HAVING DEBUTED ONLY RECENTLY, KEP1ER’S KIM CHAEHYUN IS EVIDENTLY MAKING WAVES AS SHE GEARS UP TO BECOME THE NEW MC FOR SBS MTV’S THE SHOW!
It has been only about a week since Kep1er made its,much-awaited debut. While the group is running ‘vroom, vroom, vroom like a supersonic’ and steadily making its mark in the music scene, member Kim Chaehyun, is preparing to charm fans but this time, as the new MC of SBS MTV’s The Show.
The idol made quite an impression as a center of the girl group created through Mnet’s Girls Planet 999: The Girls Saga, which ended in October last year. As Chaehyun took breaths away with her outstanding vocal skills and her unrivaled tone when she appeared on Girls Planet, she had been nicknamed “Vocal Fairy”. She dazzled through every performance, on every stage as well. Moreover, Chaehyun caught the attention of global fans with her show-stopping visuals and elegant style.
The Kep1er member will be succeeding WEi’s Kim Yo Han, Weeekly’s Jihan, and ATEEZ’s Yeosang after they left The Show back in December. It goes without saying that it is indeed an admirable feat for Chaehyun as she takes on the role of the MC of The Show at the same time as her debut. Fans around the world are undeniably curious as to how the program, as led by the songstress will look like.
Kep1er made its debut on January 3 with the release of their first mini-album FIRST IMPACT and its title track “WA DA DA”. The group is indeed showcasing its potential and popularity with its splendid takeover on various music charts. They further set a new record for the highest first-day sales of any K-pop debut girl group album in Hanteo history, as they sold a superb total of 206,569 copies in the first week of its release (from January 3 to 9).
Previously, Kep1er also entered the Worldwide iTunes Album chart with FIRST IMPACT at No. 2. The album also ranked No. 5 on the European iTunes Album Chart, and was among the Top 5 on the U.S. iTunes Album Chart. The title track ‘WA DA DA’ also marked its entry at No. 21 on the Worldwide iTunes Song Chart.
Meanwhile, SBS MTV’s The Show, in which Kim Chaehyun is the new MC, is broadcast every Tuesday at 6 PM KST.
