Jonghyun to join “Immortal Masterpiece 2”
SHINee Jonghyun, 2PM Junsu, CN Blue Jeong Yonghwa, and FT Island Lee Hongki will join the idol singers already cast in the KBS Immortal Masterpiece 2.
Kwon Jaeyoung PD said on the phone, “They cannot participate in the program from the first episode due to schedule conflicts, but their participation has been planned from the beginning.” The current line-up consists of 2AM Changmin, Sista Hyorin, Beast Yoseop, Miss A Min, Super Junior Yesung, and IU.
Kwon PD continued, “6 singers will compete in the program. According to the current plan, SHINee Jonghyun will join them in the 3rd episode that starts a new mission with the 2nd legend singer, 2PM Junsu in the 5th episode for another mission with the 3rd legend singer. But there is uncertainty because the program has no elimination. They will join the program when someone from the current line-up wants to leave for a schedule or personal reason.” There is room for uncertainty when Jonghyun, Junsu, Jeong Yonghwa, and Lee Hongki will join the program.
Kwon PD hinted they might introduce a more dramatic way of adding new contestants, adding that he is also considering a proceeding that the 3-time winner retires with honor.
Immortal Masterpiece 2 is a program in which idol singers sing an old hit song by a legendary singer in their own styles and the invited sunbae singer will select the winner. It will start filming on May 16 and be aired early June.
