IU to permanently withdraw from KBS’s “Immortal Song 2″ & Loen Entertainment explains the reason why IU left ‘Immortal Song 2′
IU has announced that she will be departing from KBS’s “Immortal Song 2” for good.
On June 6th, representatives confirmed through Star News, “The episode broadcast on the 4th will be her first and last, as she will be leaving the show.”
IU felt overwhelmed by her laden schedule, which included her MC duties for “Inkigayo” as well as other commitments to other shows like “Kim Yuna’s Kiss & Cry“. But her network appearances aren’t the only things on her schedule, as representatives continued to revealed, “IU will unfortunately be leaving the program in order to focus on her upcoming album, which is scheduled for release later this year.”
Taking her place will be SECRET’s main vocalist, Song Ji Eun. 2PM’s Junsu and F.T. Island’sHongki are also preparing to join the program as well in future episodes.
Recently, we revealed that IU was leaving KBS’s “Immortal Song 2“. Afterwards, rumors began accusing the star of poor sportsmanship, since IU landed last place in the show’s first episode.
To recap, IU sang Toy’s ‘Good Person‘ on June 4th’s broadcast, showing off her impressive vocals. However, she unexpectedly placed last after facing stiff competition from the other cast members.
As the rumors began to gain momentum, Loen Entertainment decided to clarify why IU would not be appearing in future episodes.
On June 6th, a representative stated, “‘Resignation’ does not seem to be the right word. IU agreed to make a guest appearance for a single episode from the start. It has nothing to do with her rank. Because she decided to appear as a guest, she can make another appearance in the program later on.”
IU is currently very busy MCingfor SBS’s “Inkigayo“, and she’s also participating on “Kim Yuna’s Kiss & Cry” as well. It’s being reported that IU flew to Japan to film a different program on June 6th.
IU wasn’t the only idol to withdraw from the show - Super Junior’s Yesung and SHINee’s Jonghyunhave also revealed that they too would be leaving the program. SECRET’s Jieun, 2PM’s Junsu, and FT Island’s Hongki will fill the void instead.
