Top K-pop girl group SISTAR member Bora and rookie actor Park Seo-joon will host KBS’s weekly music show “Music Bank.”

The two stars have been decided to become the new faces of “Music Bank” by taking emcee roles from next Friday, KBS announced during the channel’s briefing session for autumn programming held at the KBS radio studio in Seoul, Korea Thursday.

“It feels so refreshing to emcee the show I have always performed in,” said the 23-year-old girl idol, while Park delivered his thrill that, “It feels like a destiny because SISTAR made a debut when I was doing my service at the military. I’ll do my best to not to bring troubles to the show.”

Park Seo-joon, 24, made debut in 2011 by appearing in the music video of B.A.P’s leader Bang Yong-guk’s single “I Remember.” He most recently starred in MBC’s hit weekend drama “Pots of Gold” as a haughty third son opposite to Baek Jin-hee.

Accordingly, the show’s current emcees which took their job from this April, namely 2AM’s Jinwoon, who is suffering an ankle fracture from a car accident, and actress Park Se-young, the heroin of KBS’s daily drama “A Tale of Two Sisters,” are having their last appearance tonight.
