After School’s Uee to Host Seventeen’s Showcase
After School‘s Uee is going to help her labelmates Seventeen prepare for their debut by hosting their special showcase on May 10 in Seoul.
Seventeen and Uee’s agency Pledis Entertainment says, “Uee has been watching the growth of Seventeen carefully as a fellow member of our family, and her love for her hoobaes is extraordinary.”
They add that she therefore volunteered to help out with the showcase. “She has a special affection for them and is cheering them on,” they say.
Uee was a long-time MC on the popular show “Music Bank,” so she has plenty of experience to be hosting this important event for her friends and labelmates.
Seventeen’s showcase is expected to bring out a huge audience of excited fans, with seating for up to 1000 people. Despite the fact that they haven’t officially debuted yet, the band amassed a large fan base through their previous show “SeventeenTV,” which aired from 2012 to 2014.
The guys are currently starring in their own reality show entitled “Seventeen Project,” which aired its first episode on May 5.
