Idol Army

Also known as “Idol World”, “Idol Show”, and “Every 1 Idol”

Concept:
Each season is hosted by a different idol group. The idols compete to be partnered with members of a visiting group (usually female) and complete a challenge for a great prize. Guests do not repeat within seasons, but there have been cases where a guest reappears in a different season.

What Makes it Stand Out:
I really like the idea of idols hosting other idols. There are always professional MCs with the idols, these change each season as well, but the show has a very hands-off feel (I’m sure this isn’t the case, but that is how it feels). The hosting idols are not treated like celebrities, and are often insulted or teased by the production crew, while the guests tend to be treated very well. I’ve only seen the seasons with Super Junior, 2PM, and M.BLAQ, so I don’t know about the mini-seasons with KARA and FT Island.
