With great support from the two big companies that are BTS’s management companies – HYBE and Mnet, but I-LAND’s presence at the Emmy Award nomination seems to dissatisfy netizens.
I-LAND is a survival show produced by Mnet and HYBE. After 12 episodes, the show found 7 talented faces in the rookie lineup ENHYPEN, officially joining the entertainment industry from the second half of 2020.
Massively promoted on the mass media, taking advantage of HYBE’s famous, but I-LAND was disappointing because the program’s content did not create a highlight, just familiar competition motif and predictable results.
Notably, despite being rated flop at home, I-LAND was nominated in the entertainment category nomination of the Emmy Awards 2021. This information has surprised many viewers. What makes this program appear in the nomination of a world-famous award with many other excellent candidates?
Recently, the producer Mnet announced that this survival show will return with a second season, in order to find a new girl group to conquer the global music market.
With the above factors, netizens are concerned about I-LAND’s ability to compete at this year’s prestigious global awards, against extremely heavyweights and heavily invested competitors.
