Uhm, daughter to leave reality show
An industry insider from KBS, the broadcaster of the show, told Ilgan Sports, an affiliate of the Korea JoongAng Daily, on Wednesday that the two already finished shooting their last episode.
Uhm and his daughter joined the show in January, but the 41-year-old actor reportedly wanted to focus more on his acting career.
It is still undecided who will fill the void of Uhm.
Along with Uhm, other celebrity fathers like comedian Lee Hwi-jae and actor Song Il-kook appear on the prime-time show with their children.
Uhm began his acting career in 1997. He is one of the most prolific actors in Korea, with recent hits including the drama series “Valid Love” (2014) and films like “Cyrano Agency” (2010) and “Architecture 101” (2012).
Uhm is the younger brother of singer-actor Uhm Jung-hwa, who is often dubbed Korea’s answer to Madonna.
