CNBlue’s frontman Jung Yong Hwa is set to leave as an MC of SBS’ Inkigayo. A representative from SBS reveals that the singer-actor will bid farewell to his fans in his last episode as an MC on March 13. He decided to leave the show due to conflicts in his schedule now that he’s set to star opposite Park Shin Hye for the MBC drama Festival.
Meanwhile, the network has decided to replace him with not only one but two MCs, B2ST’s Lee Ki Kwang and IU. They’ll be sharing the hosting duties with 2AM’s Jo Kwon and f(x)’s Sulli. They’ve picked Ki Kwang for his hosting talent and they expect him and Jo Kwon to create an energetic vibe for the show.
The new MCs will have their first episode on March 20. Good luck to Yong Hwa on his upcoming drama and welcome to my favorite cutie Lee Ki Kwang, Jia You!
