Posted on 2021-05-05

HBO Max, CJ ENM, and Endemol Shine Boomdog are developing a competition series to create the first K-pop trained Latin American boy band. K-Pop's biggest artists combine with Latin American stars to carefully select a group of promising talent to fly half-way around the world to train under K-pop’s secretive idol producing system. Throughout the music competition show, contestants are tested with challenges designed to not only evaluate their individual abilities, but to help them come together as a diverse, yet unified boy band, ready to debut on the world’s stage.

A group of young men from Latin America audition for an opportunity of a lifetime to fly to Korea to train under the K-pop star-making system to launch the first K-pop coached Latin American supergroup.

Harry HK Shin, Young Ju Ok, Jake Hong are key personnel for CJ ENM: Asia’s leading entertainment and lifestyle company creating the format and providing production services in South Korea.
