In collaboration with MLD Entertainment and KAMP Korea, the search is on for the newest Global Pop Group!

Consisting of 62 participants from all over the Philippines, these aspiring male performers will compete for the top 7 finalists.

During its grand media launch at The Dolphy Theater, ABS-CBN Compoun in Quezon Citt last Nov. 9, "Dream Maker" will be hosted by Kim Chiu and Ryan Bang. Serving as two mentors are Angeline Quinto and Momoland's Choreographer Bae Wan-Hee.

Kim said that she's happy to be part of the project. She added how being part of a reality tv show helped her relate to the dream chasers.

"Siguro nakatulong din yun kasi part din kami ng reality show dati, pero hindi kanta at sayaw ang main point namin, pero part of it is that we also have a dream. A dream to be seen on TV, and nakikita namin yun sa mga sumali na dream chasers ngayon," Kim said.

Also present during the event were ABS-CBN Business Unit Heads Marcus Vinuya, Reily Santiago, and MLD Entertainment Chief Executive officer Lee Hyoungin, KAMP Korea CEO Tim Kim, and Director Eung Gu Lee.

According to Mr. Santiago, they did a good collaboration between MLD Entertainment and KAMP Korea when they started to create Dream Maker.

"We have a good relationship between MLD Entertainment and KAMP Korea back then, and so this is a project waiting to happen, and finally after the pandemic, we decided to push through and we are excited to present what Dream Maker is all about," Santiago shared.

As the CEO of KAMP Korea, Tim Kim shared his experience of training the 62 participants of the Dream Maker.

"It's been about a month now since they started the training, and all the boys have been training hard for the past month, obviously there's a long journey in front of them. What I like about the boys is that they treat each other like brothers," Kim shared.

Catch the "Dream Makers" on the Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online live, and A2Z on Nov. 19 and 20. (Carissa Alcantara)
