Chinese boy group production show 'Idol Evolutionism' under fire for blatantly plagiarizing 'Produce 101'
Another Chinese program is under fire for blatantly plagiarizing a Korean show.
This time, it's regarding the hit Mnet idol production program 'Produce 101'. Recently, a Chinese content platform released a teaser for their upcoming boy group production show titled 'Idol Evolutionism'.
'Idol Evolutionism' is a competition where a total of 111 trainees will compete to debut in a boy group. Sounds similar? It's no exaggeration to say the concept of the Chinese show is exactly same as 'Produce 101' season 2.
