Mnet releases a teaser for new show ‘I-LAND’ and (G)I-DLE’s fans aren’t happy about it

The reality survival show’s name is similar to (G)I-DLE’s world tour.

Mnet releases a teaser for an upcoming reality survival show titled I-LAND and Neverlands (fans of (G)I-DLE aren’t happy about the title of the said show.

I-LAND is Big Hit Entertainment and CJ ENM‘s first venture project under BELIFT LAB Incorporations. The survival show will feature contestants competing to become the next generation of K-Pop idols.

This reality survival show sparked disappointments to Neverlands because the title of the show is similar to (G)I-DLE’s ‘I-LAND’ tour. The term ‘I-LAND’ is a combination of the letter ‘I’ from the group’s name and ‘LAND’ which represents the Neverlands. The said tour was originally scheduled to begin on April 4 in Bangkok and then postponed due to the current situation.
