EPISODE 423. Broadcast on January 27, 2013.

girlfriday: New trip! The boys walk up together, and get told that this trip will be a Winter Break History Special. Dark clouds all around.

javabeans: Jong-min quips that Tae-hyun is bad at history, and for a split second you think he’s gonna get his head bitten off for offending his hyung, only to have Tae-hyun add that he’s beyond bad, that history all but doesn’t exist for him. Said the guy in the currently airing sageuk.

girlfriday: Maybe he only knows comic book history.

javabeans: He should be glad all his sageuk jobs have been fantasy.

girlfriday: But could you imagine Cha Tae-hyun in a straight non-fusiony non-comical one?

javabeans: I’m cringing already at the thought. Awkward, awkward, awkward. Either that or he would somehow turn it into a comedy, just with his delivery.

girlfriday: Yep, that’s what I’m picturing. The director going, Wait, when did this turn into a comedy? Uh, the minute you cast that guy. Anyway, it turns out the boys are walking into a palace for the opening. They start out by congratulating Tae-woong on his wedding (He must’ve just returned from his honeymoon at this point.) and he’s all smiles.

javabeans: He has this air of innocence that’s so adorable as he says that his wife made him breakfast this morning, and he was all, So that’s how the marrieds live, how sad for the rest of you. And Tae-hyun is all, dude, don’t talk, I had to make my own breakfast today!

girlfriday: And then Jong-min asks about their First Night, all wink-wink and er…. pelvic thrusts?

javabeans: Omg. I’m so secondhand-embarrassed for him. Is that his idea of subtle innuendo? I love Tae-woong’s reply, which is the very dry, “Sorry to burst your bubble, but we’ve already got a kid.”

girlfriday: Ha. Su-geun welcomes Tae-woong officially onto the Marrieds Team, and the rest of them all sigh that he’s not really all that helpful, at least for the winning.

javabeans: Jong-min and Tae-hyun mention the bit that ended the last trip, when Tae-hyun betrayed Jong-min to take his train ticket home and earned himself a bunch of anti-fans and angry netizen reactions. So today, he promises to stick right by Jong-min’s side so that he can react specifically to him the whole time. Haha. That’s… actually a pretty good way to make it up to him, if we’re talking in a meta sense about concentrating all your variety energy on one person and giving them extra airtime.

girlfriday: Yeah it’s like Variety Dollars. Laughs are the golden ticket. He also adds that he’ll take one of Jong-min’s punishments in his place, but the offer expires today. So Jong-min basically has to lose something big today for it to be worth it.

javabeans: You can tell how much Jong-min likes this idea, and he promises to try to forgive him. Of course, then Bird wryly points out that he thinks they’d both lose today (making that offer not much of an offer).

girlfriday: Bird says that today they’re going to tour Baekje historical treasures, and promises to keep the learning at their level. Shi-kyung gets all offended, and the boys tell him to look to his left and right — at Jong-min and Joo-won, who look terrified. Hee. It’s gonna be a rough day for the Bachelors.

javabeans: Lol. When Bird tells them where they are right now, Jong-min nods all knowledgeably and pretends to read the hanja on the gate, only to be told that’s not what it says. We haven’t even begun the game yet and he’s digging himself a hole!

girlfriday: Heh, I love that Tae-hyun’s really laughing at Jong-min’s terrible jokes and bad gags even when no one else is. They take a walk inside the palace, and then suddenly Su-geun asks Tae-woong if he could take a time machine back or forward to any time, where would he go? Seung-woo pipes up from behind: “Before his wedding.” Hee, it’s only been two weeks!

javabeans: The other marrieds all joke that they’d say the same (may as well all die together?), but Tae-hyun says he’d choose his first year of high school: “That’s when I met her. I’d go to a different school.” Pwahaha. And also, do you WANT a beating?

girlfriday: Lol.

javabeans: But also, totally sweet that he married his high school sweetheart.

