It seems like another K-Pop audition show is coming our way.
Amazon is currently in negotiations to launch their first ever K-Pop audition show and they’ve roped in the producers for reality shows “Hell’s Kitchen” and “American Idol”. “K-POP: The Search for the Next K-POP Superstar” will also be Amazon’s first competition series on their streaming service.
In the show, contestants from all over the world will be required to develop and improve their singing, dancing, acting, and styling skills. Of course, learning to speak Korean is also a must, but if you can’t, fret not. The show will be sending participants to South Korea for an immersive Korean language program so they can learn to sing in the language.
There will also be a panel of judges and mentors to help with the training and performances in every episode. Those who fail to impress them will then be sent home. At the end of the journey, the winners will be offered exclusive contracts with major music agencies.
The executive producers set to work on the production are Arthur Smith (who worked on “Hell’s Kitchen”), Toby Gorman (who worked on “American Idol”), Arnold Rifkin (who worked on “Live Free Or Die Hard”), Jesse James (from Mighty Loud Entertainment), and Justin Lee (from CJ Entertainment).
