LeeSsang, Running Man, and Infinite Challenge fans can now take a sigh of relief as its been revealed that LeeSsang members Gary and Gil will be staying on their respective programs!
LeeSsang released this statement:
“Hello, all. This is Leessang. Firstly, we sincerely thank all of you who have made us more mature through your encouragement and scolding. We found it too difficult to withstand the names ‘Leessang’, which we’ve worked hard on for the past 10 years, and ‘Leessang Company’, which we’ve started with hopeful ambition, being [put in a negative light], and so we decided to leave the variety industry in order to focus more on our music and concerts. However, because of us, many people were getting hurt, and more than that, we didn’t want to burden our members, who’ve always been loyal and stayed beside us; though we’re ashamed and sorry, we’ll be returning to the programs. We’ll give more music, concerts, and laughs to everyone with a better attitude. Rather than asking you to trust us, we’ll work our hardest so you can. We’ll pay you back. -posted by Leessang (Gary & Gil).”
Due to a controversy about their Super 7 concert featuring the Infinite Challenge members, LeeSsang was forced to cancel the concert, and soon after announced that the members would be taking a hiatus from their variety show activities. Thankfully it has been resolved and LeeSsang has moved passed it.
Am I the only one literally jumping for joy right now? Variety just wouldn’t be the same without the fresh faces of LeeSsang!
