Singer Choi Ye-na and actor Choi Sung-min will appear in “Family Mate.”
According to a report by X-Sports News on May 31st, Choi Ye-na will appear on MBC’s entertainment program “Family Mate” with her brother Choi Sung-min, an idol/actor from the group CO-ED and SPEED, to reveal their daily life. The broadcast date is still undecided. Choi Ye-na and Choi Sung-min are four years apart. Until now, they have been boasting their deep friendship on SNS and YouTube.
Choi Ye-na once said in a broadcast, “I’m on good terms with my brother. It was fun to go to the amusement park and play together with him. Both of us have no friends because we became trainees at quite a young age. We are each other’s best friends. We also filmed TikTok together and I learned how to dance from my brother.” The siblings are expected to show a unique brother and sister chemistry.
Choi Ye-na was active as a member of the project girl group IZ*ONE. She recently made a fresh start as a solo artist by releasing a mini-album in January. The album’s title track, “Smiley,” was a success. She is also doing well on entertainment programs such as “Girls High School Mystery Class” 1 and 2, “Idol Dictation Contest 2” and “Games of Blood.”
Choi Sung-min made his debut in 2010 as a member of the group CO-ED. In 2013, he worked as a member of the boy group SPEED and debuted as an actor through the KBS 2TV drama special “Chagall’s Birthday”. He appeared in “My Dear Cat,” “Love Is Coming,” “Drama Special-Legendary Shuttle,” and “School 2017.”
“Family Mate” is an observation entertainment show that shows the daily lives of family members living together, even if they like it or hate it. It is a full-fledged project to explore how siblings live together in the same house, which seems to be quite alike despite being in different households. The show airs every Tuesday at 9 p.m.
