Dal Shabet’s Viki will tell the weather
This is the first time that a K-pop singer has made the transition to weathercaster. JTBC said that Viki, whose real name is Kang Eun-hye, will set its program apart from competitors.
“Hi everyone. I will be a main weathercaster on JTBC beginning in April. You’ll be sure to watch our channel at 9 p.m., right?” Viki made the announcement on her Me2Day page.
The 24-year-old decided to leave her girl group last year to focus on a solo debut. Her contract with Happy Face Entertainment recently ended and so Viki was reportedly considering a variety of careers in the entertainment and media industries, according to local media outlet eNews. Her last performance was at a celebratory event ahead of the Yeosu Expo last May.
