The Best Variety Show MCs of 2017
I got the idea for making this list after watching Jo Woo-jong rank various MCs on Knowing Bros Episode 61. Of course, the top five list is subjective, but I did my best to keep by biases out and try to create a fairly accurate list.
There were certainly a lot of people who I thought about adding, but just didn’t make the cut like Park Myung-soo, Jun Hyun-moo, Kim Seong-joo, Kim Yong-man, and Park Soo-hong, so I thought I’d at least give them a mention here.
When coming up with the top five, I thought about both their longevity and impact on Korean variety shows.
Also, one unfortunate thing I noticed was that there were no women on the list. Hopefully, that will change in the next few years because there are quite a few promising rising stars like Park Na-rae and Jang Do-yeon.
