Kim Hyun Joong to Drop Out of “Barefoot Friends” Due to Upcoming Drama Filming Schedule

Kim Hyun Joong has announced his departure from the variety program “Barefoot Friends.”

On October 31, Key East reps spoke with TV Report and said, “Due to scheduling conflicts with Kim Hyun Joong’s drama, he will need to step down from SBS’ ‘Barefoot Friends.’ He recently finished his last filming for the show.”

In order to film for the upcoming KBS drama, “Age of Feeling” (or “Inspiring Generation“), Kim Hyun Joong will be leaving for China in November so it would be hard for him to film “Barefoot Friends” at the same time. After discussing it with the variety show’s production team, it was decided that he would drop out.

Key East also added, “The filming for ‘Barefoot Friends’ that took place on October 27 was Kim Hyun Joong’s last one,” and “He is preparing to show better sides of himself through the upcoming drama.”

Meanwhile, it is reported that Kim Hyun Joong’s successor for “Barefoot Friends” has not yet been decided. Other than Kim Hyun Joong, Yoon Shi Yoon and Uee are also about to start new dramas, which has created talk about them leaving the show as well.

Considering he's the MAIN reason I watch Barefoot Friends, plus the likelihood of the other reason I watch it leaving (that would be Yoon Shi Yoon) - I probably will not watch it too much anymore.  I really like the interaction of the entire cast and have become a fan of Uee & Eun Ji Won so will continue to watch it sometimes
