Baek Ji-young set to co-host singing show
Singer Baek Ji-young will join Sung Si-kyung and comedian Yoo Se-yoon to host the new MBC music program “Duet Song Festival.”
MBC announced Thursday that Baek joined the other two celebrities, who hosted the show’s Lunar New Year holiday edition.
“Duet Song Festival” pairs up singers with members of the audience, who then face off against other two-member teams.
After the show earned a satisfactory viewership rating with its holiday edition, MBC decided to include it in the regular program schedule.
Balladeer Baek has much experience as a panelist for TV audition shows, including alongside Sung for “Superstar K.”
A slew of big-name stars like Solji of EXID, Min Kyung-hoon and many others will reportedly compete with each other on the upcoming show.
The first episode will air at 9:30 p.m. on April 8.
