Sung Yuri will be moving on from being an MC for SBS’ popular show, Healing Camp. Healing Camp is a South Korean talk show which began airing on July 18, 2011 on Monday nights at 11:15 pm KST on SBS. It is hosted by comedian Lee Kyung-kyu, broadcaster Kim Je-dong, and actress Sung Yu-ri.
The program is known to have created a new genre of talk shows focused on "healing", which have become the trend of talk shows in 2012 and 2013. Healing Camp is also known for its superior casting capabilities, inviting top actors and actresses, as well as politicians, athletes, and other influential people who are not easily seen on entertainment programs.
MC Lee Hwi Jae asked her how she felt at the end of the last filming, Sung Yuri answered, "I've really learned a lot [from being on the show]. As an actress, I've always wondered how best to express myself but through 'Healing Camp,' I learned how to listen more." The actress told Lee Kyung Kyu and Kim Jae Dong, "Thank you for guiding me," delivering her genuine gratitude at the fellow MCs during her short tenure on the show. She continued, "I'm thankful for getting to know these two people next to me, even though I knew them [before the show]," briefly placing her hands on her fellow hosts' knees, her eyes welling up with tears.
Sung Yuri further added, "I was moved by the production crew for trying so hard to give the viewers the healing that they deserve," showing her thanks towards the staff members.
Kim Jae Dong responded to Sung Yuri's parting message with, "We're really thankful towards Sun Yuri for taking Han Hye Jin's empty seat and overcoming that burden," returning the actress's sincerity with some genuine words of his own.
Sung Yuri is a South Korean actress and singer. She made her entertainment debut in 1998 as a member of the now-defunct K-pop group Fin.K.L.
