'ChoCo in Hollywood' is ChoCo's first reality project, showcasing its global debut. It introduces a new K-Pop incubation system to viewers worldwide, capturing the sincere human touch and musical growth of the talented ChoCo artists.
In the first episode of 'ChoCo in Hollywood', a reality show that will be released for the first time on M2, a digital channel affiliated with CJ E&M music broadcasting Mnet, at 7:00 p.m. on May 12, the ChoCo artists who have triggered curiosity will be revealed for the first time.
The choco artists appearing in 'ChoCo in Hollywood' are Jake (real name Yeom Yechan), TJ (real name Taejo Kim), Anpan (real name Anyapan Puwasetthawat), Sean (real name Bo Missionyul), and with an average age of less than 15 years old.
The reality show will show the members' recent appearances as well as the process of rapid growth from trainees to artists through ChoCo's unique incubating system for four years from the moment they joined ChoCo as chick trainees in 2019.
It is rumoured that the ChoCo artists, who have all four elements of so-called super rookies (ability, charm, visuals, and teamwork), showed off their solid skills and sparkling senses that were not befitting their young age from their trainee days, drawing praise from company officials and producers.
Joong-Hoon Cho (PD), the head of ChoCo Entertainment and the general producer of ChoCo, said, “In order to have global competitiveness, you must be able to create with your own creativity. By adding a self-directed education method to training, we are drawing out a figure that can work hard on its own,” revealing ChoCo’s unique nurturing philosophy in a recent interview.
ChoCo, who aims to be a 'K-POP 5.0 Articon' that sings about the dreams, lives, worries, and identities of the alpha generation, performing in various forms without boundaries between solo and group, is preparing for the first airing of the reality show 'ChoCo in Hollywood'. We plan to leave a strong impression on viewers around the world''.
The first episode of 'ChoCo in Hollywood', a Korean version of ChoCo's reality show, produced by Sol Nine Media, which is conducting an Asian audition using the directing skills of 'Mnet Asia Music Awards (MAMA)' and 'Produce 101', will be held on the 12th at 7 p.m. It will be released for the first time on M2, a digital channel affiliated with CJ E&M Music broadcasting on Mnet.
