Cha Tae Hyun Hopes “1 Night 2 Days” Beats “Gag Concert” at End-of-year Awards


Actor Cha Tae Hyun has revealed that he would like to beat “Gag Concert” with “1 Night 2 Days” at the end-of-year award ceremonies.

Cha Tae Hyun said in the press conference held on December 10 at the KBS wedding hall about KBS 2TV‘s variety show “1 Night 2 Days,” that he recommends Kim Joon Ho again for Grand Prize (Daesang). He said, “I don’t think it would be a problem if Kim Joon Ho got the Daesang this year since the situation with ‘1 Night 2 Days’ improved a lot, although there’s still ‘Superman Returns‘ [to beat].”

He added, “We finished filming last week. We filmed seven or eight different scenarios, ones in which we actually got the Grand Prize, one in which we didn’t, one in which we didn’t get nominated. Then there was one where Joon Ho gets the Grand Prize, one where we get the Grand Prize as a team, one where we are dejected because ‘Superman Returns’ gets the Grand Prize. And as such, we don’t feel too pressured.”

Also, he joked, “It’s a better situation than last year. Personally, I would like to get the Program Prize where the viewers vote for their favorite shows. I would like to beat ‘Gag Concert.’ Although it would be okay losing to ‘Superman Returns,’ I would like to beat ‘Gag Concert.'”

Meanwhile, “1 Night 2 Days” celebrated its first anniversary of its third season on December 1. With the addition of Kim Joo Hyuk, Kim Joon Ho, Cha Tae Hyun, Defcon, Kim Jong Min, Jung Joon Young, season three of “1 Night 2 Days” overcame the low ratings of the second season and currently has the highest rating of Sunday variety show programs.
