TV celebrity Park Soo-jin (pictured) and singer Lizzy, a member of the K-pop girl group After School, are leaving the food show “Tasty Road” on O’live TV.
“Tasty Road” first hit the air in 2010 and is one of the longest-running TV food shows, introducing hip eateries in and around Seoul.
Park has been hosting the show from the very first episode, and Lizzy replaced her predecessor in January last year.
With the departure of Park and Lizzy, Ilgan Sports, an affiliate of the Korea JoongAng Daily, reported Wednesday that actress Kim Min-jung will replace Lizzy, while O’live TV is still looking for a replacement for Park.
Park debuted in the music scene in 2001 as a member of the now-defunct girl group Sugar. After the group broke up, Park took supporting roles in drama series, but she failed to impress drama fans with her acting.
Other than hosting “Tasty Road,” Park has been keeping a low profile, but her announcement of marriage to the Korean Wave actor Bae Yong-joon last May made big news in the entertainment scene.
