1 Night 2 Days: Episode 337
by | June 12, 2011 | 73 Comments

And with that, we conclude the delightfully amusing Actress Special of 1 Night 2 Days, which is a little sad because it totally whets my appetite for more. But on the other hand, the rarity of such an event is a large part of the reason why it’s so entertaining when that blue moon swings around and we get such an unexpected burst of awesome. Well, the special may be over, but the memories last forever.

EPISODE 337. Broadcast on June 5, 2011.

javabeans: So Team Su-geun is caught red-handed by Na PD, eating out of a pot of ramen they’re not allowed to have. Jung-ah’s first words: “Honestly, I didn’t even eat a bite.” Su-geun laughs because it’s a blatant lie, and points out, “Look at the sweat on your nose! You were gorging…” Meanwhile, Seo Woo is busy cramming what she can before the ramen is confiscated.

girlfriday: I love that she has to get that last spoonful in before he takes it away. Must! Have! Ramen!

javabeans: Na PD seems genuinely surprised at how they managed to sneak food, and Su-geun says they stole three packs from the food truck.

girlfriday: I think also Na PD is used to the boys complaining, but always following the rules. That’s just the unspoken contract between the PDs and the boys. So when the girls blatantly break the rules, it actually surprises him.

javabeans: Team Ho-dong replays their water immersion, and Ji-woo explains that after seeing the guys dive in, she thought she’d be fine and had planned to come out looking glamorous, tossing her hair back (I’m thinking the Little Mermaid). But the moment she hit the water, it was so cold she lost all thought and froze.

girlfriday: I love that she admits that.

javabeans: It’s funnier with Hye-young, because she admits that she’d been unimpressed with Ji-woo’s move, thinking she’d look so much cooler… and then ended up flailing.

girlfriday: Heh. She entered as a mermaid and came out as a drenched poodle.

javabeans: Methinks Ho-dong is still harboring some resentment over losing, because even as he’s MC’ing the dinner bok-bul-bok game, he introduces Team Su-geun as “The Bad Team.”

girlfriday: The thing about Ho-dong that’s endearing is that his pettiness is so transparent.

javabeans: SO petty. Sumi manages to somehow take over the proceedings by bringing up her team’s efforts to link Ji-woo and Seung-gi, and Su-geun reveals the Tae-woong/Haneul connection. Which totally makes Tae-woong blush, again.

girlfriday: Seriously, what’s with the schoolboy blushing? How can someone his age be so… unfamiliar with girls?

javabeans: Sumi proposes a “game” wherein each member picks their ideal actress partner, and if the actress reciprocates, “You have to marry.” As in, your two options are to “marry” that actress, or if actress says no, then you’re locked up life in prison. (As the game progresses, she revises it to the death penalty. She’s a bloodthirsty one.) It’s totally “for real” — only forget if they’re currently married, and erase their pasts. So, not for real then.

girlfriday: Yeah… what, now? This game makes no sense, and everyone knows it, but they play along because popularity contests are always fun. Sumi also slays them with her Ji-woo/Seung-gi matchmaking: “Seung-gi-ya! Just get engaged before you go to the army!”

javabeans: It’s hilarious, because Sumi’s basically got the game imagination of a 6-year-old, but with the authority of a 60-year-old. And what purpose does this game have? Absolutely none, except to be totally entertaining. Ho-dong is given three seconds to make his choice — not his ideal woman, but the one he’d want to live with — and he calls out Ji-woo’s name. So then it’s Ji-woo’s turn to answer, and she picks… Lee Su-geun!

girlfriday: Man, she really likes Su-geun. She picked him first that morning too, at the coffee shop.

javabeans: Then it’s Haneul’s turn, and everyone waits for her to make her choice…and when she picks Ho-dong, Tae-woong actually falls to the ground in mock (?) disappointment. Su-geun points out, “Anybody could tell that was a lie…”

girlfriday: Tae-woong seems so sad…

javabeans: Then it’s Tae-woong’s turn, and I love that the camera makes it a point to keep Haneul in the two-shot, tracking her reaction. Ji-won suggests he pick Ho-dong, and Sumi pipes up to give her consent: “Men can choose men!”

