Kang Daniel to host new Mnet dance competition
Singer Kang Daniel will host cable channel Mnet's upcoming all-female dance competition "Street Woman Fighter," the broadcaster announced on Monday.
According to Mnet, the new program will feature eight female dance crews and their battle to take the champion title.
It will be directed by producer Choi Jeong-nam, who has previously taken the helm of dance programs such as "Dancing9" (2013) and "Hit The Stage" (2016).
"Kang Daniel is a well-known dancer and an artist with a special affection for dancing," said Mnet.
"He started B-boying as a student and majored in modern dance, and even taught B-boying to people younger than him during his high school days," Mnet explained as the reason for choosing Kang as the host.
"I'm excited to see top-tier dancers perform on stage and honored to take on the host role," Kang said.
The first episode of "Street Woman Fighter" will air in mid-August.
