Rain Talks About How “The Unit” Mentors Prioritize Potential Over Skill
On the October 27 broadcast of KBS2’s “Entertainment Weekly,” Rain appeared to answer questions about the idol rebooting program “The Unit.”
Rain, as the MC and one of the mentors on “The Unit,” revealed the judging standards of the mentors on the show. He said, “The six of us promised to not prioritize existing skills of the contestants, but rather their potential.”
Rain continued, “We decided to look at the participants’ potential. If they have the guts, perseverance, and determination, then let’s look at that first. Skills come second. If there’s potential, then we have experts here to teach them.”
“The Unit” is an idol rebooting program that hopes to give lesser-known idol members a second chance at the spotlight. It will premiere on Saturday, October 28 at 9:15 p.m. KST.
