Despite the huge popularity of 2NE1, Big Bang etc,
has anyone noticed the lack of variety show promotion for the YG fam?
Sure, all of the Big Bang members (sans Taeyang) have visited the
Family Outing set, but since their debut, these boys don't often appear
on any other shows. Likewise, unlike other rookie groups like 4minute,
2NE1 has yet to be on Star Golden Bell, or other shows that don't
explicitly feature their performance talents.
Unfortunately, we have no news to change that today for 2NE1, but G-Dragon has been confirmed to appear on SBS's newest show, "Kang Shim Jang" (강심장) which will be hosted by the ever-so-popular Kang Hodong. The first ever recording for this new performing arts program will be completed on September 24 in Deungchon-dong, Seoul. This will be G-Dragon's first guest appearance on an entertainment program as a solo artist.
This program was initially organized through internal discussion regarding the current Tuesday evening programming. Unlike typical one-on-one format performing arts programs, this show will feature a total of twenty-three (yes, you read that correctly!) guests, a stark contrast that will be sure to set this program apart from other shows. In other words, even though G-Dragon will be capturing the hearts of many, he'll have to share the spotlight with twenty-two others... tough luck, kid.
The first episode is scheduled to air on October 6th at 11:00 KST, so mark your calendars!
Big Bang leader GDragon and member SeungRi will be appearing for the telerecording to 1st episode of SBS new variety show ‘KangShimJang (Strong Heart)’ on 24th September.
By the title of the show, the show will follow a concept to find out which of the 20 over guests appearance has more bravery in their lifestyle circles through the talkshow section.
Other guest appearance for the 1st episode are So Nyeo Shi Dae YoonA, Epik High Tablo, Baek Ji Young, Jang YoonJeong, Kim TaeWoo, Solbi, MC Mong etc.
And much anticipation is for what kind of talks will be revealed from the 2 Big Bang members. Especially since the 2 are known for their close relationship, which has also earned them the nickname of ‘Tom and Jerry’.
Meanwhile, the host to the show will also be national MC Kang HoDong and the style to the talkshow is special because it is not going to be a 1-to-1 interview but a 1-to-many and for the first episode it will be a 1-to-23 format.
The first episode will be aired on 6th October.
