Through this event, VIXX members who were still trainees were required to compete with other trainees. Through various missions in each episode, the ones who were superior would survive and those who were lacking would be eliminated.

Names such as Sung Si-kyung and Brian Joo (Fly to the Sky) played a part in the selection of VIXX members. Of the ten Jellyfish’s trainees who competed in MyDol, six members were selected which then debuted as K-Pop idols on May 24th, 2012, under the name VIXX.
