Another male idol group reality show called “All For One” (以團之名) is airing on January 18. The format of the show is similar to “Idol Producer 2” (青春有你) where one hundred contestants compete to become a part of the next boyband. The show will be airing on the Chinese streaming platform, Youku.
There was some controversy as the show was set to have a press conference on December 7th, but was suddenly canceled. There were even rumors the show would not get to air. However, on January 11th, the show officially announced the mentors for the show. Selina Jen (任家萱) of Taiwanese girl group, S.H.E, serves as the show’s program director. Chinese singer, Tia Ray (袁婭維), will be the music mentor. Fei (王霏霏) of disbanded K-Pop girl group, miss A, serves as the dance mentor, while Jawn Ha (何展成) of the L.A. based dance crew, Kinjaz, serves as the dance and rap mentor.
Youku shared a trailer for the first episode and actor, Huang Xiaoming (黃曉明) serves as the guest judge.
You can actually spot a familiar face from the trailer: UNIQ’s leader, Zhou Yixuan (周艺轩). This is a bit awkward as Zhou Yixuan’s group member, Li Wenhan is on iQiyi’s “Idol Producer 2.” Watch Zhou Yixuan with his group on “All For One.”
