BTOB’s Yook Sungjae And Lee Sang Yoon To Leave “Master In The House”
On February 18, a media source reported that an entertainment industry representative had shared, “Lee Sang Yoon and Yook Sungjae are currently taking part in their final recording for ‘Master in the House’ at an island in South Jeolla Province.”
Following reports, a source from Yook Sungjae’s agency Cube Entertainment confirmed, “Yook Sungjae will be leaving ‘Master in the House’ with today’s recording being his last. Currently, Yook Sungjae is filming for the drama ‘Ssang Gap Pocha’ (romanized title), and he’s preparing for the release of his special album on March 2.”
A source from Lee Sang Yoon’s agency also confirmed his departure, adding that he will be focusing on acting.
Furthermore, SBS’s “Master in the House” released an official statement confirming Yook Sungjae and Lee Sang Yoon’s departure. The full statement is provided below.
The two brothers, who sincerely communicated with and gained wisdom from the countless number of masters they met until now, are met with new beginnings in the turning points of their lives. Rather than it being a departure, we will temporarily be saying a beautiful farewell in order to support the members who are opening new chapters in their lives. As there is still a lot of pre-recorded footage with ShinSangSeungHyungJae (a combination of all the members’ names) left until March, we would be grateful if viewers could look fondly upon the brothers’ stories.
Yook Sungjae and Lee Sang Yoon appeared on the first episode of “Master in the House” on December 31, 2017 along with Lee Seung Gi and Yang Se Hyung, and Yook Sungjae received the Excellence Award for variety shows at the 2018 SBS Entertainment Awards and the SNS Star Award for his role in “Master in the House” a year later at the 2019 SBS Entertainment Awards.
