Everyone but Yoo Jaesuk leaves Happy Together

On September 12, a source from the show confirmed Park Myung Soo’s departure from the show, stating, “Park Myung Soo joined ‘Happy Together’ since season 3 in 2007 and will be leaving the show after spending 11 years on it.” Fellow host Uhm Hyun Kyung was also announced to leave the show alongside Park Myung Soo.

On September 15, the comedian uploaded a photo of the cast on his personal Instagram. In the caption, he stated, “Thank you so much, and it’s unfortunate after all the fun times. Please show lots of love for ‘Happy Together 4’ as well. Thank you to the staff that have been with me all this time and to the viewers. Thanks, Jae Suk. Fighting.”

Later, Jo Seho and Jeon Hyunmoo were also announced to leave.

the karaoke segment was kinda great :/ but for the love of god PLEASE ADD MORE WOMEN. Idrc who they add just make it more than 1. tired of these shows with one token woman on the panel who never gets to speak or when she does is then turned into the punchline of a joke.

i'm always perplexed at how many hosts are there in one korean variety show. seriously why do you need that many men in one show??? what purpose does it serve to have more than 3 men host in these shows together???
vintage_boom 17th-Sep-2018 03:21 pm (UTC)
I don't even know. I think Hello Counsellor's panel annoys me most like that many men shouldn't be giving people life advice.

Yes, Happy Together in particular makes me mad about this.

They used to have two male hosts and two female hosts. Then, they revamped the show and kicked the women out, adding even more male hosts in their place.From what I remember, they didn't discuss the female hosts leaving. I think they just kicked them out or something (I vaguely remember statements saying they didn't want to leave or something similar). When the format changed again they added Hyunkyung who barely added anything because she was so shy at first.

The show seems to have shifted a lot after the whole sauna concept, and maybe a lot behind the scenes in the reason. But, the show has potential and I'd like to see it stick around (with a little more balance).

Oh thank god. The evil is defeated
I want to see him paired up with an older female comedian and maybe one other comedian. Four hosts was too much

Yoo* JaeSuk could be running this whole shindig alone and I’d be a happy cat. As it is, I’m just glad for less Myungsoo and Seho in the world.

Mte. But since they probably won't do that, I hope they add more female hosts.

dose anyone like Seho? How does he keep getting work?
nana_the_dwarf 17th-Sep-2018 08:22 pm (UTC)
I really don't know how he even got to become an entertainer tbh. He is the dead weight of every show he is in.
modestgoddess79 17th-Sep-2018 08:32 pm (UTC)
he must have rich and well connected parents, or maybe he black mails everyone?

He was (or still is) on the same agency roster as Yoo Jaesuk I think their agent tacked seho on in contract renegotiations

Seho is under A9 Media while Yoo Jaesuk is under FNC. Do the two agencies have relations?
vintage_boom 17th-Sep-2018 09:41 pm (UTC)
My mistake!! I confused the discussion around the news that Jaesuk and Seho were doing a variety show together with them being on the same roster. god why do they like each other this much?! 3 shows together why?

A9 has a production arm that does a lot of variety

Great, PMS and JSH are the worst. They fucked up when they fired Park Mi Sun and Shin Bong Sun. And Jeon Hyun Moo feels so sleezy so I'm not a fan. I like Uhm Hyunkyung but she doesn't add much honestly. Add more women.

Also I thought the Karaoke segment was the most popular. I really like it (and actually am watching it rn lol).

Welp I guess we'll see how it goes

Not a fan of this show but with this huge line up departure and infinite challenge ending this year, it's like a reborn era of the decade-long variety shows. Im feel like Running Man was re-born last year and made the smart move of adding Jeon Somin.

Me too! I thought that was really cool, every celebrity had their own way of making even the most simple thing

of course kbs won't let go of yoo jaesuk lol he could do the show by himself because he already carry the whole thing.
