The ‘2011 Melon Music Awards‘ have announced that they’ve enlisted Super Junior‘s Leeteuk, actress Park Shin Hye, and B2ST‘s Doojoon to be the hosts for this year’s ceremony.
The three were chosen because of their influence in spreading the Hallyu wave. Super Junior has been receiving a lot of love in Europe and Asia, while B2ST will be starting their concert tour in Southeast Asia in December. Meanwhile, Park Shin Hye was recently cast for a Taiwanese drama called ‘Whirlwind District Office 1‘.
A representative from the ’2011 Melon Music Awards’ stated, “More so than previous years, 2011′s Melon Music Awards will focus on being a music show and a professional awards show. We plan on showing a lot of impressive stages and performances. We’re looking forward to the awards attracting a global audience, as the hosts themselves attracted a global interest through the Hallyu wave.”
Previous ‘Melon Music Awards’ hosts included Jang Geun Suk for the first ceremony and Song Joong Ki for the second.
JYJ‘s Junsu recently revealed his close friendship with B2ST members Kikwang and Doojoon, on Twitter.
On September 30th, Junsu tweeted Doojoon stating, “Doojoon-ah~ While I was looking at you and Kikwang today, laughter came out for some reason.” To which Doojoon replied, “Father’s laughter?” Kikwang, seeing the exchange between the two, chimed in, “Why laughter? How come I’m the only one who doesn’t understand?” Junsu then replied, “You two just… how should I say this… remind me of my members?”
Seeing the friendly Twitter exchange between the three, Netizens commented, “B2ST and JYJ seem good together. But, who is Jaejoong and who is Yoochun?,” “Junsu always had a cute image, so it’s a little awkward to hear his laughter referred to as ‘father’s laughter’,” and “It’s nice to see such a warm sunbae-hoobae relationship.”
Junsu, Doojoon, and Kikwang are currently members of the same celebrity soccer team, FC MEN.
