Veteran K-pop singer BoA will host the second season of Mnet’s competition show “Produce 101,” according to the cable network Thursday.

Ahn Joon-young, the show’s director said, “BoA is an artist who has both charisma and a warm heart.”

With her 17-year music career, BoA will act as a mentor, deliver tasks to participants and announce the results of each competition.
The 30-year-old singer said, “I’m very happy to join the second season of ‘Produce 101.’”

The first season of “Produce 101” was launched in 2016 and featured 101 female trainees from local music labels. Through fierce competition, the 11-member project girl group I.O.I was formed, though it has since disbanded. Actor Jang Keun-suk was the host for the first season.

The new season will air in the first half of this year, featuring 101 male idol star wannabes competing to be part of a project boy band. The show’s first recording is set to take place Sunday.
