Interestingly, though PG One's name was not mentioned at the briefing on the show, Chen says a new policy has been introduced to vet competitors. And, as a result of the new guidelines, the competitors' social network accounts and previous music works will be checked.

"Also, when we talk to the contestants, we will try and figure out their world view ... to check whether they match the tone of our program."

Despite the restrictions, Chen feels a ban on bad language will not affect creativity.

Also, he says that as the online space is also a mainstream media channel now, there needs to be more social responsibility as there are many teens following the show.

Che Che, the director of the show, says that the upcoming season will "rectify reputation for Chinese rap".

In last year's program, a genre dubbed as "drama-like reality" was introduced, in which multiple storylines were designed within the talent show to appeal to a wider audience.
