SF9's Chani Talks About His Experience As MC On

Son Bum Soo, Shinhwa’s Jun Jin, Solbi, and SF9’s Chani appeared as guests on the January 13 episode of MBC’s “Radio Star.”

The “Radio Star” hosts asked him about his nickname “Ox Chani,” a reference to his hardworking nature, and Chani explained, “I recently worked on five projects at the same time. I filmed a web drama, a movie, and I work as an MC on ‘Music Core.'” He added that he is also working on two dramas, one as a special guest actor (“True Beauty“) and one called “Imitation” (working title) for KBS.

Chani also talked about his experience being an MC on “Music Core,” a position that he has held since February 2019. He said, “On music shows, the MCs have to speak in a high tone and in a bouncy way like a bouncing ball. There’s something formal about it. I tried to break this mold and got scolded. I tried to sound more natural but I was almost fired because I wasn’t bouncy enough.”

He went on, “I’ve also messed up the pronunciation while speaking. I was supposed to say ‘paid text message’ very precisely, but I was so nervous that I said ‘paid Mensa message’ instead. I was also introducing EXO’s Kai once and called him ‘teacher’ by mistake.”

Kim Gura mentioned that it is difficult for idols to be an MC on music shows for a long time, given that the shows film every week and idols are often busy with comebacks and concerts and other events. Chani said, “I have a lot of ambition to be an MC. I want to do it for a long time. I love ‘Music Core.’ I also have a lot of interest in variety shows.”

Chani and Son Bum Soo then teamed up to host a music show segment together as the representatives of the “modern” and “old-school” music show hosts.
