Actress Kim to Host TV Music Program

Kim Jung-eun, the heroine of the handball movie "Forever the Moment", will host her first music program, "Chocolate".

Instead of the shorts and sneakers she wore in the hit film, Kim appeared at a press conference Wednesday, in a creme color ruffled dress and expressed her excitement by saying that she finally fulfilled her dream.

"I have dreamed of hosting this kind of program for the last five years and I am so happy that I finally can", she said.

"Chocolate" is a music/talk show that will follow Lee Juck's "Music Space" on Tuesdays. Viewers will be able to see not only singers but also other celebrities show off their vocal talents.

"Considering that I'm hosting a music program, I thought I needed some sort of a connection. It seems I'm overreacting, but I have started practicing playing the piano for the program. We are going for an acoustic and non-digital atmosphere where the viewers can listen to memorable oldies", she said.

Viewers have enjoyed a series of music/talk shows, from Lee So-ra's "Propose", Yoon Do-hyun's " Love Letter " on KBS, Lee Juck's "Music Space" on SBS to Kim Dong-ryul's "For you" on MBC. Yoon's and Kim's programs are the only ones airing currently. These programs were full of live music and always offered a little bit more. Instead of merely singing and leaving the stage, the hosts and guests shared a talk so viewers could have the chance to feel they were actually bonding with their favorite stars. Another feature is that celebrity guests ranged from singers to actors and even sports stars.

Perhaps it was because she was not a singer, like all the previous hosts of the music/talk programs, but it seemed that Kim was determined to make this program work not only for the audience but her as well.

"Being the first music program that will be launched under my name puts pressure on me, but I will do my best. I won't be a hostess who just says as she is told with pretty dresses, but try to emcee as if I were a viewer myself", she said.

"Chocolate" will air March 11 at 12:35 p.m. on SBS.
