IU, Super Junior’s Yesung, and SHINee’s Jonghyun will drop out of Immortal Song 2.
Kwon Jaeyoung PD said on 6 June, “IU, Yesung, and Jonghyun are leaving because of their busy schedules. IU will drop out after last episode, and Yesung and Jonghyun after the 3rd episode that is aired on 18 June.”
IU, Yesung, and Jonghyun will be replaced by Secret’s Song Jieun, 2PM’s Joonsu, and FT Island’s Lee Hongki.
Kwon PD added, “I’m sorry that we cannot show how the original members improve, but we think positively that this will give opportunities to more idol stars.”