girlfriday: I know, it’s adorable. He’s often said in interviews though that other people think it’s so cute that he got to marry his first love, but he thinks he was kinda dumb not to date anyone else ever. Ha.

javabeans: Isn’t it one of those things where if you had more experiences, the first is all romantic? But then if you only had the one, you’re like, uh, is this all there is? You can’t know from the other side, which is why the grass is always greener I guess.

girlfriday: I suppose you could be that one particularly lucky bastard who left your first love to date a bunch of other people, and then your first love takes you back in the end? Eh, grass is grass, that’s what I say.

javabeans: Jong-min says a few random boring things about history (like how it’s important) just to make Tae-hyun have to react to them, which basically proves the point that Tae-hyun can make anything sound interesting. Even if it’s literally, “You’re quite right, history IS important!”

girlfriday: They finally reach the end of their walk and Bird explains their lunch bokbulbok game: a war between Silla and Baekje, kind of like capture the flag except each side has to protect its king from… getting his beard taken? I don’t know what that means, but they bring out cards for everyone to random-draw their teams. It’ll be 3:3 with one player who can swing either way, based on either team finding the hidden trigger to bring him onto their side. Tae-hyun grumbles at the random draw, saying that if Su-geun, Shi-kyung, and Joo-won end up on the same team, they might as well not even play.

javabeans: So, the result of the card draw: On Team Baekje are Shi-kyung, Su-geun, and Joo-won. LOL. Tae-woong is the free radical and Team Silla is Seung-woo, Jong-min, and Tae-hyun. Seung-woo complains at Tae-hyun for saying something that became true, ha.

girlfriday: Hahaha. He did totally jinx it.

javabeans: I love that this game requires ALL the members (playing generals and kings) to attach fake beards.

girlfriday: Oh so THAT’s what they meant. Literal beards. Ha. And ow.

javabeans: LOL. Way to be literal. Now I’m picturing Neanderthals running around claiming supremacy by pulling each others’ facial hair. The guys are all equipped with chest-cams, to make sure we get our clear shot of the beard-grabs.

girlfriday: They start by staying in their respective corners, busy searching for the radishes to claim Tae-woong for their team.

javabeans: It cracks me up how literal that is. The word “kkagdugi” means radish kimchi cut into cubes, but it’s also the word to denote the random third/fifth wheel, the unmatched person. So to claim Tae-woong the kkagdugi, they have to find the kkagdugi.

girlfriday: It’s hilarious. Also that the decoy boxes are filled with OTHER kinds of radishes. Ha. Shi-kyung finds the real kkagdugi first, and he and Joo-won each take a bite before claiming Tae-woong. Man, could this team get any stronger? I feel like they should get some kind of handicap or something.

javabeans: Except this game was totally randomly set up so it’s just their lucky day, huh? Sadly (?) I think Tae-hyun’s punishment pinch-hit is just gonna go to waste. Team Silla just isn’t competitive enough, whereas Team Baekje is totally competitive in everything. Figures they’d get arranged this way.

girlfriday: But then, Team Silla gets a lucky break. Seung-woo and Jong-min discover the Baekje king stuck in a well, all by himself without his generals.

javabeans: Attack, attack! Jong-min climbs on top of Su-geun in the well, and Su-geun huddles to himself shouting for rescue. Jong-min reaches around to grab the beard… and is suddenly yelping in pain. Ha, did he get bitten?

girlfriday: Ow. And also, how is he sitting on top of Su-geun and yet somehow still losing?

javabeans: Ha, they all but have Su-geun handed over on a silver platter, yet they decide they’ll have to wait for Su-geun’s reinforcements to come, and THEN grab his beard. What? Why can’t you just overpower him now? He is a tiny, tiny man. I know he’s nimble like a monkey but you can take him.

girlfriday: I think they’re planning to use him as bait, but that doesn’t seem like the best idea, against Joo-won and Shi-kyung.

