Are you religiously watching Yoo Yeon Seok’s variety show “WEKID” that is currently airing on MNet / TvN? If you haven’t watched it, we would like to recommend you to check it out because the children in this show are so ready to steal your heart or to make you shed some tears.
Yoo Yeon Seok and composer Yoo Il Sang join forces to form the Blue Team. In each episode, each child singer sings in front of a large audience that are separated into adult and child group. If the candidate won the votes from both adult and child groups, he/she will be able to choose the mentor of their liking. However, if the candidate got the vote only from either group in the audience, the mentors will decide whether they want lure them into their team or not.
Following the airing of the 3rd episode, 5 kids are on board Yoo Yeon Seok’s blue team. Let’s meet them one by one .
Kim Myeong Bin
Kwak Yi An
Hong Eui Hyun
Park Ye Eun
Unlike other singing competition, this show is not about eliminating candidates and searching for the best singer out there. It is more about a friendly competition in creating children’s songs together where children take part in a festival environment. According to the chief producer Kim Yong-beom during press conference, the first-place team receives a prize from the Education minister and a scholarship.
Producer Kim also said an interesting tidbit on the selection of Yoo Yeon Seok, Park Bo Young and Tiger JK as mentors. Quoted from an article by Koreaherald, MNet brought in the three celebrities because they show sincere interest in music and the children, both on and off camera. Looking at the photos shared by Lee Harang and Hong Eui Hyun, MNet’s claim is not too far off. Outside WEKID and off camera, Yoo Yeon Seok invited his team members to his musical, ‘Man Who Walks Through Doors’ and made time to take picture together. Check out their photos below:

As broadcaster, MNet joins the BlueTeam bandwagon by releasing many pictures of Blue Team to our delight. The pictures were taken from the upcoming choir battle. Yoo Yeon Seok was seen sitting among his students and hugged them as well. We don’t know yet the event behind the passionate shoulder gangsters hug, so make sure you catch episode 4 of WEKID.
Another tidbits from the preview of next episode, Yoo Yeon Seok and his team will go to some sort of a boot camp. They will be singing under the snow while walking together through the forest. What a lovely scene.. but as any other team in the world, they will face some challenges and adversaries. Yoo Yeon Seok is seen attending Choi Myeong Bin who is crying. Then he looks completely stress out during practice. What is actually happening? And will they do well in the choir battle?
