Native title: 青春有你3
Original network: iQiyi
No. of episodes: 24
Mentor line-up, we have Blackpink’s Lisa as the Dance mentor, Li Rong Hao as the Vocal mentor, Wil Pan Wei Bo as the Rap mentor. Chris Lee is the PD (producer) for the third season. And their senior Esther Yu from THE9 as the Youth Tutor.
New surprises every season. The first round of meeting is not with the mentors but the trainees have to face the harsh reality of the media. 20-30 representatives from the media is their first challenge.
The ritual is back to hype up the hall with the performance by each of the mentors and their youth tutor. Apart from Blackpink’s Lisa who recorded the performance, the rest of them performed live in Episode 1.
This season, there are only 3 classes, A, B, and C. With Grade C being ‘just pass’, they have open another grade N which defines as Newbies. The performance by different trainees are showcase from later half of episode 1 to half of episode 3 which will be happening soon.
Here are the trainees that have caught my eyes right from the beginning.