javabeans: Watching Jong-min continue to try to grab Su-geun in his tiny prison and failing repeatedly actually reminds me a lot of myself on Cat Vet Day. Silla king Tae-hyun hides himself in a small room, while Joo-won dashes by and sees the shenaniganery going on in the well. He joins in and reaches in to try to grab Jong-min’s beard, so Seung-woo is left to try to come and save Jong-min, and then Tae-woong attacks Seung-woo from behind… It’s the craziest game of cat-mouse-cat-mouse-cat. Or is it cat-mouse-mouse-mouse-mouse?

girlfriday: I dunno, but there’s a whole lot of grabby beard-pulling and painful screams. Joo-won actually yanks Jong-min by the hair, and when that doesn’t work, they get Su-geun to climb out of the well by stepping on top of Jong-min. Ha. And then once they get their king out, Tae-woong covers up the well with Jong-min still inside. He thinks they’ve left him like that, but it turns out Joo-won is hanging back, waiting for him to peek out… and he nabs Jong-min’s beard from behind.

javabeans: Tae-woong spots a glimpse of the Silla king’s robes peeking around the corner and giddily catches up to Tae-hyun….’s VJ, wearing his outfit. HA. He’s actually around the corner wearing his regular clothing, leaving his VJ out as the bait. Too bad for him that Shi-kyung is right there to chase him down.

girlfriday: He manages to pull his towel for a timeout, and the teams gather for another bokbulbok where the kings have to take turns cracking eggs on their foreheads. Only two out of the ten eggs are raw, so the odds are pretty good that you won’t get egged. But of course Tae-hyun gets a raw one on the first try. They can’t believe his (bad) luck, and offer him the chance to revive both his generals if he can manage to find the other raw one. He picks one… and it’s raw! Dude, he really does have the most predictable bad luck.

javabeans: I wonder if that means he was trying to pick the raw one, or the cooked one that time. Because it’s only bad luck if it screws you over! Still, at least this gets the Silla team another chance at the game, and the chase resumes. Jong-min separates from his team to draw the others in, and he starts taunting Shi-kyung like a little kid at recess, sticking out his tongue and challenging him to a one-on-one fight. Nearby, his teammates lie in wait as Shi-kyung gets separated from his pack. But Shi-kyung’s smart enough to suspect the ambush and calls in his team, so now everyone’s there, all “Uh… now how do we do this?”

girlfriday: Suddenly Tae-hyun jumps out from his hiding spot and grabs Tae-woong from behind. Ha, I love that his line of defense is to suck on his own beard, while grabbing at Tae-woong’s. He’s out, and then all hell breaks loose.

javabeans: All of a sudden there are beards flying everywhere, ha. Joo-won gets out, and so does Jong-min, leaving two on each team still alive. It’s hilarious: You have Shi-kyung, Tae-hyun, Seung-woo, and Su-geun basically in a circle, running around trying to get each other. It’s like a dinky video game.

girlfriday: It’s even more hilarious that Tae-hyun’s costume makes him look like a boxer, and he’s jumping around and swishing back and forth all by himself, like a loon.

javabeans: Finally Tae-hyun gets his beard pulled, which means it’s time to eat. Aw, that lunch table is so sad. One is laden with steaming bowls of soup and kimchi dishes, and the other… has one plate with three balls of rice.

girlfriday: That is truly the saddest lunch ever.

javabeans: You know, it would have been bad enough if they gave them three bowls of rice. But to see them shaped as these plain lumps makes it even more pathetic. Maybe it is just that sad that Bird offers them the prop kimchi as a side dish.

girlfriday: Prop kimchi is better than nuthin’. After lunch the boys board the bus and Bird PD hands them history books to study on the way. Hm, this does not bode well.

