of “I-LAND” – “I-LAND 2” – that brought us the immensely popular boy band ENHYPEN in 2020. This time around, they’re searching for the next big girl group! If you dream of becoming a K-pop idol, this is your chance, as Mnet is accepting applications from girls born before January 1, 2011, regardless of their nationality.

In a groundbreaking move, the renowned music producer Teddy Park, credited with creating multiple chart-toppers for BLACKPINK, will take center stage as the “master producer” in “I-LAND 2.” His brilliant touch is bound to redefine K-pop music once again, and Mnet is determined to break all barriers and create a fresh, innovative landscape for K-pop with this show.

WAKEONE Entertainment, the home of the talented boy group ZEROBASEONE (ZB1) formed on Mnet’s “Boys Planet,” will be the managing powerhouse for the new girl group born from “I-LAND 2.” The amalgamation of Teddy Park’s brilliance and WAKEONE’s expertise guarantees an electrifying future for this upcoming K-pop sensation.
