On November 11, KBS2’s idol rebooting program “The Unit” continued on with auditions.
Girl group Matilda auditioned on the show with hope for another chance in the spotlight. Before Maltida’s performance, the judges asked member Dana if she was the daughter of famous folk singer Park Hak Gi, to which she replied “Yes, that is correct.”
Matilda then put on a captivating group performance of Christina Aguilera’s “Show Me How You Burlesque,” earning a total of five boots from the audience.
After their performance, Rain said he heard Matilda’s biggest wish is to become busy. Member Semi explained, “Last year we promoted three songs. However, the results were not good so we have been resting for a year now. Every day we would talk about how we want to become so busy we can say ‘I wish we could stop being so busy.”
Fellow judge Hwang Chi Yeol offered the girl group advice saying, “You guys have been resting for one year, but I rested for nine. I am now busy promoting to the point I barely have any time to rest. You guys are going to become like that too.”
The judges then reviewed each member individually. Sebyul received two boots from the judges, and showed off her happiness in a dance, making the judges and audience laugh. Dana and Semi each received four boots from the judges, and followed with their own displays of excitement. Finally, member Haena received three reboots, sending all four members of Matilda to the next stage of the show.
