After much anticipation, plenty of rumors and guess work, we have now gotten final confirmation of the members that will appear on “One Night, Two Days Season Two.” The member list actually doesn’t stray too far from what we’ve being speculating so far.

So without further adu here is the cast list for “One Night, Two Days Season 2.” Season One members Lee Soo Geun, Kim Jong Min and Uhm Tae Woong will continue to be a part of the show and will be joined by new members, actor Kim Seung Woo, actor Joo Won, Singer Sung Si Kyung and finally an unexpected member, actor Cha Tae Hyun. They will be joined by a new production staff, led by Choi Jae Hyung PD, responsible for past KBS programs like “FC Shoot-Dori” and “Invincible Baseball Team.” They will also continue to use the name “One Night, Two Days” as their program name. They will be holding their first recording on Feb. 24 and is expected to air their first episode on Mar. 3.

They’ve stated that they won’t delve too far from the current format thou and more ambitious projects like a possible re-take of thier cancelled Antartica project will be reconsidered once the new show stabilizes a bit. Having watched Choi Jae Hyung PD’s prior show, i can at least somewhat say that his style will be a bit different to Season One PD, Nah Yong Suk. Choi Jae Hyung PD definately isn’t the type of PD that likes to come out on camera often and interact as a unofficial 8th member like Nah Yong Suk did. He seems to prefer letting the members run the show without much intrusion, so it will be interesting to see if he continues down this path or goes for a more active role. The member list is also quite interesting, most of those names were a part of the rumors leading upto today’s confirmation but Cha Tae Hyun is definately an unexpected but welcome addition to the member list. His comedic and child-like energy should prove to balance out the more serious-minded members like Kim Seung Woo and Sung Shi Kyung, while being a good comedy partner with either Kim Jong Min or Lee Soo Geun. I definately approve of Cha Tae Hyun’s inclusion into the show.
So what do you think Soompi readers? Now that we have a final confirmation of the member list, has your anticipation for the new show risen or are their still some niggling worries about how the show will move forward? Sound away in the comments below.
