The show will be available to watch on Rakuten Viki beginning on Friday (June 26). You can watch for free (with advertisements) or without advertisements with tiered subscriptions of Standard for $4.99 a month, and Plus Pass for $9.99.
The series is named after the building, I-Land, where contestants will have the opportunity to be mentored in the hopes of achieving their dreams to be the next K-Pop sensation. The building was designed and built to develop and produce the ultimate idol group.
Here’s more information: “After three years of architectural planning and construction, this colossal structure is a groundbreaking system for the future superstars to live in, train, and perform. Talented performers from around the world have been invited to I-Land where they must undertake and rise to a variety of challenges. Who will be the ones to survive the tests of I-Land and finally stand on the global stage?”
Over 20 young male K-pop trainees, born between 1997 and 2008, will compete in the show. They were selected from auditions held around the world in 2019.
The new boyband’s executive producer will be Bang Si Hyuk, the co-CEO of Big Hit Entertainment, and he will be joined by Zico of Block B and solo star Rain. Namgoong Min is the MC of the show.
