Your Two Cents: What Makes For A Good MC???
There are so many articles praising the two "nation's emcees": Kang Ho-dong and Yoo Jae-suk. These two alone dominate pretty much all the major variety shows on the three main broadcasting networks in Korea: KBS, SBS, MBC. You can flip through channel after channel, and it's these two that are alternated between them.
As a host/emcee myself, I watch these two to see what their secret to success is. What is it about Kang Ho-dong and Yoo Jae-suk that seem to never bore viewers?
So let me ask YOU dear listeners, what makes a good MC? If you want to get specific, why are Kang Ho-dong and Yoo Jae-suk SOOOO popular? What are their strengths (and weaknesses)? For example, I AM a Kang Ho-dong fan, but sometimes he's just too loud and shrill even. LOL! So that could be a possible weakness. To be fair and cover the other side, Yoo Jae-suk sometimes seems to laugh at EVERYTHING in exactly the same way. It makes things less funny when they really ARE funny. (Again, these are just MY personal opinions...don't send me hate mail! :P )
Post up your responses and don't forget to tune into KPI to listen for all the fun answers!!!
