Super Junior's Heechul & LOONA's Chuu join panel of new military variety 'Steel Troop'


Channel A and SKY will be partnering up to launch a new type of military variety series, titled 'Steel Troop'. 

Hosted by MC Kim Sung Joo, 'Steel Troop' is a competition variety where representatives from all across Korea can challenge other army, navy, and air force units in the name of their respected troop!

As many of you know, military service is mandatory for all male citizens in South Korea, which means that most men take strong pride in the military unit they served under during their duties. Now, inactive soldiers have a chance to connect with other former recruits from their respective units, form teams, and compete against other teams in a variety of games and missions. 

A celebrity panel made up of comedian Jang Dong Min, Super Junior's Heechul, former UFC fighter Kim Dong Hyun, former presidential body guard Choi Young Jae, and last but not least, LOONA's Chuu will be hosting the series alongside Kim Sung Joo from the studio. 

'Steel Troop' is set to premiere some time in March of this year, simultaneously via Channel A and SKY TV.

This sounds really interesting, actually, and new. I'm wondering what kind of angle Heechul will take on it, too. Considering how important the military is to Korean men, we might actually see a more reserved Heechul than normal. Or he'll go the complete opposite and be the driving force at uplifting the mood. Either way, it's exciting! But, add this on to the hundreds of other shows he's doing. I swear he and Leeteuk are competing, lol.
