On the recent episode of “2 Days & 1 Night” on January 22, Jung Joon Young stayed hidden during the show while the members participated in various games. The whole point of the games was that the members say Jung Joon Young’s name enough times for him to meet up with the members.
However, the singer’s day was not quite like what he’d planned. He even climbed up and down Jirisan Mountain, but the members did not mention his name much. Jung Joon Young could only reunite with the members if they said his name at least 30 times, but they only called his name nine times throughout the whole day.
Therefore, Jung Joon Young had to wait endlessly near the the members’ base camp. While the members concentrated on their dinner game, Jung Joon Young stayed inside a bus and waited for their call.
After seeing no signs of hope, the staff came up with a special plan. They created a game called “Say My Name,” where the members touch Jung Joon Young’s face and guess his name. Finally, Jung Joon Young got to stand before the “2 Day & 1 Night” members.
The members started touching Jung Joon Young’s face, starting with Cha Tae Hyun, then Kim Joon Ho, Yoon Shi Yoon, Defconn, and lastly Kim Jong Min. Jung Joon Young’s fun personality was still there, as he tried to kiss Kim Joon Ho while he was touching his face. The members tried guessing various names and Kim Joon Ho actually said “Jung Joon Young.”
After the session was over, the members had different answers. Cha Tae Hyun and Yoon Shi Yoon claimed they touched his hair and wrote down Jung Joon Young’s name. Yoon Shi Yoon kept saying, “I wish Jung Joon Young came out. I missed him so much.”
In the end, Jung Joon Young appeared before the members and they were very pleasantly surprised.
Jung Joon Young formally greeted the fans, saying, “Hello. This is Jung Joon Young. I really missed ‘2 Days & 1 Night’ all this time. I will work hard to not let the audience down from now on.”
