“1 Night, 2 Days” to Film in Los Angeles Next Month

“1 Night, 2 Days” to Film in Los Angeles Next Month

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.

Cha Tae Hyun Hopes “1 Night 2 Days” Beats “Gag Concert” at End-of-year Awards

Cha Tae Hyun Hopes “1 Night 2 Days” Beats “Gag Concert” at End-of-year Awards

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.

Cast of ‘1 Night 2 Days’ go rogue after abandoning the producing staff

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!
