Rumors have been swirling around MC and comedian Kang Ho-dong‘s return to TV, with many websites claiming that he will be hosting a variety show styled around fan club competitions. In this format, idols would marshal their fans to compete, resulting in a winner each episode. While the official confirmation has yet to materialize, speculation abounds on how this idea is both a ratings dream and a hotspot for drama and disaster.
It’s very likely that this “insider info” was leaked in order get more buzz for a prospective Kang Ho-dong show. The show has not been confirmed by MBC, and if he does receive his own variety show, it will probably lack the fan club competition element entirely, since the logistics would be near-impossible to manage. That said, with the buzz successfully generated, wouldn’t it be fun to speculate about that such a show would look like?
