Korean actor Yoon Sang-hyun [Asia Economic Daily]
Korean actor Yoon Sang-hyun is reportedly considering to appear in the new season of variety show "Family Outing", according to his agency MGB Entertainment.
An official at MGB told Asia Economic Daily over the phone Tuesday that Yoon has been asked to appear on the show's second season, but also explained that they were "baffled the news had been printed in the media".
"Yoon Sang-hyun is scheduled to work in Japan and looking into new projects so nothing has been set", the official said. "But he is discussing the matter on a positive note".
The entire cast from the first season of "Family", including the show's host Yoo Jae-suk and singer Lee Hyori, are set to leave the show.
Producers of "Family Outing", one of the most popular variety programs in Korea since its premiere in June 2008, announced yesterday that they will be ending the show's first season run with shooting of the final episode to take place on January 11.
The "reality-based" variety show has been suffering from controversy and declining ratings after one of the show's scripts were leaked on the Internet early last year. Fans became outraged when they found that the show was not "real" with many of the remarks and responses by the cast members pre-scripted.
Yoon debuted in 2005 in the SBS TV series "To Marry a Millionaire". He rose to fame last year after starring in the smash hit drama "My Wife is a Superwoman" alongside actress Kim Nam-joo and followed it up with "My Fair Lady", which co-starred Yoon Eun-hye.
The 36-year-old actor won the First Prize acting title at the year-end MBC Acting Awards last week.
