Oh Sang Jin, former MBC announcer, will be hosting the 49th Paeksang Arts Awards. His appearance will be his first since he left MBC.
On April 16, Oh Sang Jin′s agency Prain TPC announced that "Oh Sang Jin will be hosting the 49th Paeksang Arts Awards, to take place on May 9 at the Seoul Kyunghee University Great Peace Palace, with Kim Ah Joong and Joo Won."
Even while he was with MBC, Oh Sang Jin has been active not only as an announcer but also as a TV personality on variety shows. He previously hosted the Korea Film Awards in 2008, heightening expectations for his upcoming MC feat.
Oh Sang Jin commented, "I′m happy to be joining in this meaningful ceremony. Those onstage should be the main attractions. I′ll work hard to build a mood in which both awardee and awarder won′t become nervous."
Oh Sang Jin is also in line to make a comeback to TV with Mnet′s dance survival show Dancing 9 as its main host.
