“It started off with that spark of imagination where people often think about legendary performances or iconic songs of their favorite artists. I just switched this to the artist’s point of view: What would they want to sing and perform if they could sing only one song before they die? Thus began this mad project where we create the stage for the artist for that one time and demolish it all after it’s over,” the producer said, as quoted by Korea JoongAng Daily.

Some of the confirmed musicians who appear on the show include Rain, Yoo Hee Yeol, AKMU, Yim Jae Beom, Lena Park, Sumi Jo, Park Jung Hyun, and MAMAMOO. They are tasked to sing one song they would perform if they got one chance to do so.

Kim Tae Hee’s husband, Rain, released countless hit songs throughout his career. But for Take 1, he chose to sing his 2008 hit song Rainism. Meanwhile, the K-pop sibling duo AKMU chose its 2021 song AKMU.

“My original plan was to perform on the tarmac. Professional skydivers will jump and land on the tarmac, then [the camera] shifts to 200 dancers standing there, all wearing the same sunglasses. Then, everything turns dark, like a blackout,” Lee Chan Hyuk said.

The AKMU’s other half also expressed his gratitude toward producer Kim Hak Min for giving them the chance to have their dream performance.

Take 1 dominates Netflix on October 14.