javabeans: Heh, we get captions describing the types of students here. Shi-kyung is the focused and studious model student. Su-geun is the one who looks over at what you’re doing instead of studying his own stuff. Jong-min is the one who has no idea how to study even with the materials in front of him. And Tae-woong is the one who falls asleep as soon as he’s got the book in hand.

girlfriday: Heh, it’s fun to imagine what these guys were like in high school. They reach their first stop and after looking around, Bird offers them a chance to grab anything they want from the snack box for each quiz question they get right. What the… Tae-hyun gets both of them right? What happened to Mr. I’m So Weak at History?

javabeans: They’re all surprised, but Tae-hyun whines that Bird was too insulting with his exclamation of “What gives?” Ha.

girlfriday: They go to a museum next, and look around on their own. Tae-hyun sees a funny looking urinal and giggles to himself as he tells Jong-min it’s for drinking.

javabeans: Lol, I love that it comes up on the quiz too. After more time to study the exhibits, Bird administers another round of questions… and Tae-hyun wins again! Three in a row! Whaaaa?

girlfriday: Is it opposite day? At their last stop, Bird PD offers up the entire snack box for one final winner… of a story contest? He gives them a list of words they have to include, like a few artifacts and sights from today, “Bird PD,” “bokbulbok,” and in English: “Put your hands up.” Er?

javabeans: I guess it IS a lot of prize to give for an easy question. There’s quite a lot of good stuff in there, lots of chocolates and sausage sticks and such. They all take their papers and settle down to write, furrowed eyebrows and game faces on. Why do I feel like Jong-min’s is just going to be a string of keywords linked by prepositions?

girlfriday: Surrounded by “Wow~” and exclamation points? Yeah. Shi-kyung, on the other hand, gets all into it, deciding his is going to be a masterpiece. This is going to be embarrassing for everyone, isn’t it?

javabeans: We can only hope. And you know how competitive he gets with food on the line. On the other hand, Tae-hyun’s starts out, “The soju I drank yesterday…” Hahaha. So then they gather to read theirs aloud, to be judged by each other, with high and low scores thrown out. Joo-won goes first, and… omg. He’s actually challenging Bird. It’s in letter format, all forceful and declarative: What’s with all these Specials? Are we some quiz program? It’s actually a really good incorporation of all the terms.

girlfriday: Not bad. It incorporates all the words pretty naturally, and has the added bonus of getting on Bird’s bad side.

javabeans: They all lowball the scoring and he averages 4s, with a total score of 23, but maybe the others will be equally low. LOL. Jong-min’s starts out, “WOW~!” Did you call it or what?

girlfriday: Hahahaha. His turns into this nonsensical dialogue, for some unknown reason.

javabeans: Jong-min’s written assignments always make me giggle, and yet also make me feel vaguely worried for him. Like we’re getting a raw glimpse inside his head, and it’s concerning. It’s this stream-of-consciousness narrative, written in present tense: “I come to the shoot. Wow! It’s Joo-won! Wow! Put your hands up! Joo-won gets into the car! I try to follow! He’s too fast!” It’s hilarious and really sad.

girlfriday: But omg, I think Shi-kyung actually has it worse, in that he’s taken the assignment TOO seriously, and the hyungs all die laughing even though he’s trying to be poetic and sincere.

javabeans: My skin is crawling. It’s actually good and literary sounding, but it’s ALL WRONG. I can’t listen. Make it stop.

girlfriday: Why is it that there’s nothing more embarrassing than someone being too sincere on a variety show?

