Mnet clarifies reports regarding the upcoming male version of reality idol group survival show “Produce 101.”
On October 28, a broadcast industry source initially announced that the male version of the show is aiming for a March 2017 premiere.
However, a source from Mnet corrected this claim shortly afterward, saying, “The broadcast date of the male version of ‘Produce 101’ has not been set. Discussions are still ongoing.”
“Produce 101” first broadcasted early this year, featuring 101 female trainees from 46 different agencies who competed to be part of an 11-member group that eventually debuted as project girl group I.O.I.
Currently, I.O.I is promoting their final album “Miss Me?” and is garnering awards for title track “Very Very Very.”
