Producers of 'Infinity Challenge' and agency FNC Entertainment responded to the rumors about Noh Hong Chul's return to the show.
Recently, 'Infinity Challenge' announced that they'll be taking a break for 7 weeks after the Lunar New Year holiday. Soon after, it was also reported that Kwanghee is scheduled to enlist in the military in the near future, possibly in February or March. Rumors about Noh Hong Chul's return to the show then started to surface.
On January 12, producers of 'Infinity Challenge' denied the rumors and stated, "We understand that many are waiting for Noh Hong Chul's return. We're also aware that many are convincing Noh Hong Chul to come back, but he himself has never expressed a desire to do so. There can be many changes following 'Infinity Challenge's break. We, too, hope the wishes turn into reality, but jumping to decisions can rather be harmful. We'll be grateful if the viewers can wait."
Noh Hong Chul's label, FNC Entertainment, also shared a comment, "Noh Hong Chul has never personally expressed a desire to return to 'Infinity Challenge'."
