Idol School (Hangul: 아이돌 학교) was a 2017 reality girl group survival show on Mnet. It is a program that aims to form a 9-member girl group out of 41 female participants, training them in singing and dancing in the span of 11 weeks.

While branded as being similar to another Mnet survival program, Produce 48, the show differs from it in its participants, voting system, and number of winners that will form the final group, and also how they would treat the eliminated contestants. They may still be able to debut in the 'normal class' in the future, if they choose to take the offer to continue studying in a different class off-campus under less public scrutiny.

Group formed

The new group is called Fromis_9, meaning "From Idol School", but pronounced similar to "Promise" in Korean (프로미스), and the final line means the never-ending possibilities and the promising and prosperous road ahead after graduation that would last forever. The new group members will be trained and release albums through Pledis Entertainment, while their activities were managed by Stone Music Entertainment, as a joint venture with CJ E&M.

About the Concept

Although promoted as a survival program, Idol School, as its name suggests, is similar to an actual school wherein for a total of 11 weeks, the participants will receive lessons in not only singing and dancing, but also the history of K-pop and everything that comes with being an idol in South Korea, such as mental training and appearing in public. Producer Shin Yu-seon stated that they started recruiting participants in April 2017. Only female trainees aged 13 (Korean age) and above who are not trainees of any entertainment company are allowed to join. The producer also clarified that former trainees and even former singers were also given the chance to participate. This caused some controversy as some people felt that it goes against its concept of 'training ordinary students' but despite this, a number of female participants who have previously trained under entertainment companies have made the cut. Viewers will vote live every episode and the students' 'grades' will be completely determined by it. The decision to form a 9-person group was also decided by pre-show voting, where the choice was between 5-13. The cost of phone voting is 100 won, and all the money collected will be donated to CJ Donors Camp.
