Why this time is so special? Because there is a collaboration with J-pop idol group AKB48. The name is also changed to Produce 48 from Produce 101. It is a large-scale project in which the public “produces” a girl group by Internet voting for members out of a pool of 96 trainees from South Korea and Japan.

The winning 12 contestants, with no nationality limits, will promote as a group for two and a half years. If the AKB members are selected, they still could maintain their own career at the same time. The program itself is primarily in Korean, with all members getting instant interpretation feeds but the contestants are required to learn Korean and Japanese basically.
Everyday viewers could log in the official website to vote for 12 contestants they like. They will release the ranking chart weekly till the final.
