The premise of Universe Ticket is expected to be similar to that of popular K-pop survival shows Produce 48 and Girls Planet 999

What distinguishes the show from others is that the contestants come from all over the world, not just South Korea and Japan.

Soompi also reported that the new girl group formed as a result of the show will only have a two-and-a-half-year contract.
