iQiyi International has secured streaming rights worldwide (China, Japan, and Korea excluded) for Girls Planet 999. This girl group reality show produced by CJ ENM will be simulcast streaming with Korea at 19:20 SGT on August 6th. iQiyi will prepare simultaneous English subtitles for viewers around the globe.
99 contestants from China, Korea, and Japan recently attended M COUNTDOWN, a renowned music show in Korea, and performed the theme song “O.O.O(Over & Over & Over)” for the first time in public. They started on three round stages and ended on one huge stage. It represented girls from different countries gathered under one roof for their dreams. Amazed by the massive coordination and consistent dance movements, many viewers thought it was comparable to the Olympic opening show, and felt moved “when they held hands together at the end”.
In the first trailer, some contestants were quite aggressive, and their first contact was heated. Chinese participant Fu Yaning used rap lines to diss Korean participant Choi Yujin from girl group CLC. Fu also demonstrated her ambition and claimed she would “conquer all the other girls”. In this grand competition, contestants will aim for nine seats available for debut.
Girls Planet 999 is hosted by Yeo Jin-goo, with Lee Sun-mi and Tiffany Young as K-Pop Masters. Many current girl group members also participate in the competition, including Choi Yujin (CLC), Sim Seungeun (BVNDIT), Huh Jiwon (Cherry Bullet), May (Cherry Bullet), Kim Bora (Cherry Bullet), Chiayi (FANATICS), Kim Doah (FANATICS), and Lee Rayeon (FANATICS). Some contestants come from other reality shows, such as Youth With You 2 (Chen Xinwei, Fu Yaning, and Xu Ziyin), and Chuang 2020 (Cui Wenmeixiu, Shen Xiaoting, and Su Ruiqi).
Starting from August 6th, Girls Planet 999 will be simulcast streaming with Korea at 19:20 (SGT) every Friday worldwide (China, Japan, Korea excluded) on iQiyi International app and iQ.com. It offers simultaneous English subtitles, so viewers can cheer for their contestants in real time.
