OMG!!! What’s happening to 1N2D?!
Just very briefly (since I’m too shocked right now):
Nation’s MC Kang Ho Dong has expressed his intention to leave 1N2D to the production team.
It seems that he wants to leave while the program is still on top, and it’s time for new challenges. KBS is of course doing everything they can do persuade him to stay.
UPDATE #1: An official from KBS PR Department said, “We have not received any notice of Kang Ho Dong leaving 1N2D.”
UPDATE #2: KBS is currently holding an emergency meeting on HoDong’s departure plan. Someone from 1N2D said even the production team didn’t have a clear understanding of the situation.
UPDATE #3: HoDong’s MBC show ‘Knee-drop Guru’, which is usually recorded every Wednesday, has suddenly canceled its recording today.
UPDATE #4: A personnel from 1N2D cast’s side said that HoDong had mentioned to the other members about leaving the show. 😦
UPDATE #5: Netizens have started an online petition to oppose HoDong’s departure from 1N2D. Some articles are reporting that HoDong has been on 1N2D (and Knee-Drop Guru) without a contract, and he had expressed intention to leave since last year.
UPDATE #6: KBS Entertainment Bureau Chief said, “There was no emergency meeting. And we did not meet with Kang Ho Dong. We will get organized and deliver KBS’s official stance through the PR Department shortly. Please wait a little longer.”
UPDATE #7: ‘1 Night 2 Days’ PD denies rumors that Kang Ho Dong is leaving the show by allkpop
UPDATE #8: KBS announces official stance on Kang Ho Dong’s possible exit from ‘1 Night 2 Days’ by allkpop
