Classic 1N2D hijinks in New Journey to the West

The first teaser is out for Na PD’s new experimental web variety show New Journey to the West, starring former 1 Night 2 Days members Kang Ho-dong, Lee Seung-gi, Lee Su-geun, and Eun Ji-won on a 5-day reunion trip to China. The series will be aired online via Naver TVcast, and the teaser opens with Kang Ho-dong asking, “What’s an internet broadcast? What are you going to do with the internet? I feel like I’m going to shoot the show but not be able to watch it. I have to be able to watch myself, right?”

Ji-won adds that his dad was excited about them reuniting for a new show and asked where he could watch it. Ji-won: “You can’t. Dad, you can’t watch it.” LOL. I’m glad I’m not the only one wondering how everyone will watch this show, because conceptually I like the idea (and the freedom) of new media, but yunno, will my grandma be able to watch the show? The teaser follows up with the caption: “Pleeeease tell your parents how to watch this show.”

I’m glad to see that the trip isn’t just them sightseeing (because what would be the fun of that?), and they’re back to playing games for food in classic 1N2D fashion. The boys endlessly tease Ho-dong for doing things the old way, and Su-geun spends a lot of time being punished in various ways like being electrocuted, or my favorite — suggesting a punishment haircut and then being the one to lose.

The show plays on the narrative from the Chinese novel Journey to the West, in which a monk leads three characters on a pilgrimage to atone for their sins. Seung-gi plays the monk, of course, and even when he’s stuffing his face with food, the captions say it’s because he’s worried about the three disciples in his care.

Ji-won seems exactly the same as always, picking fights with Na PD over game rules: “You didn’t say 1, 2, 3 and THEN ddeng!” and getting hit so often by Ho-dong that he starts feeling phantom pains when he knows he’s about to be hit. Ho-dong says that he’s going to pretend the cameras aren’t there and just enjoy the trip with the guys, which I don’t think he’s actually capable of, but okay.

Seung-gi asks Na PD, “You’re not going to not feed us this time or anything, right?” Cut to: Na PD slooooowly enjoying a delicious dish in front of Ji-won, who watches and gripes, “Do you really have to eat in front of me?” Heh. And at the end of the teaser, Su-geun sees a man eating street food and asks, “How do you say, ‘just one bite’ in Chinese?”

The captions say that they’ll: “Run like Running Man, exercise like Neighborhood Variety Sports, and sightsee like Youths Over Flowers. We don’t know exactly what it is, but we hope it’s funny. Real makjang action adventure.” I mostly get a Youths Over Flowers vibe from the show, since it’s pretty much four longtime friends on a budget backpacking trip. And I don’t think lacking for funny will be a problem.

New Journey to the West premieres September 4 online via Naver TVcast.

Looks like so much fun, man I'm so excited!!! Lee Seung Gi (Xuanzang), Kang Ho Dong (Zhu Bajie), Eun Ji Won (Sha Wujing), Lee Su Geun (Sun Wukong), I find it funny that SeungGi althought the maknae is the leader here (aka monk), but then again, he was the real ahjusshi of the 1st season of 1N2D and MC Mong and Ji Won said they felt he was the hyung among them.

Can't wait ♥

It actually makes sense, the 3 demons (Bajie, Wujing and Wukong) are very old, Xuanzang - the only human being in the group is the youngest.

I absolutely adored the charming 2D1N cast (as well as the second cast, it got hard to track when Haejin and Seungwoo left) and I was really looking forward to this! This looks really fun!

They are great together. So excited to see it. From what I gathered everyone is getting shocked but Seunggi and I think he won the first morning mission since he's chowing down. Now I think he can't end the show without some suffering though haha....

I still wish this was on TV, but I get why they aren't doing it. People can't whine about some of the cast being on their TV. They actually have to go out of their way to go watch it. Doesn't mean some people aren't going to complain anyway though.

I'm sure this will be subbed. Already I've seen some of Seung Gi's fans talking about who will sub it! :)

But in the meantime, if you want to watch it (and contribute to the viewcount) then use the hola better internet extension.

Holy crap. Whomever did that teaser did an amazing job. Watched it without subs. Watched it with the subs. I'd probably watch it five more times. Seriously. Awesome, fun teaser that makes me wish I could watch it right away. I really hope there's going to be subs of this somewhere!

hear ye...hear ye...the guys are back....
It was incredulously hilarious...i was rofl after watching the teaser and note it's just a teaser.
And i even forgot that it doesn't have any sub..i understand their action better than all the words they are spurting...

But I TOTALLY HATE TVN+NAVER for restricting the show on korea only.
I already check it but it said exclusively on South Korea on naver.

But then YAHOOOOOOO there will always be good fans OUT there..
I am really shouting out PLEASE help us for all the episode to come out.

This guys i miss them so much ever since 1n2d s1 finally they are together.

and of course the cast and crew never fails in editing...
well done....CLAPS CLAPS CLAPS...

Really? That's a lie, right? No.... T.T

So then, In (SUPER GREAT HEROIC)fans we trust! Lol.

I mean if they're going for online, why not take full advantage, right? They're missing out the opportunity to cater to the international market.
