To the disappointment of fans of Epik High’s Tablo and his daughter Haru, it has been reported that they will soon be saying farewell to the KBS variety program “Superman Returns.”
The upcoming December 28 broadcast will be the father-daughter duo’s very last episode on the show. It is said that Tablo came down to this decision due to his music promotion schedules that conflicted with filming for “Superman Returns.”
In their place, actor Uhm Tae Woong and his daughter will be joining the families of Lee Hwi Jae, Chu Sung Hoon, and Song Il Gook on “Superman Returns.”
According to an industry insider on December 2, Uhm Tae Woong is expected to begin filming for the show this week. The insider revealed to Star News, “Uhm Tae Woong is scheduled to take part in the first shooting [of the show] this week, and will hit the airwaves soon.”
The actor tied the knot with his ballerina wife, Yoon Hye Jin, in January of 2013, and the couple welcomed their first child, Uhm Ji On, later that year in June. Cameras will soon be filming the father-daughter duo as they spend 48 hours together, and their first broadcast will air on January 4.
