Kang Ho Dong Denies Reports He Is Returning to SBS′ ′Star King′
Kang Ho Dong’s side has refuted initial media reports that have said the entertainer’s television comeback has been set.
Initial reports from various media outlets on September 5 had reported Kang Ho Dong had finalized his television comeback through SBS’ Star King this fall.
The reports had said Kang Ho Dong would return as MC to the variety show with MC Park Mi Sun and Boom remaining while Super Junior’s Leeteuk would depart from the show in time for him to enter his mandatory army duties.
However, the reports were denied by both SBS and Kang Ho Dong’s SM C&C with SBS saying, “We are still in discussion and nothing has been set yet. Just as much as the other broadcasting stations are contacting [Kang Ho Dong] we are in need of detailed adjustments. There are not enough concrete details set enough to say anything yet.”
SM C&C affirmed SBS’ words saying, “From early on we have been receiving and contemplating offers from all three of the major broadcasting stations. Of course, Star King is one of those programs. Nothing has been decided yet.”
Recently, Kang Ho Dong signed with SM C&C, cautiously signaling his imminent return to television after a long break.
