Golden Child hasn’t made their debut yet, but Woollim Entertainment already has plans to endear them to the public via a reality show.
The label announced that the group’s will be introducing themselves to fans via a reality show titled “2017 Woollim Pick”.
The name of the show was picked as it was a combination of the company’s name and the word “Olympic”. The show will take on the concept of an athletic competition, similar to the existing “Idol Star Athletics Championships”.
The first episode will see the participation of idol group Lovelyz and TV personality Oh Hyun Min, along with INFINITE’s Sungyeol as the main host. They will be appearing on the show to support their fellow labelmates. However, it is unsure if they will be appearing for the rest of the episodes.
Sungyeol also spoke fondly of his juniors, saying, “I’m happy I can help them out a bit. I myself received a lot of support from my seniors while debuting through a reality program. I hope I’ll be able to give them all the help I had received from my seniors.”
The rookie group will be made up of 11 members, namely Y, Tag, Daeyeol (Sungyeol’s brother), Jaehyun, Jaeseok, Jibeom, Joochan, Donghyun, Jangjun, Bomin, and Seungmin. The group doesn’t have a debut date yet.
The first episode will air today (Tuesday, 30th May) at 7pm KST (6pm Malaysian time) and subsequent episodes will be broadcasted every Tuesday at the same time. Fans will be able to watch the show via V Live app and Mnet’s channel.
