Producer Reveals Why A Pink Was Chosen for Season Three of “Showtime”


PD Yoon Mi Jin, the main producer of the popular reality show “Showtime,” has revealed the reason for casting A Pink for the new season.

At a press conference of the show held on August 6, the producer began by talking about their goals for the future: “We are hoping to see ‘Showtime’ grow as a brand, and not as a reality show that is only attached to the artists.”

She continued to talk about the show’s journey so far: “Not even a year has passed [since we started], and we are already working with our third artist. We left an impression with our start, and have now secured a stable position. Having popular idols appear on the show has helped us to build a favorable image for ‘Showtime.’ To secure our growth during season three, we decided to undergo some changes, and thus we chose a girl group instead of a boy group,” and promised, “It will be a great experience to everyone that has been waiting for a girl group.”

As many have been wondering why the show decided to cast A Pink, the producer addressed such questions by saying, “They are the hottest girl group of 2014, that is why,” and continued to explain, “A Pink and the members as individuals are pursuing activities through both variety and dramas, so we thought people might be curious about them. As their curve of success has been soaring since their debut, we chose them as the main characters of our third season.”

The first season of “Showtime” starred male group EXO, and the second season focused on following the daily life of BEAST.

A Pink’s Showtime” will premiere on August 7 at 6PM (KST).

Who else would you like to see on Showtime? I would want Crayon Pop, 4minute, or Winner after they debut.

That would be awesome if they did it. Just give them a camera and let's go.

Girl's Day!! Especially if we're going with popular girl groups. Crayon Pop would be great too.

I was watching old episodes of X-Man and just dying of laughter the whole time. I originally just went back to watch dbsk episodes but i ended up watching a bunch of others ones too

BtoB because they are crackheads
juhli 6th-Aug-2014 05:47 pm (UTC)

juhli 6th-Aug-2014 05:48 pm (UTC)
f.t.island please because it seems like they have drifted apart a bit ^^
imienazwisko 6th-Aug-2014 06:10 pm (UTC)
they are super funny, i never watched any "full" variety from them but i remember seeing clips like that english lesson they had in jappan ("my father! he's sick!") or hidden camera during one promo, it was all variety gold.

I want a new vixx variety show, it's been more than a year since vixx files and starlights still havent received our consolation for the end of vixx tv.

They're not really far from exo when it comes to crazy variety personalities though. No body gags and stuff like that but they TALK A LOT. Like over each other carrying multiply conversations cant hear what others are saying kind.
I enjoyed plan v diary where they took trips and stuff. They tend to do well when it's just 6 of them, no sunbaes no hosts so maybe showtime will be a good fit.

I mean if we can get moments like

or like


I think we got gold.

And of course, the moment that made history:

This show is BORING...so I vote for a new show and format for the next idol
hyemint 6th-Aug-2014 08:44 pm (UTC)
lbr it was boring bc exo
toshi830 6th-Aug-2014 08:32 pm (UTC)
idk wtf showtime is about so anyone cause I probably won't watch it anyways
princetabi 6th-Aug-2014 09:59 pm (UTC)
its a very vanilla and scripted show where they do challenges and talk about themselves. The only reason anyone would watch it is if their faves are on there. I'm just happy apink is doing another show.
lysblack 6th-Aug-2014 08:46 pm (UTC)
miss a, because they desperately need a variety show and i am forever pressed and bitter over the fact that in less than a year after their debut GOT7 received more than twice the chances and promotions than miss a had in four years.
princetabi 6th-Aug-2014 10:01 pm (UTC)
that's an issue for most girl groups -__- Like got7 is hilarious but how dare they deprive me of miss a goddesses
hyemint 6th-Aug-2014 08:47 pm (UTC)
i really wanted that nine muses showtime rumor that came out of nowhere to be true. it would've done so much for them while the last lineup was still intact... any show for them would be good :'c

I never got into their music but they are all so beautiful and they seem talented and sweet so I think a reality show would be the thing to get me into them.

Sistar. I hink that is a good group of personalities, their oven radio made me want more (and Soyu was really killing it on there). And more Park Jimin from 15&. Now that she has gotten over her nerves, she is a lot more open to do funny things. Yerin I can honestly do without on variety (put her on something where she can sing, and that is fine), as you basically have to get her to warm up to the idea of anything, and you can't just rely on Jimin to be the interesting one in a show about both of them.
