'Infinity Challenge' PD Kim Tae Ho put an end to rumors that former cast member Noh Hong Chul would be joining the show once again.

SEE ALSO: [Interview] Ask anything and everything: Let us know your questions for IN2IT!

On June 21, Kim Tae Ho said in an official statement, "As of now, Noh Hong Chul will not be joining 'Infinity Challenge'. We plan to continue 'Infinity Challenge' with 5 members." With Kwanghee away fulfilling his mandatory military service, many wondered if Noh Hong Chul would be returning.

As viewers might remember, Noh Hong Chul left the show and went on a hiatus following his DUI incident in 2014. 

Did you want to see Noh Hong Chul back on the show?

It does really feel that Jae Suk oppa is pushing very hard for him to go back but he should have thought about it before. He wanted Yang Se Hyung in the show and it won't work well having both him and Hong Chul..

im dissapointed in NHC for refusing to go back on the show that he left due to a minor mistake. You repented, it's over. Just come back. Stop acting like some kind of a martyr or a victim that feels he'll disappoint people if he comes back. The show needs you, the viewers want you back - come back.

miki96 hiroonakamura Thursday, June 22, 2017

He can't come back as long as Se Hyung is there. Their image is way too similar.. if both of them will be there, there will be serious fights.

i honestly dont think that this is a reason as to why he has chosen to say no. i mean, back when he was a member him and haha often had somewhat similar characters (in the same way that haha and sehyung have somewhat similar characters today)

I wish hyundon can return :(

They're doing just fine now. Please don't do anything stupid.

I think Noh Hong Chul taste the freedom after leaving IC and didn't want to go back to the pressure of Yoo Jae Suk, even the old members of IC are being pressured when their with YJS.

k_kid badjainna Wednesday, June 21, 2017

They're not pressured with YJS. Noh Hong Chul doesn't want to ruin the reputation of the show, he's even stated that in an interview. Jung Hyung Don is pressured about being funny on the show and making an impact and it has nothing to do with Yoo Jae Suk.

NoahL badjainna Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Yoo Jae Suk don't need to do anything they will also be pressured. Status class is on a different level. If they don't do something about it they're just another person on the street.

badjainna k_kid Wednesday, June 21, 2017

LOL! There's a lot of pressure if you're with YJS many of them are saying that, not only about inserting more effort at work but also you always on check not to do anything stupid that will ruin the reputation of the show just like NHC said. Look at the Wing Man of Kang Hodong they are all at ease that is why they are super funny coz they act natural at not forced to be funny not like YJS wing man.

badjainna NoahL Wednesday, June 21, 2017

I know, that is why the pressure if you're with YJS are greater than the pressure if you're with Hodong.

k_kid badjainna Thursday, June 22, 2017

He's just being a leader and that's not a bad thing. Kang Ho Dong is also known for taking charge as well.

People need to move on. As much as I loved Noh Hong Chul, Jung Hyung Don, and Gil, they just aren't coming back any time soon, if ever. I like the setup they have at the moment and hope they just have guests join them every once in a while to balance out any team games (3v3/2v2v2). I was never a fan of Kwanghee on the show, but I don't want them to find a temporary replacement like they did with Jun Jin for Ha-Ha. It wouldn't be fair to the replacement if/when they bring Kwanghee back.

hiroonakamura lmm913 Thursday, June 22, 2017

they could bring junjin back again haha.

rkshad Wednesday, June 21, 2017

"As of now", so you mean there's still a chance?

hiroonakamura rkshad Thursday, June 22, 2017

i think he meants "the status today is"

chiyasuho Wednesday, June 21, 2017

No so sad he was the reason I start to watch this show he was the reason im in love with this show he was the best one everything tht come out from his mouth made me laugh also maybe this is the reason why serect variety training arent aired anymore ? ?? :'( And alkpop still asking did you want  him to go back to show??? Of course -_-

ELF_L Wednesday, June 21, 2017

For now, 5 members is funny enough imo, they interact and bickering with each other. No one left behind.

Kurare Wednesday, June 21, 2017

I don't find this man funny. EVERYTHING he does (even his dumb laugh) is exaggerated. I'd rather them just randomly filling in RANDOM idols every few weeks (like they did with weekly idol) for them to get some screen time and get their names out there.

badjainna Kurare Wednesday, June 21, 2017

LOL NHC are 10x better than your so called random idols. This is IC this is not a playground for idols like Running Man. Ever since NHC left they became relax specially Park Myung So that is why he was labeled unfunny dead and no crazyman pushing them and do crazy things, most of their challenge became lame after he left. During the span of 3yrs after he left they hardly produce any memorable hardcore challenge not like when NHC were present.

Kjustice Kurare Wednesday, June 21, 2017

I think you haven't watch IC when you said something like that. It's understandable. You should watch their past eps when they still have NHC as member.

k_kid Kurare Wednesday, June 21, 2017

You have no idea what you're talking about. This isn't Running Man where they need guests. It's based purely on the members and the theme of each episode. And Noh Hong Chul is funny, so I don't know what you're talking about.

Kurare k_kid Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Can you not read? "**I** don't find him funny", I'm quite sure I have an exact idea what I think is funny and what is not. This was not a generalize statement, but a subjective one. Get an education first, since YOU have no idea what the YOU'RE talking about.

k_kid Kurare Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Someone's triggered.