girlfriday: HELL YES! God, I love her. Bring on the bromance pairs!

javabeans: Sumi picks Jong-min, adding, “Even though I’m shorter than Hyun Young.” Aw. (Jong-min was dating Hyun Young for a while, and I always felt sad about their breakup.)

girlfriday: Aw, me too. Their noona-dongseng romance seemed so cute.

javabeans: The dinner at stake consists of dishes everyone loves: kimchi jjigae and samgyupsal (pork belly), which is basically like the Korean equivalent of…pizza and hamburgers? What’s different about this round of bok-bul-bok is, rather than playing to win the foods for everyone, the two teams are playing against each other. Meaning, only one team gets kimchi, or samgyupsal, or whatnot. Ooh. Way to spark the competitive spirit.

girlfriday: Also, it occurs to me that one team could end up with side dishes like garlic and chives, while the other wins all the kimchi and pork belly. That’d be sad.

javabeans: First battle is for kimchi.

girlfriday: The Human Zero Game: Everyone sits down, and the opposing team calls out a number (from zero up to the number of people there are). If the playing team stands up to match the exact number that gets called out, they lose. It’s the same principle as mook-jji-ppa, in a sense — you have to play anything EXCEPT the number that gets called out.

javabeans: Question: Jung-ah called 5, and only 3 stood. Is it because two of them were half-standing?

girlfriday: If you raise your butt, that’s standing.

javabeans: I love how much Team Su-geun celebrates, almost unsportingly happy to have beaten their opponents, singing and huddling while Team Ho-dong blames Jong-min for not standing. Tuna is the next prize, won via telephone-charades. I love this game, because you have the humiliation of charades, mixed with the confusion of telephone. And if the first person gesturing is doing something totally weird or embarrassing, the next person has to replicate it anyway because otherwise the clue gets lost. Which is the case with Su-geun, who pulls the term “dirty dancing.” Oh my god.

girlfriday: HAHAHAHA. That is the funniest interpretation of Dirty Dancing ever.

javabeans: Jung-ah can’t even begin to replicate that. Or rather, she won’t. It’s too shameful.

girlfriday: Haneul: “But that’s TOO DIRTY.” Ha.

javabeans: Seung-gi: “You’re my opponent, but I respect you!” And then, Su-geun has to run to the bathroom as a result of all that gyrating. Caption: “The result of such intensely dirty dancing.” Brings new meaning? (Ew.)

girlfriday: Everything Su-geun leads to toilet humor. Why do I know so much about this man’s gastrointestinal functions?

javabeans: Ramen noodles are the next prize. The game: Each teammate has to provide an answer to the prompt, such as “One-syllabled animal name.” Or “three-syllabled food ending in tang.” Jung-ah fails that one right away, and I think I’m starting to love her the most. She’s so delightfully…immature?

girlfriday: She’s hilarious. Birth of a new cho-ding.

javabeans: Time for the multiplication tables. This, by the way, spawns a hysterical freestyle rap between Ji-won and Su-geun. Their rap v.1 is hilarious for its spontaneity, but their v.2 makes me giggle aloud because they’re doing double-duty: rapping AND insulting Ho-dong! Su-geun: “Kang Ho-dong! You…can’t rap!” Ji-won: “You’re just fat!” Su-geun: “That’s why you lose!” Okay, maybe it’s funnier in Korean because it rhymes and has rhythm.

girlfriday: It’s HYSTERICAL in korean. The funny gets lost in translation, but I was dying.

javabeans: I love how Haneul can’t contain her glee. She’s like, “Ah, so THIS is what it’s like” (in real life). All throughout dinner bok-bul-bok, I feel like Team Su-geun is totally bringing the funny, and Team Ho-dong is sorta stuck in reaction mode.

girlfriday: It’s pretty much The Su-geun Show.

javabeans: With the help of lovely assistant Ji-won.

