The celebrity cast of “War of Teachers” (literal translation) has been confirmed.

The upcoming KBS Chuseok special will feature gugudan’s Nayoung, Lovelyz’s Soojung, Lee Ji Hye, Moon Se Yoon, and Oh Hyun Min as the celebrity panel.

“War of Teachers” is a competitive lecture show between the “masters of classes,” where famous lecturers battle it out as they teach the celebrity panel students. After each battle, the panel members will cast a vote for their favorite lecturer. The show will be hosted by Kim Sung Joo.

The show filmed on September 12, where the panel members eagerly listened to the lecturers. Lee Ji Hye commented, “All the teachers seem like celebrities. If we had a great program like this and teachers like this, I think I would have found studying more enjoyable.” Moon Se Yoon shared, “Famous lecturers these days don’t lose to idols in popularity. They have fan clubs, and their classes are like concerts.” He joked and added, “But the thing I envy the most about them are their free lunches.”

Nayoung remarked, “My parents told me they would let me be a singer if I got good grades, so when I was a trainee I studied really hard. I didn’t have time to attend any academies, so I got a lot of help through lectures on the Internet.”

A source from the production staff stated, “As ‘War of Teachers’ is about learning from classes with a celebrity panel, we will add a variety show-like fun so that it won’t be too stiff or boring. The panel members will show the process of having fun through studying, as well as share their thoughts and concerns. As they learn the solutions to these problems, they will gain a newfound charm to studying and finding tips in ‘War of Teachers.’ They will take on the role of conveying this to the students who study on their own.”

“War of Teachers” will air on September 24 at 11:10 p.m. KST.
