Former “Produce 48” Contestant Chiba Erii To Appear On Mnet’s New Variety Show
AKB48 member and former “Produce 48” contestant Chiba Erii will be appearing in a new K-pop variety show from Mnet!
The new show, which is officially titled “UHSN,” will bring 10 female K-pop fans from various countries around the world to South Korea as foreign exchange students. In Korea, they will receive lessons from experts in singing, dancing, and Korean language and experience aspects of Korean culture such as the food, beauty, and fashion.
According to a source from Sports Kyunghyang, Chiba Erii will be one of the 10 exchange students and moved in to the dorm on April 9. Fans also spotted her photo in the short teaser that Mnet released for the show on April 8.
The producing director (PD) for the show stated, “We set up this program in recognition of the fact that there are many non-Koreans who love K-pop and want to learn more about it. We received many applications from all over the world and felt once again the global popularity of K-pop. Rather than helping spread knowledge about Korea around the world, we want to help these women take on new challenges in the name of their passion for Korean culture.”
The show will premiere sometime in May.
