Eli of U-KISS will be stepping forward as one of the hosts, alongside American actor Jonathan Bennett, for NBC‘s special on the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games.
On February 7, Eli and Jonathan attended the recording of the Pyeongchang Olympic Program at a local tourist area in Pyeongchang, Gangwon-do, the designated location for the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympic Games.
At the site, Eli and Jonathan also filmed a promotional advertisement as well as a video for the broadcast. The advertisement will be aired on NBC, America’s official 2018 Winter Olympics broadcaster, every week during the Today Show and the Late Night Show with Seth Meyers starting March 5. The video will be aired in October on NBC’s 1st Look for American viewers.
Interestingly, Eli has been traveling to every popular tourist attraction in the Gangwon province since the 1st of February to film segments about traditional Korean homes and culture and will continue to do so in cities such as Gangneung and Sokcho.
