As per tradition, YG Entertainment and JYP Entertainment trainees always go head to head.

This year, ‘WIN’s Team A and Team B will be battling trainees from JYP Entertainment as evidenced on the preview for the next episode, just as Se7en and Rain, and Big Bang along with 2PM did in the past. The two producers Yang Hyun Suk and J.Y. Park are incredibly close friends, but they still didn’t back up in their battle.
