A flurry of updates had gone on throughout the day about the departure of Park Ye Jin and Lee Chun Hee from SBS Family Outing and their replacements (?), Park Shi Yeon and Park Hae Jin. As of now, there are conflicting reports everywhere and it looks like the Korean media are jumping the gun to get their reports out. Remember that variety shows were all cancelled over the weekend (continuing until 29th May)
As a mark of respect (for the death of veteran actress Yeo Woon Kye and former S.Korean president Roh Moo Hyun ) and because it’s not a good time for laughs, SBS will be cancelling most of its regular programming including Star King, Inkigayo, Family Outing, Gold Miss, etc this weekend. MBC will be doing likewise, with its Music Core and Infinity Challenge already cancelled this afternoon. KBS will also be canceling its variety programs on Sunday after getting criticism from all quarters for not cancelling its variety programs on Saturday. Special programs and movies will be aired instead.
and thus they were probably bored stiff, with nothing to write. But still, it looks like this will eventually become reality in the end. It’s inevitable when it comes to variety shows especially for actors but still sad to see it become reality.
Lee Chun Hee was also said to be leaving. But sources close to Chun Hee expressed, “Why would he leave? There’s no reason for him to leave now.”
Where does that leave Park Shi Yeon and Park Hae Jin then who were mentioned in numerous reports today as the possible new family members? Although SBS have denied that they were replacements and were only under consideration, they are probably prime candidates to step in should Ye Jin and Chun Hee leave eventually.
There’s no official SBS announcement yet, only BOF is saying that Ye Jin is leaving. But it takes two hands to clap and it’s probably a matter of time before everything’s confirmed. Ye Jin and Chun Hee’s future lies in acting afterall and I sincerely hope that they do well in their career. They certainly bought a lot of life to Family Outing.
