KBSs new audition program The Final 99 Match (tentative title) has come under fire for reportedly pressuring agencies into sending recruits on the show.
The Final 99 Match is an audition program aimed at giving a second chance to singers who have already debuted but failed to find success. Rain has been reported to be in talks to MC the show.
Recently rumors have spread that KBS will be banning agencies from participating in KBS shows like Music Bank if they do not send one or two recruits to the show. A source from The Final 99 Match said to OSEN, It is correct that we have met with management companies with the aim of recruiting people, but it is not true that we are restricting appearances on KBS if they decline.
