It is now certain that Girls’ Generations’ Sunny and Yuri will not be showing up in Yuchi-Ri for the filming of KBS 2TV’s Invincible Youth from June onwards.
On May 14th, KBS staff confirmed in a phone conversation with mydaily that Sunny and Yuri will longer be featured on Invincible Youth starting June due to the fact that Girls’ Generation are set to enter Japanese market and also busy preparing for their First Asia Concert Tour. There have been speculation about their departure from the show since the announcement was made by KBS regarding the change of members, earlier this week.
Regarding the replacements, auditions are being carried out at the moment among girl groups to choose the new G7 members. The staff also confirmed that the rumor about Seonhwa from the group Secret leaving G7 is not true.
KBS Invincible Youth lovers will definitely miss Yuri’s dorkiness and Sunny’s aegyo and her bond with fellow G7 members such as Hyomin, HyunA and Hara. Poor Sunny as she will definitely miss her pet cow, Peureumi and also, poor Kim Tae Woo as he will be missing someone dearly!
