After a successful first season, and smashing Superstar K4 in the ratings, the four judges on The Voice of Korea (known in America as The Voice) have agreed to return for a second season.
Shin Seung Hoon, Kangta, Baek Ji Young and Gil are all returning for Mnet’s second season of the talent competition after signing new contracts.
Although it’s unknown how much the coaches will be earning this season, sources say their paychecks have doubled.
Show director Lee Sang Yoon says: “The four coaches showed real chemistry and leadership together [in the previous series] and we believe they will continue to do so in the second season.
“[They] are already determined to bring forth a winner of the season from their own team and are already hard at work.”
The foursome shot promotional material for the new season today and filming starts this week, with the first episode premiering on February 22.
