Seung Ri and Dae Sung of Big Bang has been chosen as the new MCs for MBC Music Core along with Solbi. This new line-up will start from 10th May onwards.
Since November 2007, Show! Music Core had been hosted by T.O.P (Big Bang), So Hee (Wonder Girls), Sun Ye (Wonder Girls) for the past six months. With the trio ending their emcee duties, there’s not a big change actually with T.O.P handing the baton to his fellow group mates in Dae Sung and Seung Ri.
Big Bang is not really pulling T.O.P out just because they are making a new album since Dae Sung and Seung Ri are subbed in??? As for Sun Ye and So Hee, they had to opt out because they wanted to focus their energies on making their new single. The Music Core producers wanted a format change anyway.
This new MC assignment will test Dae Sung and Seung Ri adaptibility and challenge their limits. Dae Sung cheerful smile and image on variety shows has won him lots of love from fans while Seung Ri’s involvement in the musical, “Rain Shower” has seen him being acknowledged in a different light.
In addition, Solbi’s 4-dimensional image and straightforward personality has seen her enjoy surging popularity outside of being a singer, gaining prominence as an actress and MC, opening a brand new popularity period for her.
A Music Core spokesperson said, “The clash in personalities and image will bring something fresh to viewers,” showing their anticipation.
Sun Ye and So Hee will still be hosting two more episodes of Music Core this afternoon (26th April) and next Saturday (3rd May) being their last. With Big Bang having their nationwide tour in Kwangju on 27th April, it’s not known if T.O.P will be hosting today. Wonder Girls in full force again?
