“1N2D” Season 2 Bids a Tearful Farewell and Releases Teaser for Season 3


The time has come to say good bye to the members of “1N2D” Season 2 as the show wrapped up its last episode. The closing statements were filled with tears, hugs, thankfulness, and a trip down memory lane.

On November 24, KBS’ variety program “1N2D” officially wrapped up season two with a final goodbye from the members. Similar to the show’s signature opening in which the members gather together to introduce the episode, it was fitting to see the members gather one last time to bid farewell to its audience.

The closing statements revealed how the cast and crew of “1N2D” had formed a bond similar to that of a family. Oldest member Yoo Hae Jin expressed, “It has been eight months (since I joined) and the experiences have been wonderful. I now have great younger friends. I’m thankful to the younger friends for their help, and all the staff have worked very hard.”

When listening to Yoo Hae Jin’s comment, Uhm Tae Woong couldn’t help but explode in tears even before his turn. The actor stated, “I want to thank everyone because I feel that I have received an overflow of love, and I will never forget. Everyone, please quickly forget about me and anticipate the new ‘1N2D.’”


Cha Tae Hyun, who plans to return for season three, said, “Choi Jae Hyung PD comes to mind, as well as Seung Woo hyung (Lee Seung Woo). Please anticipate season three.” Singer Sung Shi Kyung also added his sentiments when he said, “I started the show after being touched when I experienced the ‘viewer tour.’ The program is a show that you oddly grow affectionate towards. Season three will start, but I think ‘1N2D’ is the best program as a KBS weekend variety show.”


Having been with the show since its first broadcast in August 2007, Kim Jong Min, who also plans to return for season three, couldn’t help the tears as he stated, “I first came here in my mid 20’s. Thinking about it, I think I really love ‘1N2D.’ However, there is something I love more than ‘1N2D,’ and that’s Soo Geun hyung. “

In response, Lee Soo Geun, another original member since the show’s first broadcast, gave a 90 degree bow and expressed in his tearful farewell, “Although my body may not be present, my heart will always be here shouting and being together with you.”

“1N2D” first aired six years ago on August 5, 2007 with members Kang Ho Dong, Noh Hong Chul, Eun Ji Won, Lee Soo Geun, and Kim Jong Min. However, the show reached its highest popularity with members Kang Ho Dong, Eun Ji Won, Lee Soo Geun, MC Mong, Lee Seung Gi, Kim C, and Kim Jong Min. Season two of “1N2D” first aired on March 4, 2012 with members Lee Soo Geun, Kim Jong Min, Uhm Tae Woong, Cha Tae Hyun, Kim Seung Woo, Sung Shi Kyung, and Joo Won.  Along with the changing members of the show, “1N2D” will also experience a change in production team as season three is expected to be produced under a different producer and staff team.


Season three of “1N2D” will consist of returning members Cha Tae Hyun and Kim Jong Min, as well as new members Kim Joon Ho, Kim Joo Hyuk, Jung Joon Young, and Defcon. The new teaser for season three shows a unique approach to the show as the new members express their honesty in their lack of confidence to be funny. The different approach of season three has stirred anticipation as many have become curious of the chemistry between the members who form such an unlikely group.  “1N2D” season three will air its first episode on December 1 at 4:55pm (KST).

No New Members For “1 Night 2 Days” However A Familiar Face Will Return



We reported recently that Joo Won was going to be leaving KBS’s veteran Sunday variety show, ’1 Night, 2 Days.” We’ve now got some addition reports regarding the show with KBS clarifying that Joo Won will not be replaced and the show will continue on as a party of 6. However there will be some changes to the staffing line up with an exclusive report published by “Star Today” revealing that we will be seeing the return of a similar face to the “1 Night, 2 Day” staffing line up.

First off, the lead producer for the KBS Variety Show division, Park Joong Min EP (Executive Producer) has revealed in a phone call with news media outlet “Star News” that “We are planning on continuing the show as a party of 6 after Joo Won leaves” and that “We will not be adding in an additional member.” Regarding this decision, Park Joong Min EP explains that “Up till now ’1 Night, 2 Days’ has not brought in a new member after a member has left” and that “The team work amongst the current members is currently at its peak and when we take this into consideration we predict that adding in a new member might, on the contrary, cause issues as they rebuild their team work again. Hence we won’t be bringing in a new member.”

However while they may not be adding a new member, it does appear that they are planning to once again revamp their staffing line up for the 3rd time this season. While this in itself is certainly interesting, the new producer they’ve convinced to take the helm of “1 Night, 2 Day” will surely cause some excited murmurings amongst fans.


