EXID’s Solji To Mentor Contestants On MBC’s New Idol Debut Survival Program
EXID’s Solji will be helping aspiring idols as a vocal trainer again!
She was announced as the newest director for MBC’s new survival show “Under 19.” The program will launch a global K-pop boy group in their teens, made up of the best contestants in three categories — rap, vocal, and performance. Celebrity mentors or “directors” for each of these categories will be guiding the contestants.
Solji will be joining Crush as a vocal director, while Dynamic Duo will be rap directors and Super Junior’s Eunhyuk will act as performance director. The EXID member was notably a vocal trainer before joining EXID, and has impressed audiences and fellow singers alike on various competitive singing variety shows.
A source from “Under 19” expressed, “Power vocalist Solji has joined ‘Under 19’ as a vocal director. We hope you look forward to seeing not only the experience she has as the main vocalist of an idol group, but also how she will teach these teen contestants as well as the chemistry she will have with Crush as vocal [directors].”
Solji also shared her thoughts, saying, “I am extremely pleased to be able to join ‘Under 19’ as a vocal director. I am happy at the thought of helping these friends who are just now starting their journey. I wish to work hard with the other directors to create a great group. There are many contestants with bright futures, so please look forward to it.”
“Under 19” will premiere the first week of November.
