Team B consists of 6 members and among them is the then 12-year-old boy rapper B.I who featured in MC Mong’s ‘Indian Boy’, and Koo Jun Hee, another ex-contestant of K-Pop Star.

Also, Big Bang members G-Dragon and Taeyang will show their support for their soon-to-be lablemates by producing their music and giving useful advice. A track from G-Dragon’s upcoming album, “Shake the World,” will be arranged to be the title song for the program.
