On August 6, the cast of “Infinite Challenge” and its producer Kim Tae Ho left to L.A. to audition for American television shows. Since then, clips from their basketball game with Stephen Curry and Seth Curry have become popular and featured on American media.
On Instagram, HaHa posted, “Korea’s variety shows are the best! I’m in the U.S. right now and the reactions are hot. (We appeared on ESPN, CBS, USA Today, Yahoo, New York Daily News, Sports Illustrated, Sports Nets, Sporting News, SB Nation, and more!! People recognize us. Especially Yoo Jae Suk and Jung Joon Ha!) A brilliant take on a basketball game! Korean variety’s approach toward Curry!! As an ‘Infinite Challenge’ member and Korean variety show entertainer, it is an honor. I am so proud.”

In response to the attention, producer Kim Tae Ho said, “I think HaHa exaggerated a bit. Yesterday, [the clip of the basketball game] was on CNN. We visited Netflix and the actors and producers recognized us. It was cool. I think we are receiving so much attention because Stephen Curry is an amazing person.”
