Yang Hyun Suk revealed the reason why he insists on doing survival programs.

During the press conference for new survival program Mix & Match on September 2 in Conrad Seoul Hotel, Yeouido-dong, Yang Hyun Suk stated, “One year ago, Team B regrettably lost the competition on WIN.”

Yang Hyun Suk continued, “I have said previously that the losing team will either disband or be reorganized and this survival program will reconstitute the members of Team B. The six members of Team B and three others will be competing against one another fiercely.”

The production team then asked Yang Hyun Suk, “Do you like survival programs?”

Yang Hyun Suk answered, “I guess you could think that. It’s not that I like survival programs, but this world is a competition in itself. I think it is a good program that allows one to better understand these members, who will be promoting in the competitive K-Pop market for the next 5-10 years.”

Mix & Match is a new survival battle program that YG Entertainment will be presenting a year since WIN: Who Is Next aired. It will feature the members of Team B, namely Team B′s B.I, Bobby, Kim Jin Hwan, Song Yoon Hyung, Goo Joon Hee, Kim Dong Hyuk, as well as tree new trainees, Jung Jin Hyung, Jung Chan Woo and Yang Hong Suk, who will compete on the show.

The nine trainees will be competing with different combinations of members in a total of three rounds of matches. Two members will be eliminated and the other seven will be debuting. Apart from the fixed members B.I, Bobby and Kim Jin Hwan, the other four members will be selected through the judges’ votes (30%) and the viewers’ votes (70%).

Mix & Match will air on September 11 through Mnet and Naver.
