A press release from M Resort (the hotel that the restaurant is in) stated:
"Following much success in opening Jayde Fuzion, executive chef Seonkyoung Longest will be moving on to pursue additional opportunities in the culinary industry."The restaurant will remain open and will keep the name Jayde Fuzion.
Seonkyoung posted a status on Facebook on February 24th which may be referring to her departure, that said:
"It never has been about money, it has been all about people and food. One day, the truth will speak out by itself. All I want is be happy and make people happy with what I've got. That's all. It's that simple."I reached out to Robert Irvine and Seonkyoung Longest to see if there was a reason for her departure, but I have yet to hear back. I will update this post if I do hear anything.
You may remember before the season started, I was skeptical about the prize of the show. I guess my skepticism was on target.
