“I Can See Your Voice” is a program with the premise that there are a number of people in a group, some of whom can sing and some who can’t. Professional singers will then look only at hints and the outward appearance of these contestants to pick out the person who they believe to be the good singer. If someone who can’t sing well gets chosen, they will earn a prize of 10,000,000 KRW (~$10,000 USD). If the one who can sing gets chosen, that contestant will be given the opportunity to sing a duet with the singer and release it as a digital single.

Many viewers are already looking forward to the chemistry amongst the MCs, as they have previously shown their variety skills through other programs. The PD of the upcoming show shared, “All three MCs have a lot of enthusiasm, and I believe they will be able to smoothly lead a music show on which non-celebrities will appear.”

Initially, Mnet has bought the publication rights of the show format from Universal Music for three seasons, it would make sense for Mnet to air another season since they have already paid for it.

However, insiders from Mnet has expressed that “Voice Korea” will not be profitable for the channel. Different from other Mnet audition programs like “Super Star K,” the profits from the show’s digital singles go to the copyright holder Universal Music, not Mnet.

As the industry has been also on a decline in terms of profits from commercials, Mnet seems hesitant to continue with “Voice Korea.” “‘Voice Korea’ definitely has a different charm from ‘Super Star K,’” said a representative from Mnet. “But as the show is not very financially profitable for both Mnet and the winners, we are hesitant to continue with it.”

Producer Lee Sang Yoon of the show stated, “Last year when we first presented the show, the entire audition process seemed new and strange. So everyone, including the producers, coaches, participants, and viewers, thought the show was very fresh. This new and unfamiliarity of the show contributed much to the show’s popularity. However, we have made some changes to this process in the second season. We upgraded the audition process so that each and every competitor on the show will be judged and analyzed more carefully. We also gave more responsibilities and authorities to the coaches to pick competitors, allowing them to compete with each other a little bit more. Overall, the changes we’ve made will make the show more interesting.
