The global idol survival audition programme, PRODUCE series catches the world by storm with its upcoming season 4.

Lee remarked, “I totally feel for all the contestants, for I understand how to work hard and fight for your dreams. I would like to cheer for them through this show!”


The strong trainer line-up of PRODUCE X 101 also caught much attention from its global fan base. Veteran trainers from previous seasons, namely singers Lee Suk-hoon and Shin Yoo-mi, dancers Bae Yoon-jeong, Kwon Jae-seung and Choi Young-jun and rapper Cheetah reunite at the show, sharing their invaluable experience with all contestants. They have customised an intensive training programme in order to get the boys ready in the shortest period of time, to display their charisma and ability during the weekly stage performance evaluation, and hence lead to a worldwide debut.

With the fierce competition, the boys would have to show their best all the time.
