Why Did Kang Ho Dong’s New Variety Show Change Its Name To ‘Moonlight Prince’?

Kang Ho Dong’s new KBS variety show has changed its name to ‘Moonlight Prince’.

The staff recently confirmed that the title of Kang Ho Dong’s variety show, which will start airing on the third week of January, will be ‘Moonlight Prince’. Though the show was initially set to be called ‘I Like You. A Night to Meet’, the title was changed as it was decided that a title that was shorter and had a greater impact would be more appropriate.

Regarding this, a representative of ‘Moonlight Prince’ explained, “The secret behind the name of the program will be revealed after shooting the first episode. The staff and representatives of the program are keeping everything top-secret. Even the celebrities participating in the show haven’t been told all the specifics of the show. As this is a program that Kang Ho Dong and the staff have spent a lot of time and effort on, we plan to bring a surprise with us when we present the show to viewers.”

A representative of the KBS variety sector also added, “‘I Like You. A Night to Meet’ was only a temporary title. The staff recently held a meeting and have decided to go with a fresh title of ‘Moonlight Prince’.”

‘Moonlight Prince’ will hold its first closed filming on the 12th of January. The first guest has been confirmed as Lee Seo Jin and the talk show will take place in a variety of ways. ‘Moonlight Prince’ will combine the strengths of variety shows like ‘YaShimManMan’, ‘Sang Sang Plus’ and ‘Happy Together’ and honest talk shows like ‘Knee Drop Guru’, ‘Win Win’ and ‘Healing Camp’. The MCs will be part of a ‘Kang Line’ and will have a horizontal relationship rather than a vertical one.

Meanwhile, ‘Moonlight Prince’ is garnering attention for combining the forces of Screenwriter Moon Eun Ae, who is called the Midas of the variety sector and participated in MBC’s ‘Golden Fishery-Knee Drop Guru’, and PD Lee Yae Ji, who has worked on KBS 2TV’s ‘Public Talk Show  Hello’. The MC team is made up of Kang Ho Dong, Choikang Changmin, Brave Brothers, Jung Jae Hyung and Tak Jae Hoon and the show will begin airing on the 22nd at 11:200pm.
