During an interview with E Daily, Kim Jun Ho first said, "He was proven innocent, so I believe he will come back soon. I'm not sure how the producers and Jung Joon Young talked on this matter, but my thoughts about his return won't change."
He continued, "It was weird filming '1 Night 2 Days' with just 5 members. Jung Joon Young did well in his role as a maknae, so that emptiness was big. I also questioned myself saying, 'Is it ok for us to laugh and film like this?', and that thought became a heavy load [in my mind]."
After the recent filming without Jung Joon Young, Kim Jun Ho revealed that the members went to go visit him. Kim Jun Ho explained, "It seemed like Jung Joon Young was in great shock. He was acquitted, but I'm not sure if his condition is ok for broadcast. I think when he used the words, 'time of reflection', that also showed how many thoughts must be going through his mind. As a hyung, it worries me to think that he's been hurt mentally."
Currently, Jung Joon Young is taking a break from '1 Night 2 Days' as well as 'House Cook Master Baek'.
