On October 27, iKON member Yunhyeong appeared on SBS’s “Law of the Jungle” for the very first time along with Apink members Chorong and Bomi. The three singers joined the existing members on the island of Taveuni, known as the “Garden Island of Fiji.”
Despite this being Yunhyeong’s first appearance in the jungle, he had been watching the show for years and was a big fan. Producing director (PD) Kim Jin Ho said, “Yunhyeong had watched ‘The Law of the Jungle’ a lot. During the interview, it seemed like he memorized [the show].”
Kim Jin Ho praised Yunhyeong, saying, “It was his first time going to the jungle, but I had high expectations for him thinking he could do a lot. He satisfied my expectations by 200 percent. He did really well.”
Kim Jin Ho added, “YG [Entertainment] has a chic image, but Yunhyeong wasn’t anything like that at all. When the older members called him maknae [youngest], he showed off his charms when answering them. When I told him during the interview that he was completely different from his image and seemed comfortable with everyone, he said he was happy because that was his goal. He was glad that the older members could approach him comfortably.”
According to staff members, Yunhyeong had always hoped to go to the jungle, so he enjoyed his time on the show and used the skills he learned just by being a big fan of the show. Despite being the youngest, he also actively participated with the group by fishing, diving, and cooking.
