It won’t be possible to see Kang Ho Dong on ’1 Night 2 Days’ any longer.
Starnews interviewed a high ranking official from KBS network channel on the 21st, “We tried to pursue a way for Kang Ho Dong to have a farewell episode with the members before he stepped down from the show for good. However, in consideration to the difficult situation that he’s in, we have decided to have him step down from the show without a farewell episode”.
The official continued, “Kang Ho Dong has led the show for over 4 years, we are truly regretful to have to let him go without a final goodbye. He has worked so hard for us for so many years, we wanted to do right by him”.
With the decision to scrap the farewell episode, the 5 other members Lee Soo Geun, Eun Ji Won, Uhm Tae Woong, Kim Jong Min, and Lee Seung Gi will proceed with the filming on the 23rd without Kang Ho Dong.
Kang Ho Dong will also step down from his other shows MBC’s ‘Knee Drop Guru’, SBS’ ‘Strong Heart’and ‘Starking’ without a farewell episode.

So sad because Kang Ho Dong career with “1N2D” for over 4 years will end like this. I’m sure many loyal fans are disappointed with this news but it has been decided, nothing we can do anymore. I just hope that the other members will do fine without their big brother 😦
