EPISODE 394. Broadcast on July 8, 2012.

girlfriday: One by one, the boys get picked up by the crew — Tae-hyun at home, Joo-won at the salon, and when they get to Jong-min, he’s like, “But we’re taking my car?” Yeah that’s not much of a pick-up service then. Su-geun reacts very suspiciously, asking if everyone else got picked up too.

javabeans: Don’t you like how all the PDs are like, “We’re escorting you” and all the members are, “You’re dragging us where?”

girlfriday: It gets worse when they’re told that the first thing on the agenda is breakfast. Su-geun: “Whoa… … …” Joo-won: “Why are you doing this?”

javabeans: What, is it a breakfast menu of bugs and offal? That’s where my mind goes first, Fear Factor style.

girlfriday: Right? But then the PDs ask each member to choose between two stews: kimchi or soybean. Is this one of those things where if they don’t all choose the same, nobody eats?

javabeans: Or is it the simpler, less meanypants version where it splits you into teams? The guys are told that they are now incommunicado with their bros, and cell phones are off-limits.

girlfriday: It must be a team thing, because as soon as Tae-woong chooses kimchi, they call out his destination.

javabeans: Aw, now I want everybody else to choose soybean, so we get another Seung-gi-on-his-own-trying-not-to-go-crazy mission.

girlfriday: Oh that was awesome. Yes please!

javabeans: It was especially awesome because it was Seung-gi being all manic, since he’s particularly aware of his variety burden. I wonder who’d be best on his own (as in, most entertaining) in this bunch.

girlfriday: Tae-hyun would be great, but maybe almost too good.

javabeans: Oh right. Is it so easy it’s too easy? I actually want to see Joo-won, because he still has a tendency to hang back and only gets a few highlights per show. He has yet to carry an 1N2D storyline.

girlfriday: Yeah I want to see both Joo-won and Shi-kyung lose at things, get totally messed up, and be really really annoyed and real.

javabeans: Especially since Shi-kyung and Joo-won have a tendency to be the top two players in a bunch of their games. You’ve got to break them down, variety style. In the immortal words of Real World: What happens when people stop being polite… and start getting real? *Dramatic pause*

girlfriday: Both Tae-hyun and Tae-woong are the first to arrive for their respective teams. I love how nervously Tae-woong eats, like any second a monster’s gonna jump out from the shadows and eat him.

javabeans: Yes, a monster named Bird PD whose special talent is stealing food. I feel like I’d give myself indigestion even when I’m allowed to eat freely, just from the stress.

girlfriday: Jong-min arrives on Team Soybean, and sees Seung-woo’s car arriving behind him. He points out that Seung-woo hyung is the only member with the big fancy car, because hyung-soonim earns lots of money. Ha.

javabeans: I just love the idea of Kim Nam-joo wearing the pants in his family. Who knows if it’s true in real life, but the recurring narrative cracks me up.

girlfriday: It’s just especially awesome because you can believe she’s a ball-buster, and that she wafts through the house looking fabulous to boot.

javabeans: I was worried Tae-woong would be stuck alone, because Tae-hyun saw that he was ushered to a two-table setup (“Ah, then I’m not alone”) and Tae-woong got sat down at a single table. But Su-geun soon joins him, though he’s eating just as nervously, stopping every other bite to look over his shoulder. But now it’s four versus two, so Joo-won’s the last to arrive… and joins team kimchi. So: Tae-woong, Su-geun, Joo-won versus Tae-hyun, Jong-min, Seung-woo, and Shi-kyung. That actually makes a lot of sense to me, since Joo-won loves Tae-woong and Tae-woong loves Su-geun.

girlfriday: Right? It’s a love triangle on that team.

javabeans: Against two couples, right? ‘Cause Jong-min loves Seung-woo, and Shi-kyung and Tae-hyun were paired previously too.

girlfriday: Um, are Joo-won and Tae-woong wearing couple shirts?

javabeans: HA. So the mission is laid out, and it sounds… vague, to say the least. It’s an “Amazing Race” where the goal is for the teams to find the 1N2D flag… anywhere in Korea. Whuh? They’re not allowed to use: cell phones, internet, or maps.

