You can catch the upgraded 'Weekly Idol' with MCs Kwanghee, Jo Se Ho, and Nam Chang Hee beginning January 9 at 5 PM KST!

Excited for Kwanghee but I feel like the chemistry of seho with idol groups is always off. He doesn't know how to interact with them or create entertaining and funny moments unless someone like yoo jae suk is there to help him so this probably wont go well.

Even YJS can't save Seho most of the time on HT. I don't understand why they keep him when he kills the atmosphere/rhythm time and time again. Unless, that's what they want?

kwanghee yes. he's very good with idols and has variety experience. no to the other two MCs though. jo seho already has a history of mistreating idols and i don't think ive ever seen nam change hee interact with idols either. i feel like they would ignore kwanghee as well. honestly there should be a maximum of 2 MCs.

I personally don't understand why a lot of people hate on Seho. His guestings on Running Man always cracked me up. I also found him funny during his short time in Infinite Challenge. He was a bit meh in Happy Together though, but overall I've never been disappointed in him. Though I honestly did not like him initially during his early guestings in IC, but that was ages ago.

because it is the fad amongst international fans to dislike him.

Honeslty at this point there isn’t much lower they can go with the show. DoniConi set the bar very high and what made them work so well was 1. They’re hilarious on their own 2. They treated all guests equally, didn’t matter if you were a rookie or JYP himself, they’ll roast you, make you do embarrassing things, but in the end make sure you had a good time. 3. They worked was TOGETHER as a TEAM.

I think the biggest issue with the last 3 MCs was the fact that they didn’t have the kind of chemistry DoniConi had together. Plus carrying on what they left wasn’t easy. They tried and did improve but it just wasn’t the same show anymore. So I’m curious as to what the new hosts would be like together. It would’ve been nice if they added in a female host though since it’s good to have a female perspective on things But more than anything, please bring back some of the old segments! I miss the regular random play dance, the magic dance, and oppaya aegyo!

this mc lineup will either hit or miss HARDLY. kwanghee maybe good, but havent seen saeho lead a variety show. i think chan hee would do good, about their chemistry, hmmm. time will tell. one question thou, why would they keep pushing 3 mcs for weekly idol. you dont need 3 mcs to lead a small scale program. :/.


the last time three mc worked was coni, hani, heechul (it worked because its heechul, heechul is really versatile). if they really are pushing a 3man mc, they should balance out the chemistry. a very aggressive mc, a passive one and the one who leads the team. the current lineup only had the aggressive ones, and no one balances it out. on this new lineup, it seems all of them are too passive :( kwanghee is good when suported heavily, same thing goes with saeho. they are good but needs a pushing factor.

So every week is Jo Se Ho going to try to be the center of attention? Cause that's usually what he does. VERY unfunny.

I'm excited for kwanghee, but a bit nervous for Seho. He has a bad habit of ignoring idols unless they're famous and that's not what this show should be about.

seho and changhee are friends since many many years back so they have great chemistry. I wonder how kwanghee will fit in with them?

All these MCs are funny but I don't think they'll be good in weekly idol.

Just end the show & make sth else, it can never reach DoniConi's level :(

based on all the previous variety show i have watched, Revamping a new revamped (less than 2 years airing) only means that the show is now on the waiting list of the chopping block. this season would be the deciding factor whether they'll continue or be cancelled. theyll only be given less than 6 months to regain its glory, and when the audience does not still favor them, well its a good bye :( . best wish to this team hope it all goes well.

the only thing that i would like them to do, is to get over the doni coni duo. the doni/coni era was a legend. but the new weekly idol should also build a new identity. new games, new atmosphere that CATERS TO THE TEAM. (and not based on how DC tean ran the previous WI.

Never have problems with Seho but I dont think this line up will help Weekly Idol. Maximum MC should 2 and if they choose Kwanghee, they need pair up him with someone else, not Seho. Maybe Chang Hee is Ok. If they choose Seho, need to pair him with someone senior than him. Because I think Seho not really know how be lead MC especially with Idols without help from his senior or someone that more comfortable around idols.

no female host? they should get a pretty woman host so that even if guests are boring viewers get to see a pretty woman.
