How was K-pop group UNIS formed?

UNIS is an eight-member girl group under F&F Entertainment. The group was formed via the SBS survival show Universe Ticket, and will be active for 2 years and 6 months. Episode 1 aired on November 18, 2023, and a new episode dropped each week leading up to episode 10, the finale.

With eight spots to secure in the future girl group, contestants were sorted into five levels for their performance score and fan votes–P, R, I, S, M–with "P" being the highest. 

Several familiar faces acted as judges and mentors for the 82 contestants:
