Super Junior member Kim Heechul will be joining Mnets Idol School as a homeroom teacher!
Mnets new show Idol School is Koreas first girl group educational institution that will be premiering in July. Trainees will be taught in a program for 11 weeks. Afterwords, those who pass the final exam and are considered star students will be immediately debuting as part of a girl group.
Kim Heechul is expected to play a pivotal role as the homeroom teacher for Idol School. He will be acting as a support system to the students, giving them practical tips to becoming an idol.
In regards to his new role, he commented, I will be a true supporter and take care of the students with a mothers heart. The production team is expecting the homeroom teacher to be someone who has real experiences from both on stage and off stage, plus someone who can be both their senior and a friend.
Meanwhile, Idol School is set to minimize the time it takes for trainees to debut, so students will be joined by actual staff members to hold short-term focused, customized classes.
Are you excited for the show?
