SBS has released details about its Lunar New Year weekend special program, “The CEO Is Watching,” an idol competition show.
Company presidents of 15 different leading entertainment companies, including those from JYP Entertainment, FNC Entertainment, and Cube Entertainment, have personally stepped forward, in light of the “strongest idol group” being decided. The CEOs of these companies, who have raised countless of successful idol stars, chose stamina, intelligence, personal skills, luck, and teamwork as the “five virtues that an idol must have.”
The participating idol members take part in a preliminary survey amongst themselves, choosing who they believe to be the potential winners in each of the “five virtues.” BTS’s Rap Monster, who is known as a “sexy-brain idol” with his IQ of 148, receives the most votes in the “brains” category. Known for her eloquent language abilities, EXID’s Hani is trailing right behind him. There are rumors that amidst the fight for victory between these two idols, who are known for being the representative “brains” of their respective groups, there will be a surprising result that exceeds all expectations.
SBS’s “The CEO Is Watching,” a Lunar New Year weekend special, is a program that will choose the strongest idol group based on a series of competitions. AOA, BTS, EXID, BTOB are only some of the 20 different idol groups that will be participating. These idol groups hail from 15 different entertainment companies, for a total of 140 idol participants.
The five competitions, corresponding to the “five virtues,” that are held in order to determine the winner will be revealed later. The presidential board members of each respective company rolled up their sleeves to personally direct everything from their representatives to winning strategies.
“The CEO Is Watching” will air during the long Lunar New Year holiday, in February, but a concrete airtime has yet to be finalized.
