UP10TION’s Sunyoul Joins New Competition Show “Voice Trot”
UP10TION member Sunyoul will be competing on MBN’s new show “Voice Trot”!
On May 22, a source from TOP Media told DongA, “Sunyoul is appearing on MBN’s new trot variety program ‘Voice Trot.'” They added, “Sunyoul is trying to show a new side of himself” and clarified, “He’s working hard to prepare for this while also preparing UP10TION’s new album.”
Trot is a genre of Korean pop music known for its distinctive singing style with vocal inflections, and it was particularly popular in the 1960s and 70s. While mainly listened to in recent years by the older generations, the genre has been experiencing a wide renaissance as of late thanks in part to the popularity of competition shows like “Miss Trot” and “Mister Trot.”
“Voice Trot” is a survival competition program that follows MBN’s previous trot program “Voice Queen.” This new show will feature a competitor lineup completely made up of celebrities (such as singers, actors, idols, YouTubers, politicians, comedians, and sports stars), rather than including amateur participants like many other shows.
Sunyoul debuted with UP10TION in 2015 and he’s a main vocalist in the group along with Hwanhee. UP10TION is currently gearing up for a comeback this summer.
“Voice Trot” will premiere on July 10.