javabeans: Tae-hyun’s is really funny, in exactly the right way. It’s a cute, witty story about a day in the life of 1N2D. It’s good because you can’t quite pick out all the keywords: “The soju I drank yesterday and the radish kimchi / Today without fail churn in my insides / If only I hadn’t lost at bokbulbok / I could have eaten that meat / Upon hearing the words ‘Put your hands up’ / Why did I listen? / Is my head truly made of stone? / No, it’s a stone pagoda head / I drank with Bird PD and Princess Sunhwa / But where have they gone? / They have left me all alone / Those traitors / If I catch them I will burn incense / on that burner / Ah, today again I am screwed”

girlfriday: Dude, Su-geun’s is hilarious. He purposely uses the expectation that he’d write something silly, and turns it around to write a sincere-sounding love letter to Princess Sunhwa. Only, his delivery is still Su-geun, so it’s a crack-up. He gives this theatrical reading of the love letter, ending in a hip-hop refrain, “Everybody put your hands up! When I say Sun-hwa! You say Princess!” Hahaha.

javabeans: Tae-woong starts off with another corny pun about Buddha putting his hands up in the air (like he just don’t care?). So cheesy. But he works in some sweet praise about his beautiful wife, which wins him a few points.

girlfriday: The pun is definitely that story’s crowning achievement.

javabeans: The scoring is totally wonky since it’s kinda random and given on a whim, but under these scores Tae-woong wins rights to the snack box. Though they’re all sharing, right? So was that a pointless exercise? (Other than the humiliation, I mean, which I guess makes it not quite pointless.)

girlfriday: Humiliation is never pointless.

javabeans: That’s it for the day, as they head over to their basecamp for the night. They’ll be staying at the generations-old house of a famous family (whose lineage includes Queen Inhyun and Empress Myungsung)… where they’ll play ridiculous games for silly prizes, of course. Way to keep everything in perspective.

    thanks for the recap….

  2. DAEBAK!

    yay! Thank you thank you thank you hehe

  3. DayDreamer

    Thanks for the recaps. Love this show a lot. The dialogue about the inner workings of Jongmin’s head reminds me of the Win Win episode I watched a day ago where Jongmin was the guest and one segment of it was spent pondering on whether Jongmin actually is this fool-like character with his random ramblings and stuttering and exaggerated exclamations and whatnot. I think it’s (from what I saw on that episode) probably a product of his head injury and the need to overcompensate humor because of the backlash he had received from netizens in the past.

    Aside from that, there didn’t seem to be much action from Seungwoo in the recap (watching the episode might reveal otherwise). I feel a little disappointed since he’s grown on to me very favorably and I like to see and read about his antics too.

    Joo Won (my absolute darling *blush*) seems to have this feisty nature in him that he doesn’t reveal much because he’s more quiet and action-oriented (to win the missions) but it’s always interesting to see him get feisty. Hope it shows out more. 😛

    Anyways, can’t wait until the subs are out.

    • 3.1 dewaanifordrama

      I second anything that shows feisty Joo Won!

      • 3.1.1 DayDreamer

        Are you Indian? Haha, I only ask because you have deewani in your name.

        • thejawavillager

          haha, omg I asked her the same thing when I first cyber-met her! I’ll very helpfully tell you that she’s South African and loves Bollywood. 🙂

          • DayDreamer

            Ha! That was helpful indeed. Ironically, I’m Indian but not too fond of Bollywood myself. There’s only a few gems out there but otherwise, I stay away from it. 😛

          • DayDreamer

            Btw, I just checked your website and noticed your post on Humsafar. I freaking LOVED that drama. It was my first Pakistani drama but it was really good. Fell in love with Fawad Khan. 🙂

        • Nina

          I’m Indian! And Bollywood has had some good moments…but im head over heels for Korean dramas. Idk why, but they just appeal to me more. Their acting is on par compared to the “over the top”, dramatic Indian soap operas! Lol 🙂

          And Joo-won!! And his cutie beard. Look at him tryna act like a man~ haha

          • JIW_sobangnim

            I was as usual reading recaps for 1D2N (the best variety ever!) and then the comments, and WOW!

