Changmin, the lead vocal of popular idol group 2AM, has achieved his dream of becoming a radio DJ.
A KBS representative stated on the 7th through Asian Economic News, "2AM's Changmin will be a new DJ beginning in the spring," and "He will take over from Suh Kyung Seok's Music Show, although the title of the program has not yet been determined."
Changmin is scheduled to take over on the 19th of this month as Cool FM(89.1MHz) DJ on afternoons from 2-4PM.
Changmin, whose group 2AM continues to earn explosive popularity through hit songs such as "I Can't Let You Go If I Die" and "I Did Wrong," expressed his long desire to become a radio DJ.
Known for his low, melodious voice which has captured the love of female fans, Changmin stood in as a DJ for Park Kyung Lim for 3 days on MBC's "On A Starry Night" at the end of last year, which was met with good reactions. He also gained recognition for his potential as a radio DJ through appearances on MBC's "Shindong and Kim Shin Young's Shim Shim Ta Pa" and "Kangin and Taeyeon's Close Friend."
The KBS radio representative stated, "We recognized Changmin's potential to be not only a singer but also as a radio DJ. We are very much looking forward [to his show]."
KBS is also expected to announce on the 12th that the new DJs of "Raise the Volume" will include not only Changmin, but also Narsha of "Brown Eyed Girls," Park Joon Hyung, Shim Hyun Seop, Joo Hyun Mi, and Lee Soo Young, who will take over in the spring.
