Daily News Round-up: April 6, 2017

For the Daily News Round-up, I round up and summarize the stories on the front page of the Naver TV & Entertainment News section. Most of the stories there are actually about Kdramas and general celebrity gossip, so I just pick out the ones that are variety show related.

Kim Hee-sun to Join Kang Ho-dong for New Variety Show Island Musketeers

Kim Hee-sun was confirmed earlier today to be joining Kang Ho-dong and “Strong Heart” PD Park Sang-hyuk for a new variety show titled “Island Musketeers.” It’s a reality show where the cast members will live on an island for a week and interact with the locals there. 

Filming will begin during the last week of April and the first episode will air on May 22nd at 9:40 PM simultaneously on tvN and Olive TV. 

Summary of Notable Netizen Comments:

  • “It’s not that I’m putting down Kim Hee-sun, but honestly Kim Hee-sun is funny because she’s rarely on varieties. If she’s a regular cast member, I’m not sure it’ll work out.”
  • “Wasn’t Kim Hee-sun on Hwashin or whatever it was called???”
  • “Kim Hee-sun is best as a cameo, if she’s on for a long time, it becomes too messy.”
  • “This is just like that old tvN show Island Teacher.”
  • “That PD did “Roommate” and “Vocal War: God’s Voice” and he’s not fun at all . . “

Kim Sae-ron and Lee Soo-min to Leave Music Core

“Music Core” associates announced earlier today that both Kim Sae-ron and Lee Soo-min will be stepping down as Music Core MCs. Meanwhile, their co-host, ASTRO’s Cha Eun-woo will continue his MC position. Replacement MCs have not yet been decided.

This replacement will go alongside a format revamp where “Music Core” will add a ranking system starting on April 22. This is the first time the show has had ranking in 1 year and 4 months. 

Summary of Notable Netizen Comments:

  • “Kim Sae-ron really didn’t suit being a music show MC.”
  • “The two were the least appropriate as MCs.”
  • “It doesn’t seem like it’s been long since Lee Soo-min started the show.”
  • “Won Bin please start acting again. Kim Sae-ron is going to get married before you do another project.”
  • “Use this opportunity to write the scripts better . . the scripts are so obvious and cringe worthy.”
