Previous reports revealed he'll be appearing on the show, and on April 5, FNC Entertainment confirmed, "It's true Hongki is appearing on 'Produce 48' as a vocal trainer." As the aim of the new 'Produce' show is to debut a girl group, fans are already curious how the F.T. Island vocalist will teach the trainees and if he'll be focusing on rock vocal techniques.