girlfriday: He’s seriously cracking me up lately. I mean, I’ve always loved Ji-won, but he’s totally upping his game. The final round is rock-paper-scissors for the pork belly, and they send Ji-woo up against Seo Woo. Haneul turns gangster all of a sudden, whispering in Seo Woo’s ear, “It’s samgyupsal.” As in: Get your head in the game, or die.

javabeans: No pressure. Ji-woo ends up winning the rock-scissors-paper, and at least each team ends up with something decent — it’s kimchi fried rice on one side, samgyupsal on the other.

girlfriday: Ji-woo points out how stressful these games are, and takes it out on Na PD’s pointy finger stick. “I don’t like that finger. What’s that pink finger about?” Hahaha.

javabeans: In the end, they do sorta bend the rules by sharing the meat with the other team, capping off dinner with Ji-woo’s morning watermelon. And then, it’s time for the game to determine who sleeps in or out. Every member is responsible for his/her own fate: Everyone crouches, and one by one, they have to count off as each member stands. The problem is, if two people stand at the same time, they’re both out. So you have everyone crouching there, trying to decide when it’s safe to get up, trying to anticipate everyone else’s moves.

girlfriday: This is one of those genius-simple games that I love. It creates tension but is no-frills.

javabeans: Everyone laughs at Jung-ah’s old-lady attempt to stand up — it’s her disc again — and she says she can’t do this game well because of it. But there are no freebies in 1N2D, and Su-geun says, “You’ll be happy sleeping outside then…”

girlfriday: And then, wouldn’t you know… they get up at the same time, and both of them have to sleep outside. Heh. Next round, Seung-gi and Ji-woo are out, and then finally Haneul and Seo Woo. Everyone gets ready for bed, and the girls wonder if they should shower or just sleep with their makeup on, knowing that they have to be on camera first thing in the morning. SO not a question ever asked on this show. They decide that showering is out (apparently the majority of them have curly-fro hair, which is probably an exaggeration, but cute nonetheless).

javabeans: Haneul: “If you watch my dramas, whenever it rains, my hair suddenly turns into a perm!”

girlfriday: Heh. Girls are girls, no matter how famous they are for being pretty.

javabeans: Then the beauty regimen begins. It’s blowing Haneul’s mind, this fixation with watching her wash her face and brush her teeth. It’s like when Tae-woong started the show, when there was this fascination with how he took care of himself, in a way that totally isn’t there with the other members.

girlfriday: Besides Seung-gi, who’s gone through his fair share of man-beauty regimen on this show over the years. It’s so cute how Haneul is both fascinated and totally self-conscious. She bursts into laughter every few minutes, wondering if it’s okay to show all this on camera. Over and over, “Is this okay?”

javabeans: The four ladies sleeping outside — Jung-ah, Ji-woo, Haneul, Seo Woo — settle into their tent for the night, and here’s a case where I think it’s actually a good thing — they get to bond, laugh at how absurd this is, and stick it out together. And while Sumi and Hye-young enjoy the warm indoors, it’s just not as interesting to watch them sitting there being comfortable. I feel like in the long run they’ll totally be friends because of it. It’s cute how Jung-ah, as the eldest, announces that the unnis will sleep in the middle where it’s warmer (and camera-free), and the young’uns have to sleep on the outside. Hee.

girlfriday: Oh, totally. It’s suffering that builds bonds. At least on this show.

javabeans: Outside, before calling it a night, Seung-gi sings the ladies a lullaby, which is supposed to be this cool, swoony gesture…except that girls burst out giggling instead.

girlfriday: HA. Epic Swoon Fail.

javabeans: Seung-gi: “You can’t laugh! I was getting into the emotion!”

girlfriday: Pffffft. Inside, the other boys confer over the day’s festivities. The main topic of conversation: Who Haneul REALLY meant to pick in the matchmaking game earlier. How much do I love that boys do exactly what girls do, when left alone? To the disbelief of everyone in the room, Ho-dong insists that she could totally be into him.

javabeans: Is it just me, or does everyone expect that she really meant Tae-woong, and is just dancing around the subject?

girlfriday: Yeah, that’s what they all expect, although Tae-woong does support the theory that women do find Ho-dong sexy. “My noona thinks you’re sexy.” What the…?

