Wonder Girls member Hyerim is to become the new host of Arirang TV’s K-pop program “Pops in Seoul.”

She will be replacing BTOB’s Peniel Shin and will start as the official new host on Aug. 26.

With Hyerim as the new host, Arirang TV has announced that the program will also include a new section called “Born to Rock the MIC.” An artist or group will be chosen for each section and viewers will be able to look into their beginnings and history as K-pop artists. The section also plans to include Hyerim choosing one of the songs from the section and giving a live performance on-air.

Skarf member Tasha will make an appearance on the show and will be in charge of introducing viewers to choreography for popular K-pop songs.

The program will also include the sections “Hot 20 Playlist,” with an appearance from LC9 member E.Den, and “K-Pop A to Z,” where Hyerim will introduce viewers to the latest, hottest issues in the K-pop industry.
