I.M, Rapper and maknae of Monsta X, has been announced as the new co-host of KBS World TV show “K-Rush.”
“K-Rush” is a newer show meant to be the go-to for international Kpop fans searching for their favorite artists’ new interviews and fun games. The KBS World TV YouTube channel started this show on March 10, 2017, in hopes to give more fans the latest K-star news.
In order to reach out to international crowds, each episode is spoken in English— with the exception of speaking with the artists in interviews. Due to this, the hosts are expected to have a decent understanding and speaking level of English. Red Velvet‘s Wendy was the first host, followed by Wonder Girls‘ Hyerim and her co-host BamBam of GOT7! After BamBam left, I.M was sent in to take over!
I.M’s first episode as an MC involved the rest of the Monsta X hilariously “testing” their maknae’s hosting skills. This will be I.M’s first hosting experience.
