Joo Won to Leave “1 Night, 2 Days” Due to Schedule Issues


It looked like KBS’ veteran Sunday variety show, “1 Night, 2 Days” was finally getting back on its feet, with a string of great episodes in recent weeks. However, it looks like the show is going to be thrown a curve ball with an exclusive report from news media outlet “OSEN” revealing that Joo Won is expected to leave the show by the middle of this month.

According to an exclusive report published by OSEN, Joo Won is currently in discussions to leave “1 Night, 2 Day” in the immediate future, with his last recording expected to take place in the middle of October. The reason being given for this sudden decision is that Joo Won has been having a lot of issues due to scheduling clashes. No further details have yet been revealed as of publishing, but the news is bound to be disappointing for plenty of “1 Night, 2 Days” fans, who have come to expect Joo Won’s cuteness and liveliness on the show.

Joo Won is busy filming the currently airing KBS drama “Good Doctor” and practicing for his upcoming musical “Ghost.”

Joo Won joined “1 Night, 2 Days” as part of a complete program revamp in February of last year, which saw a complete change in staff and a revamp of the member line up.  The program has already gone through a member change since that time with Kim Seung Woo leaving the show to be replaced by actor Yoo Hae Jin. Given that “1 Night, 2 Day” members Uhm Tae Woong and Yoo Hae Jin also happen to be under the same agency as Joo Won, some have wondered if they will be leaving the show as well. However, according to the report, the two senior actors are expected to stay with the show.
