How the Real “1 Night, 2 Days” PD Feels Watching Kim Soo Hyun in “Producer”

How the Real “1 Night, 2 Days” PD Feels Watching Kim Soo Hyun in “Producer”

With the popularity of KBS’ Friday-Saturday drama “Producer,” many viewers have been wondering if the drama is realistically portraying what actually happens behind-the-scenes of KBS’ Sunday variety show “1 Nights, 2 Days.”

“Producer,” starring Cha Tae Hyun, Gong Hyo Jin, Kim Soo Hyun, and IU, portrays the world of the variety department in KBS, focusing on the production of “1 Night, 2 Days.” Kim Soo Hyun plays the role of Baek Seung Chan, a newbie PD in the variety show’s production team. A little awkward and clumsy, his character brings to mind PD Yoo Ho Jin of “1 Night, 2 Days,” who was introduced to viewers of the actual variety show years ago as the newbie PD. The show pulled a hidden camera prank on him back then, showing him very green, very flustered, and very confused in the face of the cast fighting. Now Yoo Ho Jin is in charge of the show, having shed his “newbie” title.

Fun fact: Baek Seung Chang graduated from Seoul University and Yoo Ho Jin is actually a graduate of Korea University. Both universities are considered one of the top three in Korea.

Regarding the similarity between him and Baek Seung Chan, Yoo Ho Jin commented, “I think his clumsiness and the chaos he feels as the newbie PD is similar to how I was.” He added, however, “When I see his good-looking face, though, I think he is very different. It was disheartening.”

Instead of Baek Seung Chan being a dramatized version of him, Yoo Ho Jin thinks that the character is more a portrayal of how a lot of youngsters in society feel like, just entering the workforce. “But the variety department is a little more difficult than a regular company,” he added.

When asked if he applied to become a KBS PD because of a pretty school senior like Baek Seung Chan did, Yoo Ho Jin answered, “LOL. No. I applied because I had to earn a living.”

Jung Joon Young Wows “1 Night 2 Days” with His Eccentric Quiz Answers

jung joon young quiz 2

Jung Joon Young’s slightly lacking sense of common knowledge was revealed on “1 Night 2 Days.”

On the episode of KBS 2TV’s “1 Night 2 Days” aired on February 22, the crew travels to Icheon in Gyeonggi Providence for the “Exclusive! 1 Day 2 Nights” special. Jung Joon Young especially releases his random charms on full force.

Jung Joon Young, Kim Joo Hyuk, and Defconn team up with reporters Jung Sae Bae, Kim Na Na, and Kang Min Soo for a quiz with dinner at stake. However, the team is off to a shaky start as Jung Joon Young comments, “What is common knowledge? Is it like an essay,” when the staff announces the quiz will be on common knowledge.

At first, Jung Joon Young approaches the quiz at a humble position, saying, “I won’t be much help during the game.” However, he shows off his confidence as he strikes a haughty pose, remarking, “I watch a lot of news.”

For sure, his level of common knowledge is mind blowing—and it’s not because he’s a genius. At one point he says, “Greenbelt? That’s the name of a president,” confusing President Roosevelt’s names as greenbelt.

Kim Jun Ho officially closes CoKo Entertainment due to financial trouble

Following recent controversy, CoKo Entertainment has finally closed its doors for business after long hardship in its financial status. Kim Jun Ho, a successful gag-man, started the agency with a co-worker, along with many of his fellow performers contracted.

The official announcement following the closure was made on January 24th by the agency themselves mentioning that they will no longer be in business due to its lack of funds.

In the official statement that follows, CoKo Entertainment said, “We thank everyone for all the attention CoKo Entertainment had received until now. Unfortunately, it is hard for us to announce such a grieving news to you all. We’d like to explain a more in-depth story of our financial issues that were brought to public in the recent past along with our opinion and plans for the future.”

The announcement continued, “As we have said in our previous reports, CoKo Entertainment’s CEO Mr. Kim, in partnership with Kim Jun Ho, continued to delay payments for the contracted performers along with their exclusive contract fee. At that point, we decided there were problems in the company’s finances. After further investigations, we found out that Mr. Kim had embezzled the company’s funds, including the performers’ income from their individual programs.

“Mr. Kim had run away to the United States by the time the crime was found out. The major shareholders have sued Mr. Kim for his crime and provided the police with solid evidence. The staff has made all efforts possible in order to revive the company and its finances. However, after Mr. Kim’s run away, many additional debts arose. Currently in January, the amount of debt reached millions of dollars. After such situations, the executives of CoKo Entertainment have agreed that revival of the company is impossible, thus ending its business.”

In addition to their current situations, Kim Jun Ho, as a representative staff of the company, had helped with their financial problems. The statement says, “to help performers who were not being paid, Kim Jun Ho used his own money to completely pay for those who were in need of money immediately. In fact, we are giving our best to completely pay for our part-time workers as soon as possible.

The company ended their official statement with a rather sad finish, “We, CoKo Entertainment, apologize to our part-time workers, contracted performers, and all those who have watched and paid attention to us.

In late 2014, news came to light that the co-CEO of CoKo Entertainment, Kim Woo Jung, had embezzled company funds and disappeared. Soon after, news arose of discord within the company with the revelation that its comedians had yet to be paid, along with other concerns of income distribution and unfair contracts. Continuing investigations, on January 12th, 2015, Kim Woo Jung was also charged with investment fraud. Despite the turmoil during the past few months, staff of the company have remained vigilant alongside Kim Jun Ho as investigations continued.
