JTBC’s “Peak Time” ended the battle for cooperation and the first round of voting!
“Peak Time” is a new idol survival show where teams compete for the chance to become the next “world idol group”. Unlike other audition programs, its contestants consist entirely of male idols who have already debuted, whether they are currently active or part of a disbanded group, and compete “anonymously” under temporary group names that correspond to different times of the day .
In addition to MC Lee Seung Gi, the survival show boasts an all-star panel of judges including Super Junior’s Kyuhyun, Girls’ Generation’s Tiffany, MAMAMOO’s Moonbyul, Highlight’s Jay Park, Highlight’s Lee Gikwang, and INFINITE’s Kim Sungkyu.
Last week, participants began a battle of cooperation by forming alliances of 4 teams before each alliance split into vocal, rap, and dance units. (Each vocal unit was limited to six members, and each rap unit was limited to five members, with no member limit for dance units.)
The four alliances per round were as follows:
A: Teams 2am (NTX), 5am (ATBO), 9am (BLITZERS), 6pm (BDC)
B: Teams 8:00 (DKB), 20:00 (MONT), 21:00 (24K), 23:00 (DGNA)
C: Teams 11am (VANNER), 1pm (BAE173), 3pm (BLK), 12pm (solo players)
D: Teams 1am (DIGNITY), 4am (BXB), 7am (MASC), 2pm (GHOST9)
Last week’s episode featured the rap unit battle and the first performance of the vocal unit battle (by Alliance C vocal unit), and the March 15 episode featured the rest of the unit performances.
Check out the performances of the other three vocal units below!
Vocal unit: “Time of Our Life” by DAY6

After all the judges’ points for each performance were tallied, the final rankings for the Vocal Battle were as follows:
1st Winner: Vocal Unit D (767 pts)
2. C vocal unit (719 points)
3. Vocal Unit B (709 points)

2. Dance Unit B (780 pts)
3. Dance Unit D (779 pts)
