All The Top Stars in Korea Have Done THIS Before They Got Famous

2017/03/31 | 7709 views | Permalink

Gong Yoo, Song Joong-ki, Park Bo-gum, Jun Ji-hyun, Song Hye-kyo… These top stars all share something in common on their resume. The fact that they are in acting career? Well, yes, of course. But what I'm talking about is something totally out of k-drama or movies.

It's the fact that they've all been a host of the music program for a period of time before they became famous. There is even a little superstitious rumor that if you host a music program, you will become a top star because of this history. Which is understandable, most of the music program is on air as a live, which require a quick thinking and smooth adlib skills. Also, there's always a partner for the co-host, so it is important to create a chemistry, which I would think that ability is very helpful in romance dramas.

So, who have gone down the path of the music program host before they got famous?


Gong Yoo (MBC - 1/10/04 - 7/3/04)


Park Bo-gum (KBS 5/1/15 - 6/24/16)


So Ji-sub (MBC - 10/23/99 - 4/15/00)


Song Joong-ki (KBS - 8/7/09 - 11/19/10)


Song Hye-kyo (KBS - 5/2/00 - 10/3/00)


Lee Jong-suk (SBS - 6/3/12 - 12/2/12) (Also, IU was his partner!)


Jun Ji-hyun (SBS - 2/1/98 - 5/24/98)


Also, many other stars like Song Ji-hyo, Jang Geun-suk, Park Seo-joon, Namgoong Min, Ji Sung, and Cha Seung-won have all been on the path of music program host!
