JTBC has announced a new idol news show called Idol Room that will reunite Jung Hyung Don and Defconn after the two left Weekly Idol earlier this year.
The two comedians had hosted Weekly Idol for 7 years before they decided to leave earlier this year.
Idol Room will report idol news as the only JTBC show to feature only idols in the cast. It aims to become a reliable and trustworthy newscast like JTBC’s Newsroom.
“It may sound a bit similar to Weekly Idol, but we are planning to add some new aspects to it. After hearing that [Jung Hyung Don and Defconn] would be leaving Weekly Idol, we discussed this new show with them and ultimately decided to work together.” — Idol Room Chief Producer Sung Chi Kyung
Idol Room is expected to take the legendary “Doni” and “Coni” duo into a new, refreshing format.
After years of working together, the two have formed a bond with not only each other but idols and stars in the industry, as well as viewers who are sure to watch the two together again!
The first episode of Idol Room is scheduled to air in May.
