The Unit (더 유닛; stylized as THE UNI+) is a 2017 idol rebooting show that aired on KBS 2TV. The show intended to give another chance for idols who have already debuted but failed to gain the spotlight. The project created two unit groups: one male and one female, with 9 members each.
Open auditions started on September 29, with approximately 200 idols trying out for the show. 126 (63 male and 63 female) succeeded in moving on to the next round. They were then further divided into 14 teams of 9 members each (7 male and 7 female) for their missions.
