We reported earlier today that KBS will be abolishing it's variety program, Sweet Night due to a poor reception and as part of it's spring reorganization plans. The official statement from KBS stated, "As part of our spring reorganization for April, we will be introducing new programs that will be of interest to our viewers. With the entry of new programs, it's inevitable that old programs will be abolished to make way for them." Happy Birthday, which had it's pilot episode on March 14th has been announced to be the replacement for Sweet Night. Besides Sweet Night which has been confirmed for the chop, there are speculation that the fate for Chitchat of Beauties hangs in the balance. The program has been really popular with Korean viewers which introduced the perspectives and opinions of foreigners living in Korea. But the "short guys are losers" controversy in November 2009 damaged the program greatly and it has never quite recovered since despite changing the entire production team and format. The speculation was confirmed by a KBS representative who expressed, "We boldly tried to change the show but it didn't work. So now we're pondering whether or not to completely abolish the show or to consider switching things up."