javabeans: Hilariously, nobody believes Tae-woong until he pulls out the Uhm Jung-hwa name, and then it’s like, “I guess it’s true…but HOW in the hell is that true?!”

girlfriday: I love that no matter how ridiculous it seems, Ho-dong is convinced that Haneul could have chosen him. It’s like his childish jealousy over women loving Seung-gi earlier that day.

javabeans: Ji-won: “But she didn’t say anything about you, THE WHOLE TIME we were coming here.” And then Jong-min bursts his bubble with an idea that carries some weight: That Haneul used Ho-dong’s name to cast off suspicion from her real answer. Of course, he totally ruins that moment of insight by suggesting that the guy for whom she harbored secret interest is himself. HAHA.

girlfriday: OMG, these guys crack me up.

javabeans: The guilty-scared looks on their faces when Haneul suddenly appears at the door makes me die laughing. She actually happens to be here by coincidence, but couldn’t have picked more incriminating timing, and they’re all panicking that she overheard.

girlfriday: The timing is SO PERFECT. Now they’re all of a sudden squirming, two seconds after all that ego-boosting male posturing.

javabeans: “She was totally checking me out.” “No, it was ME!” “Omg its her hidehidehide!” What’s awesome is that they invite her in and ask her about it directly, and Ho-dong can’t wait to ask why she picked him, all ready to puff up with his newfound sexy pride. But she answers plainly that she said his name because she felt weird answering honestly.

girlfriday: It’s a one-swing KO. They die laughing at Ho-dong’s expense, which is warranted, because seriously. Dude. Seriously.

javabeans: This is so junior high school, I’m giggling.

girlfriday: It’s like passing her a note: “Who do you like? Check one…”

javabeans: So then it’s Tae-woong’s turn to suggest they had a little something brewing on the trip over, although he can’t manage it without reddening again. Ho-dong, still smarting, says with “concern” that Tae-woong should really be focusing on his entertainment career right now, not his love life.

girlfriday: Heh. Buuuuuurn. And then he asks Haneul what she thought about Su-geun (if he made things fun for their team), and she waves her finger, “He was the least fun of all!”

javabeans: She does admit Tae-woong was the most fun. Then it’s time for them to get to the crux of it all: Which guy does she find most attractive? “For realsies!” (They are such babies.) She starts to consider it seriously — you can tell because she gets all embarrassed — and says there are two she has in mind, but they insist she can only pick one name. And then they all sit up in anticipation, not even trying to hide their interest, like a dog waiting for a treat.

girlfriday: It’s so juvenile. And SO cute. And then… after an endless build-up… she picks… EUN JI-WON!

javabeans: HEE! I love that it’s the one guy who wasn’t posturing, who totally didn’t expect it. The guys are flummoxed, most of all Ji-won himself. “Who, me?”

girlfriday: Omg, I’m squeeing right now.

javabeans: Haneul runs away immediately, and then explains to the cameras that she was being honest, although yes, Tae-woong was her other choice. Alas, she saw the recent episode where he was texting Su Ae, and wags her finger at the camera, “So that wouldn’t do.” AHAHAHAH. Does petard-hoisting apply in this scenario? Foiled by his own popularity? (Although, all this conscious avoiding of attempts to link her to Tae-woong make my suspicious mind whirl… Is she trying too hard?)

girlfriday: Haha. Actually I think it’s pretty honest (and hilarious). Besides, it was Tae-woong who was blushing all day long because of her, while she was splitting her sides laughing at his dorkdom.

girlfriday: The morning mission: each member gets paired with an actress, and they have to wake up and hold hands. Once they start, they can’t let go until the game is over. They search for flags, and the first three teams who find the flags win breakfast, made by Sumi herself.

javabeans: Am I the only one who saw that Ji-won and Haneul had been paired and thought, “Oh, they’re gonna crush it”?

girlfriday: Totally. Love that the PDs went with her confession from the night before, and paired them up. Also, Tae-woong and Ji-woo hold hands to romantic music, which is overkill, but I have to admit, they look pretty together. I love the way that Ji-won is just such a normal guy, an oppa. The way he calls her “Haneul-ah” is just so normal, it’s weird. If that makes sense.

