YG's version of 'Produce 101' to air on MBC, will be working with already-debuted idols

YG Entertainment's version of 'Produce 101' will be airing on MBC.

Yang Hyun Suk will be working with 'Produce 101's 1st season's PD Han Dong Chul (he's also worked on 'Unpretty Rapstar' and 'Show Me the Money'). However, the show will be different from 'Produce 101' as it will center around idols who have already debuted. In this way, it's closer to KBS' upcoming 'The Final 99 Match'. The YG Entertainment version was in talks to air in SBS, but they have decided ultimately on MBC.
