GIRLS’ GENERATION’s Taeyeon is set to host Mnet’s Queendom Season 2, the production team announced Tuesday, January 25.
“After making her successful debut in 2007 through the global girl group Girls’ Generation, Taeyeon became a musician who has kept her position as a top solo artist for 16 years in the music industry while being known as a reliable vocal queen with her diverse and rich musical world,” the issued statement read.
It continued: “Taeyeon is a representative musician who leads global K-pop, and she has a wide range of music fans at home and abroad. Above all, as a role model that junior girl groups want to emulate, we anticipate that she will provide a diverse role beyond just that of the program’s host.”
With this, the 32-year-old idol will start filming for the show next month.
According to Soompi, Queendom aired its first season in 2019, featuring a star-studded lineup of female idols facing off against one another in various competitions before culminating in a fierce ‘comeback battle.’
Park Com, AOA, MAMAMOO, Lovelyz, Oh My Girl, and (G)I-DLE were among its first season contestants.
Mnet also released spin-offs of the show due to its success in ratings, including Road to Kingdom and Kingdom: Legendary War, both featuring popular boy groups.
