As the controversy involving "Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha" actor Kim Seon Ho gets bigger and has been a hot topic in various online communities these past few days, the shows and other existing projects of the male celebrity have been put on hold.
Aside from dramas, Kim Seon Ho is also active in doing variety shows. In fact he became a regular member of KBS "2 Nights & Night" season 4 along with Ravi, DinDin, Yeon Jung Hoon, Moon Se Yoon, and Kim Jong Min.

K-netizens also showed concerns that "2 Days & 1 Night" might end the current season again, just like what happened in season 3.
