On June 22, Sandara Park posted photos to her Instagram of herself holding up a banner. The banner features her catchphrase from the show, “Everyone, we’re so glad you came today.” She writes as the caption to one photo in Korean, “Sugar Man.. I’m so glad you came into my life. I was so happy~ Thank you ㅠ.ㅠ See you again!!! ^_^.” She adds in English, “Good bye Sugarman.
“Sugar Man” is a performance competition show that features popular musicians covering classic hits by artists that have disappeared from the limelight. The original artists (or “Sugar Men”) are also invited on the show to perform and talk about what they’ve been up to in the years since their heyday.
Although the show was a hit, the producers recently decided to end its run, partially because they began to run out of candidates to appear as the “Sugar Men” and also because it was only intended to be a short-term project show. Their last filming was on June 22, and the final episode is slated to air in early July.
