Hyeri to host New Year television special


Hyeri of the girl group Girl’s Day will host the upcoming Idol Star Athletics Championship along with singer Jo Kwon, Leeteuk of Super Junior and professional emcee Jun Hyun-moo.

Entertainment industry insiders told OSEN, a local entertainment news agency, Sunday that Hyeri will host the opening ceremony and archery and athletics competitions.

For the seasonal TV show, which airs during the Lunar New Year and Chuseok holidays, hundreds of K-pop boy and girl group singers compete with each other in various sports from archery to ssireum, or traditional Korean wrestling.

Hyeri is scheduled to show up at Goyang Stadium in Gyeonggi today to do filming of the show.

This year, about 300 K-pop singers will reportedly take part in the competition.

Almost all K-pop singers from newbies to veteran singers compete with each other on the show, which began in 2010.
