IU will soon be leaving for her six-week concert tour and while she is away, actor Lee Jong Suk will be stepping in to co-host SBSInkigayo alongside KARA’s Goo Hara and Nicole.

On May 18th, Inkigayo’s PD Park Kyung Duk informed TV Report, “Lee Jong Suk is selected to be the third emcee of the show and will begin appearing on Juen 3. Because IU will be gone for the next six weeks to hold a concert around the country, he will co-host the show with KARA’s Goo Hara and Nicole.”

He explained, “[Lee Jong Suk is] a trendy guy and has created various buzzwords. He’s also interested in music. So far, Inkigayo has been mainly [hosted] by female celebrities, but Lee’s appearance will add more fun and stir up a fresh appearance.”

It is expected that, the young actor will also be giving a special performance on June 3rd so there will definitely be something to look forward to.

As for what will happen after IU returns, PD Park explained, “IU will be back by the end of July, but KARA will get off the show due to their activities overseas. So Lee [Jong Suk] is likely to host the show with IU from that point. However, we need more time to organize things to decide whether we should keep the same cast for emcees or not.”

Oh I’m so excited to see him as a host!!! Can’t wait to see his special performance on June 3rd!!!
