Law of the Jungle crew is heading to Ulleungdo and Dokdo. And in the lineup, EXO’s Chanyeol is included. But it seems like the news is not really welcomed by netizens.
SBS announced that Kim Byun Man and 11 cast members joined the cast lineup to explore Ulleungdo and Dokdo islands. They even stated that Kim Byung Man successfully carried out an underwater investigation around Dokdo island for the first time in the Korean entertainment show history, raising much anticipation.
Kim Byung Man shared, “This was my first time visiting Dokdo and Ulleungdo. I felt slightly emotional when I saw Ulleungdo, but I was speechless when I saw Dokdo. I got so emotional that I can’t fully express it in words even now. Underwater was even more amazing. I am just proud that we (our country) have such an island.”
For this upcoming season, Ulleung County ambassador Park Soo Hong, world-famous Korean cuisine specialist Lee Jong Kook, Oh Jong Hyuk, actors Song Jin Woo and Lee Sang Yi, and Oh My Girl’s Arin jumped on board. The second team will consist of comedian Park Mi Sun, artist Gary, actress Go Joon Hee, entertainer Julien Kang, and EXO’s Chanyeol.
However, as soon as the news was released, netizens showed negative reactions to Chanyeol’s appearance. In the viewers’ bulletin board, a slew of comments demanding the production team to cut out Chanyeol were posted. Now, the netizens have divided into two groups and started to debate whether Chanyeol’s “comeback” after the controversy is too early or not.
