KBS’ idol survival show “The Unit” is now available on the KBS World TV YouTube channel! For many fans all over the world, KBS World TV gives them the opportunity to catch the latest when they cannot watch on their normal TV stations, from dramas to variety shows.
“The Unit” is the next addition to KBS World TV. It is a survival show where already-debuted and former idols get a second chance to “reboot” themselves and become part of a national boy and girl group. What sets this particular survival show apart from others that have been aired in the past is that all the participants have already made their debut in the music industry but unfortunately have not seen huge success with their group (disbanded or not) compared to their peers and seniors.
There has been quite the buzz surrounding the popular idols that have come to join the survival show, but the biggest hot topic is the mentors and veteran artists who have come to help these artists come back to the stage once again. The six main mentors for “The Unit” are Rain, HyunA, San E, Taemin of SHINee, Jo Hyunah of Urban Zakapa and Hwang Chi Yeol.
“The Unit” is the last and desperate attempt for these idols to be on stage once more, putting everything they have on the line to prove they belong on the stage.
The show has been airing since November in Korea, but with the idol reboot show available with English subtitles, you can start from the beginning! The KBS World TV YouTube channel currently has the first two episodes available! Check it out. You may just see a few familiar faces among the participants!