girlfriday: Seung-woo looks like he’s going to hit the PD.

javabeans: Especially when they’re told that the difference between winners and losers today is “heaven and hell.” That means free time and a dinner feast and A WISH. Oooh. Things just got interesting.

girlfriday: Oh, I love it when there’s a wish. That means slave duty for somebody. I hope it’s Bird PD.

javabeans: The losers… have to peel a thousand bulbs of garlic while the winners bask in free time. And their allowance for the day is a dollar each. Now I understand breakfast.

girlfriday: Yeah it’s breakfast…so you can withstand starving the rest of the day.

javabeans: The first clue to start off the mission is to go to their cars and “Say Ho.” Cryptic. They’ve got to decode it, like wondering if that means a guy named Se-ho, or if it’s a chant that brings you something.

girlfriday: I hope it involves rapping.

javabeans: Tae-woong spots a pen drawing of a fork and spoon on his window. OH is it invisible hint on a window or something, that you have to breathe on? Bingo! Tae-woong huffs on his window, revealing the name of a rest stop. Off they go!

girlfriday: Okay, that’s pretty cool. The other team isn’t as quick on the uptake though, so they search their car over and over, muttering, “Say Ho?”

javabeans: HAHA, so on Su-geun’s prompt, Joo-won walkie-talkies to the producers that if, for whatever reason, they happen to go easy on the other team or give them a hint to even the race, “[Scary voice] Gaksital will never forgive you!!

girlfriday: LOL. It’s adorable how much they love it. They’re all giggling like little boys.

javabeans: Seung-woo finally spots the rest stop mark and they get the hint. We know they’re behind, but the team is feeling comfortable. Shi-kyung reasons: Joo-won is gonna be sleepy from his drama schedule, and Tae-woong will be busy making lame jokes. Cut to: Tae-woong making lame jokes.

girlfriday: They’re so bad that Su-geun and Joo-won cringe, and Joo-won busts out another, “Gaksital will never forgive you!”

javabeans: I love how they arrive at the rest stop so quickly that the staff exclaims, “Already?!”

girlfriday: Bird PD says the mission here is God of Rest Stop. They’ll throw a dart and land on an arcade game and have to match the score listed on the wheel. If they win they get to leave, and if they lose they have to wait ten minutes before trying again.

javabeans: That’s so hard, scoring an exact number. They land on whack-a-mole, and have to score 550 points, which is close to the top score. Ha, they’re really taking to the Gaksital threats; it must be their theme of the day to threaten everyone and -thing with his wrath.

girlfriday: It’s not enough to scare the moles away though, and they have to wait another ten minutes before trying a different game. The other team arrives and they greet each other with hugs since there was no opening where they got to see each other this time. Seung-woo’s team spins and lands on 60 points at basketball.

javabeans: This seems a lot easier than whack-a-mole. Er, it may be hard to get 60 points, but a lot easier to control the result. Except… after they pause at 59 and take aim for the final basket, they score three points. Wait, how does that even work?

girlfriday: Um, that’s bad math.

javabeans: 59 isn’t even divisible by 3. And there’s only one basket.

girlfriday: Maybe it’s just an old machine that makes random calculations. So it’s bokbulbok?

javabeans: Ah, the boys test it out and Tae-hyun figures that depending on how many times the ball hits the rim, it adjusts point totals accordingly. Tricky. And… totally not basketball.

girlfriday: But then when Su-geun’s team plays it, that’s not how it scores. It’s two points each.

javabeans: It must be time, because once the clock winds down to the final 20 seconds, it starts scoring 3 each. That makes more sense.

girlfriday: Man, that’s tricksy. But somehow, they manage to land at 60.

javabeans: They’re totally lucky, because that means you needed to get a certain number before the switch, otherwise you’re screwed. Su-geun’s team wins, so they get the all-clear to leave after Game 2. Leaving Jong-min’s team totally mystified at the workings of the game. They lose their second game, which is still basketball, and have to wait again.

girlfriday: I’m more mystified at how each team keeps landing on the basketball game on the spinny wheel in the first place. But when they get to the machine for Game 3, someone’s already playing it, so they have to wait and wait until he finishes all his bonus rounds. Seung-woo: “Could Su-geun have planted him here?”

