Kang Ho Dong’s New Program, ‘Moonlight Prince’ to be a Book-Centered Talk Show


Kang Ho Dong has finished recording his first episode of his new KBS variety show.

The recording for the new show, officially titled as Moonlight Prince, took place on January 12 with Kang Ho Dong and his co- hosts, Max Changmin, Brave Brothers, Jung Jae Hyung and Tak Jae Hoon.

The mystery guests for the episode was kept under tight wraps but the producers did reveal the new show’s premise and format.

Moonlight Prince will be a book and theme focused talk show.

In it, the invited guest for the week will directly select a book of his or her choosing and the episode’s topics and themes will be centered around the selected book.

In this way, each week’s topic can range from such wide-spanning themes as adolescence to investment and more. The guests and MCs will then input their own experiences and thoughts on the topics.

In addition, a portion of the proceeds from each week’s episode will be donated to a charity of the guest’s choice.

The show’s producers are promising an entirely new and refreshing talk show format and confidently shared the first episode’s recording went beyond their expectations.

The first episode of Moonlight Prince premieres on January 22.

I'd actually be interested to see what books some of my biases would choose. Who do you want to be a guest on the show Omona, and what book do you think they'd choose?

Just so happy to see Shim on TV being his snarky adorbs self.

And I wonder if they'll let the MCs pick their book of choice as well. (And I hope Yunho will go on the show too.)

I think any variety show games based on that book might be 19+ LOL!

I'm just waiting to see who will be the first to choose One Piece XD

Changmin himself? LOL

This sounds so literary... but the show title is a bit cheesy. What does the moonlight and a prince have to do with books?
purekpopology 16th-Jan-2013 04:14 am (UTC)
nice userpic <3! reading is most definitely sexy~

i thought it sounded kinda... literary too, but it IS a variety show with Kang Ho Dong, so it can't be too serious right...? if they play games under the theme of the books they choose it would make more sense, but it does say "talk show" eeeeh? i think the title is cheesy too. i hope it makes more sense after the show has aired.

idg these new talk/variety shows coming out. Joon and Kwanghee are supposed to be one that's like price is right meets match game? like they describe products and celebs have to guess how much they cost? like wtf? a banana costs $10 right?

Onew guesting on this show sounds awesome to me, i really want to know which are his favorite books!

+1000 ^.^
g_odalisque13 16th-Jan-2013 04:25 am (UTC)
this actually sounds really interestng!
plus, any opportunity for changmin to be snarky is always welcome!
dokyungsoo 16th-Jan-2013 04:57 am (UTC)
i've a hunch that changmin's going to talk about 1q84.
markthatcoin 16th-Jan-2013 05:10 am (UTC)
i love 1Q84 and can think of a ton of tie-in activities off the top of my head (playground, conservatory, self-defense, massage/spa).... but it's such a weird story it's hard to imagine it being discussed lol
boba_holic 16th-Jan-2013 05:04 am (UTC)
I'm kind of iffy about the premise, but if Changmin can showcase his snark in this show then I'm hooked.
asnindie 16th-Jan-2013 05:24 am (UTC)
They all need to choose Twilight, Team JACOB representing.

The investment part seemed abit iffy.
anconeous 16th-Jan-2013 06:42 am (UTC)
Tiffany would totally guest on this show bringing her copy of Twilight. LOL

She's unsurprisingly Team Edward though.

Now I see why Changmin was picked as an MC, he's always reading something new and he carries at least two physical books with him. This is definitely the type of show he could have input on and as long as he stays true to himself and his snark, that and he's working with Kang Ho Dong, it shall be pretty interesting.

jb from jj project said he likes murakami oh man can i find more idols like this
markthatcoin 16th-Jan-2013 06:50 am (UTC)

cagallisakura 16th-Jan-2013 08:14 am (UTC)
Tiffany with Twilight and Vampire Diaries LOL

Seohyun with her self help books, trying to change the world one person at a time.
asth77 16th-Jan-2013 08:41 am (UTC)
It's interesting but choosing all this ppl to talk about books??
well I have doubts...

I wish the show was subbed though, I want to discover Korean writers.
phonominal 16th-Jan-2013 09:19 am (UTC)
It would be interesting to hear about non-fiction topics in Korea or at least what guests have to say on it. Seems funny that most of the regular cast is related to the music industry too.
Definitely looking forward to more Changmin though :D
