Mnet’s “Superstar K” will be opening the door to its seventh season on March 5 by receiving sign-ups for the first round.
Mnet revealed the logo for “Superstar K7” and its first teaser. The short clip contained the audition program’s determination to create an even more entertaining season than the past six years by depicting themselves as seven-year-old children.
In the teaser, interviews of young children that represent the producers and Lee Seung Chul are comically dubbed by mature voices. “Little Lee Seung Chul,” wearing oversized sunglasses, is slouching on the couch in Lee Seung Chul’s signature “Welcome” position. Through these children, “Superstar K” is releasing the young, energetic vibe they are hoping to produce this season.
The teaser’s main message is that they are trying to make a platform where contestants can play the music they enjoy and viewers can be both touched and entertained.
Mnet representatives said, “We will be trying to actively connect with viewers through a spirit of youth and technology in the seventh season of ‘Superstar K,’ and expressed this determination in the teaser as well. You will be able to see ‘Superstar K’ progress accordingly to the development of a digital society.”
Several other changes to the program, such as a different sign-up method, will be revealed in the near future.
After regional preliminary rounds, held from mid April to July, the actual show will air in August.
