An affiliate of the show stated to media, “With competition right around the corner, the 12 members are in hard practice mode. They are a group of singers that have failed to see true spotlight, so this will be quite the competition, with the girls doing everything they can to grasp this opportunity.”
In the show, the 12 girls will be ranked, and a winner determined.
Five “gurus” — Tak Jae Hoon, Jang Woo Hyuk, Chun Myung Hoon, Lee Ji Hye, Seo In Young — will be assisting the girls, giving them support and advice regarding life in entertainment, as well as feedback on their performances.
“Girl Spirit” will be hosted by comedian Jo Se Ho and INFINITE’s Sunggyu.
“For those in their teens and twenties, this will be a chance to see different performances from artists that they like,” said producer Ma Gun Young, “and for older generations, this is an opportunity to discover hidden talents and break their preconceptions of idol singers.”
