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!
