‘Infinity Challenge’ to Hold First Filming Without Noh Hong Chul This Week
MBC’s Infinity Challenge team will be holding the first filming session since Noh Hong Chul left the show.
According to a broadcasting affiliate, the five members of Infinity Challenge, namely Yoo Jae Suk, Park Myung Soo, Jung Hyung Don, Jung Joon Ha and Haha, will be filming Infinity Challenge on November 13. The Infinity Challenge team has been filming the show every Thursday.
An affiliate told Newsen, “Infinity Challenge will be filmed on November 13, as was scheduled. Details regarding filming has not been confirmed yet but we haven’t heard that the filming has been canceled.”
As the former member of Infinity Challenge, Noh Hong Chul was caught by the police while driving his Benz Smart Fortwo for about 20-30 meters on November 8. The police will be deciding on whether not he will get punished after National Forensic Service determines Noh Hong Chul’s exact Blood Alcohol Content.
After the report went out on the allegation of drunk driving, Noh Hong Chul expressed his desire to step off Infinity Challenge on November 8. Noh Jong Chul stated, “I will be taking some time for self-reflection. I would like to apologize to the viewers once more.”
Infinity Challenge accepted Noh Hong Chul’s request and released an official statement on his leave.
The production team of Infinity Challenge stated, “Noh Hong Chul deeply reflected and felt strongly responsible for this issue and expressed his desire to leave the program. After careful consideration, the production team decided to accept his will. Noh Hong Chul will be leaving a big empty spot but the five members and the production team will work harder.”