javabeans: How much does it tickle my fancy that all the flags were spotted by the ladies? Sumi sees the flag in the water, Hye-young sees the one posted outside (which ends up counting even though it was just supposed to be a spare), Ji-woo sees the one inside, and Seo Woo finds the one in the tree…although Cheater Duo Haneul and Ji-won swoop in, and meddle enough to cause the other team to drop hands for a second.

girlfriday: And with that team out of the way, Ji-won picks Haneul up by the shoulders and she plucks the flag from the tree. Sumi makes breakfast for the winners, and the two maknaes, Seung-gi and Seo Woo, do their jobs properly and help out, like well-raised children. God, sometimes it sucks to be the maknae. I’m having flashbacks to family gatherings. It particularly sucks to be in Seo Woo’s position — the youngest girl of the bunch. It means she has to do everything. Sigh. I’m having sympathy pangs for some reason, watching her haul ass because of birth order. It’s just the Korean way.

javabeans: As she’s cleaning, one crew member points out what he thinks is a clever reference: “Look, it’s The Housemaid!” Seo Woo laughs: “I was the owner’s wife in that! You obviously haven’t seen it!”

girlfriday: Hahaha. That was cute. At breakfast, Sumi convinces Na PD to at least let all the actresses eat, so he relents. They share a happy meal with song and dance, and then do the closing and say goodbye. It’s adorable how nobody wants to leave. It’s just like the last day of summer camp.

javabeans: I like that they had a little epilogue after everyone had separated, and after the first episode had aired. The crew catches up to each actress in her daily life (Ji-woo doing a CF in Japan, Sumi doing a musical, Haneul at a press conference for her movie, and so on) and gives her a photo taken on the last day. It does seem like they’ve formed some friendships that may carry through, with Ji-woo and Haneul going out for brunch together and everyone seeming game to do it again, were they asked to.

girlfriday: It’s great to show the actresses back in their element, the way we’re so used to seeing them — all glammed up for the cameras. But it intentionally feels different, now that we’ve seen them fight for a bite of food and stuff their faces and cheat their way around the system for a packet of ramen. Sumi confesses that she thought the boys would eat off-camera on the show, and was surprised to find how strictly they stick to the rules. “Because it’s honest, I like 1 Night 2 Days. They attack those games so frightfully because they’re hungry.” So true. ‘Tis the not-so-secret secret of the show.

  3. mems

    Love it! Can’t wait till the subbed version comes out.

    Am I the only one who’s dying to see Tae-woong and Haneul in drama/movie together?

    • 3.1 John

      No. They really do look like they would do well together.

    • 3.2 Saima

      same here!! k, Jiwon wears something that looks like a wedding ring…so he’s taken, right?!! If yes, then Haneul was totally trying to go with ‘safe’ option n avoid any embarrassment but seriously if Haneul n Tae-woong get together….their babies would be so beautiful!! lulz

      On a serious note it does boggle my mind that Tae-woong ‘still’ blushes like a school boy when a pretty girl’s mentioned!! O_O

      • 3.2.1 Arhazivory

        lol. Jiwon is married. If you google images for ‘eun ji won wedding’ you will see his lovely wedding pics.

  4. melia

  5. roake

  7. yingz

    Thanks for the recap! I liked the epilogue the most, since i’ve forgotten how “TOP STAR” this ladies are until they’re shown doing their “usual stuff” and makes me appreciate the rarity of getting them into this show and showing their down to earth side~

  8. ricky the royal highness

    I love this episode 🙂

    I could picture Tae Woong blushing and the scene where Haneul discovered them talking about her is just awesome!

    Great recap! Thanks..

    If this is the first comment, I’m beyond happy.

  9. Rika

    such fun… can’t wait for the english subbed episodes to come out…

  10. 10 obivia

    Must get Tae-woong’s nuna on the show.

    Thanks for this thoroughly entertaining recaps!! Haneul and Taewoong FTW!!

