IU is set to come back to SBS’ Sunday music program “Inkigayo” as a regular host. According to local news agencies on August 22, the singer will resume her MC duties on “Inkigayo” this coming weekend, which airs on August 26.
Along with IU, Lee Jong Suk will remain as MC, while Nicole and Hara stepped down on August 19 in anticipation of Kara’s comeback. According to “Inkigayo” PD Park Sung Min, “IU and Lee Jong Suk will form a two-MC system.”
IU resumes as a host on “Inkigayo” after a hiatus of three months. She last performed her MC duties on the May 27, 2012 episode.
Park Sung Min added, “It’s now two months since Lee Jong Suk became an ‘Inkigayo’ MC. I’m a little uncomfortable with these changes since he’s new, but I think IU will do well.”
