New Survival Show on Mnet for YG's New Boy Group iKON


YG to Unveil New Boy Group with ‘Mix & Match’

For the debut of B.I, Bobby, and the members of WIN Team B, YG Entertainment will be unveiling its new survival program, Mix & Match.

A year after super rookie Winner was born through Who is Next: WIN, YG Entertainment will unveil a new group through the survival program Mix & Match, which will be broadcasted through Mnet and Naver.

Mix & Match will consist of Team B′s B.I, Bobby, Kim Jin Hwan, Song Yoon Hyung, Goo Joon Hee, Kim Dong Hyuk, as well as three new trainees, who powered through audition competitions. The nine trainees will use their talents, charms, and uniqueness to showcase a fierce battle to become a member of YG′s new boy group.

Ahead of the broadcast, the press conference for Mix & Match take place on September 2 at the Conrad Hotel in Yeoudio. Yang Hyun Suk will personally attend the press conference to introduce the Team B debut project as well as the format of the Mix & Match battles.

A year ago after Team A was selected as the winners on WIN, Yang Hyun Suk stated the losing team will either disband or be reorganized.

Due to this, the battles, the missions, the critiques, and the birth of a new YG boy band as well as the debut of Team B are expected to grab the attention of fans in and outside of Korea.

The MCs of the Mix & Match press conference will be Big Bang′s Daesung and Yoo In Na, who previously hosted the final round of WIN.

As Mix & Match will showcase a comparison between the new trainees and Team B, including B.I and Bobby, who are already taking over music charts through Mnet′s Show Me the Money 3, the program is expected to create much talk once again.
