Actress Kim Hye-soo will be the next host of MBC's global issues program "W" from July 16, to succeed Choi Yoon-young.
The production team said that in a bid to make changes in the program as it marks its fifth anniversary, they found that Kim is interested in environmental and other global issues and an avid watcher of documentaries about them.
Kim's volunteer work in Nepal, where she distributed food and looked after children, was featured in "W" in November last year.
"I like the warm perspective on the world that 'W' has shown over the last five years," Kim said. "I feel very honored and happy to take part in current issues program since that has long been a dream. I'm going to take a cautious and serious approach to this work."
