He's set to enter the boxing ring again next year. 

But for now Manny Pacquiao will be marking his return to television with a guest appearance on the popular Korean variety show, "Infinite Challenge." 

The episode featuring the world champion will air on December 30 (Korean time), according to Korean site Soompi

Taping for the special has already wrapped, with one of the other guests, comedian Choo Dae Yup, sharing a photo from the set with Pacquiao and Ryan Bang, who acted as Pacquiao's translator.

A rough translation of Choo Dae's caption by Soompi read: "I had a meaningful time thanks to the 'Infinite Challenge' members."

"I also noticed that Manny Pacquiao’s personality is as great worldwide [as his career]. Thank you Manny. And many thanks to Ryan Bang for interpreting for us despite his busy schedule."

"Infinite Challenge" is a popular variety show from MBC, which often pits the hosts and guests against silly and absurdly difficult challenges. The episode featuring Pacquiao was teased last week.
