Jung Yong-hwa of boy band CNBLUE [10Asia]

Boy band 2AM's Jo Kwon and CNBLUE's Jung Yong-hwa have been chosen as new emcees for SBS TV's weekly music show "Inkigayo".

Korean public broadcaster SBS announced in a press release that the two singers will be replacing 2PM's Taecyeon and Wooyoung, who stepped down as hosts after the July 11 episode, and joining co-host Sulli of girl band f(x).

Jo, 20, debuted as the leader of idol group 2AM after being a trainee at agency JYP Entertainment for over seven years. 2AM made their debut in July 2008 with the single "This Song" and gained popularity through K-pop hits such as "Can't Let You Go Even If I Die" and "I Did Wrong" earlier this year.

Jeong, 21, is the leader and main vocalist of Korean indie-band-turned-idol-group CNBLUE, which stands for "Code Name Blue". The group released two singles in Japan before making their debut in Korea last January with the mini-album "Bluetory".

Jeong had also garnered much attention ahead of making his debut with the band by appearing in the hit TV series "You're Beautiful" (SBS, 2009) alongside Hallyu stars Jang Geun-suk and Park Shin-hye.

Jo and Jeong will be featured as hosts on "Inkigayo" starting July 19.
