‘Healing Camp’ hosts to depart


Comedian-entertainer Lee Kyung-kyu, 54, and singer-turned-actress Sung Yu-ri, 34, are confirmed to be leaving reality program “Healing Camp,” which the two hosted alongside Kim Je-dong.

Even though the two have been deliberating on leaving the program over the past few months, they remained in their positions at the request of people affiliated with the program, according to a source close to the two celebrities.

Founding member Lee has been hosting the variety show since it began in 2011. Even though he has been busy with other programs such as “Take Care of My Dad” and “Family’s Dignity: Full House,” he has continued to host “Healing Camp.” However, according to Lee, it is time for him to step down and focus more on his other programs.

Sung, who joined the reality program after former host Han Hye-jin left, decided to leave because she wants to focus on her acting career. She has been working on the show for two years.

“Healing Camp” marks its fourth anniversary on July 18. Even though host Kim will remain, the program is expected to take a different approach with the two other hosts gone.
