Following news that Block B’s Zico and actress Kim So Hyun are stepping down as MCs on the weekly MBC music show Music Core, it is reported that VIXX’s leader N will be taking over as a fixed MC.
According to a music industry official, N is expected to join the MC lineup for Music Core starting the end of April.
N had previous experience of being a special MC on the show with Zico and Kim So Hyun, but with the latter two stepping down, many are anticipating the upcoming chemistry and collaboration between N and current MC SHINee’s Minho, with the inclusion of another MC whose name has yet to be announced.
The artist is currently engaged in a few other individual schedules with his speaking and entertainment skills, as one of the casts in MBC’s variety show Bachelor’s Party, as well as being a DJ on an upcoming SBS radio program.
There is a possibility that N might be replaced by a special MC on some occasions during his time on Music Core, as VIXX has received numerous love calls from overseas, including their appearance at a Global Citizen Earth Day event in Washington D.C., while member Hongbin hinted that they will be visiting New York City and Paris soon as well. The group’s second solo concert UTOPIA had also kickstarted in Seoul last month, so they are expected to visit other countries in time to come.
Meanwhile, VIXX’s Hongbin is also an MC of another music show, SBS MTV The Show.
