    After 2 years and 4 months, singer IU will be leaving SBS Inkigayo.

    When IU, who had MCing for Inkigayo since 2011, revealed on the 28th that it was her last day as an MC, her fellow two MCs, Hwang Kwanghee and Lee Hyunwoo, expressed their sadness.

    On that day IU started off by stating, "I remember having the new MC ceremony with B2ST's Lee Kikwang."

    When she was later asked about any memorable mistakes that she made she laughed saying, "I once said 'MCgayo' instead of 'Inkigayo'"

    When she was also asked which MCs she thought she was most compatible with, she replied, "Kara's Nicole and Hara stands out to me the most." Afterwards, when she was asked which MCs she thought she was least compatible with she jokingly started to say, "Hwang.." causing Hwang Kwanghee to be flustered.

    Kwanghee and Lee Hyunwoo had prepared special farewell gifts for IU. Using the word 'Inkigayo', Kwanghee had created an acrostic poem, "Inkigayo will, remember, the prettiest MC, this girl that's right here IU ". Lee Hyunwoo then gave her a scrapbook that contained pictures of IU throughout her 107 weeks.

    In other news, after being appointed as the replacement MC for CNBlue's Jung Yonghwa on March 2011, IU was able to MC with 2AM's Jokwon and f(x)'s Sulli. Afterwards, even though there were many changes in the MC line up, she had kept her position as the MC for 'Inkigayo' and had started to MC with Lee Hyunwoo and Kwanghee since last December.

    Thank you for the translation. I'm really sad. Since her drama is also ending soon. There's no other way to see her regularly anymore. Please come back soon with the new album.

    My Sundays won't be the same without seeing her in Inkigayo and anticipating what kind of costume she'll wear T-T I still can't believe that she's really leaving T-T But I guess this means she can focus more on her music and comeback ^^ I'm kinda sad and happy at the same time
    Thanks ~

    She was an MC for such a long time! I didn't even know since I don't watch music shows, I only watch performances. Too bad I missed her journey, but I'm glad she was able to grow with the show and build many memories!
