On December 8th MBC announced the hosts for this year's MBC Gayo Daejejeon. The annual musical program will take place on December 31st as a year-end event. Yoona, who has hosted the event since 2015, will return once again as an emcee. Announcer Jang Sung-kyu will also be present, the only host this year who is traditionally known as a broadcast host as opposed to a celebrity in his own right.
Kim Seon-ho is the main new face for this year's broadcast. Kim Seon-ho has quickly become a popular entertainer due to his role on "Start Up" despite being a second lead. Due to commitments for a stage play early next year, Kim Seon-ho has yet to commit to a new drama. Nevertheless, his name has come up with regularity in smaller gigs such as this one, whetting the appetite of fans local and domestic to see him in a new widely broadcasted long form project.
