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.

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.