javabeans: Thankfully this time they match up their baskets mathematically (?), leaving them with 57 points and 9 seconds to make the last one. Actually they miss, but the machine gives them the score anyway, which is what Joo-won explains happened with their round, too. Stupid tricky machine.

girlfriday: They head to their next destination, and Su-geun’s team takes a really cool one-lane tunnel into another moss-lined tunnel, and Tae-woong marvels, “We’ll come out the other side in the Joseon era!” You watching all those time-travel dramas too, eh? But it turns out to be a wrong turn, and by the time they find their way back, the other team is ahead of them. Whoops.

javabeans: Uh-oh for them, given that they had a head start out of the rest stop. They spot the other team pausing to ask directions and quietly drive by unnoticed, deciding to keep driving. Thankfully they find the right location, coming to a place that makes sense of their clue. They park just moments ahead of the other team and start running, getting their clue first to find the three books listed. They’re hidden inside, and finding them will get them their next destination.

girlfriday: Dude, there are so many books here. And not dewey-decimaled either.

javabeans: They’re all over the place, too, like Gone with the Wind, a law exam guidebook, and one written all in hanja just to be confusing.

girlfriday: It’s utter chaos, with members running from building to building haphazardly, but then eventually each team finds two books. Tae-woong and Shi-kyung seem to be especially good at this game, or at least better than the rest of their teammates.

javabeans: Tae-woong’s team gets all three books first, and when stacked the lines on the spines reveal another hint (letters). They grab these stacks of scrolls from the production and get in their car… which is being blocked by the other team’s car. D’oh!

girlfriday: Haha. The other team calmly looks for their last book, “They have to come back anyway.”

javabeans: The boys run back, wrestle Jong-min’s keys from him, and rush off to move the car. Meanwhile the second team is scratching their heads, trying to figure out how the books reveal a clue, ignoring the letters on the sides. Tae-hyun finally spots them and they get the name: It’s the artist who drew the pictures on the scrolls. Damn, and now their final mission is to FIND the location the artist drew and take a photo to match. Yeesh.

girlfriday: Luckily Tae-woong recognizes the landmarks, and can name one for sure, so his team is off to a good start.

javabeans: He’s happy: “Bird PD thought up a good mission.” Ha, is it because we finally see him excelling at one? So I’m guessing his strong points are trivia quizzes and hiking tasks. Just don’t ask him to play a kiddie game or kick anything.

girlfriday: The PDs radio each team to tell them they have two bokbulbok chances in their car trunks, to use at their discretion. Tae-woong’s team stops to ask for directions, but the captions tell us that the woman has misidentified one of the landmarks. Uh-ohs. So from the get-go they’re planning it wrong. But then Seung-woo’s team stops to ask, and one of theirs gets misidentified too. Ha.

javabeans: Tae-woong’s team stops for more directions and snacks with their 3000 won. Oh man, why am I not surprised that Joo-won even has aegyotastic ways of eating his snack foods, smooshing them together to get all the honey to spread?

girlfriday: I know right? It’s his narration: “I’m going to smoooosh it.”

javabeans: He’s so adorable, and yet, I’m like, Dude. You’re 25.

girlfriday: And then Tae-woong demonstrates his method of eating around the edges first to save the honey for last, and immediately Joo-won copies him. OMG.

javabeans: This is why they are friends. They disembark at their first location, and a local ajumma thankfully sets them straight right away about the one they got wrong. And one of the pictures can be snapped right here. Su-geun asks her to lie when the other team comes up, and she agrees to say they’re in the wrong place. Ha, she says that now, but I wonder if she’ll stick to that when they get here and start sweet-talking.

girlfriday: Team Soybean hits their first location, three giant boulders in the middle of a river. They get their picture and move on to the next. Meanwhile, Team Kimchi reaches their first location, but Bird PD tells them their picture is wrong. Oh dear. Did they go to the wrong one anyway? Why didn’t they listen to the ajumma?

javabeans: Joo-won thinks out loud that it looks like a different landmark (the right one), although his hyungs shoot him down. At least he’s on the right track, since he looks unconvinced.