            Sorry much off topic but HEY! I am 100% Chinese (a lil Jap) girl which TOTALLY adores BOLLYWOOD! 😛

            Unusual for a Chinese person to love Bollywood actually from where I am from, but I can’t stop from loving it!
            Hrithik Roshan is my Bias <3 And not forgetting the one that pulled my into the world, Bhadshah SRK 🙂

            LOL (OFFTRACKED)

            Thanks for the awesome recaps! I absoulutely adore SSK previously for his gentleman soft image, but NOW, LOL, he sure grants laughs for being TOO REAL.
            As for JongMin, he really is pretty the laughing stock,nice that he is not getting angry (imagine if it was SSk instead)! And my absolute CTH <3 <3 <3 He is JUST too funny! Truly entertaining. As for JOOWON , I am really enjoying his character transformation (took long enough) He is showing more of the bad-ass side (Gaksital influence?) and dares to defy the Hyungs and the Jaejak Team 😛 I really find it fun (Just like how Seung Gi truly turned from the nice obliging guy to the hodang that he is known for today 😛 )

            I believe this season is really getting up to shape! And judging from the ratings, it certainly is! If only Seung Gi and Ho Dong took over the Qualifications of Men slot, maybe in general, the ratings for Happy Sunday would be the PRIME again! But individually, 1D2N DOES beat Running Man (no hates please? 🙂 ) Just a major fan of this wonderful show 🙂

    • 3.2 Ann

      I think you are quite right about Jong Min. I am a speech/language pathologist, and Jong min has classic speech and language disorder symptoms. His head injury almost surely affected his speaking and thinking skills. It probably also affected his impulsivity, which is why he so often speaks before he thinks. But he does come up with some very sweet and deep comments every once in a while.

      • 3.2.1 DayDreamer

        I’m not a speech/language pathologist but one psychology class definitely made me think the same when he was describing his head injury on Win Win and how he seemed blank and had a bit of personality change. Reminded me of that guy from American history who had a rod go through his skull and behind his left eye (or something like that) and had a personality change because of it.

        Even though I feel quite bad that he seems to really have problems because of the injury, I still find his personality lovable. I can see how others can get annoyed by him at times (ie, Shikyung) but I think he shouldn’t be taken too seriously given his history.

    • 3.3 S a r a h

      Hello there! Where do you watch this? With subs, I mean?

      Please and thank you!

      • 3.3.1 insha

        Boo Says!:)

    • 3.4 thejawavillager

      Why oh why would you read the recap first and watch the episode later??? (In my defense, I just skimmed over it. I’m currently on the 13th episode of season 2 and wanted to know if there have been any ‘evolutions’ in any of the guys’ characters.)

      • 3.4.1 DayDreamer

        I normally also don’t read recaps before watching episodes because then I end up not watching the episode and just accepting the recap as if I had watched it. However, for 1N2D, it helps that the subs are about 3 weeks late so by the time the episode is subbed, the details are a bit hazy for me and I enjoy remembering by watching it then.

      • 3.4.2 Izzu

        Well, it helps a bit if you’re watching the raws and wanna know what the basic gist of the episodes while waiting for the subs

  4. dewaanifordrama

    Thanks for the recap! ~ I always look forward to the 1 Night 2 Days recaps. They always make me laugh out loud. Seriously, how do they come up with these challenges?

    • 4.1 Dominique

      Earlier today, I caught a show of male athletic team competition on KBS2 (something about a Dream Team), not unlike 1 Night 2 Days.

      I loved it. The competitors were young and hot (not a single fuzzy body or face). They were toned, good looking and even mysterious. The obstacle challenges were real, the running commentaries were a lot less assinine than the ones in 1N2D, and the show was so briskly paced that no one had time to sit around yakking and gabbing.

      Then I saw a preview of an upcoming Korean movie, about three high school boys reuniting many years later for one final mixed martial arts fight to death. I am hooked.

      • 4.1.1 Titi

        Oh great. The troll appears again. Can you please ban her, please, java? :3

        • DayDreamer

          She’s entitled to her opinion…even if it seems she doesn’t like most of the shows, heh.

