For the past year, K-Pop fans have enjoyed watching TXT‘s Soobin and OH MY GIRL‘s Arin host the popular award show Music Bank. Now that their contracts are coming to a close, people are extremely interested in seeing who may be picked next!
Over a week after its initial release, the interview where Music Bank director Han Kyuong Cheon explained the show’s selection criteria for deciding on new MCs started gaining a lot more traction.
Although Han Kyuong Cheon never specified whether or not fan opinions are taken into consideration throughout the casting process, the comments section of the YouTube video have exploded, exceeding its view count by more than 50,000 at the time of publishing with different ‘nominations’ for the position.
Music bank literally never said anything about nominating idols for the mc position though what is with this ratio.
The impact Soobin and Arin had wow.
TXT is the standard. pic.twitter.com/9VQTUrOEiV

However, a lot of viewers don’t want to see Soobin and Arin leave just yet! Fans love the on-screen chemistry they have with each other as well as their guests, and are even asking Music Bank to extend both of their contracts rather than hiring new MCs.

it'd be a loss for Music Bank to change MCs tho, you can't find another pair who would make Dolphin a dance craze, trended for weeks, even go as far as raising the song on charts for a while and tame Jessi. NO

we can all agree that Soobin and Arin are the best mcs and music bank became one of the best music shows. they always create amazing atmosphere and we can see that other artists feel comfortable around them. even staff mentioned many times that they really like work with them.
