On May 8, JTBC stated that celebrity chef Choi Hyun Suk would be stepping down from his position on their cooking variety show “Please Take Care of My Refrigerator.”
“After two years and five months he has decided to step down,” the source said. “He is leaving so that he can focus on new challenges and experiences. He plans to focus on his newly opened restaurant and business. We at JTBC will support his new beginning.” The source went on to say that the chef had completed his last recording.
“Please Take Care of My Refrigerator,” a show in which celebrity chefs make dishes in 15 minutes with the contents of celebrity guests’ own refrigerators, started broadcasting in November 2014. Choi Hyun Suk was one of the original celebrity chefs on the show and garnered a lot of attention for his “show-off” style of cooking.
