On October 1, TV Chosun's beloved music variety program 'Romantic Call Center' bid viewers goodbye as it wrapped up.
'Romantic Call Center' is a music variety centered around the top 6 contestants of TV Chosun's 'Mister Trot'. Each episode, the top 6 trot singers answered the calls of fans all around the nation by singing songs requested by viewers. The singers also put on group and unit stages, and also invited guests to compete against them to see who could earn the better karaoke score.
The program was loved by elderly viewers all across Korea, as they had a chance to hear the top 6 perform timeless classic Korean trot or ballad songs. However, the program has now come to an end after approximately a year, with the 1-year contract signed by the top 6 'Mister Trot' contestants with TV Chosun having expired.
During the October 1 finale of 'Romantic Call Center', viewers were particularly shocked by how much the youngest top 6 member of 'Mister Trot', Jung Dong Won, had grown in a span of a little over a year! On this last episode, the top 6 contestants recreated all of the stages they performed during episode 1 from start to finish. As a result, you can compare how Jung Dong Won has changed since the first episode of 'Romantic Call Center', until now.
