Rumors have it that Kim Hyun Joong is strongly considered for a lead role in the second season of KBS’s top weekend variety show, “1 Night & 2 Days.”
According to multiple insiders, the producers of “1N2D’s” second season have discussed the possibility of casting Kim Hyun Joong as one of its main hosts. Some reports say they’ve already sent the offer to Kim Hyun Joong’s agency.
“There are substantial rumors that Kim Hyun Joong is one of the top candidates to join the sequel to ‘1N2D.’ Some even say the show’s already in talks with Kim Hyun Joong for a possible role. But it’s such a sensitive and breaking news that everyone’s trying to be careful with what they say,” an industry source told local media.
The source continued, “We don’t think there’s anything confirmed yet. We’re guessing the production team only asked if he (Kim Hyun Joong) would be interested in the show.”
In response, Kim Hyun Joong’s agency said, “There was an offer to appear as a regular host on ‘1N2D,’ but we haven’t held any substantial talks yet.”
KBS “1N2D” is scheduled to end by February. The second season will have a new production team led by Choi Jae Hyung, who’s most famous for his baseball reality show, “Unbeatable Baseball Team.” Could Kim Hyun Joong be the answer to the void left by the former main MC Kang Ho Dong’s sudden departure?
