Yu-ri of Girls' Generation will host Korea's first rally car show.
The singer told reporters how excited she is for the opportunity during a press event for the show on Wednesday.
"I like sports that involve speed, and I was also curious about the idea of finding Korea's first rally car driver. I readily accepted the offer," Yu-ri said.
Although it is still unfamiliar in Korea, rallying is a very popular motorsport around the world.
"The Rallyist" will test contestants in various survival missions to gauge their ability and potential. The winner will become Korea's first rally car driver.
A total of 4,986 people applied since May. The show will air every Saturday night from this weekend and run for 10 episodes.