In an exclusive report released by news media outlet “Star Today,” it has come to light that the next producer in line to try and revive the flagging show will be none other than Yoo Ho Jin PD. Name alone might not sound familiar but if you’re a fan of the show and have watched “1 Night, 2 Day Season 1” then you will definitely recognise who this is. For a short refresher, Yoo Ho Jin PD was the “rookie PD” during Season 1 of “1 Night, 2 Day” and is widely known as the PD that got fooled by Kang Ho Dong and Kim C during a hidden camera segment.

A worker from the KBS Variety Show division explains that “The KBS Variety Show Division saw a range of sweeping changes coinciding with the Autumn program reorganizations. A part of those changes appears to be a change in the Main PD for “1 Night, 2 Days.” They continued to explain that “Yoo Ho Jin PD, who became famous for being extremely fooled in a hidden camera corner 6 years organised by Kang Ho Dong, Kim C and the original members, is currently the PD that is being mentioned as being the most likely to take the Main PD job (For the show).


They also explained that “Along with Joo Won leaving the show and the show reaching a turning point, if Yoo PD is confirmed to be joining the show then it does appear like he will inject some fresh life into the show.” The worker however notes that “There was a lot of discussions regarding a change to the production team for “1 Night, 2 Days” as part of the Autumn Program Organizations. Yoo Ho Jin PD is pretty much confirmed to be joining the show but there is still detailed discussions remaining.”

He also praised Yoo Ho Jin PD saying that “whether it’s his exception abilities since joining the company or his personality, Yoo Ho Jin PD is someone that is praised by everyone.” He continued on by saying “He is already acquainted with most of the core members and he has the experience so if he is confirmed to be joining the show then we look forward to seeing good results.”

After leaving “1 Night, 2 Day Season 1,” Yoo Ho Jin PD has been responsible for co-producing “Music Bank” before moving on to producing the talk show “Win Win” and “Moonlight Prince.” He is currently the producer for the sports variety show “Our Neighbourhood Sports And Variety Stars” or as KBS World would like us to call it “Cool Kiz On The Block” with the “Z.”

“Even after a member’s leave, ‘1N2D’ has never added another member for the sake of replacing him. Considering that the current members’ teamwork is at its peak, adding a replacement member might disrupt the teamwork, so in consideration of that, we decided not to add a new member.”

Shin Dong Yup and Sung Shi Kyung gave fans goosebumps with their crazy stalker incidents.

On the September 28th broadcast of JTBC‘s ‘Witch Hunt‘, Shin Dong Yup recalled one of his experiences with a stalker, sharing, “There is a fine line between affection and obsession.” Sung Shi Kyung asked him, “Shin Dong Yup sshi also had a lot of stalkers, right?”

She was so shocked that she fell. I called the police, cursing. I told that person to get lost. You’re not a fan, but an insane person. How can you call yourself a fan?”, sharing that when a fan crosses the line, then they’re no longer fans but in need of mental help.

Sung Si-kyung denies rumor

Singer Sung Si-kyung denied rumors that started Thursday saying he is stepping down from his daily radio program, “FM Music City This Is Sung Si-kyung”, in September.

On Thursday’s broadcast he directly addressed the subject, stating that he is not leaving the show, to console fans that were worried he could be leaving.

The singer has been hosting the show for the past two years since June 2011.

“It is perplexing that there were rumors about him stepping down in the first place”, said an official at Sung’s agency, Jellyfish Entertainment, according to local media.

“We were just talking about maybe altering some things prior to the regular fall season reshuffle”.

Thursday’s reports said that Sung was thinking about leaving the show to focus on recording a new album and preparing a comeback as a singer.

Why Did Joo Won Put On A Thick Layer Of Suncreen?



When he is not immersed in his latest acting role for drama “Good Doctor,” Joo Won is usually seen showing off a different side of himself on KBS’s popular variety show “1 Night, 2 Days.” This week, he has once again given viewers something to laugh about and all he needed was sunscreen- a lot of sunscreen.

On the recent airing of KBS’s “1 Night, 2 Days” the team headed to the city of Gangneung so that they could hike across the famous Gangneung Rock Trek. During this episode, Joo Won and Sung Si Kyung was heading to Jumunjin when Joo Won decided to use a brief pause to apply some sunscreen to avoid the current heat wave. However, in his efforts to fully cover his face, he goes a bit overboard and ends up looking like one of the characters from the Japanese Kabuki theatre performances.

But why was Joo Won so intent on making sure his skin was kept in tip top condition? The reason is because of his latest drama “Good Doctor.” Joo Won explains, “I don’t usually apply sunscreen, but when I’m with (Moon) Chae Won the camera man keeps saying that the white balance is off,” hence Joo Won’s effort to try and get his skin color to match Moon Chae Won’s fairer skin. Joo Won, however, seems pretty happy with his work saying that it “Looks Alright” while looking at his new image in the mirror.
