About Contenders

Past Program

  Program Introduction

Contenders is a new program that will be broadcast in 2011 at Arirang TV.

We are looking for contenders who are ambitious to make a mark in major domestic and/or foreign corporations. This program will break the traditional method of hiring and focus more on the performance of the contenders rather than their resumes and qualifications.

A total of 8 contenders will compete during the course of 4 weeks through a process of elimination in a reality tv show style. The contenders will have to demonstrate proficiency not only in trivia and task management but also display character.

The goal of this program is to find a well-rounded individual through this 3-dimensional "interview" process.
You could be the next corporate rising star on Contenders!


Contenders : 8 people

Program Contents: One corporation will participate for 4 weeks
.1 week - Quiz Survival
.2 week - Team Survival
.3 week - Work Mission Survival
.4 week - The Last Survival

Final Winner : Permanent employment with the participating corporation

Broadcast Date : Beginning of March

* Note : We will be selecting contenders every 4 weeks for different corporations. (Sponsoring corporation will change every 4 weeks.)
