Take 1 (Korean테이크 원) is a South Korean music docuseries reality show produced by Netflix starring Sumi Jo, Lena Park, Mamamoo, Jung Ji-hoon (Rain), AKMU, You Hee-yeol and Yim Jae-beom.



Take 1 is a heartfelt show which revolves around the step-by-step process of artists creating the most meaningful performance of their careers, that started from the question "If you could perform just one stage before you die?".[2][3]



In each episode, the show will feature a different artist from South Korea, with the goal of performing one song. Each act is given a countdown timer for when they are due to perform. In the time allocated, each act can choose where they would like to perform, and who they would like to perform with them such as dancers and other artists in one take.[4]
