According to a statement made by "SNL Korea" on August 23, Seungri will be the main host for the September 7 broadcast of "SNL Korea." The originally scheduled model special will be postponed to September 14 due to a scheduling conflict.

A tvN rep said, "The September 7 episode has changed from a model special to Seungri. There's no other reason than the fact that there's been a scheduling conflict."

In this episode of "SNL Korea," fixed member Yoo Hee Yeol will be working with Seungri for the first skit. Yoo Hee Yeol will also be leading the "Weekend Update" corner on the show.

Seungri recently had a successful 2nd solo mini album comeback with Let's Talk About Love, and has been busy promoting his new songs.
