It is a sad and nervous time for fans of the popular KBS variety show, “1 Night, 2 Days.”
The first “season” of 1 Night, 2 Days” with cast members Lee Soo Geun, Uhm Tae Woong, Kim Jong Min, Lee Seung Gi, and Eun Ji Won is coming to end. The first part of the final trip with the five members aired this past Sunday, bringing tears to viewers’ eyes. During the episode, a montage of past episodes was shown, marking the end of an era of hilarity, teamwork, and fun games.
Lee Seung Gi spent half of his twenties as a member, growing up in front of viewers’ eyes, and Eun Ji Won went from idol singer to a married man within the five years. These two are leaving the show with heavy hearts but optimistic attitudes as they leave to pursue different projects and goals.
While some of the team members will change, the show will go on, in the same format. Lee Soo Geun, Uhm Tae Woong, and Kim Jong Min remain on the show with four new members joining them- Kim Seung Woo, Sung Si Kyung, Cha Tae Hyun, and Joo Won.
With seven members ranging from a veteran actor in his 40s, a ballad singer in his 30s, and a young actor in his 20s, viewers are looking forward to the dynamics, chemistry, and teamwork between the new cast, as well as fresh energy to the five-year-old show.
The new cast began filming their first episode on February 24 in secret, although it is reported that their first trip is to Baek Ah Island and that the filming is going very well.
The first episode of the new “1 Night, 2 Days” will air March 4, while the final episode of the original five members will air this weekend on February 26.
