MBC’s Sports Entertainment show The Witches (literal title) will now be available on the small screen.
MBC announced, “Originally released on digital platforms, The Witches is now organized on to the schedule of terrestrial and cable channels.”
The Witches is a sports variety show starring female entertainers and baseball players. As these baseball enthusiasts form a team, the show illustrates their growth. It is their baseball journey as they make a leap from “baseball you watch” to “baseball you play” in stadiums that are empty due to the COVID-19 situation.
Expected to play as the ace of the team, Bomi impressed the production crew by throwing a series of fastballs into the mitt. Even Kim Min Kyung, a first-timer in baseball, received impressive responses as she demonstrated a series of incredible ultra-long-distance hits.
Former rhythmic gymnast Shin Soo Ji, 12-year cheerleader Park Ki Ryang, MBC’s Sports Plus announcer Park Ji Young, and NC Dinos’ pitcher Kang Dong Yeon’s older sister Kang So Yeon are surprising the viewers with their talents. It is told that one particular member showed more potential than expected, as commentator Heo Gu Yeon said, “Someone who could have been the treasure of the baseball industry has been stolen by the entertainment industry.”
Comedian Park Sung Kwang and announcer Kim Hee Joo appeared as the members’ managers, as they eased the tension and stirred laughter. The Witches has sparked explosive attention through OTT, Wavve, and MBCkpop News on YouTube.
