Mnet‘s latest girl group audition program Girls Planet 999 : The Girls Saga have introduced their mentor lineup, featuring two K-Pop veterans.
Mnet’s new program Girls Planet 999 : The Girls Saga officially confirmed Girls’ Generation‘s Tiffany and Sunmi as the K-POP Masters for the program. As two of the members from Korea’s top second generation girl groups, they will be able to use their first-hand experience and know-how to foster the development of the young trainees who are eager to debut as idols.
One notable point that Sunmi mentioned is that she and Tiffany have very different styles when it comes to performing and music. However, they believe that the chemistry that can be formed between them will be able to overcome the difference in styles.
The dance masters will be choreographer Baek Gu Young, who has created the dances for BoA, TVXQ, SHINee‘s Taemin, and EXO‘s Kai. Alongside him will be Jang Joo Hee, who has created choreography for Sunmi, Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon, and IZ*ONE.
On the vocal side, vocal trainer Lim Han Byul, also known as ONESTAR, will be one of the Vocal Masters on the show. He has helped train EXO, NCT, and Weki Meki among many other idols. Joining him will be Cho Ah Young, who has worked with TWICE and AB6IX.
Girls Planet 999 will begin airing in August.
