Previously, “Wit guy” Kim Dong Wan temporarily left his group’s variety program show “Shinhwa Broadcast” because of conflicting schedules with his drama “Cheer up Mr. Kim.” Now it seems that his absence will be more permanent with his official department from the second season of “Shinhwa Broadcast” being announced.
His agency, Live Works Company, elaborated, “Kim Dong Wan obtained his members and the production team’s understanding. Right now, Kim Dong Wan is going back and forth as an actor and as a member of Shinhwa. As such, he judged that it would be too difficult physically and mentally to make fixed appearances on variety shows.”
The agency added, “Kim Dong Wan feels very apologetic towards his members and fans who waited for ‘Shinhwa Broadcast.’ While he is leaving ‘Shinhwa Broadcast,’ he will be focusing hard on the preparation for Shinhwa’s 12th album comeback.”
In the meantime, Kim Dong Wan will be performing in the musical “The Man Who Walked through Walls” from November 13 of this year to January 26 of the next in the lead role.
