Mnet’s “High School Rapper” is coming back next year.
On Wednesday, Mnet announced a new season “High School Rapper,” with an official logo and teaser video for the third rendition of the show. The program first drew attention because it looked for musical talent in youth and a format of stories that focused on the lives of teenagers. By showing a different side of rap, the show resounded not only with the peers of the contestants but with older generations too.
Additionally, viewers raved over the contestants’ talented performances on each show, with their released tracks sweeping music charts in Korea. Unsurprisingly then, many of the past season’s contestants wound up joining some of Korea’s most prominent hip-hop labels. The winner from “High School Rapper 2,” HAON, signed Jay Park’s H1GHR MUSIC label.
According to Mnet, they will start recruiting for the next season starting on December 11 and running to the end of the month.
