BTS’ dance guru J-Hope is set to appear on the MBC audition program “Under Nineteen” as a dance tutor.

According to the program on Wednesday, the BTS member will feature on the show’s Saturday episode to share insights into dancing with young competitors, who will take on the mission of covering BTS’ megahit “Fake Love.”

J-Hope, originally a street dancer and often called BTS’ private choreographer for his dance skills, will offer advice and encouragement to the participants.

In a teaser image released by the show, J-Hope, clad in an all-black outfit, is seen flashing a big grin to participants. But when tutoring, he transforms into a serious coach as he guides a team.

“Under Nineteen” is an audition program for aspiring teenage K-pop idols, who compete in different categories -- vocals, rap and performance -- to form a K-pop idol group.

The program also features acts like Crush, hip-hop duo Dynamic Duo and Super Junior’s Eunhyuk as official tutors in the vocal, rap and performance sections, respectively.

EXO’s Kai will reportedly make a guest appearance as a dance tutor following the BTS member.

The program airs every Saturday at 6:25 p.m.
