Lee Seung-gi Confirmed as The Host of ‘Produce 48’

Singer and actor Lee Seung-gi has become a national producer in ‘Produce 48‘, making him the third host in the show following Jang Geun-suk and BoA.

The production team worked hard to find the MC from Korea and Japan, and Lee Seung-gi was the right person to do so. The show has constantly sent love calls to Lee Seung-gi, who accepted the MC position after much consideration.

As Lee Seung-gi himself is a singer, it is expected that he will pass along tips related to his debut as a senior singer and act as a mentor to the trainees.

Produce 48‘ gathered 96 leading Korean and Japanese trainees to participate in the show and completed its first recording on the morning of April 17. The first recording was performed without an MC. Lee Seung-gi will participate in the second shooting on the 23rd.
