Survival audition program is one of the most interesting and fun TV shows to watch. After Superstar K, one of the very first audition programs, just like a Korean version of American Idol, Koreans have had auditions for everything from singers to celebrity chefs, and even designers and models. You probably remember Produce 101, had 101 competitors and have made a group called IOI with top 11 from the show.

The best 2017 Korean survival shows include The Unit: Idol Rebooting Project, Mix Nine, and Show Me the Money 6. You also can't forget about Produce 101 Season 2, which created the Kpop boy group Wanna One.
