Eight Korean pop idols -- namely Nichkhun, Lee Junho, Chansung (of 2PM), Jo Kwon, Jeong Jinwoon (2AM), Kang Min-hyuk (C.N.Blue), Lee Joon and G.O (MBLAQ) -- have been selected to host cable music channel Mnet's weekly music show starting Thursday.
Mnet explained yesterday that the popular idol group members -- newly nicknamed "MCD GUYZ" -- will team into groups of three or fours and take turns co-hosting popular music show "M countdown" each week.
"These eight singers are hot stars and icons who currently represent Korea's pop music scene", Mnet's chief producer Kim Ki-woong was quoted as saying. "We believe these guys are the perfect fit in delivering the current K-pop trend to viewers and that is why we selected them as emcees".
The producer further explained that "M countdown" aims to be "a global music show" and plans to display trendy and experimental performances every week, giving viewers something unique and special to watch in each episode.
The "MCD GUYZ" will host their first show tomorrow.
