About

I-LAND (아이 랜드; 2020) is a South Korean survival reality show that followed the creation of the perfect kpop boy idol group by BELIFT LAB, a joint company of Big Hit Entertainment (label behind BTS) and CJ E&M Entertainment. The show takes place in the I-LAND, a state-of-the-art construction with 3 years in the making. Here the participants will live, train, and perform to become the perfect idol group.
