Korean singer and TV personality MC Mong has said that the appeal of his new variety show "Haha Mong Show" is that it is "unfocused and messy."

"Haha Mong Show" is a new variety show starring singers Haha and MC Mong, known for their sense of humor as well as musical talent, as the main emcees.

"After the pilot broadcast on May 1, the most number of viewers said that the show was 'unfocused and messy,'" said MC Mong at the show's press conference, held at SBS Seoul office on Tuesday.

"So we thought about how to make it unmessy and focused but we figured that it means we should not talk and we should not be the show's emcees, hence we will try to use the ways we lack in this to approach viewers with something fresh and new.."

He asked for the viewers' support, saying " Please don't jump to conclusions even if we lack in some things and believe that we have potential."

MC Mong, whose real name is Shin Dong-hyun, made his debut in 1998 as a member of hip hop group People Crew.

He gained fame after appearing in popular sitcom "Nonstop 4" (MBC, 2003) and kicked off his solo career with the debut album "180 Degrees" (2004), which produced the smash hit single "Letter to You."

He has also made numerous TV show appearances, most notably as a regular cast member in KBS2 TV's popular reality-based variety show "1 Night 2 Days."

"Haha Mong Show" will premiere in Korea on July 4, with top Korean singer Lee Hyori featuring as the guest.
