On October 24, representatives of the new DJ survival program “WET! : World EDM Trend” shared, “B.I has been chosen as the MC for ‘WET!’ which premieres on Channel S and Wavve this coming November 30.”
“WET! : World EDM Trend” is a survival program where top DJs will compete against other labels for a grand prize of 100 million won (approximately $69,258).
The program producers commented, “As ‘WET!’ is a program that’s been produced to become the foundation of global expansion for Korean DJs to receive love beyond the country and internationally, musician B.I, who is an artist with overseas influence and a talented producer, has been appointed as MC.”
Aside from music promotions, this will be B.I’s return to television broadcasts in over three years after he first became involved in a drug case in 2019. Shortly after reports broke, B.I left iKON and in 2021, he was eventually sentenced to a four-year probation period for drug usage. Since October 2020, B.I has been releasing music under IOK Company‘s affiliate 131 Label.
On November 18, B.I will release his EP “Love or Loved Part.1” while “WET! : World EDM Trend” will premiere on November 30.
