MBLAQ and A-Pink have been chosen for an upcoming KBS variety show. This show will highlight various endangered species by having the idols take care of endangered animals for about a month.
The program will help raise public consciousness towards the often dire situations of these endangered animals, which in turn will raise awareness for environmental causes. Lesser-known animals will be given a chance to shine; baby alligators are candidates for the featured species.
Although the show is to be situated in the competitive time slot of Saturday evenings, KBS hopes to attract viewers through the show’s unique concept.
This new environmentally focused show has a tentative debut date of November 12th.
