KBS CoolFM's Kiss The Radio has continued to soar higher since it first arrived in April 2004. G.O.D's member, Danny Ahn, helmed the radio show as the first DJ and ran until August 2006.

After a few years, Kiss The Radio began focusing on K-pop, giving way to K-idols to host the radio show. With the members of Super Junior appearing on the show for a decade from 2006 to 2016, the show eventually became known as Sukira.

Meanwhile, Young K began hosting from November 2020 to October 2021, changing its name to Dekira.

As he needed to start serving the military, BTOB Minhyuk had been hailed as his successor, and he will show what he got beginning next month.

Multiple news outlets confirmed that Minhyuk would take over Young K permanently following his farewell episode due to his mandatory military enlistment.

Soon after starting his stint, the program will bear the name BTOB's Kiss The Radio. Minhyuk will welcome his co-member, Eunkwang as his first guest. After choosing the idol as the new host, KBC Radio issued a statement and revealed why they picked him.
