Singer Sunmi is known for her impeccable skills as a judge on the ongoing cross-cultural survival show ‘Girls Planet 999’.

After making a debut in 2007 in the JYP Entertainment girl-group Wonder Girls, Sunmi soon rose to popularity, mostly because of her solo career and talent. Over the past few years, Sunmi has been working as a mentor and a judge on multiple reality shows. In 2020, Sunmi was the judge on the second-chance singing reality show, ‘Sing Again’. It was announced on October 21 that the show has been renewed for the second season where Sunmi will return as a judge with the rest of the judge’s panel. ‘Sing Again’ is a music competition for singers who are desperate for one more chance. The show aims to give unknown or forgotten singers a platform, to be rediscovered by the audience.

Judges for ‘Sing Again 2’

The twist on 'Sing Again' is that the contestants are called by their assigned numbers while only the winners get to reveal their names to the world. The performances as well as the stories behind singers' careers have moved viewers in the past. It is expected that the second season will also garner such attention.

‘Sing Again 2' will be hosted by Lee Seunggi and the show will have the dream team assume the panel of mentors for a second time. The lineup of mentors for the show includes Antenna’s representative producer Yoo Heeyeol, singer of the nation Lee Seonhee as well as hit-maker Kim Ina.

Sunmi has faced backlash in the past

Back in 2020, Sunmi took to her Instagram to talk about how fans of the show ‘Sing Again’ had sent her a lot of hate comments for the way she judged contestants on the variety show. Not only on ‘Sing Again’, but Sunmi was also receiving a lot of hate from fans of Mnet’s ‘Girls Planet 999’. Fans of Sunmi are hoping that she does not face the same type of backlash from her new venture as a judge on ‘Sing Again 2’.
