KBS’ Music Bank has announced that Park Bo Gum and Red Velvet’s Irene will be leaving the show as MC’s. Park Bo Gum and Irene, who have been MCs since May of 2015 for the past 13 months, have decided to leave 'Music Bank' due to their busy schedules. We have been discussing [their] leave after determining that it would be difficult for them to continue MC-ing on live broadcasts due to drama filmings, etc, and recently came to the final conclusion. We are currently in the process of selecting their replacement MCs."
