Lee Hwi-jae, Taecyeon to host new TV show
Comedian Lee Hwi-jae and Taecyeon of the K-pop boy group 2PM will team up to host a new entertainment program “Mom” (working title).
One of the three major broadcasters, SBS, announced Tuesday that the two celebrities will be the MCs of the program that is scheduled to start airing in May.
The entertainment program features moms searching for potential husbands for their young daughters.
“We expect that two different stars, one who is married and the other who is not, can offer different perspectives,” SBS said. “The two have been part of many entertainment shows as well.”
Lee, a father of twin sons, has long been a regular on the show “The Return of Superman,” showing his life as a father. Lee is also an award-winning MC.
Taecyeon also has experience as a guest on entertainment programs. His most recent appearances were on “Three Meals a Day” and “My Little Television.”