girlfriday: At least they get their second one right, after a boat ride along the river. Or, I guess that’s still their first. Meanwhile the other team reaches their second destination. I see a reversal in the future.

javabeans: But Team Jong-min also arrives at the wrong landmark, so they’ll be losing time too.

girlfriday: After getting their second picture, Su-geun decides to stop and use one of their bokbulboks.

javabeans: They have to each eat one lemon in order to halt the other team for 15 minutes. Joo-won and Tae-woong go for it, but Su-geun shudders like it’s poison.

girlfriday: The hyungs endure the sour, but Joo-won enjoys it, smiling the whole time. What the?

javabeans: That means that the other team literally has to stop in the middle of the river to wait out their 15 minutes. I’m thinking it’s not a bad place to enjoy the view, but Tae-hyun complains about his constant bad luck — of all the places to get stuck.

girlfriday: Oh no, on their way to the wrong place too?

javabeans: As Tae-woong’s team drives off, he chuckles that he wishes the other team’s bokbulbok food item were raw chicken. Feeling murderous, are you?

girlfriday: Their 15 minute freeze passes and Team Seung-woo takes their picture. Only… it’s not the right place. And for some reason, this team has a hilariously hard time understanding what went wrong.

javabeans: Particularly Shi-kyung, once again reinforcing that image. Smart, but slow?

girlfriday: So stubborn that logic refuses to pass through?

javabeans: Tae-woong’s team gets their third picture, and as Jong-min’s team returns to shore after their time-out, they opt to use their bokbulbok card. They chow on lemons and pull over the other team, who realize that they’ve got a bit of leeway now. They decide that if they see the other car passing them while they’re stopped, they’ll use their second bokbulbok opportunity. If not, they’re still in the lead so they don’t have to use their chance.

girlfriday: So that means Tae-woong and Joo-won spend the fifteen minutes staring down the road just so they don’t miss the other car passing by. The the music turns dramatic, as the captions tell us though they are crouching by the side of the road, these are the drama heroes of Wednesday-Thursday. Heh.

javabeans: But just as soon as those 15 minutes are up, the other team decides to use their second chance right away. Uh-oh! But this one’s a harder task: ditch a team member for another 15 minutes. The ditched teammate has to somehow rejoin them later to pull the final flag.

girlfriday: Oh no. That’s a pretty hefty price to pay. What if he can’t catch up?

javabeans: I feel like the first team to use this one is at the disadvantage. If they ditch a teammate, the other team will know and has the option not to, even if they suffer the 15 minute hold-back. I guess this team can always decide to forgo the opportunity, but it’s a tough call.

girlfriday: At least Shi-kyung volunteers right away to be ditched, so they don’t spend time arguing and deciding that part. He tells them to hurry up and leave, so they do. But as soon as Su-geun’s team gets the call to stop again, they figure they might as well use their chance too.

javabeans: I love the way they immediately decide to ditch one, and Su-geun tells Joo-won to hitchhike like it’s a foregone conclusion. Well, that’s what you get for being maknae.

girlfriday: Haha. He’s like, wait… me?

javabeans: Even funnier is how Su-geun asks the ajusshi, “How far is it running?” Just ‘cause he’s the fastest runner? Ha, but it takes 40 minutes so they’ll have to give it up to the whims of the hitchhiking gods.

girlfriday: So now it’s really a race between Shi-kyung and Joo-won, because you have to have your whole team to win.

javabeans: Actually, Shi-kyung even passes by his team, so it may end up being car versus car; the hitchhikers get to keep traveling during the time-out.

girlfriday: How funny that the ditchee passes his ditchers.

javabeans: Damn, Joo-won runs along the road while waiting for a car. Don’t use all your racing energy now! You may need it at the end! For instance, Shi-kyung catches his second ride with a bus, and hears that the stop is about 3 to 4 kilometers from his goal. He figures, “I can run that.”

girlfriday: Bird PD decides for some crazy reason to go with Joo-won, and just ends up huffing and puffing waaaay behind.

