I Can See Your Voice

The South Korean smash hits taking over Saturday-night primetime

Brash, brazen and bonkers, Korean formats such as ITV’s The Masked Singer and BBC One’s I Can See Your Voice (ICSYV) have swept into British homes in Saturday-night primetime, grabbing audiences and plaudits alike.

In slots previously occupied by long-running shows such as The X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing, these South Korean formats encapsulate the joy of the new and original.

Korea’s technicolour dream shows

Crazy and cool with a K” is a good moniker for the jaw-dropping South Korean entertainment formats delivering jaw-dropping audience figures around the world. In the UK, The Masked Singer, I Can See Your Voice and, most recently, The Masked Dancer have featured celebrities disguised as everything from a bee and an octopus to a sausage, good and bad singers from the great British public hiding in plain sight and dance routines from a llama, chicken and knickerbocker glory.

Offering a fresh take on the music game show genre, I Can See Your Voice will provide music, comedy and play-along fun for the whole family.

The aim of the game involves two players attempting to guess who can and can’t sing from a group of mystery singers before them, in order to win a cash prize.

Through a series of amusing lip sync challenges, the competitors must weed out those masquerading as music maestros and whittle down the group to the one they believe truly has the gift of song.