          • fuzzoff

            might be a he

      • 4.1.2 queen

        Sounds like Dream Team S2, which frankly in my opinion needs a different editing team, they need to pull their s*** together and stop with the endless angle by angle shot whenever someone competes or finishes the race because it’s not suspenseful anymore and it gets really annoying!

        I mean, seriously? Do we need a gazillion shots of Ricky hitting the buzzer when we know that he’s actually gonna we win? So predictable!

        • warren_john

          ^^^THIS! I agree a lot, Dream Team has gotten annoying lately, at first I didn’t notice it because I just started watching but when I marathon-ed the whole Season 2, I was literally shouting at my screen, whenever someone does something exciting, we get endless repeats of it from different camera angles!!! Aaaarrrrggghhh!

      • 4.1.3 warren_john

        You’re entitled to your own opinion but what’s the point of comparing 2D1N to other shows that are completely different from it? 2D1N was never a show about athletic competition and it wasn’t a show about guys who are young, goodlooking and toned(even thought you have to admit 2D1N guys are goodlooking and hot).

        Just FYI, there’s a thread in soompi where you could have written your opinion!!!:) Good day to you.

      • 4.1.4 lemonade candy

        “not unlike 1 Night 2 Days.”


        dafuq are you trying to say, kid?

  5. okdubu

    omg dying at your commentary about how seeing the inside of jongmin’s head is concerning….

    this episode wasn’t that fun for me – watching the beard game made me suddenly feel like I was watching running man.

    soogeun and taehyun totally delivered on their writing assignments though. hoping for more shenanigans tomorrow!

  6. ika

    for me,his not a fool or a genius.he just jongmin.

    • 6.1 zekwana

      Love love JM!!

    • 6.2 thejawavillager

      ‘just jongmin’ hehe, so true! He’s a category of his own.

    • 6.3 george

      I second the motion.He truly is just Jongmin.

      • 6.3.1 george

        Or rather,i third the motion.keke.Jongmin…,you can’t help it but love him.True,he doesn’t fit in any category.He is his own.

  7. redfox

    Shi Kyung ended up nothing but very embarrassing in both the beard fight and the writing. but he is still adorable. he is like this super-earnest kind of hero.
    and woah Joo Won, you were really bold weren´t you. I thought Bird will come peck on you.

    I did not get all that much history from this history-themed show though

  8. Sintia

    Thank you!
    I loved Joo Won’s protest. I would give him 10 from 10 🙂

  9. Hubba_Hubba

    Oh my God, Jongmin, you can’t just ask people how their first night was on national television!

    • 9.1 Hubba_Hubba

      That Mean Girls reference was just begging me to write it I couldn’t resist. I remember he said something like coming back to variety after his military stint was hard because he got so much hate from the netizens. I’m glad they jumped to his defense this time.. even if they only did it because they like to hate and not because they actually like Jongmin. Maybe they do like him but its kind of hard to tell with those netizens.

  10. 10 Gaeina Lee

    When Bird PD said it’s a History Special, I cheered in my head: “Yayyy! That funny yet serious professor will appear in S2!”… Sadly, no, he is not. I do want to see how that wise professor interact with the new members.

    From this episode, the best moment for me is when SG told SSK that it’s not directed to him, but to the persons next to him.. His facial comic expression with JM is sooo priceless! They’re so in sync in that moment, I saw the glimpse of understanding, connection and friendship in them which rarely shown.. ♥

    I enjoyed your comments about Taehyun and his lack of dating experience! I married my high school sweetheart, but we broke up before I went to college so I had time to have a little fun before we got back together after college. Then I could appreciate him again!

    Taehyun explained on his Win Win interview that his wife doesn’t wake up in the morning, so he always has to get his own breakfast!

      …and remember in the train ep, when they were showing their lunch boxes, he joyfully exclaimed that his wife actually woke up early for the first time in a very long time just to make his lunch!!:)

    CTH n utw not so chummy these days?

