Yoo Jae Suk Expresses His Gratitude for 10 Years with “Infinity Challenge”

Soompi - Fri, 04/24/2015 - 10:37

Since starting off as an MBC Saturday corner on April 23, 2005, “Infinity Challenge” has grown into a beloved national variety show staple, providing laughter and entertainment to viewers every Saturday night.

Today marks the program’s 10th birthday. In commemoration of the anniversary, head MC Yoo Jae Suk expresses his gratitude for those that supported the show through the years.

He shares with Star News, “Literally, I am so grateful. When we started off, we couldn’t fathom that 10 years later a day like this would come. I only realized because people around me said that it’s been 10 years, but I don’t even know how the time has passed.”

He laughs and continues, “I can’t believe it’s been 10 years. It might be because ‘Infinity Challenge’ in particular has gone through a lot. It’s something to be grateful to a lot of people for. If it wasn’t for the support of a lot of people, this day wouldn’t have come.”

Yoo Jae Suk makes sure to emphasize his gratitude to viewers, “This is something to be completely grateful to viewers for. I am always aware that this would not be possible without many people tuning in to watch us. I do communicate this on the broadcast from time to time, but it’s not just me but also the members and staff that always think this way. Going forward we will continue to work hard.”

Wrapping up the interview, he jokes, “Coincidentally there is filming today [for ‘Infinity Challenge’] [...] It’s been 10 years but I still don’t know what we’re doing today. They won’t tell us.”

Congratulations, “Infinity Challenge!”

Tao’s Father Says Tao Has Agreed to Leave EXO

Soompi - Fri, 04/24/2015 - 07:25

In an exclusive interview with Chinese media outlet Sina on April 23, Tao’s father said that his son has agreed to leave EXO.

“Ultimately, Tao agreed to leave [EXO]. My son’s treatment is the foremost priority. The rest is up for Tao to contemplate and decide,”  the father said.

Like in the heartfelt letter he wrote yesterday, Tao’s father emphasized that his request to SM Entertainment for Tao’s release is based on his concern for Tao’s health and rest, “Since his debut three years ago, Tao has participated in a lot of programs that have a high risk of injury. My heart hurts so much because his company [SM Entertainment] didn’t treat his injuries at the proper times.”

He continued, “When I visited Korea in order to take him back [to China] to get treatment, all of a sudden the company said, ‘Let’s talk about Tao’s future.’ It was during that discussion that [the proposal for] a personal workshop [for Tao] was brought up, and I was happy because I thought the company was finally acknowledging my son’s toils. But in the end that didn’t work out.

“My heart breaks, too, to have to make this decision on Tao’s departure. Tao loves music and the team [EXO]. Even though he couldn’t get proper treatment for his injuries, he was never once resentful. As a father, I can no longer watch my son getting up on stage injured.”
