IVE's Jang Won Young got everyone's attention when she appeared in tvN's "Game Caterers 2" Starship Entertainment special. The K-pop star showed everyone how disciplined she was when it came to her health and diet.
Starship Entertainment's artists and actors joined the game show, from IVE to Cosmic Girls to Monsta X to Song Seung Hun and more. The artists were divided into teams, and the winners would enjoy late-night snacks, but Jang Won Young didn't have any of them.
IVE played "Word Chain," where the participants had to complete a phrase. The group won and received different late-night snacks, like Tteokbokki, chips, ice cream, and coffee.
The six members, An Yu Jin, Ga Eul, Rei, Jang Won Young, Liz, and Leeseo, all returned to their rooms after victory and started enjoying the food. But not Jang Won Young.
"This seems like something good to bring since we can't do delivery here," she said. However, instead of eating, she was seen sipping on black coffee.
She then received heaps of praise from fans, saluting how strict she was with her diet and keeping her figure. One fan noticed that she didn't even touch her snacks, while another said she was already skinny.
Meanwhile, the new hosts of the upcoming 2022 KBS Song Festival have been announced, including Jang Won Young. KBS confirmed on Monday, November 14, that the female idol, along with Na In Woo and Kim Shin Young, would be the MCs for this year's event.
The network also revealed that aside from having "legendary MCS," "a magnificent lineup including unit performances" would be featured.
It's no surprise that KBS chose Jang Won Young as one of the festival's hosts. She currently MCs the network's "Music Bank" and has been receiving positive feedback for her incredible hosting skills.
On the other hand, Na In Woo has already built a strong relationship with KBS, fronting its variety show, like "2 Days & 1 Night," and K-dramas, like "River Where the Moon Rises" and "Jinxed at First."
In addition, after the recent passing of the veteran host Song Hae, Kim Shin Young has replaced the iconic MC in KBS's "National Singing Contest." Song Hae hosted the show for 34 years; now, Kim Shin Young's time to shine.
Though she has big shoes to fill, she has already proven her talent as a host and has delighted fans with her stint on the program. The 2022 KBS Song Festival will take place on Friday, December 16, at 8:30 p.m. KST.
