Following the news of TV personality Noh Hong Chul‘s DUI incident and his withdrawal from all variety shows, MBC has stepped forward to explain the future direction of “Infinity Challenge” and “I Live Alone.”
A representative of the shows revealed to TVReport on November 11, “Both programs have no plans of choosing someone to replace Noh Hong Chul. In the case of ‘I Live Alone,’ the decision has not been confirmed, but for the time being, there seem to be no plans of adding a new member. Negotiations are undergoing for appointing Kim Gwang Gyu as the narrator, which was the task of Noh Hong Chul.”
“Infinity Challenge” intends to continue with the five remaining members: Yoo Jae Suk, Park Myung Soo, Jung Joon Ha, Jung Hyung Don, and Haha.
In the early hours of November 8, Noh Hong Chul was stopped by the police for DUI. While he has admitted to driving under influence, the exact results of the blood test are still pending, and possible drunk driving charges have not been pressed.
