Defconn is asked to choose between Yoo Jae Suk and Kang Ho Dong

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.


Kang Ho Dong reveals he feels honored to be compared to Yoo Jae Suk


During the recent filming of new KBS 2TV variety show ‘Moonlight Prince‘, host Kang Ho Dong revealed he feels honored to be compared to his well-known rival and friend Yoo Jae Suk.

Kang Ho Dong shared, “Calling me Yoo Jae Suk’s rival is the biggest compliment. I’m jealous of Yoo Jae Suk, Shin Dong Yup, Tak Jae Hoon, Lee Kyung Kyu, and more. They are born to do comedy and variety shows. Because I did sports, I feel I lack in the basics. To make up for the areas I lack in, I have no choice but to consistently work hard. Thus, if you compare me to Yoo Jae Suk, I feel very very honored and embarrassed. I will do my best to keep being compared to him. I’ll work and study hard.”

In other news, Kang Ho Dong’s new book talk show ‘Moonlight Prince’, featuring co-hosts ChangminBrave BrothersJung Jae Hyung, and Tak Jae Hoon, will premiere on the 22nd at 11:15 PM KST!

Yoo Jae Suk and Kang Ho Dong are only successful when rivals?

With Kang Ho Dong confirmed to return to ‘Knee Drop Guru‘ and ‘Star King‘, many fans are anticipating the revitalized rivalry between him and Yoo Jae Suk. The two MCs are very close friends and had made their place as the two top ‘national MCs’. However, after Kang Ho Dong halted his activities, Yoo Jae Suk kept the ‘national MC’ title.

However, Yoo Jae Suk had been hit with his own problems after Kang Ho Dong’s hiatus. ‘Infinity Challenge‘ was delayed for 24 weeks from February to July, only airing again months before Kang Ho Dong’s comeback. ‘Come to Play‘ suffered even more, plummeting in viewer ratings to 3%. ‘Happy Together 3‘ also fell in ratings because viewers started to get bored of the public bath format. ‘Running Man‘ had been Yoo Jae Suk’s only high note, but ‘1 Night 2 Days‘ had recently taken back over its #1 Sunday night viewer rating spot.

With Kang Ho Dong’s return, Yoo Jae Suk’s programs are also stepping up their game. ‘Infinity Challenge’ has returned back to its explosive popularity. ‘Come to Play’ and ‘Happy Together 3′ have also gone through a redesign in format, earning praise from many viewers.

An insider in broadcast stated, “Ironically, even though Yoo Jae Suk and Kang Ho Dong have always been rivals, when Kang Ho Dong left, Yoo Jae Suk seemed to lose strength. However, once Kang Ho Dong’s comeback was confirmed, Yoo Jae Suk revitalized.

Kang Ho Dong and Yoo Jae Suk will once again be going head to head. ‘Knee Drop Guru’ will air at the same time as ‘Happy Together 3′, while ‘Star King’ airs with ‘Infinity Challenge’.
