Lee Seung-ki is not quitting “1 Night 2 Days”…Posted: February 16, 2011
With many rumors circulating about Lee Seung-ki no longer appearing in the popular KBS variety show, “1 Night 2 Days“, Lee Seung-ki officially confirmed that he will remain a part of the cast until the time comes for him to serve in the Korean military.
Na Young-suk PD of “1 Night 2 Days” stated, “Personally, I think that members can quit the show to better their careers. The same thing applies to Lee Seung-ki. We talked often about when he would quit the show. However, with Kim C and MC Mong leaving the show, we asked Lee Seung-ki to wait a little bit. Negotiations were going well with his management company when the news reports of him leaving the cast were published. Realistically, we just wanted Lee Seung-ki to wait a little bit until a new member joined the cast, but Lee Seung-ki decided to stay not just a couple more weeks but until the time comes for him to serve mandatory military service. I was so so thankful. Lee Seung-ki has a great love and adoration for the show. He loves being with the other members of the cast. He said that even if it’s hard, he will change his schedule around to keep starring in the show. He’s the type of person you can’t help but like.”
It’s hard to imagine “1 Night 2 Days” without Lee Seung-ki, but people also must realize that he is a singer, before a variety entertainment star. With the hectic filming schedules for “1 Night 2 Days” and “Strong Heart“, Lee Seung-ki has been having trouble finding time to work on a new album.
Fans will have to prepare themselves for Lee Seung-ki leaving the show because he eventually will.
