According to an exclusive report from Hankyung, AB6IX‘s Daehwi and Han Hyun Min are leaving their MC positions on M! Countdown following the February 4th episode.
The two have been working together as the MCs for M! Countdown since joining on April 10, 2019, for over a year and ten months. They both decided to step down from the MC positions to focus more on their personal activities.
Later, another exclusive report from SPOTV stated that (G)I-DLE‘s Miyeon and actor Nam Yoon Soo will become the new MCs starting with the next broadcast.
As both new faces are born in 1997, they are expected to have a strong chemistry. International fans may recognize Nam Yoon Soo from Netflix drama Extracurricular, in which he played the role of Kwak Ki Tae.
In response to both reports, Mnet has confirmed:
Lee Daehwi and Han Hyun Min will leave the program after the broadcast today.
The new MCs, (G)I-DLE member Miyeon and model-turned-actor Nam Yoon Soo, are confirmed. A live broadcast will not be held next week because of the Lunar New Year holiday, so their first broadcast will be on February 18.
