Korean broadcaster KBS 2TV confirmed its host lineup -- consisting of KARA's Gu Ha-ra, Super Junior's Heechul, Sistar's Bora and EXID's Hani -- for upcoming fashion and beauty show "A Style for You."

Jooyeon, a former member of girl group After School, was dropped over preliminary talks in favor of the rookie group EXID singer.

As first reported by Kpop Herald, the upcoming show will "offer viewers beauty know-how and also take them through seasonal trends," according to a KBS2 spokesperson. The program will air from April, not March as first reported.

"The show will not just be your average introduction to news, but will showcase a globally interactive style show, reaching viewers all over the world," a representative for the media company said Monday.

"The program will see the four idol singers stripped-down, showing off their idiosyncratic characters and personal styles in the entertaining show."

"A Style for You" will incorporate day-to-day stories of the fashionable hosts together with varied missions and hands-on creative experiences.

Boy band Super Junior's Heechul, a regular on Korean variety programs, has been nicknamed a "four-dimensional star of galactic proportions" while girl group Sistar's Bora has been dubbed "athletic idol" in K-pop circles.
