To the disappointment of fans of the show, it has been reported that six cast members of JTBC’s global variety talk show “Abnormal Summit” will be making their exit.
According to an exclusive report by Newsen on June 20, a broadcast official revealed that a few big changes will be made to the show in time for its one-year anniversary, including member changes.
It is said that members Julian (Belgium), Robin (France), Takuya (Japan), Sujan (Nepal), Ilya (Russia), and Blair (Australia) have decided to step down from the show and took part in their last broadcast last week. Within the next few days, the MCs and remaining cast members are planning to carry out the first recording with a new format after implementing new changes.
Another source explained, “Ahead of the first anniversary this coming July 7, the producers and cast have exchanged opinions on upcoming changes and plans. As a result of the show’s reorganization, MCs Jeon Hyun Moo, Yoo Se Yoon, and Sung Si Kyung will remain as is, while six of the G12 members will be leaving.”
While Julian and Robin have stayed on the show as fixed members since its premiere on July 7 of last year, they will be saying their farewells after exactly one year. On the other hand, Sujan, Ilya, and Blair will be stepping down after just six months after joining in January of this year.
Are you sad to hear this news?
UPDATE: Takuya (Japan) will also be leaving the show.
