However, netizens have given a negative reaction with the new format of the show.
They accuse KBS to have copied the MBC show ‘My Little TV’ as the first season of the ‘A Style For You’ which was aired last April was very different to the new version.
The netizens have also pointed out that many of KBS shows are similar to MBC shows such as KBS’ ‘Superman is back’ to MBC’s ‘Dad! Where are we going?’ and KBS’ ‘Immortal Song’ to MBC’s ‘I Am a Singer’.
