Lee Jin Ho claimed, “SBS wants Lee Seung Gi. However, Lee Seung Gi is hesitant to join”. Lee Seung Gi plays the central role in “Master In the House”, and the cast members also decided to appear in Season 2 after hearing Lee Seung Gi would be with them.

He explained, “HOOK is one of the production companies of ‘Master in the House’. Therefore, it’s like a table prepared by Kwon Jin Young”, adding “According to the data I got, HOOK and SBS have joined hands to co-produce 4 programs, including ‘Master in the House’, ‘Little Forest’, ‘Golf Battle: Birdie Buddies’ and ‘Circle House’. This information was not disclosed but insiders already knew about it.”

The Youtuber continued, “There is no way that Lee Seung Gi didn’t know. In order to completely cut his relationship with HOOK, he has no choice but to draw a line and refrain from appearing on ‘Master In The House’”.

Why did SBS co-produce so many programs with HOOK? According to Lee Jin Ho, it was also because of CEO Kwon Jin Young’s great influence. Lee Jin Ho said, “A high-ranking executive of SBS’s entertainment department had a strong relationship with CEO Kwon. Apart from their business relationship, the two are actually close friends. Therefore, many projects were naturally co-produced”. He continued, “Lee Seung Gi can’t unilaterally refuse to appear on ‘Master in the House’. From his position, he is certainly very upset”, adding “As far as I know, Lee Seung Gi is hesitant. However, the production team is leaving all possibilities open and only waiting for Lee Seung Gi to come.”
