Former athletes to host new reality show


Former national football player Ahn Jung-hwan and former basketball player Seo Jang-hoon, both of whom are currently actively working as TV entertainers, will team up as hosts of a new SBS pilot reality program tentatively titled “Kkotnolipae.”

With the slogan of “program of the audience, by the audience, for the audience,” the upcoming travel show will invite viewers to actively participate in leading the show by voting on the celebrities’ fate through Naver’s live-streaming service, V.

Six TV personalities will be joining the show, and they are scheduled to travel for two nights and three days for each episode. The first recording will take place in Jeju on Monday.

As for the first episode, the audience will be able to vote on the fate of the six celebrities at 2 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Monday, and at 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Tuesday.

After retiring as a sports star in 2012, Ahn has been getting attention as an entertainer on numerous programs, including “Cook Representative” (2016) and “Dad Where Are You Going?” (2014-15).

Seo retired as a basketball player in 2013, and since then has joined a few variety shows, including “Animals” (2015) and “The Brave Teenagers” (2015).
