The May 25 episode of KBS 2TV‘s “1 Night, 2 Days” focused on returning to the show’s beginnings with the episode’s topic being “First Episode Deja Vu.” However, during the opening, the members were surprised with a special guest: a dog that looked like Sang Geun. Although the members had initially thought that the dog was Sang Geun, the original “1 Night, 2 Days” pet mascot, it was revealed that the big, white, fluffy dog was none other than Sang Geun’s son, Hoya! Without a doubt it was clear that Hoya was Sang Geun’s son as the cute dog looked exactly like his father.
Viewers of the variety show were hit with cuteness overload as Hoya’s calm and relaxed personality melted the heart of the show’s members and staff. Moreover, Hoya’s presence was important throughout the show as the dog helped decide certain factors such as the type of car the members were to drive.
Though it would have been great to see Sang Geun at the show’s opening, the show’s original pet mascot had sadly passed away back in April.