javabeans: Shi-kyung looks like he’s the farthest along, and gets off at the bus stop… where Joo-won sees him, driving by in the ride that he hitched. Eee! The car stops and Shi-kyung tries to hitch a ride with Joo-won. HAHA. Would it be hysterical if they both hitched?

girlfriday: That would be awesome. I love how calmly each of them reacts to the other. “Joo-won-ah.” “Hyung. They threw me away.”

javabeans: But instead, this is where Joo-won gets off, so the boys end up walking together holding hands. Until Joo-won starts running (he seems to enjoy it, saying he’s run a marathon before), and Shi-kyung shouts after him. He watches Joo-won dashing away, muttering, “Damn he’s tough.” This really is going to be a race of car versus car, isn’t it?

girlfriday: Too bad. I’d rather they just keep walking hand-in-hand.

    I’ve never watched a Korean Variety show before but your recaps make this one sound so cute!

        • akapbcup

          Don’t put “ah” in the url. Also, be aware that she posts them when they air on KBSWorld, so they’re a couple weeks behind the Korean airing.

  2. okdubu

    this week’s ending actually felt like a cliffhanger T_T can’t wait till sunday!

    and joowon is like me! 😀 i love lemons

    • 2.1 ParmINrIN

      where can I find this episode online? Help meee

  3. LittleKassieGirl

    JOOWONNNN. WHY SO CUTE? But like Javabeans says, at 25…..

    I can’t wait for the next episode!

    • 3.1 kbap

      I was thinking the same thing! How can Joo-won be so cute? He IS 25 for Pete’s sake. The hand-holding with Shi-kyung slayed me. Bromance ftw! 😀

      • 3.1.1 Airyn

        Is he an only child? Because if he is, maybe that partially explains it, like maybe his Mom still treats him like he’s her baby boy? 😀

        • N

          Actually, Joowon has an older brother who’s five year older than him. But he said in an interview that his mom always wanted a girl in the family, so Joowon sort of took on that role…as in helping mom, learning to cook, etc. So cute! <3

          He just seems like a very affectionate, down-to-earth kind of guy, which is very rare, so I'm glad he's just the way he is!

          • ally bell

            Yea…I really like that he’s down-to-earth and affectionate. It makes me think that he could be friends with anyone.And thats a part of his appeal and why people like him so much.

          • Maya

            Oh my, why does this story remind me of Uhm Tae Woong? 😀

          • Airyn

            Thanks for the info, N!

            @Maya: to quote JB and GF: And that is why they’re friends. LOL

    • 3.2 Quinze

      I don’t get it, why can’t he be so adorable at 25? I’m 25 and I sure as hell am not mature (I am where it counts but not outside of school!)
      Haha, he doesn’t strike me as immature but just…cute? Or am I missing something??

      • 3.2.1 quirkywhit

        You’re missing nothing, he’s adorable. 🙂

  4. Kelinci Biru

    Joo Won runs a marathon before? why am i not suprise? Kid, you need to lose or make a fool of yourself. You’re too good to be true.

  5. ~Feather~

    Aww. This episode seems so cute! I will be waiting for the subs to come out in 3 weeks. 🙂
    Joo won is just adorable. :3
    It’s strange that I’m younger than him, yet he acts younger than me.

    • 5.1 ~Feather~

      and we both like lemons!!!! (>.<)

  6. -K

    Where can I watch this subbed that doesn’t make me download the whole thing? Thanks.

    • 6.1 ~Feather~

      I watch on
      You will have to become a member but i thinks it’s worth it. You’ll also have to be patient since only one person is subbing it so you’ll have to wait for a few weeks(maybe 2-3).

      • 6.1.1 Airyn

        I think they just wait for it to come out on KBS World and they upload the subbed episode that airs there and that accounts for the delay. 🙂

        • ally bell

          I went on KBS World and couldn’t find it.Can you post a link please??

          • Arhazivory

            You wouldn’t find it there. Boo records it when it airs on her tv via the KBSW channel, then she does abracadabra and uploads it. There are other uploaded too on D-Addicts and Soompi but is the fastest because she puts it out shortly after it airs.

            It’s 3 weeks later that it airs.

