About

LOUD (라우드; also known as Boys be LOUD) is 2021 South Korean survival show aimed to create a worldwide boy group project under the collaboration of JYP Entertainment, P Nation, and SBS. The show is filmed in South Korea. The name of the show, LOUD, was inspired by Stephen Hopkins saying that ‘quiet people have the LOUDest minds’.



Unlike other survival shows, LOUD aims to recruit individuals who are talented not just in singing and dancing, but that also have charm and very unique skills in different fields.

In the show, Psy and JYP sit on a LOUD chair that they control to get closer to the contestants. The closer they move, the more they are interested about that participant. There are 3 levels forward. Only when they get closest to the stage (level 3), they can press the pass button. Contestants need to get a pass from both Psy and JYP to pass the first round. The producer that hits the pass button first, gets to recruit that contestant in his team.
