Lee Soo Geun, Uhm Tae Woong, Kim Jong Min Expected to Stay for "1N2D Season 2"


I’ll be honest, the amount of stories about “1 Night, 2 Day Season 2” is borderline excessive. It’s understandable though, since we are talking about the 2nd season for one of the most successful variety shows in Korean history. And as we gradually inch towards the start of the 2nd season, one of the most asked questions are being answered. Following our article about who is expected to stay on for the new season, more solid information is now surfacing that states Lee Soo Geun, Uhm Tae Woong and Kim Jong Min are likely to stay on for the 2nd season.

He appears to be holding all the keys for Season 2

One related party stated that “There are discussions happening right now that are leaning towards Lee Soo Geun, Uhm Tae Woong and Kim Jong Min staying on the show. This is still quite a sensitive issue since ‘1N2D’ still has episodes left to air but a plan has been formulated to keep them on the show.”

Previously Uhm Tae Woong stated in his appearence on “Kim Seung Woo’s Win Win,” that he will stay on the show if Lee Soo Geun was to stay, with Kim Seung Woo also saying that he will be making a decision depending on Lee Soo Guen. Then at this the reasonable presumption that could be made is that Lee Soo Geun will form the core of the new show and try to play the role of a main MC in the new season.

Will most likely leave the show he helped popularize

This however doesn’t explain what will happen to Lee Seung Gi and Eun Ji Won. Lee Seung Gi does not look like he will be staying on the show. General consensus is that Lee Seung Gi wants to pursue various acting and singing projects he has been delaying up until now due to his loyalty towards “1 Night, 2 Days.” The end of “1 Night, 2 Days” in February will free up time in his schedule to pursue his much delayed entry into Japan and his acting career. In the case of Eun Ji Won, he is still undecided and nothing has been decided about him yet.

He has demonstrated that he can work quite well with Lee Soo Geun

With previous news stories discussing the likely possibility of Kim Seung Woo, Lee Juk and Sung Si Kyung joining the 2nd season and actor Joo Won in consideration as well, the general framework of the new show seems to be gradually forming in the eyes of the general public.

So what do you think Soompi readers? “1 Night, 2 Days Season 2” featuring Lee Soo Geun, Uhm Tae Woong, Kim Jong Min, Kim Seung Woo, Lee Juk, Sung Si Kyung and Joo Won? It’s definitely an interesting combination but it also seems to be comprised of members with a relatively serious image and a higher average age. Along with the complete change in production crews, it will be interesting to see how much of the original framework within Season 1 they decide to keep in Season 2. I think the saying here is “Why fix what isn’t broken?” But will viewers continue to love the show without some of its more popular members? Sound away in the comments below.
