All Star Cast Join YOUKU’s “Shine! Super Brothers 2”

After Mango TV’s “Sisters Who Make Waves”, it spun the currently airing male version, “Call Me By Fire”, which has achieved similar success and YOUKU’s “Shine! Super Brothers” from last year. However, the latter earned more criticism for being too greasy than praise.

Rumors about the cast of the second season have been going around the last few weeks. On October 20, YOUKU had its upfronts conference on upcoming dramas and variety shows for 2022. They also dropped a trailer for “Shine! Super Brothers 2” (追光吧) and revealed the cast:

  • Hong Kong actor, Francis Ng (吳鎮宇)
  • Hong Kong singer and actor, Dicky Cheung (張衛健)
  • F4’s Vanness Wu (吳建豪)
  • Chinese singer, Chen Chusheng (陈楚生)
  • Kazakh singer, Dimash
  • 2PM’s Nichkhun
  • Chinese singer, Sha Baoliang (沙宝亮)
  • Chinese crosstalk artist, Shang Jiuxi (尚九熙)
  • Chinese singer, Wang Xi (王晰)
  • Taiwanese singer, Aska Yang (楊宗緯)
  • Chinese singer and actor, Zhou Xiaoou (周晓鸥)

Like the first season, 21 male celebrities of different ages and industries are gathered to train and perform in groups for a chance to be on stage. It’s similar to a survival show as there will be missions, voting, and eliminations. The Chinese name for season 2 is now追光吧, dropping the “哥哥” (older brother).

Host and dancer, Jin Xing, returns as the presenter with new members, Jin Chen, and (G)I-DLE’s Song Yuqi.
