On the afternoon of January 27th, a SM Entertainment representative left a notice on Girls’ Generation’s official website, stating that the January 28th episode of MBC’s ‘Show! Music Core’ will be the last broadcast for MC Yuri, in order for her to focus on her solo activities. Inevitably, fans are sad to see Yuri’s departure from the weekly music program and the separation of the well-loved MC Yuri and Tiffany combo.
Yuri and Tiffany first co-hosted ‘Show! Music Core’ from April 4th, 2009 to July 31st, 2010, where they bid fans and audience goodbye as Girls’ Generation prepared for their advancement into the Japanese music industry. In the following year, the duo made their comeback as permanent hosts for the music show on October 15th, 2011, taking over the hosting reins from Suzy and Jiyeon. Besides that, the winning combo of Yuri and Tiffany also hosted many big-scale events such as the 2010 MBC Gayo Daejeon, 2011 Incheon Korean Music Wave, K-pop All Star Live in Niigata and many more.
Other than that, Yuri and Tiffany also received their first ever hosting award, as hosts of ‘Show! Music Core’ in the 2011 MBC Entertainment Awards on December 29th, 2011.
Meanwhile, Tiffany will continue hosting ‘Show! Music Core’ and her new co-host will be revealed soon, while Yuri will be focusing on her new role in drama ‘Fashion King’, which is scheduled for broadcast in March 2012.
Be sure to catch ‘Show! Music Core’ on January 28th to see the last broadcast for MC Yuri for now. All the best in future ventures, girls!

In the next episode of ‘Invincible Youth 2′, Hyoyeon revealed Sunny’s nickname to be ’60 Sunny’.
On the upcoming episode of ‘Invincible Youth 2′, as a ‘Lunar New Year Special’, the godfather of comedians, Im Ha-ryong, came as a special guest to teach the G8 members (Girls’ Generation’s Sunny and Hyoyeon, Miss A’s Suzy, Sistar’s Bora, f(x)’s Amber, Rainbow’s Woori, Jewelry’s Yewon and Kara’s Jiyoung) about traditional food and games.
According to the staff on set, in order to fit the festive mood of the Lunar New Year Im Ha-ryong prepared a quiz to test the girls about the three styles of traditional foods and their meanings, which consisted of herbal rice, rice mixed with five different types of beans and finally, nuts.
Since the age of the G8 members range from late teens to early 20s and were mainly brought up in the city, almost none of these girls had any memory of playing any traditional games or eating traditional foods. Solving the quiz itself was a challenging process for the girls.
However, there was one exception. Out of the eight girls, Sunny was able to easily answer most or nearly all of the questions in the quiz. Even Im Ha-ryong was surprised by Sunny’s knowledge and asked her, “Answer me honestly. How old are you really?”
Fellow Girls’ Generation member, Hyoyeon revealed, “Sunny’s nickname within our group is ’60 Sunny’. We call her this because, despite being born in 1989, Sunny’s actions and her knowledge of old and traditional facts just makes her seem like she was born in the 60s.”
Lee Soo-geun created laughter on set as he added on, “There’s a rumour that Sunny’s hair isn’t dyed and that it’s just her natural white hairs coming through.”
Also on the episode, Suzy dressed up and re-enacted Kang Hye-jung’s slightly mentally disabled character from the movie ‘Welcome to Dong Mak Gol’ in order to make Im Ha-ryong laugh to win the challenge.
This episode will be aired on January 28th at 11.05pm.
