It has been reported on January 8th that FTISLAND’s Jaejin, BTOB’s Hyunsik, and MAMAMOO’s Hwasa are about to take up the challenge of being radio DJs!

The three stars are said to be hosting the radio show KBS Cool FM (89.1Mhz) K-Pop Planet, which is expected to start on January 11th. The radio show is planned to broadcast weekly, every Sunday from 11pm to 12am KST.

The show will allow an opportunity for the DJs to carry out discussions about music and even hold impromptu musical performances for their listeners. Video contents from the show are also expected to be shared through an official YouTube channel.

BTOB’s Hyunsik is expected to be the main host for the radio show. He expressed, “I always really wanted to be a radio DJ. I want to DJ honestly and comfortably. The three of us DJs have a passion for music, so I think it will be a fun and happy time for us.

Additionally, FTISLAND’s Jaejin expressed, “I always wanted to take up the challenge to be a radio DJ someday, so I am excited to be given this opportunity. I hope to have an enjoyable time and learn many things through the program, and I hope that through much practice I can meet my fans through the radio everyday.

On January 6th, it was teased through KBS Cool FM Sukira’s official Twitter account that a new radio program was coming up, along with a teaser video for K-Pop Planet.

Aside from the new challenge of being radio DJs, all three individuals have proven to be musically talented in their own ways.
