MBC Every1’s comedy variety show, ‘Weekly Idol’ is known for their funny MCs, Defconn and Doni as they interview the hottest acts in K-Pop. Recently, Doni (Jeong HyeongDon) has suspended all his activities and is concentrating on his health. This has led to new MCs to fill in for Doni in a temporary position called “Don-sa-dol” or “Idol who loves Doni”.
In the first episode, SungKyu from Infinite interviewed VIXX as they promoted for ‘Chained Up’. This was hilarious because Leo and SungKyu are great friends outside of work and SungKyu had never seen TaekWoon in an interview; which we found out, is very different than this personality outside of the Leo persona.
Heechul, who is known to be a great television personality as well as being a huge stage presence for Super Junior and M&D, let it be known that when he heard of Doni’s absence, he expected an invite to be an MC. Being close friends with both men, he showed much pride when he appeared on the show next to hyung. In the show, Defconn says to Heechul, “I asked him to help out once,” to which Heechul responded with, “When the articles about Jung HyungDon hyung surfaced, I expected it to some extent. That someone′s going to contact me,”
Heechul also added, “I think Weekly Idol is an influential program. I heard it′s the best program for beginner fan boys/fan girls.“
One of the great parts is that not only does Heechul have a huge personality, but his guests on the week he would be MCing also are known for their giant personalities, BTS. From the previews, you can see the crazy antics off all eight men when they are combined.
Check out the preview clip below.
I am excited to see this episode. As a fan of Weekly Idol, I always enjoy watching it. In this case, Weeky Idol + HeeChul + BTS = one happy fanboy for me. Are you excited to see this episode as well? Let us know.
