The 'NewJourney to the West' PD promised to keep the show running until Kyuhyun's return!
The director's cut was aired during the last episode of the 4th season on August 22, and fans got to see a bunch of never-before-scene footage. During one of the cuts, PD Na Young Seokwrote to Kyuhyun, "After you're discharged from the army, it's very likely that you will have lost your touch for variety shows. We will keep 'New Journey to the West' nice and well so you can make a fancy return. If it fails during the two years, we'll pretend none of this ever happened."
