Robert Holley was supposed to appear in the upcoming episode of “Radio Star,” which is scheduled to air this Wednesday. An unfortunate incident occurred after we had already finished filming and editing [for the upcoming episode].
The production team will take into consideration the gravity of this matter, for which an investigation by the police is currently taking place, and how viewers feel about drug cases involving celebrities. Therefore, we will try our best to edit out the scenes that show and are related to Robert Holley as much as possible for viewers to comfortably enjoy the show. Thank you.
