Produce 101 or maybe school idol?

No title

No title

My friend would had audition for this in a heartbeat.... too bad she turned 27 8 days ago lol

No title

I would have loved a show like this but with both 48 and 46 group members competing to be in a 21 member senbatsu....It would makes tons of money which is what AKS cares about...It would give fans a chance too see interaction with members we would normally see together...This could even be a yearly thing like the SSK uggg why cant i work for Aki-P lol

When South Korea first started Produce 101, people accused them for stealing AKB48's concept. Now that Aki-p actually makes a survival show with 101 participants I wonder how Korean will respond to this?
This show will be a great publicity for the less popular idols (if they did participate) and I would love to see girls compete with each other to realise their dream. I bet Aki-p will choose (at least one) shy participant with a cute idol smile and hardworking personality, and don't forget - short hair.
I believe the show will be amazing tho, do public have a right to vote?