          • george

            Thanks Kindaichi.It’s good to know if i missed it on a wednesday i still have friday.^__^

        • george

          I think so too.I just found out that here in HK,it airs on Wednesdays on KBS World.

          • kindaichi

            currently, kbsw airs it on sunday 5.20pm and repeats it on wednesday 4.50pm and friday 11.20pm (all at HK time)

  7. Noelle

    Yay! Off to read.

    • 7.1 Noelle

      OMG Joo Won is adorable.


    thanks for the recap… sweetttt…..

  9. Airyn

    Now that you girls have mentioned it, I’d love to see Joo-won in a crazy everyone-versus-one mission like what happened with Seung-gi! That’ll be fun to see. 🙂

  10. 10 Marika

    Thanks for the awesome recap!

    Joo Won is just more adorable than I thought was possible. I can’t think of him as being 25 years old. XD
    I can’t believe he just happily ate the lemon. O_o

    Su Guen, Tae Woong, and Joo Won make a great team with their weird love triangle. XD

    • 10.1 Airyn

      And it also feels like this is the stronger team. It’s the equivalent of Team Scary (Ji-won, Seung-gi, Tae-woong) from Season 1.

  11. 11 clover

    I love these recaps. Man, I can never find them to watch them though!

  12. 12 Stardust

    Weeeee Joo woooooon…. ♥ Lovely recap, as always!! =D

  13. 13 Brittni

    I love this show Joo won’s bromance with Tae woong is adorable 🙂 The lemon thing had me cracking up he was so calm about it like Ha this is yummy.

  14. 14 Ani

    Is it bad that even with all the cute and awesome going on I’m still aaaaaaaaaaaaall about Tae-hyun? Because I will forever love the man. And his hair changes makes him uber adorable. Love love love. <3

    • 14.1 miha

      Tae-hyun is this super duper funny ajussi, his laugh is contagious and it seems to me he is the first one from the new members who understood that it’s better to just go with the flow . But i still feel something is missing, i miss Eun Ji Won- i think somehow Taehyun’s character is similar to Ji won’s. But Ji Won had genius tactics. Back in the days they were not afraid to betray each other. I’m still waiting for someone to break this current situation where they are all aware of each others age. I loved the scene when Jong Min attacked Seung Woo with the pillows . I want more of that but without the blind fold. And Joo Won… this guy has potential. And if they are cutting his scenes in 1n2d to protect his Gaksital character that is just wrong. Or not? His aegyo voice is an “all kill”. Imagine Lee Kang To with that voice. Anyway, i’m liking it more and more, week by week. Even Bird PD- good job, hwaiting.

      • 14.1.1 Airyn

        I don’t believe they’re cutting his scenes to protect his character. It’s probably just because he feels the burden of being the maknae, and lets the hyungs take centerstage. It’s a factor of being too aware of everyone’s ages, as you pointed out. So when that happens, you don’t really get much interesting footage of him. I love when he does forget, though, like when he hid everyone else’s shoes so that he can get a headstart on the morning mission.

        • pst

          Ha ha! Omo! I remembered that, it was so evil but so funny!!

  15. 15 Ivoire

    Thank you for the recap!

  16. 16 nuna

    SiKyung & JooWon walking hand in hand?
    awwwww…how sweeeeeet is that?! XD

  17. 17 N

    Did anybody notice Joowon’s cute neck pillow in his van? It’s like a teddy bear with red lips on the corner LOL!

    • 17.1 Maya

      Awww, it’s so cute… I didn’t notice it before when I watch it because I was distracted by his watch. I read an article saying that it’s a limited edition, with only 500 items produced worldwide.

    • 17.2 Cindy

      seriously? i tot it was rilakkuma’s head with a heart shaped at the side O_O lol

  18. 18 April

    There aren’t enough OMGs in the world for my feelings about Joo Won and his hyungs tbh.

  19. 19 curi

    is he really the one who kissed UEE so manly???? 🙁

    but, i like this joo won tooo!!!

  20. 20 crazedlu

    i seriously laugh so hard while watching. do i need to? probably not, but they’re just too cute.

  21. 21 ck1Oz

    Thank you for the recap. I was laughing so much watching it yesterday.

