EXO's Lay recently attended the press conference for the Chinese Survival Program titled "Idol Producer" on December 17 held at the Sheraton Hotel in Hebei, China.

"I don't feel pressured about taking the role of a representative producer. I think I will also be able to learn a lot from the survival process," EXO's Lay said, revealing his thoughts about being an MC for the program.

"I want to redefine the word 'trainee.' I hope to showcase the efforts of aspiring trainees before they debut. I want to share our experience. The final members will be chosen not by us, but the audience," he also emphasized.

"Trainees will need to work hard, have passion, and enjoy the process. These are the three most important virtues," he went on saying.

EXO's Lay also praised the production crew of the show and said that they are very hardworking, responsible and exceptional.

"Idol Producer" will be produced and broadcasted by the China's famous video streaming platform iQiyi. The program will be selecting nine members for debut by recruiting 100 trainees from the Chinese and even foreign entertainment companies. These nine final contestants will be selected and voted by the public.

GOT7's Jackson will also act as a rap mentor, Cosmic Girls' Cheng Xiao and PRISTIN's Kyulkyung will be the dance mentors.

"Idol Producer" will start on January 19, 2018.
