On July 28, comedian Jung Hyung Don announced his final decision to permanently leave 'Infinity Challenge'. The unfortunate news of course accompanied many speculations about whether or not the comedian would be departing from 'Weekly Idol' as well.


In response, FNC Entertainment told Herald Corp on July 29, "We have not yet discussed his permanent departure from 'Weekly Idol'. As of now, the decision was made only for 'Infinity Challenge'. It's a bit too early to consider returning to any broadcasts. His health is first and foremost. He will look into his return to broadcasts once he decides to."

    What are his health issues? Did they disclose it? This is sad news. Weekly Idol will never gonna be the same without him.

    He has severe anxiety disorder, which for someone having been in the spotlight for so long, is pretty nuts. Hyung don was the reason I started watching Weekly Idol, I hope they're able to keep him. But of course, I hope he is able to be healthy first and foremost.

    is he seeking medical help for this, from psychologists? coz really that's the only effective and best way to fix anxiety disorders. I hope he isnt just spending time away from everything, secluding himself from reality and thinking that will help. It won't

    It's korea. They think a bunch of mountain weeds and bitter drinks will cure any ailment.
