    People don't seem to fully understand Ko Ji Yong's history fully. After Sechkies disbanded, he wanted to go into acting but DSP blocked his activities and at the time he was so young and got really hurt in the process to the point he didn't want anything to do with the entertainment sector. During Infinite Challenge they talked about how it took like five months to pursuade him and that he did it for the other members and the fans. In a recent interview he said half jokingly, by showing his face on tv people recognized him and he became a celebrity again weather or not he wanted it. He also said why wouldn't he want success for the other members, he is their #1 fan. Lastly, he said now that this was the outcome, if he can do something in the entertainment industry that wasn't going to distrupt his regular life then he would try it but his focus is on his business, wife and son. After Infinite Challenge he hasn't done any broadcasts, the only thing he was on the news for was for a basketball charity he was involved with so it's not like he went out searching for fame.  At this point he has had contract offers from both YG and JYP but hasn't signed. I think he is genuine and wish him the best.

    Does that mean one or more of the current family's is planning on leaving the show in the new year? There seems to be so many families on the show now. We have the twins, 5-siblings, SoDa siblings, Rohee, 3 Daughters/Team OGG (Joy, Seoheun, Haeun), and now William. I feel maybe SoDa siblings are going to leave because their dad is always off filming or promoting a project and doesn't seem to have much time for the show or maybe the twins since they are the only original members left it may be time for them to take their leave. I'll be sad to see any of the current family's take their leave since they are all so cute and entertaining to watch.

    Same..Boo... he didn't even appear on infinity challenge because he wanted to protect his privacy and wanted a normal life.. wanted nothing to do with Sechkies, and then now he's going on superman is back? Kind of ironic..

    He's not going to abandon his business for temporary fame. This show works around his existing work life. It makes perfect sense.

    Boo... He said he did not want to do Seckies and just wanted a normal life.  Now he is going to show that life off on TV and get paid for it?  He technically isn't even a celebrity now. It is one thing if he was doing Seckies and appeared on the show. It is another when he refused to join them even when they begged them, said he is out of the limelight, and then come on TV without the other 5.

    you make it seems like he refused to participate in any way. The guy even sang a couple of songs on stage. He couldnt join them bcs all the rehearsals would take a lot of time, and he has a full time job. superman returns wont take much of his time compared to rehearsing and rejoining the band.
