High probability that ’1 Night 2 Days’ will end soon

Kang Ho Dong‘s recent retirement has left everyone wondering if all four of his variety shows will be discontinued early.

Over the Chuseok holiday weekend even the production crew of the programs were curious about what the future would have in store for them.

Rumor has it that the first program to go will most likely be ‘1 Night 2 Days‘. Kang Ho Dong’s charisma has carried the show for over 4 years, and because of the attachment the members have for each other, they will probably quit together.

News has surfaced that the upcoming ’1 Night 2 Days’ recording on the 23rd will go as planned. PD Na Young Suk stated, “Whether the program will end early or whether we will add a new member, specific plans for the future have not yet been discussed. Next weeks recording will take place, but I am still not sure if Kang Ho Dong will be present for filming. Despite the bad news to the other members they said they wanted to gather courage and try hard, so it’ll be difficult to hastily conclude the program”.

He continued, “However, the original end of ’1 Night 2 Days’ is next year, but the members have the power to revoke and end the program earlier. The reason they might do so is to keep their loyalty to each other, if leader Kang Ho Dong leaves there is no reason to continue the show for 6 more months. The program starting and ending together with Kang Ho Dong at the helm will have special meaning, so it is highly likely it could end soon”.

SBS’s ‘Strong Heart’, ‘Star King’, and MBC’s ‘Golden Fishery’ are all faced with the same dire situation.

An official of SBS said, “Kang Ho Dong is an irreplaceable character. Fellow celebrities might feel burdened by his absence. However, even if ‘Strong Heart”s advertisement sales are at 90%, it’s hard to decide what to abolish and cancelling will not be an easy decision. That’s why there are lots of worries for the production team. With Lee Seung Gi‘s consent, we are under discussion on looking for ways for him to progress on the show alone”.

The official continued, “MBC ‘s ‘Golden Fishery’ has about two recordings left so they have a little bit of time to decide, but if the guru on ‘Golden Fishery’ leaves, do you think the program will really work? In particular, the guru was made through Kang Ho Dong’s character so there is no alternative. They fell into a problem with no solutions available”.

Kang Ho Dong’s tax evasion and recent retirement announcement has clearly affected the programs production teams, as well as the loyal fans who watch the shows. Stay tuned for up to date news on Kang Ho Dong. Let’s keep our heads up and support the national MC who has brought everyone laughter over the years!
