The second season of "Miss Trot," a trot singing competition show by TV Chosun, is all ready to air, the cable channel said Wednesday.
 
The program, which brought trot singer Song Ga-in out of obscurity and into prominence as a young diva last year during its first season, will begin Dec. 17.
 
With its simple two-beat rhythm and no-nonsense lyrics, Korea's nearly century-old trot genre has long been considered music for the old. But the long dismissed trot music has been enjoying a renaissance across generations recently and stars have been born belting out the ditties.
 
TV Chosun also has a "Mr. Trot" for male trot singers.
 
According to the TV channel, about 20,000 competitors signed up to compete in the second season of "Miss Trot," the most ever.
