Mnet’s Kingdom: Legendary War cleared the air regarding Yunho’s role in the show.
In the official press release, Mnet stated, “SM Entertainment informed us that Yunho will voluntarily step aside from Kingdom: Legendary War recording until the police investigation results come out.”
“Mnet decided to proceed the filming with Changmin as the solo MC. Regarding the episodes that Yunho already finished filming, we will edit his parts and focus on his role as a host,” they added.
When Mnet announced the launch of Kingdom: Legendary War, TVXQ was chosen as the hosts and mentors.
However, Yunho was caught violating social distancing regulations while drinking with his friends. Later, Newsdesk reported that the bar Yunho visited was actually an illegal KTV bar, causing an uproar.
Meanwhile, Kingdom: Legendary War will premiere on April 1st.
