    In collaboration with TheBlackLabel, the survival show broadcasted by Mnet called "I-LAND 2 N/α" has reached its second phase, with just 12 contestants making the cut from 24 girls. Throughout the first part, actor Song Kang, known for his famous roles in 'My Demon', 'Sweet Home', 'Nevertheless', and more, has been the storyteller, while Teddy, Taeyang, VVN, and 24 are the producers, along with Monika and Leejung Lee as the directors.

With this, he became the successor of Song Kang, who hosted the first part before going to the military. Seeing the young lad be part of the new survival show, the group's fans, called 'ZEROSE', were super excited to hear this news.