      I’ve noticed that about Taehyun. He doesn’t always show it, but from time to time you could still see his soft spot for Taewoong. I just LOVE it.

      I also think he’s growing rly closer to Jongmin…then again TH gets along well with everybody.

      In production, everybody has to show equal footage.
      Thus I believe, as it was more of a TH and JM day, the TW and TH line would be less obviously shown. (compared to the JW TW line = ALWAYS during Sleeping BBB. You can see them snuggling beside each other too frequently 🙂 )

  25. 25 chichiri

    LOL i remember that episode in season1, the radio-talk-show episode where they had to come up with this storyline, and Jong-min’s was this wordfart of his stream of consciousness. Haha! Even Seung-gi was laughing his head off

    • 25.1 ajj

      I remember that he he just basically said he hit his head when he was young LOl. oooh I miss Seung gi all of a sudden.

      • 25.1.1 chichiri

    Thanks for the hilarious recap babes!
    I was actually worried for season 2 in the beginning but guess it was all for nothing!
    Season 1 may be endearing but Season 2 is definitely not lacking in terms of the crankiness and laugh factor. Many of the games left my family and I in stitches, I actually laughed till I cried during the olympics games episode!

    Also Bird PD may be funnier than he may care to admit.
    Gosh it has only been a year but the new cast has already grown on me…
    Although I still love the oldies like JM and TW too!
    And yay to the catchphrase of the day “Put ya hands up!”
    xoxo (:

    Just watched it in KBS World, another great ep, and it really was Taehyun’s day, the first half was awful for him, he smashed 2 raw eggs on his forehead and he didn’t get to eat a proper lunch but the latter half turned things around, he won all the quiz games and it was so hilarious when he started reacting to all Jong min’s not-so-funny comments, just proves that he can make everything hilarious!!!

    • 29.1 thil28

      hi, oppa! r u from m’sia, by any chance? i just watched the rerun of this hilarious episode, was ROFL during the ‘beard wars’!
      and the essays they wrote, were really, really funny in the meant to be and also not meant to be way…hehehe…felt so bad for CTH at the beginning too, and then the way it turned around for him, wah, not bad, he managed to get all the answers correct, for a nice change! such a fun episode, even thought i had read the recaps briefly weeks ago. cant wait for the olympics themed episode later.

    This ep reminded me a lot of running man. Old village to run around in, beards = nametags, even the graphics of graying out the non bearded.

    Think Joo-Won is being more bold after getting that soot for new years? It’s like he was waiting for permission to be bold. But i still love his aegyo.

    Saw this episode last night on kbsworld.

    No one seems to notice before the start of the race to rip of the King’s beards,Gag Concert,gagman Kim Jun Hyeon did a little narration.Would be cool if he narrated the entire thg but yea i would liked to listen to 1n2d cast members.

    Another great episode.Cha Tae Hyun really has the worst luck.Must try split up Joo Won and Shi Kyung they cant be on the same team.

  32. 32 far

    aww, joowon is the most quiet in this episode. i’ve always wondered how he would be if he gets angry, but i think i get to see it in this episode. he barely talks that for a moment i even forget he’s in the show coz he doesnt appear that much.

    and when he wrote the essay, i can tell he’s definitely speaking his mind about being angry with the quizzes. aww~ i just want to give him a bear hug~ he’s right though, about the quizzes. they’re not a quiz show, and they’re not much when asked to answer quizzes only.

    I am disappointed that Tae-hyun didn’t keep his word to Jongminy. He was all sincere that he would make it up to him about stealing his train ride. Then when the next episode starts Tae-hyun throws Jongmin under the bus but giving him wrong info about the artifact. I don’t see that as variety show humor but more lack of character. CTH should have given Jongmin all his winnings. It’s one thing to pick on a co-star once and a while but Jongmin is being bullied and I don’t like it!
