Super Junior‘s Leeteuk will be appearing on “Produce 101” as a special MC!
On May 8th KST, it was revealed that Leeteuk would be appearing as a special MC for the second round of evaluations for “Produce 101: Season 2” as BoA was unable to attend the filming due to a schedule in Japan.
The second round of evaluation stages with the 60 remaining contestants was held on May 7th. Leeteuk, who is under SMTOWN like BoA, helped fill the MC position. He is known for his exceptional hosting style and was able to fill BoA’s vacancy with excellent results.
The second round will focus on position evaluations through vocals, rap and dance. The songs for the vocal positions include BoA’s “Amazing Kiss,” BTS‘s “Spring Day,” and more. For rap, we have iKON‘s “RHYTHM TA” and Zico‘s “Boys and Girls,” among others. The dance songs consisted entirely of Western songs such as Ed Sheeran‘s “Shape of You” and NSYNC‘s “Pop,” to name a few.
Many are curious what kind of synergy Leeteuk will show with the trainees, not only due to his MC skills, but also his understanding of the hardships one faces on their journey to stardom.
