Yuri Leaves MC Spot of ′Music Core′
Girls′ Generation′s Yuri stepped down from the hosting spot she long held in MBC′s Music Core.
On the live January 28 broadcast of Music Core, she said goodbye to her fans. Fellow member Tiffany, who was Yuri′s partner on the show, revealed that "Yuri will be leaving to start acting."
The two have been hosting the show since 2009, although their term was interrupted by a short break in 2010 after which they returned in October 2011. They hosted for four more months after their return, but as Yuri was recently cast in the drama Fashion King, she decided to leave again in order to concentrate more on her acting.
Yuri said her goodbyes, saying, "The show has grown on me, so I′m sorry I′ll be leaving, but goodbyes do lead to new encounters. Please cheer for me even though I′m not here." Tears welled up in her eyes, and Tiffany also had to swallow down her tears.
Fashion King will follow SBS′ History of Salaryman once it comes to a close. Yuri does have experience in acting, as she previously appeared with Sooyoung in the KBS2 sitcom Unstoppable Wedding.
