The youngest member of “2 Days & 1 Night” is back in action!
Jung Joon Young was finally reunited with his older brothers in the January 15 episode of the variety show. The reunion, however, did not take place so easily.
While the members were filming the opening segment in Geochang Suseungdae Park, Jung Joon Young was miles away in Jirisan National Park, where he was informed that he could only rejoin his members if they called his name a certain number of times. Otherwise, he had to keep climbing up Jirisan, the second-highest mountain in South Korea.
The other members were not told about this mission. They were also asked to pick a number from a box, which would be the number of times they had to call Jung Joon Young’s name. In response to their curiosity, the members were told only that they would find out the meaning of the number over the course of the trip.
Unfortunately, the members picked 30, the highest of the lot. Although they had made reference to Jung Joon Young many times during his absence, both Jung Joon Young and the production team were not optimistic at all about the success of the mission.
True enough, there wasn’t the slightest hint of any mention of Jung Joon Young, especially when the lunch mission began, and food took top priority. It was a hilarious contrast between the members and Jung Joon Young, as the former played the usual boisterous games of “2 Days & 1 Night,” while the latter looked like he was filming a completely unrelated nature documentary instead.
Watch the episode below to find out if they succeeded!
