MC Yoo Jae Suk who has been the most popular host by a mile will be facing new competition from new programs very soon.
Yoo Jae Suk is now hosting MBC “Infinity Challenge”, “Come To Play”, KBS “Happy Together Season 3” and SBS “Good Sunday”. Other competing against his programs have undergone a format change to challenge his reputation.
With “Infinity Challenge” biggest rival “Line Up” being terminated, Kang Ho Dong’s Star King has stepped up and become it’s biggest challenger ever. With KBS 2TV “Sponge 2.0” also being shown in the same timeslot as “Infinity Challenge”, it has become a three-way battle between Yoo Jae Suk, Kang Ho Dong and Lee Hwi Jae. All three are best of friends off-screen.
Most are concerned about the competition between Yoo Jae Suk and Kang Ho Dong who are regarded as the best hosts in Korea right now. The frequent change in competitors against Yoo Jae Suk who has remained ever-present goes to show that his hosting ability is unrivaled. It would be interesting to see if the new challengers are mere pretender or true contenders in the long run.
