Noh Hong Chul opened up about possibly returning to MBC's 'Infinity Challenge'.

On March 17, Kwanghee enlisted in the military for his mandatory service. This means he's leaving broadcasts for about 2 years. This also means that 'Infinity Challenge' is again one member short. 

With this in mind, the talk about Noh Hong Chul coming back to the show resurfaced. Many netizens believe he's the ideal choice for the 6th member while some oppose the idea of having a ''criminal'' back on the show. Netizens are also recommending several other celebrities for the position such as Lee Kwang Soo, Super Junior's Heechul, Jun Hyun Moo, and former 'Infinity Challenge member Leessang's Gil

At the press conference for new JTBC variety show 'Jobs' on March 28, Noh Hong Chul was asked about 'Infinity Challenge'. He opened up and said, "I think a lot about 'Infinity Challenge'. It's a show that I adore and support. I'm very cautious about returning to the show because I left after making a big mistake." (Noh Hong Chul left 'Infinity Challenge' after a drunk driving incident.)

He continued, "There will be some people who'll favor [my return] because I've worked for a long time with the members and have great chemistry, but I'm afraid that some might find that predictability old. I'm worried about the tough decision on whether it'll be right for me to go back if I can or to let a new person make it more fulfilling and energetic. I can't give a definite answer."

Park Myung Soo, a current 'Infinity Challenge' member who's appearing on 'Jobs' with Noh Hong Chul, commented, "Noh Hong Chul is like my brother whom I can open up to about personal things. I don't want to pressure him but he used to say that he'll not come back and now it's different. If given more time and if things work out, I think it'll be good to work together again."

Who do you think should join 'Infinity Challenge' as the 6th new member?

He SHOULD come back!!! Yang Se Hyung is funny because he is obnoxious, his way of teasing is childlike, NHC thinks outside the box, his ideas are everywhere. YSH may be way too talkative but he cannot outsmart No Hong Chul. NHC is the real conman! hahahahaha their characters cannot overlap!

I can say almost as a fact, that Kwangsoo will not be taking that role, two people from the same program is OK, but if half the cast is crossover from Running Man, that gets to be problematic.

NHC needs to go back to IC and stop caring so much about what those small minded a-holes who label him a "criminal" think......bloody holier than thou, stand on high pedestal, nothing better to do in life haters who only knows how to judge others even when he has already been punished by the law.....Damn those haters who wanna punish him forever, NHC rocks and deserves to be back on IC!!!

The hing is tat if he'll come back he'll collide with Yang Se Hyung since they kind of have the same type of Humor while Yang Se Hyung is more rude,Hong Chul is more crazy.. so unless they'll remove Yang Se Hyung, I don't see it possible for Hong Chul to get back on the show.

*thing *that ;)

There's certain dynamics of IC that Lee Kwang Soo just doesn't match with. He shines in RM and I don't think he would fair so well in IC. Jun Hyun Moo just doesn't fit the concept, he's more of a talk show guy. Heechul fits with Kang Ho Dong's style of hosting. For me, personally, Noh Hong Chul, Gil, and Jung Hyung Don need to come back.
