Broadcasts of Youn's Kitchen And More to BE DelayED Friday, April 28th

Due to the Presidential Debate

tvN will be postponing several of tomorrow’s programs due to the presidential debate on April 28th.

The drama “Chicago Typewriter” which usually airs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm will instead air both of this week’s episodes on Saturday. Episode seven will air on Saturday, April 29th at 7:50 pm and will be followed by episode eight right after.

Because tvN expects viewers to be watching the presidential debate, on Friday, April 28th, beginning at 6:50 pm, tvN will instead air edited, one hour episode versions of “Chicago Typewriter” for a marathon featuring episodes one through six.

The variety shows “Youn’s Kitchen” will instead air at 10PM (instead of 9:20 PM) and “The Time Travelling Man” will air at 11:40 PM (instead of 11:00 PM) . “SNL Korea Season 9” will air on Saturday April 29th at 10:30 PM. (instead of 9:20 pm)

I was shocked thinking they were cancelling the episode entirely.

I’m thankful that they’re not cancelling it. :,( I’m so grateful that they’re airing it tomorrow that I don’t mind waiting!!!

If they didn’t air Youn’s Kitchen, this week would have been really boring. Thanks for airing it!

Wow~ Chicago Typewriter marathon.

My Fridays are all about watching Chicago Typewriter and Youn’s Kitchen.

Shin Jung-hwan Signs with a New Agency

Plans to Return to the Entertainment Industry After Seven Years

TV personality Shin Jung-hwan (42) recently signed an exclusive contract with KOEN STARS which is a company that both manages celebrities and produces shows.

Shin Jung-hwan originally debuted in 1994 as part of Roo’ra and then joined Country Kko Kko with Tak Jae-hoon after his military discharge. He was a popular variety show staple due to his cynical and witty banter.

However, in June 2011, he was placed under house arrest for illegal gambling. Furthermore, he was investigated for fraud after taking money from an aspiring celebrity and failing to make good on his promise to help her get on TV.

Until last September, Shin Jung-hwa managed a shaved ice dessert store in Singapore and returned to Korea shortly after.

This will be his return after seven years due to his gambling scandal.

If this is true, he better prepare himself for a lot of hate . . .

If they announce they’re doing “God of Music 3” It’s 100% confirmed his returning.

Well, even host bar waiters are on tv . . .

Even so, I’m totally against Go Young-woo returning to the entertainment industry.

Honestly, I’m not a fan nor a hater, but not that long ago, he said he had no plans of returning.

Former host bar waiters, druggies, con men, criminals, delinquents, and rapists . . . the entertainment industry truly is an animal kingdom.

I think Oh Hyun-kyung was the prettiest of the Miss Korea winners.

What kind of combination is that?

She’s almost 50, but still really pretty.

It seems like Oh Hyun-kyung is having a tough time raising her kid alone. Cheer up and be happy ~ ^^
