On March 16th 'News at 9', on KBS1 revealed another co-conspirator in the ongoing Jung Joon-young scandal. Cha Tae-hyun, most famous for his appearances in the Sunday variety show '2 Days and 1 Night', has appeared in Jung Joon-young's phone logs participating in gambling on golf games.
Kim Joon-ho and a non-famous agency representative also appear in the conversations. Specific reference is made to gambling money that is to be returned at the golf club. The full context of the statements remains unclear.
Following the revelation, '2 Days and 1 Night' was immediately put on hiatus. The future fate of the program, as well as Cha Tae-hyun, remains unclear as his role investigation continues to unfold.