    • 10.1 danna

      yes absolutely!!..actaully while we’re at it can we also get Lee Seon Kyun??

  11. 11 laya

    Thank you for the recap! ^_^

  12. 12 78446

    Thanks for the recap!

    I used to be so addicted to this show before I packed up my apartment, where I had KBS World, and moved back home (different cable provider). With your recaps, I get to catch up!

    And I love how you guys provide a cultural commentary on this show, which is something the subtitles miss, you know, the Korean-ness of it. It’s like bridging the cultural gap, one witty remark at a time. 🙂

    Oh, and the maknae thing. I think that’s an Asian trait. Being the youngest meant you get to be bossed around . . . forever. Just ask my younger brother.

    • 12.1 Ani

      Nah, I thing being the youngest and having to do almost everything definitely can be found in a lot of cultures. It happens in the South Pacific as well. HAHAHA. I am glad I wasn’t the youngest when it came to my siblings. But family gatherings do kill. XD

      • 12.1.1 78446

        Hey, you’re right. The maknae thing is in other cultures as well. Someone from Mexico posted below that it happens to the youngest female there as well.

        Haha, I’m never the youngest female in family gatherings but I am at home so I make it a point to always drag my younger brother down with me. Pffft. Seniority rules!

  13. 13 HanKang4ever

    awww so sad that it has ended already….

    thanks for the recap, JB and GF!

  14. 14 Bevz08

    daebak!!!had fun reading this… i love to see Tae Wong’s and Ji Woo’s team…hahaha

  15. 15 sb

    Thank you for the recap! 1N2D has been so great lately. =D

    The Actors’ Special today was such a FUN contrast!

    • 15.1 sb

      Oh and I forgot how much I loved the Kim Haneul – Eun Ji Won confession-reaction bit. Squee! I’ve totally begun to girl crush on Kim Haneul after watching this special.

  16. 16 kukkoo

    Man, did you guys see the Supporting Actors Special that aired today,.although i couldn’t understand it b/c there’s no sub. Damn it was so funny (it must be funnier if i understand what they’re saying),
    they totally did it like the 1night2days-original-members-way. its really different to have all the boys going on outing together because it don’t matter what’s and what’s not, there’s no time to be picky!

    • 16.1 sb

      Completely different vibe, but so entertaining! I didn’t even know who to expect on this special, so it brought a grin to my face, recognizing some of the comedic ahjusshi actors.

      Where do you find subs for recent 1N2D episodes? I do understand Korean, but I realized that subs help immensely with some variety shows like these!

      • 16.1.1 kukkoo

        i watched it w/o subs. unfortunately the subs will not be out until 3-4 weeks after the first episode aired i think.

        • sb

          Aww boo, I didn’t know that there’s almost a month lag for subs. I guess I will continue to watch without them then! I don’t think it diminishes the fun, since the bulk of the gratification is visual. 🙂

          • Carrot

            Yes yes!!! It was also simply so funny!! Even they weren’t that familiar like the other actresses who make the effort to be friendly. they had those awkward vibe here and there but it was also so funny! They were also really very bold and speak out frankly. I like. It’s their real character, like the actresses.

    • 16.2 spark67

      It was a very different vibe and completely the opposite of the actress special. These actors are the macho actors – very masculine and tough – at least, on film. But their humor also came out in bunches and it will be interesting if this special will bring out their softer side. I already caught a glimpse of it, especially when they managed to film Kim Ji Ru talking wistfully and lovingly to his family (who are apparently in the U.S.) by phone. Can’t wait until next week!

      I know this is not part of last week’s episode but what I loved about the supporting actors’ special (hilarious) – when Song Dong Il and Co. made fun of Tae Woong.

      Song Dong Il: I’m curious about something. Why do you pay Um Tae Woong for not saying a word?
      Kim Jung Tae: I mean, at the film set, he’s always muttering about how it’s so hard [@ 1N2D] and everything but seeing him now like this, it doesn’t seem very hard at all. (shouting) If you don’t want to do it, then don’t do it, boy! I’ll do it instead!

      The fact that Um Tae Woong couldn’t really defend himself (since he’s younger than they are) was very amusing and endearing. Can’t wait until next week!

