Global Agency has acquired the international rights to the Japanese reality show “REA(L)OVE” which was originally developed and produced by FANY Studio.

The Japanese reality show REA(L)OVE injects a gripping twist into the format, bringing together 20 contestants seeking romance but burdened with a deep secret, leaving viewers to discover whether love survives or dies when the truth emerges. Diverse characters such as fraudsters, adulterers and bankrupts reveal their secrets over three days, with host celebrities keeping their eyes on their journey and guiding viewers to empathize with contestants easily. The show reveals from close quarters the emotional rollercoaster experienced by the contestants as reality dawns over nine episodes. Ultimately, each must decide whether they can fall in love with their prospective partner once they find out the truth. For some love may blossom but some hearts are bound to be broken.

One standout feature involves the inclusion of two well-known celebrity hosts who will embark on the journey alongside the participants, overseeing their progress and motivating them in their quest for love. These hosts play a pivotal role in shaping the narrative, offering guidance to the participants and orchestrating one-on-one interactions.

Izzet PINTO, Founder & CEO of Global Agency, said: “We are delighted to be representing our brand new format “Real Love”. Japan is known for its unique and creative original formats. We are excited to partner with FANY Studio in presenting their original format to the worldwide market. Reality dating shows are very popular nowadays. We are proud to add this special format to our MIPTV line up”.

Mari Kawamura, a head of global business of FANY Studio, said:“It is our pleasure to work with Global Agency for the first time, and we strongly believe them to distribute our format to the world. While there are a lot of reality dating shows existing worldwide, our format, REA(L)OVE, offers a unique twist compared to others.  We hope global audiences will enjoy thrilling, exciting, and unexpected romance depicted in our format”.
