Jung Joon Ha’s “Producer 101” Plans Fail After No One Shows Up
This week’s episode of “Infinite Challenge” was a continuation of last week’s episode where each member had to come up with his own idea for a show.
Jung Joon Ha put his own spin to the popular “Produce 101” show and came up with the idea for “Producer 101,” where producers would compete to appeal to Jung Joon Ha with great ideas for a show that can make him into a superstar.
Last week, he spent his days putting up flyers and personally recruiting well-known producers for his show. This week, he nervously showed up to the set where the auditions were to be held, which was a perfect recreation of the famous “Produce 101” pyramid set-up.
However, after two hours of waiting, no one showed up. At this point, Jung Joon Ha told the “Infinite Challenge” filming crew to turn off the lights to save energy. After waiting in the dark for another hour, the staff notified Jung Joon Ha that they had rented the set for three hours and the time was up. They had to wrap up filming with a total of zero participants.
Despite this failure, Jung Joon Ha shared good news that he had received contact from casting directors of U.S. dramas expressing interest in him, asking him to send them audition tapes after the cast participated in some auditions last month. He said one of the shows was from the production company of the film “Snowpiercer,” and the writer previously wrote “Prison Break.”
Meanwhile, after this week’s episode, “Infinite Challenge” is temporarily cancelled due to the MBC producers’ strike.
