SBS’s “Master in the House” has briefly commented on reports that Lee Seung Gi will not be joining Season 2.

On November 29, SPOTV News reported that after a long discussion, it had been decided that Lee Seung Gi would not be joining the upcoming second season of “Master in the House,” which was set to begin filming in mid-December with the other members except for Lee Seung Gi.

According to the news outlet, it had seemingly been deemed difficult for Lee Seung Gi to continue filming amid his ongoing dispute with his agency Hook Entertainment, as well as his busy filming schedule for his upcoming movie “Big Family” (literal translation).

In response to the report, a spokesperson for “Master in the House” clarified to YTN Star, “The production team plans to start filming with [the other] members while waiting for Lee Seung Gi.”

“The exact timing of Lee Seung Gi’s return is still undetermined,” they continued, “but the production team and the cast hope that everything will be resolved well and that Lee Seung Gi, who is currently going through a tough time, will return as soon as possible.”

Earlier this month, it was revealed that Lee Seung Gi had sent a certification of contents to his agency Hook Entertainment, asking for transparent disclosure of payment. Recently, the agency’s office building also underwent a search and seizure by the Severe Crime Investigation Division of the National Police Agency due to suspicion of embezzlement by some executives.

Following a Dispatch report claiming that Lee Seung Gi had received none of his digital music profits during his career, Lee Seung Gi’s legal representative added that the star had been insulted and threatened when he requested a breakdown of profit. Hook Entertainment denied the allegations, to which Lee Seung Gi’s side responded by claiming that Hook Entertainment’s statement was a lie.
