About Produce 101 Season 2

Season 2 of Produce 101 will feature male trainees in 2017, but many agencies, including SM, YG and JYP have opted not to send trainees to participate in season 2

Concept

Produce 101 is the nation's first agency-collaboration unit girl group project, which brings together 101 trainees from different entertainment companies both inside and outside of South Korea, and 11 trainees will be selected to form a unit girl group. The unit group will perform four songs together for a year and release a debut album under the record label of CJ E&M but may later join a girl group that their agencies are planning. The members began living together on December 5, 2015. They took to the stage for the first time to face off in a group mission at the CJ E&M studio in Ilsan on December 27, 2015.
For the girls' training, several artists have been recruited for the show. Actor-singer Jang Keun-suk serves as a mentor, while Brown Eyed Girls' vocalist JeA, alongside vocal trainer Kim Sung-eun, soloist Kahi with choreographer Bae Yoon-jung, and rapper Cheetah are respectively in charge of vocal, dance, and rap training. In addition, trainer Ray Yang is in charge of the girls' fitness training.
