Today, August 26, Mnet held a press conference for their upcoming survival show “Queendom“.
The first episode of the show is set to air in just three days, on August 29 at 9 pm KST. The whole concept of the show revolves around an all-girl competition for popularity and dominance of the Korean music charts.
According to this Naver article, the show will be airing for ten weeks, it will include three preliminary competitive stages and one live comeback stage. All six competitors – Mamamoo, (G)I-DLE, Park Bom, AOA, Lovelyz and Oh My Girl – will release their comeback songs on October 24th at 11 pm KST.
Then whoever has the most digital sales points and votes from their comeback stage will be pronounced winner, or in this case “Queens“, on October 31. The winning group or idol will get their own solo comeback show on Mnet.
In light of the ongoing controversy with Mnet’s Produce 101 rigged voting system, Queendom’s producers stated that they will make sure nothing similar happens with “Queendom”.
