On March 17, a broadcast insider talked with news outlet My Daily and said, “Heechul and Hani have been confirmed as new MCs for ‘Weekly Idol.’ Alongside MC Defconn, there will be three MCs.”
Last November, Jung Hyung Don halted all activities including his role as an MC for “Weekly Idol.” Since last December the show has featured different special MCs. Heechul previously appeared as a special MC for two episodes.
The source made it clear that Jung Hyung Don has not officially left the show and said, “Heechul and Hani are going to be MCs until Jung Hyung Don returns.”
Heechul and Hani’s first episode as official MCs is scheduled to air in early April.
