The first season of Produce 101 picked 11 young women out of more than 100 to be members of I.O.I, and the second season of the Korean music competition show is all about the guys -- 101 of them.
A clip featuring the competitors performing the theme song for the second season of Produce 101 aired in Korea on Thursday (March 9). “Me, It’s Me (Pick Me)” is a sequel of sorts to the first season’s widely popular theme, “Pick Me.” Like the original, “Me, It’s Me (Pick Me)” is an uptempo electro-pop song. It was created by Ryan Jhun, who produced several songs for I.O.I.
The performance is the first time the new competitors have been introduced to the public, whose voting will affect the future of the young men. Throughout the second season of Produce 101, the male K-pop trainees will compete for the top spots of the show’s voter-influenced rankings and the most popular men will be granted spots in a temporary boy band that seeks to replicate I.O.I’s success.
