'Be the SMF': Air date of ‘Be Mbitious’ dance crew for 'Street Man Fighter' released
The wait is almost over as we finally have a date on when we will get the eight winners of the prequel show ‘Be Mbitious’. With several solo male dancers wanting to participate in the dance crew competition ‘Street Man Fighter’, Mnet created the prequel show to form a project crew of soloists. Out of the 40 participants, 21 made it to the finale in May. However, there had been no news on when we will get our eight winners that would form the Mbitious dance crew.
Following three missions that ended on June 4, Mnet went radio silent on the winners of ‘Be Mbitious’ which had fans waiting impatiently. Many believed that we would directly get the winners when ‘Street Man Fighter’ airs. However, on June 28, Mnet released a teaser for the special episode titled ‘Be the SMF’. In it, we got Kang Daniel back as the MC as he announced the winners in front of the 21 finalists. At first, most fans could guess who would be in the lineup as one of the criteria involved the most views and likes on the dancers’ YouTube videos for the last mission. However, there has been a twist.

‘Be the SMF’ air date and time
Noh Taehyun of the former group Hotshot was leading in the digital criteria. But Kang Daniel revealed in the ‘Be the SMF’ teaser that along with the YouTube score, the mentors will also be giving scores to the dancers based on their last mission. This can very well change the game as it could push participants who do not have a lot of views and likes to the top 8. In the teaser, we have the participants looking uneasy, while Pentagon’s Kino and Brother Bin end up crying. With Trendy Rock crying in the ‘Be Mbitious’ teaser only to be the last finalist, fans think that Brother Bin who says “thank you” could also be crying out of gratitude for being the eighth member of the crew.
‘Be the SMF’ will air on July 5 at 10:20 pm KST (9:20 am ET) on Mnet and TVING. In the same episode, along with the Mbitious crew winners, we also get the other seven male dance crews participating in ‘Street Man Fighter’. The ‘Street Woman Fighter’ participating crews are getting together to react and announce the male dance crews. We will also be getting another glimpse of all eight male dance crews at a concert before the show.
Mnet had first announced a reunion concert for all of the participating crews of ‘Street Woman Fighter’ in July. Well, in the same reunion concert, the eight male crews will be performing as guests and revealing their first mission for ‘Street Man Fighter’. The 2-day concert ‘Reunion: The Next Era’ will take place on July 9 and 10 at 6 pm KST (5 am ET) at Olympic Handball Gymnasium, Seoul. The July 10 concert will also be broadcast live on Mnet’s channel. ‘Street Man Fighter’ is set to air in August.
