Yura of Girl’s Day has been chosen as the female emcee alongside Super Junior’s Leeteuk for the 5th Gaon Chart K-pop Awards being held next month.

Yura has built some experience as an emcee at various events in the past, including MBC audition program “Super Idol” and Mnet’s MAMA Awards.

Her partner Leeteak is hosting the event two years in a row. Last year, he took to the stage with Hyeri, another member of Girl’s Day.

Gaon Chart K-pop Awards is one of the biggest music awards held annually in Korea hosted by online music chart website Gaon Chart. The organizers said award finalists are chosen based on data from the previous year’s year-end chart performance, such as album and song sales.
