IU to appear on "Immortal Song 2"

KBS was coming up with a new singing variety show with an all idol cast titled “Immortal Song 2.” Although a tentative line-up was released earlier, producers have recently confirmed a final six-member line-up.

On May 4th, PD Kwon Jae Young tweeted, “Changmin, Hyorin, Yoseob, Min, Yesung, and IU have all come together. If they compete with a song by Shim Soo Bong… I think it’d be fun. Have fun kids, don’t be too nervous.”

A representative from KBS confirmed through Newsen, “SHINee’s Jonghyun will not be able to join the program due to conflicting schedules. We are currently in discussion with 2PM’s Junsu to be added in later.”

The first recording will be held on May 16th. The pilot episode is currently scheduled for June.

Anyway, this is not to be confused with "I am a singer". They are totally different programs! =)

It is not a survival program and so there will be no eliminated members. It is a ‘nice’ variety show that doesn’t require such a difficult processes.

The show will have a total of three rules:

First, they will not be able to show off their other talents. Although the purpose of the program is to allow idol singers to sing joyfully, it is because this program is not for the sole purpose of ‘fun’. The priority is to shed light on vocal talents that have been hidden behind mere the glitz and glamor of the stage.

Second, they will not be able to imitate their senior-singers. While they will choose a senior singer and will choose one of their songs to sing in their own color and style, producers believe it will be too easy for viewers to criticize them if they imitate the style of the original singers.

Third, the idol singers who are participating cannot be distressed. Though having a competitive mindset is bound to happen, they cannot let it show or affect their performance on the show.
