Kim Gura Announced as MC of Upcoming “Star Golden Bell” Special

Kim Gura

According to industry sources, Kim Gu Ra is slated to host a special Lunar New Year episode of “Star Golden Bell.”

Based originally on the KBS1 kids game show, “The Golden Bell Challenge,” “Star Golden Bell” is a variety show in which stars compete against one another in quiz-style games to win prizes. The planned Lunar New Year special will be the first time the show will be aired since it was cancelled in 2010.

Kim Gu Ra, who featured as a contestant in the original show, is expected to appear as the show’s MC this time around. Known for his blunt manner of speech on shows like MBC’s “Radio Star” and JTBC’s “War of Words,” it will be interesting to see what kind of comments he makes during the broadcast, which is scheduled to air on KBS2 during the the Lunar New Year holiday.