    Joo Won could not possibly get more cute. Then he goes and holds hands with Shi Kyung, who is like my favourite singer. My fave singer and my aeygyo baby- be still my beating heart. Oh, and he has got to stop being so energetic. He is showing the ahjusshis up.

    Hang on. Has anyone claimed Joo Won yet? Just curious.

    “Aw, now I want everybody else to choose soybean, so we get another Seung-gi-on-his-own-trying-not-to-go-crazy mission.”

    Does anyone know what episode this is?

    • 22.1 Farpavilions

      I was curious too and the dramabeans search engine found it!

      Is it a bad sign I’ve lurking so much I could predict exactly which search terms to use and got it on the first try? (“Lee seung-gi + solo + mission”)

      • 22.1.1 Airyn

        LOVE this episode!

      • 22.1.2 jool

        Thank you! You rock 😛

    Joo Won is the biggest, big baby I have ever had the pleasure of watching. He’s just soooooooo cute with his hyungs! But when he goes on Gaksital mode… how it’s just one person giving us all those conflicting feels, I will never understand.

    this episode seems sooo cute!
    I love this show. The bromance is great.

    I wanted to give this variety show a try but anyone have any idea where I can watch w/ eng subs? And somewhere that updates frequently since I’m having trouble finding this episode?

    • 25.1 lili

      This episode is not subbed yet but you should go to this site :


      1N2D Season2

      It’s a paradise for any Joo Won fan 😀

      Hope it helps 🙂

      • 25.1.1 dany

        thank you 🙂

      • 25.1.2 MeeisLee

        Im a little late but thanks :).

    I have to ask: is the bromantic skinship done purely for variety purposes or do Korean guys do that?

    Here in Singapore I only ever see it between Indian/Bangladeshi men. Girls do it but if boys did it everyone’s gaydars would be on red alert!

    Don’t get me wrong, I love me the bromance esp all those manga hearts that appear on screen whenever maknae uses a hyung as bolster. 🙂

    • 26.1 DreamandWonder

      A friend of mine teaches at a boys school in Korea and she says it’s fairly normal for the boys to hold hands or sit on each other’s laps on the bus and whatnot, so I have to imagine it’s not really a big deal. I could obviously be wrong though, as my info is secondhand.

      • 26.1.1 Farpavilions

        That …. would be kind of amazing to see. Time to save up for my next holiday!! 🙂

    • 26.2 Kes

      Yup, it’s everywhere and it’s super cute. XD I love that guys have more freedom to show affection for each other here. I’ve seen plenty of hand-holding and headlocks and seat-sharing. Among older guys too. 😀 (on my first day here I heard a 50-something guy saying on his phone in Korean, “Hyuuuuung, I miss yoooou!~<3" Cute cute cute)

  27. 27 anabella

    omiiiii, our Joowon is super cute. I love to watch daddy SW hug his adapted son Joowon, lol.

    • 27.1 Airyn

      I noticed SW does that a lot! And he likes tousling JW’s hair and patting him on the head. So cute.

  28. 28 stars4u

    I read that it is because of Joo-won’s image in the drama that’s why his scenes are cut in 1N2D. He’s a big baby when he’s on the show.
    I eat bread with fillings just like Tae-woong!

    • 28.1 Maya

      Maybe because it will confuse the viewers with his character in Gaksital? I know I am one of them. Esp back in the ye golden days of him as that cop who kept screaming GAKSITAAAL! all the time 😀
      I think the reason is also similar as to why Lee Chun Hee quitted Family Outing. The viewers got used with his persona in there that it would be difficult for them to be fully on board with any (possibly) more serious character he played on drama. Like even a while after Family Outing ended and I tried to watch Conspiracy in the Court, I couldnt help but thinking of Chunderalla whenever he comes on the screen.

    • 28.2 Airyn

      So they really do this? I personally don’t have a problem with that kind of duality. I comment on it a lot, but say watching UTW on Equator Man knowing he’s so adorkable on 1N2D…that wasn’t a problem. I totally got into his Equator Man character. Same with Seung-gi when he did K2H. JW is a good enough actor that people actually get into his Gaksital character even though they know what he’s really like based on 1N2D (this seems to be true for a lot of the Gaksital viewers based on the message boards I go to.)

