Global idol project Mnet ‘Produce 101’ will be returning as the fourth season of the series in the first half of next year. The series is titled ‘Produce X 101.’
The teaser video of “Produce X 101” was released on the 14th. Unlike the current logo of Produce 101, the appearance of the “X” alphabet increases expectations. As it is the fourth series of Produce101 – a survival show that has been established as a project to foster Korea’s leading idol groups – the teaser video alone is drawing keen attention.
Mnet is going to start recruiting applicants with a goal of broadcasting in the first half of 2019. All male trainees who have been trained at an agency, as well as male individual trainees who seek their dreams on their own, as long as you were born before March 2005 then you can apply regardless of nationality.
Especially, the number of individual trainees has increased significantly compared to the previous series. To make it easy for talented and enthusiastic individuals to support and participate, Mnet opened an open recruitment window for individual trainees only. Individual trainees who wish to apply can send their photos and profile, self-introduction and video clips of their dancing, singing and rap skills by mid-January, to the official e-mail for individual trainees. After receiving applications, final individual trainees who will join the “Produce X 101” will be confirmed.
The world’s most notable global idol selection project, “Produce X 101,” will be broadcast on Mnet in the first half of 2019.