      • 16.2.1 Arhazivory

        lmao. Poor UTW. Thanks for that little tidbit.

  17. 17 mud

    I can’t wait to see the telephone charades part. That screen cap of Su-geun is priceless!!!

  18. 18 maria

    thanks so much for the recap! i’m really loving it! can’t wait to watch it when it airs on kbs world.

  19. 19 kandy

    thank you! 🙂

  20. 20 YoSoyHaru!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the recap, this ep had me laughing none stop. The dirty dancing was hilarious I can’t belive he actually did that. Seo was so cute, it does suck being the youngest female in the family you have to do almost everything not just for koreans but also for mexicans hehe what can we do right :D. Can’t wait for next weeks recap Actor Special.

  21. 21 stars4u

    I could watch this special over and over and crack up like it’s the first time I’ve seen it.

  22. 22 MLkim

    i thought the actress’ special was fun and “special” but today’s supporting actor’s special was hilarious. literally i was dying laughing.

  23. 23 Schmazel

    Jung Ah is such a funny ajumma. Lol. And Hanuel is variety gold. I must admit though, I never really fancied Jiwoo (because I can’t stand melodramas) but I love her real life personality. She should consider doing a rom-com and less tear jerkers. 😀

    • 23.1 HanKang4ever

      I agree about JI won – after seeing her in this special she should seriously consider doing a romcom. She could just turn out to be a hoot!

  24. 24 SpongeBob

    OK, I admit the last episode was funny!!!

    Dudes, I would so pick Eun Jiwon too. I loved this 1N2D special to death. SQUEEEEEEEE. Double SQUEEEEEEE. Oh man, it’ll feel weird when things go back to normal next week. Sad day. But, it can’t be a 1N2D Special if it ain’t different. God Imma miss Sumi for her awesomeness. What am i kidding? I’ll miss them all.

      Guess what?! It’s not back to normal next week! It’s the Supporting Actors Special!!! An Ahjussi Special, looking forward to a different dynamic and DB duo’s take on it!

      I think I appreciate her even more for picking Eun Ji Won! He’s brilliant.

    Thanks for the recap!

    I can’t wait to actually watch it with subs. Waiting on the KBS World subbed eps feels like it takes foreeeeevvvveeerrr. Plus, I’m slightly annoyed after realizing they have to cut content out to make our one hour time slot. I’m guilty of wanting the whole thing! So another big thanks for the recaps.

    Can’t wait to read about this actor’s special?

    I loved this special. They so have to do something like this again.

    yeah, the Supporting Actors special today was uber funny.

    the Actors ripped Uhm Tae Woong in the opening. ROFL.

    Seunggi’s uncle-in-law in My GF is a Gumiho was like, “Why is Uhm Tae Woong not saying even a word at all?” ROFL. hilarious. and then they told him off. ahahaa…!!

    and when they had the game where they were given 30 seconds to bring as much stuff from the 1N2D truck out and one actor who was inside the truck basically threw the food out like a baseball. hilarious! and the way they were trying to sneak more stuff out, even though they already have tons of it outside. sooo funny.

    Another awesome recap to one of the best episodes. The supporting actors special is so far so good too. The scenes where they gang up on Uhm Force left me with stomach pains… ^.^ Thanks again ^.^

    also, isn’t Jiwon’s family powerful in Korea? his cousin is a politician, and his grandfather i remember was the president that was assassinated, i think.

    • 30.1 kukkoo

      yeah that’s true, his got some powerful background behind him. his granduncle was the former president who boost popularity during his presidency for economic and industrial growth in South Korea and his daughter is also prominent politician.
      Jiwon’s got some amazing background.

    thanks for the wonderfully funny recap. I’ve started watching this show because of these great recaps, and they’re so fun to watch even when I know what is going to happen. loved it and can’t wait to watch it on TV when it’s finally shown on KBS america.

    I have been following the recap… way too much backlog of things downloaded and not watched… so I will probably get to this… by erm… end of the year!

    But props to javabeans and girlfriday… this is recapping at its best!

