The next season of mobile-only channel MBC MBig TV‘s reality show “Celebrity Bromance” is poised to feature Jungkook of boy band BTS and Lee Min-woo of boy band Shinhwa, according to multiple reports Tuesday. The 18-year-old Jungkook, the youngest member of the boy band, said Lee, 36, was always his role model, which encouraged Jungkook to partner with Lee in the upcoming season.
“Shinhwa gave (BTS) some motivation,” Jungkook said. “They made me realize musicians are cool. I wish BTS could be a long-lasting group as Shinhwa has been.” Lee said he was inspired by BTS’s megahit “Dope".
BTS has openly picked the six-member boy band that has continued on for 18 years as their role models. On stage, BTS has covered the band’s hit songs “This Love” and “Perfect Man". The eighth season of “Celebrity Bromance” will premiere Tuesday at 11 p.m. through MBC MBig TV’s official account on Naver TV Cast and YouTube.
