Kim Seon-ho used to describe “2 Days 1 Night” as his family, but “2 Days 1 Night” cut him out mercilessly.
KBS 2TV’s “2 Days 1 Night” that aired on Oct 24th was hurriedly re-edited after the controversy over Kim Seon-ho’s private life. Earlier, Kim Seon-ho dropped out of “2 Days 1 Night” due to his ex-girlfriend’s revelation. Therefore, the production team had to erase Kim Seon-ho‘s traces in less than a week.
As a result, it was very clean. From the opening title, the production team sent out only five characters DinDin, Yeon Jung-hoon, Moon Se-yoon, Ravi and Kim Jong-min. Even though Kim Seon-ho took the first place in the photoshoot mission of the “1st Chunam Selection Contest” that began last week, the rest of the members’ results were revealed except for Kim Seon-ho‘s.
Kim Seon-ho‘s solo shots were nonexistent. The episode contained only his figure when standing behind the members or his silhouette caught in full shots from afar. His unique energetic voice also disappeared as if it had been muted. In addition, when Kim Seon-ho was at the end of the line, only his shoulders were slightly on the frame and he was relentlessly cut off from the screen.
As KBS‘s leading entertainment show, “2 Days 1 Night” has been responsible for the laughter of viewers on Sunday evenings for 14 years. Although there were many problems related to the cast, KBS did not put down this popular program.
On Dec 8th, 2019, rising star Kim Seon-ho joined Moon Se-yoon, Yeon Jung-hoon, DinDin, Ravi and Kim Jong-min to open a new season. In the beginning, the viewers criticized that the show was not hilarious anymore. However, the members improved gradually and brought a lot of laughter.
Meanwhile, Kim Seon-ho has established himself as a trending actor and led the popularity of “2 Days 1 Night”. As a result, the production team devised a win-win strategy, considering the filming location as well as his “Hometown Cha Cha Cha” schedules.
But an unexpected incident occurred. Kim Seon-ho‘s image was damaged by the revelation of his ex-girlfriend. As soon as the actor admitted and apologized for the controversy over his personal life, “2 Days 1 Night” announced the change in the cast. So, Kim Seon-ho dropped out of “2 Days 1 Night” in less than two years. Of course, this issue would not have happened if Kim Seon-ho had kept his private life clean. The viewers were also disappointed as the members pledged not to get into scandals and devoted their affection to “2 Days 1 Night”.
In an interview with OSEN earlier, when asked, “What is ‘2 Days 1 Night’ to Kim Seon-ho?”, he immediately answered “family”. However, “2 Days 1 Night” responded by relentlessly editing him out because of his mistakes. It was even more bitter to see that people liked it because the Oct 24th episode’s rating has risen.
