“Inkigayo” Producer Gushes About New MCs Kim Min Suk, Gong Seung Yeon, And Jeongyeon
SBS’s “Inkigayo” recently welcomed its three new MCs, Gong Seung Yeon, TWICE’s Jeongyeon, and actor Kim Min Suk.
On their first day, Gong Seung Yeon and her sister Jeongyeon performed TWICE’s “Cheer Up,” while Kim Min Suk performed JYP’s “Who’s Your Mama.”
When asked if Kim Min Suk sang live for his performance, producing director Jang Seok Jin said, “Except for the part where he talks with the sisters, everything was live. Because it was his first time and he seemed really nervous, I let him choose, but he said he would do it live. He came in on a lift; when he first was on it, he was scared, but during the live broadcast, he got into character and came down no problem. He’s a hard worker so I’d like it if he did well in the future, but he has the talent to back it up so I have no worries about that.”
The PD then talked about how Gong Seung Yeon and Jeongyeon did a great job performing “Who’s Your Mama” with Kim Min Suk, and said, “The two sisters are really smart and have a lot of talent.”
Regarding more special performances from the MC trio, PD Jang Seok Jin said, “We always want to try new things. First, we want to have a theme every month, with a special performance every week. We’re not just calling it a ‘special performance.’ We really want special performances that you can’t see anywhere else, performances that the viewers want to see. We’re preparing really hard for the broadcast coming up on July 10.”
