Why Jun Ji Hyun Turned Down an Appearance on ′Infinity Challenge′

Infinity Challenge producer Kim Tae Ho recently opened up on how Jun Ji Hyun turned down an offer to appear in the show and why. The answer was published in a webzine interview circulated within MBC.

He said in response to a question about Infinity Challenge′s guests that he "once asked Jun Ji Hyun to appear in Infinity Challenge."

He added, "She said she really wants to be on the show, but she added that as a fan, she believes the show is better when only the seven members are together without a guest. She said she didn′t want to break into their ranks."

Jun Ji Hyun is known to be a big fan of the show.

In an interview with enews held while she was promoting for The Thieves, she had said, "I watch Infinity Challenge with my husband every week" and "There probably aren′t any other programs that develop as much new content in Korea as Infinity Challenge."

She had also said back then that "the show shines brighter without any star guests" and "I′m scared I′ll ruin the show′s original colors."
