The new MCs of Weekly Idol' name the stars they want on the show

The new MCs of MBC Every1's 'Weekly Idol' named their dream guests. 


On January 2, new MC's Kwanghee, Jo Se Ho, and Nam Chang Hee, along with producer Lim Yeon Jung attended the press conference for the new season of 'Weekly Idol.'

To the question asking which idols they want on the show, Jo Se Ho answered, "The people I'm personally close with are coming to mind. iKON and WINNER, who I've worked with before, and I think it'll be nice for Taeyang to greet fans through 'Weekly Idol' after getting discharged from the military."


Next, Kwanghee said, "There are foreign pop stars who come visit Korea. I want famous figures such as Ariana Grande to visit."

Lastly, Nam Chang Hee said, "I personally like groups with numbers in their name. TWICE and BTS promote overseas often as world stars. I want to provide a place where they can comfortably adjust when they come back home."


The new 'Weekly Idol' is scheduled to start on January 9. 

  1. Jo Se Ho
  2. Kwanghee
  3. NAM CHANG HEE
  4. WEEKLY IDOL

maybe after 2 more failed reboots. i really don't understand the thinking behind the weekly idol production team. it's not that hard, just pick people who have experience with making idols feel comfortable, people that bring out the best in idols, and people that make the guests (idols) the center of the show.


sangmin was a complete miscast. seyoon could have been a good MC but he rarely talked. shinyoung just tried to make the show about herself.

but heechul and hani had fond memories of the old hosts and producing team.


maybe they turned the offer down cause of the circumstances and how they felt about the old team.

The likelihood of Hani x Heechul hosting 'Weekly Idol' is as likely as Don and Conn returning, so... that ain't gonna happen.

Maybe those two declined out of respect to the original hosts.

Remember when this show used to be about promoting new idols and not just the same ones? That's what made it interesting. Now, it's a lot of the same idols doing things they've already done and it's too repetitive.

But the don and con was kind of abusive in the same time, bringing this show to an end. Theyre more chill now in idol room, less physical punishment

I won't deny that, but at the same time at least they got more artists in instead of almost the same 5 or 6 groups on rotation. They've also treated groups poorly, but at least those groups were able to get some screentime.

They only did it out of love like with jackson when miracle got a first win doni and coni clapped and smiled even through got7 wasnt there and with infinite it was just helping them bc imagine them going to a different country theres 100x worst mcs and with idol room twice issue was crazy but i agree he went far that day but she shouldve told me to stop or move

Kwanghee it's the only funny guy here, they should get 2 more idols, the interactions are cool to watch, it was very fun with Hani and Heechul.

Jo Se Ho doesn't fit in these types of shows, he was great in infinity challenge and roommate, he was dreadful in happy together 3, just don't see him doing good at all here.

Nam Chang Hee is just lame.

All the more popular groups seem to go to Idol room so I really don't see them getting the idols they want anyway. I stopped watching that show when the other hosts left and only watched it once when my favorite idols were on the show. The old 3 that came after the original hosts were horrible and seemed fake with their laughs. I wouldn't even waste my time if it wasn't a group I liked on that show. It was boring and seemed stale.

Heechul with Shindong would be better. Hani was really good too. why someone who's not funny like Seho or -even with my whole love- Kwanghee are the mc's??

Seems like an interesting combination :) I'm curious to see how Weekly Idol will be with them as the MCs. I hope the three of them will hit it off more easily then the last MCs did. Furthermore, it's quite understandable if Hani and Heechul reclined the MC positions or if the Weekly Idol staff did not have them in mind as the MCs; both are idols busy with idol activities and hosting other variety shows as well. It would've been tough for them to also have something like Weekly Idol on their schedules. Wish them all the best though!

I really don't understand why they need three hosts. Like yes it worked with heechul, hani and coni, but that's the exception not the norm.

Oh god.. its actually worse than the original 3. Seho is so has been. He can't carry anything alone. There's a reason why Chang Hee has never "made it" and Kwanghee just got back from army and is more of a extra/reaction add.


This will be a complete train wreck.

Honestly, they seem to like YG so if they can get a YG family special...

If they are better MCs maybe they can bring some spark back into the show because honestly I like the corners here better then Idol Room. Like Random Play Dance so I can get to know a selection of the idols songs.

But as of right now, Idol Room is more fun.

"The people I'm personally close with are coming to mind".


Sounds like the previous woman MC, who pulled strings to get her friends to appear. Not that I'm complaining because her friends are girl groups but this new MC's friends are boy groups. So that sucks.
