'Double Trouble': K-pop duet survival show lineup includes SF9, Kard, Sistar, Block B
The lineup includes members of 2AM, 2NE1, AOA, as well as 4th-gen groups like Weeekly
K-pop lovers have a new survival show to tune in to. Competition programs do immensely well as it allows viewers to see a new side of idols and popular trainees participating in the shows. We’ve had the likes of ‘Street Woman Fighter’ -- which included dance crews -- who have been backup dancers and choreographed iconic K-pop songs. We've had ‘Kingdom’ which was a survival show of already famous groups like Stray Kids, Ateez, and iKON and now we have ‘Double Trouble’ which is a unique music competition program that includes members from groups like SF9, Kard, Sistar, and Block B.
Watcha is an entertainment platform that has introduced its newest survival show for popular idols. We’ve had the likes of ‘Hit The Stage’ with GOT7’s Yugyeom as a winner and ‘Good Girl’ where one of the winning teams was Lee Youngji and Girls’ Generation’s Hyoyeon. We will also be seeing a reunion of sorts among some of the cast members as Kard’s Jiwoo and Sistar’s Hyolyn are now appearing on ‘Double Trouble’. Watcha’s latest competitive show ‘Double Trouble’ has roped in 10 legendary figures of the second and third-gen, as well as currently popular rookies.

‘Double Trouble’ idol lineup
The mission of ‘Double Trouble' requires the participants to create a duet stage with each other. The aim of the survival show is for idols to find a compatible partner to "make trouble" and collaborate with. 4D entertainers Kim Ji-seok and Jang Do-yeon are set to be the MCs of the show. We also have the idol lineup that will be participating in the show. With it being a singing competition, the participants are all either the main vocalists of their groups or powerful singers.
2AM is a ballad group where each and every member is a talented singer. And with Changmin winning another singing competition, ‘Immortal Songs’, expectations are high for Seulong.
Before BEAST was rebranded as Highlight, the leading second-gen group included Jang Hyunseung as a vocalist. He was also part of the infamous duo Trouble Maker along with Hyuna.
Block B's Taeil
Taeil is known for being a trainee for a short period of time, but he had vocal training for 6 years and is the main vocalist of the hip hop group.
As the main vocalist of his group, he is known for his high notes and had one of the highlights when SF9 performed Taemin’s ‘Move’ on the survival show ‘Kingdom'.
WEi's Kim Donghan
Netizens were surprised that the main dancer of WEi is on a singing program but what fans know is that he's a talented singer and was also a panelist on MBC’s trot show.
Former 2NE1 member Minzy has been on several singing shows like ‘King of Mask Singer’. Still known as a popular vocalist even overseas, she is in fact a mentor on the survival show ‘Wild Idol’ along with Taeil.
Hyolyn was the leader of Sistar, known for their viral summer hits. Her mini-reunion with Dasom for a charity single had fans missing the group, but she is back once more on ‘Double Trouble’ with her signature raspy voice.
Former AOA member was not only the main vocalist of the group but also the guitarist. Fans are excited to see her make a comeback.
With J.seph being in the military, the co-ed group is currently on a hiatus of sorts. But the members are busy with their solo gigs. Having surprised everyone with her singing on ‘Good Girl’, fans are looking forward to seeing rapper Jiwoo on ‘Double Trouble’.
Rookie girl group Weeekly are taking K-pop by storm with their viral hits like ‘After School’. Monday is not only the main vocalist but also the vocal leader of the group which has led to high expectations from her.
The show will air on December 24 at 6 pm KST (4 am ET) on Watcha’s platform. Watch the trailer below.
