Kim Min-ju to step down as MC of "Show! Music Core"

Kim Min-ju from IZ*ONE will host MBC's music show "Show! Music Core" for the last time on January 28. It has been about two years and seven months since she joined as an MC.

Kim Min-ju is currently working with NCT's Jungwoo and Stray Kids's LEE KNOW. She was selected as the MC of "Show! Music Core" on June 13, 2020 and has been the longest consecutive MC ever.

Kim Min-ju will focus on her acting career as an actress in the future. Last year, she won Female Rookie Award for "The Forbidden Marriage" at 2022 MBC Drama Awards.

Ahead of her last broadcast, Kim Min-ju said, "I was happy to spend a happy weekend listening to good songs with good people every Saturday. Thank you so much to Music Core family and fans who have always been watching us warmly. Please look forward to Music Core and my activities."

Kim Min-ju's successor MC has not been decided yet, and for the time being, various K-pop stars will appear on "Show! Music Core" as special MCs.
