On September 21st, the producers of ‘Golden Fishery‘ revealed that Super Junior‘s Kyuhyun had become a temporary MC for MBC’s ‘Radio Star‘. He will be joining a cast comprised of comedians Kim Guk Jin, Kim Gura, and Yoon Jong Shin.
PD Park Jung Kyu revealed, “Kyuhyun will be joining us as an MC for the time being. He is not a fixed MC, but a junior of Kim Heechul. We will be keeping the fourth MC position open for changes. Those that are capable of providing youthful energy for ‘Radio Star’ will be given the opportunity.”
The reason for the change in the fourth MC position was because of Kim Heechul’s departure, who decided to start his military duties this year. Even with his departure, MCs felt that they wanted to keep the role of a younger figure to provide contrast against the three older MCs.
The PD continued, “Kim Guk Jin, Kim Gura, and Yoon Jong Shin are so funny and work very well together. What we need is a youthful energy. We hope to use the position of the fourth MC to bring in stars with that energy. We could set up a fixed position, but we feel that it will only make the show seem too plotted. We don’t plan on switching out the fourth MC every week or even every two weeks. We want to leave the door open for potential to just really listen to the viewpoint and stories of the youth.”
As the maknae of Super Junior, Kyuhyun was chosen for his bizarre charms and MCing potential. “He’s charming, sings well, and is a great fit for ‘Radio Star’. We’re looking forward to what he’ll be showing on a variety show and how he’ll be interacting with his new hyungs.”
