Guysss, iQiyi's popular elimination reality show, Youth With You, is back with Season 3, woohoo!
If you're unfamiliar with the show, Youth With You is an idol reality show where more than a hundred trainees in China compete with each other in order to debut as a boy or girl group.
Based in China, the show first started off with the name Idol Producer, before revamping to Youth With You. And over the years, the show has grown in popularity, not just in China but internationally as well. Since then, two boy groups and one girl group have debuted through the show, namely NINEPERCENT, UNINE, and THE9.
With the second season of the show having ended less than a year ago, Youth With You Season 3 is back stronger than ever with new mentors, in addition to mentors from previous seasons
Among the new mentors are youth producer Chris Lee and rap mentor Will Pan. Meanwhile, familiar faces like vocal mentor Li Rong Hao (from Idol Producer and Youth With You Season 1) and dance mentor Lisa from BLACKPINK (from Youth With You Season 2) are back. Together, this team of mentors will coach over a hundred male trainees.
In fact, Esther Yu, one of the members from THE9 who debuted last year, is returning as the youth tutor for the trainees as well! If you're a big fan of these mentors, you'll love seeing them share their experience and skills with the trainees.
Best of all, the show which airs every Thursday and Saturday at 8pm, is free to watch on iQiyi! And fret not as there are English and Malay subtitles as well.
And here's the part many Malaysian fans are most excited about... Youth With You Season 3 features a Malaysian trainee, Jun Liu, who hails from Negeri Sembilan. :O
What's cool is that Jun Liu, who has a remarkable talent for dancing, recently became the first Southeast Asian in season 3 to rank seventh place in the first round of ranking positions, yasssss! With this, many viewers are eagerly waiting to witness his performance during the first ranking stage, slated to air this week.
Previously, Jun Liu had been choreographing and showcasing his dance skills on various platforms, including the popular YouTube dance channel, 1MILLION Dance Studio, where he became the first Chinese and youngest tutor. Other than that, he has also choreographed dances for notable artistes and boy groups including GOT7 and Jackson Yee.
And if you have been streaming one of iQiyi's recent and popular variety shows, FOURTRY S2, did you notice Jun Liu's brief cameo appearance?