  29. 29 dany

    You guys made me discover this show, thank you!

  30. 30 Ingrid

    I love this episode because of he players! Yay! Joo Woon, Umh Tae Woong, Shikyung, Kim Seung Woo and etc….Wahahahaha. I can’t get enough of them!

  31. 31 dini

    is there any information for its special 400th episode from KBS? can’t wait to watch this variety show every week on (thankyou Jongmin oppa!) though without eng sub…… Honestly…am not a fan of korean drama, music or variety show , but 1N2D and RM are exceptional….loooooove them both!!!

  32. 32 Arhazivory

    Love it. Hehe, his hyungs threw him away. lol @ the love triangle and how cute was it that Joo Won changed his eating style with the bun? Hehe

    Thanks ladies.

  33. 33 Cindy

    Joo Wonnie!!! What should I do with you??? ARGH!!! SO CUTE <3

  34. 34 Adnap

    Thx! Cant wait till i get to watch! 3 weeks! I always wish someone love this show so much who can sub it right away. Oh well….Patience is a virtue… I guess…. Hee

  35. 35 Titi

    Did anyone watch Taewoong’s Winwin episode? It was like a meta episode! Seungwoo and Sugeun are the host, Jiwon, Jongmin and Joowon guested.
    Joowon practically declare his love for Taewoong there <33
    Joowon: "He is someone I want to be in the future."
    Cutie Joowon and Taewoong <33333

  36. 36 hi.

    OMG I love Joowon, he’s so adorable <3
    But i also love all the other members… Seungwoo is like the immature mat-hyung, Tae Woong the person who everyone thought was quiet but was surprisingly good at variety shows… Su Geun the variety master, Tae Hyun the bad-luck complainer. Shi-Kyung is the calm and smart person, Jong Min is Kim Sunbae. Joo Won is the maknae and makes everything cute @~@

  37. 37 skinnymocha

    Haha, I smoosh it and eat around the edges first too. Why wouldn’t you save the best for last?

    I wonder what Joo Won’s mum makes of Baker King and Gaksital…

  38. 38 dee

    Gosh… i really love this show! Thanks recaps.

  39. 39 MEalways

    Dearest girlfriday, thank you for the recap. I always looking forward to it.

    I wish they would not make Joo Won go, no matter how contradict his personality in the variety or drama/movie he is in. It just show how good he is as an actor/entertainer.

    Just like Tae Woong & Seung Woo. I love TW, especially when he acted in EM (minus his crazy hair). I love SW, especially in Iris. I love every actors with depth characters :). I watched JW since Baker King. He’s good & on the right direction on act.

    Although I realise that in K-entertainment industry, it is a heavily scripted ‘scene’ for every shows (I remember how Lee Sugeun once stated that the tired-est time was when he just finished entertain people, yet he has to fulfil an invitation – aka launching party/wedding party… etc…), and we may not know if their personality is as close as it shows in 2D1N, I just happy to see them a bit loosen up and enjoy several good moments.

    Although… dive to cold water in harsh condition (when it snows, when it rains heavily, when they are not in top condition….) and still smile…

    Well… I will savour their effort to the best!
    Thank you all in 2D1N with all +- 100 staffs, you all always make my weekend so, so, so much brighter…

    Wish you all success and long, long, long happy broadcasts…

    Ooo MG!!! Yes please for 1N2D, don’t stop recapping! I luuve JW and TW bromance! And shikyung persona, waiting for every funny taehyun moments.

  42. 42 emp

    Hey everyone, just wondering if you can help me out on something. In the near beginning of the episode, where I believe it starts at 8:24 – 9:07 is a Korean song being played out (the scene where everyone jumps while saying “1 Night 2 Days!”). I would really appreciate it if someone helped me find out what that song is. I’ve been trying to look everywhere for it and it seems like an impossibility. 🙁 Help this poor girl out please!

  43. 43 sam

    missing seunggi on 1n2d…glad the new season is working out

  44. 44 frumbie

    does anyone know the song that played while they’re going through the tunnel? thanks!
