OH MY GIRL’s Arin and TXT’s Soobin used to MC together for Music Bank. They were known as the adorable “Ah Kong” pair!
Arin reprised her role as a special MC on September 1, 2023, to replace LE SSERAFIM’s Eunchae as she was unable to make it that day.
During a live stream after the special MC day, fans asked her about Soobin’s reaction to the news. He sent her a message after hearing that she would be an MC opposite Lee Chae Min.

When he heard that I was going to be a special MC, he told me to do worse than I did during Ah Kong. What should I do with him? He sent me, “Do worse than you did during Ah Kong, please.” I can’t believe it. He’s practically like a real younger brother now. A really funny younger brother.
Of course, Soobin would want the Ah Kong duo to be the best MCs at Music Bank! Although Arin did well with Lee Chae Min, fans still miss Ah Kong’s chemistry on stage.