    The boys are being boys and the ladies being ladies… actresses at that, love that kinda break the barrier and go all out, unglam or/and fighting for food literally… 1N2D at its best… Thanks for this special trip!

  33. 33 Bluefyre

    I love it!!
    Can’t thank you both enought!! 🙂

  34. 34 Maho

    Aww…it’s over. The special was funny and cute, it was especially awesome to see each actress out their usual element and thrown into the world of 1N2D and they adjusted so quickly that it became so fun that I didn’t want them to leave. 1N2D is rare because actors and singers have their images that were so accoustomed to seeing and that they work hard to build up so when you see them in this enviroment its just great to watch. Jung Ah and Haneul were great they were so cute but hopefully they bring them all back for a future special.

    Where Can I Watch This ?!!

    So enjoyed it, THANK YOU!

    Thanks for the recaps! I’ll never see these actresses in the same way again. Sooo cute! Can’t wait for the episode with the supporting actors.

  38. 38 Cynthia

    Can’t wait for the Eng. subs to come out! Choi Ji-woo said she was in bed for 2 days (sick) after the filming. Woosie!

    OT – news just appeared that my FLAMINGO DREAM wearing Lee Min Ho was in a car accident earlier today and is in the hospital for tests. The car was totalled in the front-end. He was doing a CH stunt and hit a truck.
    The curse continues with our Flower Boys getting into accidents…

    why do i feel like crying after reading this recap?

    There was one part of the episode I was curious about.

    During the morning mission, after Seo Woo spots the flag in the tree (first confusing me because it was so high up that it required the guy to boost the girl upwards, an activity that requires you to break hand-holding to do). Jong-min and Seo Woo try absolutely every alternative besides that tactic, including moving a table in to stand on. Seo Woo and Jong-min get up on said table, except both Ji-won’s and Hong-dong’s pairs interfere. Then you see Seo Woo actually start kicking Hong-dong away?!? (Girl is competitive) and then… the scene cuts away a few minutes ahead.

    I was like… what did they edit out? lol Did Seo Woo actually land a kick/got scolded/etc that they had to edit it out? lol

    Also I felt really bad for Jong-min and Seo Woo because Haneul and Ji-woo simply did the shoulder boost for the flag and breaking hand-holding was apparently fair game for that and I don’t think they thought it would be the case.

    • 40.1 deyaa

      it’s hanuel and jiwon (not Jiwoo)

      actually i wonder the same thing…she wouldnt do the shouldner boost without breaking the holding hand..yet they’re still won ??

    Thanks a lot for the recap ladies. Damn…I can hardly wait for next week’s recap with the actors. XD

    I just finished watching the Actress Special. I noticed they used a background music from Secret Garden, during the morning after part. Just felt nostalgic. 😀

  47. 47 jane

    THIS SPECIAL EPISODE IS VERY ENTERTAINING. I had a lot of fun watching it. And now I’m kinda sad that these special episode ended. lol I hope Kim Haneul would be a permanent member in the show! Or maybe all 6 of them should be a permanent would be great! And I just love the pairings. UTW and CJW look good together..

  48. 48 miss JOY

    I watched a part of this episode before in mid-2011 but I didn’t thought of searching online or downloading it..recently remembered about it and started watching the whole thing all over again, and it was AWESOME!
    I’m personally a Kim Ha-Neul fan but after watching it again, I must say Yeom Jung-ah is delightfully hilarious! For me, she stole the show with her natural humor and her ajumma-like personality..Esp after seeing her in Royal Family, you can’t imagine she’s that a natural humor in real life.She gave me the vibe that she was totally herself and her couldn’t-be-bothered-of-my-image attitude esp when she was hungry was SO ENTERTAINING!

    Choi Ji Woo was also adorably entertaining and Kim Soo Mi totally cracked me up when she fooled the whole cast and crew at the river..No wonder Kim Ha-Neul goes well in comedy cause’ she almost as dorky and funny as her comedic characters in real life…I think she was the most hyper and excited one among the actress..

    I would definitely wanna see them back again for 1n2d is going to have an Actress Special Pt.2..:D 😀
