On January 15th, it was reported that actor Jang Geun Suk would not be a part of the second season of the variety show "Three Meals a Day", due to his tax evasion scandal.

The producers of the show announced, "On Wednesday, news reports on Jan Geun Suk's tax evasion were released. When the producers checked with the agency, they said that it wasn't done intentionally and, because he had already paid the fine, the actor had no legal obligation in the issue.

The producers then continued on to say, "There are still follow-up reports on the matter and our viewers have raised concerns about his appearance on the show. The producers decided that this was not the most suitable time for Jang Geun Suk to be on air and, after discussing with his agency, we came to a mutual agreement that he should drop out." 

The producers then stated that they would be editing out Jang Geun Suk's pre-filmed appearances on the show. They explained, "From now on, the broadcasting will shift its main focus onto Yoo Hae Jin and Cha Seung Won. In terms of the filmed portions, we will be editing out Jang Geun Suk's portion as much as possible." 

The producers of the show also stated that there would be a slight delay in the program premiere due to the extra time needed to edit the original episode. Instead of the original airing date set for January 15th, the first episode will now be aired on January 23rd.

In the meantime, the producers of the variety show have also publicy expressed their regret regarding the incident, and wished to let their viewers know that they hoped to provide a very interesting and motivating episode next week.
