After months of grueling challenges, ABS-CBN and MLD Entertainment‘s survival reality show “Dream Maker” has named Jeromy Batac, Marcus Cabais, Kyler Chua, Vinci Malizon, Reyster Yton, Kim Huat Ng, and Winston Pineda as the members of the new “global pop group” Hori7on.
Hosted by Kim Chiu, “Dream Maker” is a Filipino-South Korean boy group reality competition that follows the same format as the K-Pop franchise “Produce 101.”
In a media conference on Tuesday, Feb. 14, MLD Entertainment CEO Lee Hyungjin said the seven-member act will debut in South Korea in June.
“We have plans for Hori7on to stay in the Philippines until late March to do some promotional activities. Our preparation right now is for them to debut in South Korea,” he said.
According to Hyungjin, Hori7on’s first album will be released in June. The company will also mount an online YouTube series for fans to have a glimpse of the band’s dance rehearsals, song recordings, and photoshoots.
Hori7on will be managed by MLD Entertainment, the same agency behind K-Pop acts Momoland, Lapillus, and TFN.
