The cast of KBS2TV’s long-running variety show “1 Night, 2 Days” will be stopping by the United States next month!
Yoo Ho Jin, the producer of the show, revealed to TV Report, “We are set to leave for Los Angeles in mid-June, but have yet to decide on the itinerary of the trip. I believe everything will come together once we arrive in the United States.”
This upcoming visit to California will mark the first intercontinental trip in the eight-year history of “1 Night, 2 Days.” In the past, the show has paid short visits to nearby destinations in East Asia, such the Chinese side of Baekdu Mountain and Japan.
Regarding the filming schedule, the producer said, “As we are traveling to the United States, it is difficult to make it a one night trip. We will have to stay there for more than two days. I think we will know how much time we need once we actually go there.”
“1 Night, 2 Days” starring Kim Joo Hyuk, Kim Jun Ho, Defconn, Cha Tae Hyun, Kim Jong Min, and Jung Joon Young airs on Sundays.

In the December 21 broadcast of KBS 2TV’s variety show “1 Night 2 Days,” the cast, which consists of Kim Joo Hyuk, Kim Joon Ho, Cha Tae Hyun, Defconn, Kim Jong Min, and Jung Joon Young, head to Jeju for a year-end special. It is the first time that the season three team has been to Jeju.
Upon arrival, the members and staff of “1 Night 2 Days” were met with gusty winds, heavy snowfall, and even a hailstorm. Despite the miserable weather, the show proceeded as scheduled to Marado, an island off the south coast of Jeju.
In the stills released today, some of the cast members are pictured getting carried off in the back of a pickup truck in what looks like a snowstorm.
Viewers can anticipate all kinds of antics from the cast members (like donning wetsuits when a hailstorm hits at lunch time) in the upcoming episode as they attempt to fend off Mother Nature.
Actor Cha Tae Hyun has revealed that he would like to beat “Gag Concert” with “1 Night 2 Days” at the end-of-year award ceremonies.
Cha Tae Hyun said in the press conference held on December 10 at the KBS wedding hall about KBS 2TV‘s variety show “1 Night 2 Days,” that he recommends Kim Joon Ho again for Grand Prize (Daesang). He said, “I don’t think it would be a problem if Kim Joon Ho got the Daesang this year since the situation with ’1 Night 2 Days’ improved a lot, although there’s still ‘Superman Returns‘ [to beat].”
He added, “We finished filming last week. We filmed seven or eight different scenarios, ones in which we actually got the Grand Prize, one in which we didn’t, one in which we didn’t get nominated. Then there was one where Joon Ho gets the Grand Prize, one where we get the Grand Prize as a team, one where we are dejected because ‘Superman Returns’ gets the Grand Prize. And as such, we don’t feel too pressured.”
Also, he joked, “It’s a better situation than last year. Personally, I would like to get the Program Prize where the viewers vote for their favorite shows. I would like to beat ‘Gag Concert.’ Although it would be okay losing to ‘Superman Returns,’ I would like to beat ‘Gag Concert.’”
Meanwhile, “1 Night 2 Days” celebrated its first anniversary of its third season on December 1. With the addition of Kim Joo Hyuk, Kim Joon Ho, Cha Tae Hyun, Defcon, Kim Jong Min, Jung Joon Young, season three of “1 Night 2 Days” overcame the low ratings of the second season and currently has the highest rating of Sunday variety show programs.

Fed up with the production staff, the cast of ‘1 Night 2 Days‘ took matters into their own hands by abandoning the crew and hightailed it out of filming!
Stuck in a non-air conditioned car with spicy soup for lunch on a day where the temperature soared sky-high, the cast members were already cranky when they were given a mission which, upon successful completion, they could transfer into an air-conditioned vehicle.
Tasked with eating an entire tub of ice cream with only their hands, they were summarily disqualified when the producers pointed out that they still had some ice cream left on their fingers!

This was the final straw for the members, who ran away from the crew in their vehicle despite their pleas via radio! Although the staff car tried to chase them down, the cast members’ car were already far away beyond their sight.
Thankfully, they were eventually calmed and soon returned to the set!

Defconn suffered a slip and fall during the latest episode of ‘1 Night 2 Days‘.
Climbing a mountain with the rest of the cast and crew, the burden of a 20-kilogram backpack turned out to be a bit too much to bear for Defconn, who ended up slipping and hit his leg on a sharp rock.
The cameras showed blood running down from the wound, just an hour into the trip. “You need stitches. We should go to the hospital,” Kim Joo Hyuk said, worried about his well-being.
However, Defconn waved off any help, trudging forward.
Defconn was faced with a most difficult decision on the latest episode of ‘1 Night 2 Days‘!
On this week’s episode, the cast took a moment to rate themselves on how they’ve been doing so far. “He’s very driven and aggressive, but he’s also surprisingly thin-skinned,” Kim Jun Ho said about Defconn. “That’s because I’m blood type A,” Defconn defended.
“But you still say everything you want to,” Kim Jun Ho replied. “Yoo Jae Suk versus Kang Ho Dong!” he said quickly, prodding Defconn to choose between the two ‘nation’s MCs’.
Without hesitation, Defconn yelled, “Yoo Jae Suk!”
“But I really like Kang Ho Dong too,” he added seconds later, mindful of which show he was on, sending the cast into laughter.
On a recent broadcast of KBS 2TV‘s “I Live Alone,” Defconn stated that he thought that he looked like Robert Downey Jr while looking at an altered picture of himself. However, hold your horses, as the rapper made the comment in a joking manner after a dermatologist showed him a photoshopped version of his face.
The May 30 broadcast showed Defconn receiving a particular massage on his face to help loosen his muscles so that his face may appear slimmer. When he mentioned that his eyebrows made him look angrier, Defconn was shown a photoshopped image of how he would look if he had plastic surgery. After looking at his altered face, the rapper said, “My eyes like look like Dakota Fanning. I think I also kind of look like Robert Downy Jr.”
All joking aside, Defconn was definitely not laughing when he received the painful face massage, which in the end contributed in creating a slimmer face.
Defconn became the butt of a joke when his fellow ‘1 Night 2 Days‘ members couldn’t figure out what his real name was!
Although they all knew his first name – Dae Joon – they couldn’t figure out for the life of them what his surname was. Although there were numerous guesses – Kim Dae Joon, Jung Dae Joon, even Jae Gal Dae Joon – no one could figure it out! “You all only search for your own names,” Defconn said, disappointed.
It turned out that Defconn’s surname was actually Yoo! The members were surprised at this turn of events, and an annoyed Kim Joo Hyuk said, “What kind of a name is Defconn, anyway?”
It probably doesn’t help that he’s often called ‘Coni’ on his show, ‘Weekly Idol‘!
