On the 16th, Edaily reported that, citing a broadcaster, Song Hae expressed his intention to leave the ‘National Singing Contest’. Although the production team has not decided to leave Song Hae, it is known that they are looking for a successor to the host, leaving many possibilities open.
Song Hae, who is 95 years old this year, was recently admitted to Asan Hospital in Seoul and is receiving treatment. She was hospitalized twice this year alone, following her last January. Fortunately, she is said to be not in critical condition. But as she’s now over 90, there are growing concerns about the condition of her body.
‘National Singing Contest’ has been recording studio for a long time since Corona 19, but recently resumed outdoor recording. If the proportion of outdoor recording increases in the future, the physical burden is expected to increase.
Song Hae debuted in 1955 with the Changgong Theater Company and has been active for 66 years. The ‘National Singing Contest’ has been running for 34 years from 1988 to the present.
