It’s official. SBS-R has tapped well-respected indie musician Jang Kiha (of The Faces) to fill the spot vacant by Seokhoon on Ten Ten Club at the end of this month. Jang Kiha is definitely a great choice for the job. I’ve seen his many music show appearances (like on Sketchbook) and have always enjoyed his honest and unique personality. It’s nice to see a musician of his caliber hosting radio shows. I also like the fact that he’ll be able to continue introducing indie and alternative music to the public, something that was important to Seokhoon during his one year on Ten Ten.
javabeans posted an artist profile on Jang Kiha back in 2009 along with a short translation of an interview by 10asia HERE.
Seokhoon’s last day on Ten Ten will be April 29th, Mr. Jang is set to debut on April 30th. Hopefully Seokhoon’s last day will be video-fed. I will definitely miss seeing/listening to him on the radio. Good luck to both, especially Seokhoon on his comeback.
