Lee Dong Hwi CP (chief producer) of JTBC’s variety show “Please Take Care of My Refrigerator” opened up about the difficulties in replacing MC Jung Hyung Don.
He commented, “Jung Hyung Don did such a great job as an MC. I feel the pressure to find the replacement who can fill his shoes. It’s not easy to find a fill-in since I’m looking for a temporary MC one week at a time. The scheduling conflict is hard to work with.”
He added, “For now, we’re rotating the guest emcees and we hope for Jung Hyung Don’s speedy recovery. We’re expecting Jung Hyung Don to clarify his position as to whether he’ll return to the show or be absent long term. We’ll adjust accordingly.”
Comedian Jung Hyung Don has been an MC for the show “Please Take Care of My Refrigerator” alongside MC Kim Sung Joo. However, he made an announcement through his agency FNC Entertainment on November 12 to depart from all of his shows in order to receive treatment for anxiety disorder.
Jung Hyung Don is currently taking a hiatus from all of his shows including “Please Take Care of My Refrigerator,” MBC’s “Infinite Challenge,” MBC Every1′s “Weekly Idol,” and more.
