(IN-PROCESS) PRODUCE 48
Produce 48 (Hangul: 프로듀스 48) is an ongoing survival reality television show on Mnet. It is a large-scale project in which the public "produces" a girl group by voting for members out of a pool of 96 trainees from South Korea and Japan, as well as voting for the group's concept, debut single, and group name. It is a collaboration between the Mnet series Produce 101 and the J-Pop idol group AKB48. The winning 12 contestants, with no nationality caps, as voted only by Korean viewers, will promote as a group for two and a half years (30 months). The program itself is primarily in Korean, with all members getting instant interpretation feeds via earpieces.
