It was a happy day when it was announced that Jung Hyung-don would be returning to the hit variety show "Weekly Idol", but unfortunately it also means the departure of EXID's Hani and Super Junior's Heechul as the program's temporary MCs.

In response to the news of Hyung-don's return and their departure, both Hani and Heechul took to Instagram to express their thanks and to share some thoughts about their time as "Weekly Idol" MCs. 

Here's a translation of Hani's comments:

"I was happy the past 6 months receiving much love from the two oppas. I hope 'Weekly Idol' with Hyung Don oppa's return remains at its position for longer and also receives more love. I appreciate everyone who allowed me to create so many happy memories."

As for Heechul, he posted up the same picture as Hani, along with his own thoughts:

Here's a translation of Heechul's comments:

"Finally, Hyung Don hyung is coming back. As we have promised in the beginning, the youngest one and I will return to our original positions. Hyung Don hyung and Defconn hyung will once again create legendary 'Weekly Idol'. Also, I felt how amazing 'Weekly Idol' is even more as there aren't many programs for idols nowadays. Out of all, I think it's a very precious program because fans love seeing idol members being cute together. (I was too once the 'President of Elementary Students.' Oh, those years....). In the past, there were many, such as 'X-Man', 'Sponge', 'Youth Club', 'Love Letter', 'Six Heroines', 'Star Golden Bell', and more.. haha I am such an old person..... Well, our Hyung Don hyung. I hope you always be happy and healthy from now on. Goodbye now!! I'm leaving with good memories." 

We'll really miss Heechul and Hani as "Weekly Idol" MCs, but hopefully they will be back on the show in one way or another!
