There were originally 7 MCs but only 3 will remain after a complete overhaul of SBS Monday night talkshow, Ya Shim Man Man Season 2 announced today. The trio who will be leaving are Kim Jae Dong, Seo In Young and JunJin.
JunJin will now be left with MBC variety Infinity Challenge, MBC sitcom That Person Is Coming and also start the recording for his new album which will see daylight in March. JF Story Entertainment representing JunJin expressed, “Due to JunJin’s overseas commitments, it has led to scheduling conflicts with Ya Shim Man Man recording. So we are very sorry to the production team. JunJin’s departure is for him to concentrate on his new album recording.”
Seo In Young had already asked to leave the program beforehand and will be in America soon for a vacation. Although somewhat insignificant, Nic Khun was actually the first to leave the show last year. It’s however rumored that the main reason for their departure was because of budget constraints.
But the complete overhaul of the program even with their limited budget also see the entry of 2 new faces joining the existing MC team of Kang Ho Dong, Yoon Jong Shin and MC Mong. Actress Im Jung Eun and comedian Choi Yang Rak are the new additions to the team having cleared the show auditions. The existing segments on the show will also be changed with new ones.
The new program format with the new MC team will make their debut on 19th January. So next Monday, 12th January will be the last time you will see Kim Jae Dong, Seo In Young and JunJin as MCs on Ya Shim Man Man Season 2.
