ITV Studios’ flagship show format "The Voice" has been licensed to CJ ENM in South Korea, who will also produce the show. The record-breaking show that continues to entertain and captivate millions across the globe for almost a decade now, will return on Mnet this Spring after a 7-year break. "The Voice" is very successful in Asia, with currently 13 local versions on air.
Says Ayesha Surty, SVP Licensing Asia, "Music has the amazing ability to bring people together. In these unusual times, a positive and heart-warming show like The Voice will continue to entertain people across every generation and help bring families together in front of their TVs at home. Mnet with its fantastic reach is the right partner for us to bring The Voice back to the people of South Korea again!’"
"It is refreshing to have a new season after 7 years. All of us are having harsh times this year and I strongly believe that the program would be a great chance to share comfort and deep impressions with everyone," adds Sang Jun Park, Producer CJ ENM.
