“Amazing Saturday” CP Praises TWICE’s Momo And Sana For Their Recent Guest Appearance
The chief producer (CP) of tvN’s “Amazing Saturday” had nothing but praise for TWICE’s Momo and Sana after their recent appearance.
Momo and Sana were guests on “Amazing Saturday” on August 4 and their episode garnered average viewership ratings of 2.0 percent and peaked at 2.8 percent for the 2049 age bracket (viewers between the ages of 20 and 49). This was a new record for “Amazing Saturday” and made it the most watched show in its time slot in the 2049 age bracket.
CP Park Sung Jae stated, “Sana and Momo had just come from a music show taping, but they didn’t show a hint of fatigue and did their best throughout the show, bringing more laughter to the show. Most of the cast members were surprised at how well the two TWICE members wrote in Korean and how high their understanding of the Korean language was despite being Japanese [and Korean not being their first language].”
He went on to say, “Cast members like SHINee’s Key, Girl’s Day’s Hyeri, and rapper Hanhae welcomed the TWICE members very warmly as industry seniors and as fans of the popular girl group. Thanks to this, Sana and Momo were very relaxed throughout the taping of the show. Shin Dong Yup shared that his daughter is a big fan of TWICE, and Moon Se Yoon and Kim Dong Hyun also revealed that they are fans as well.”
“Amazing Saturday” was able to hit its highest ratings for its target age bracket with TWICE’s help. The CP said, “Most of all, we are grateful to our viewers and we are grateful to the cast members for always doing their best. We really felt TWICE’s power through this [rise in ratings]. We really want to thank Sana and Momo.”
The show has been inviting guests since its eighth episode, bringing in celebrities like AOA’s Hyejeong and Seolhyun, Yang Se Hyung, SEVENTEEN’s Dokyeom and Hoshi, Kim Heechul, Wanna One’s Ong Seong Woo and Lee Dae hwi, g.o.d’s Park Joon Hyung and Danny Ahn, Han Hyun Min, and now TWICE’s Momo and Sana. When asked who else he’d like on the show, CP Park Sung Jae replied, “I’d like to invite people from a variety of fields like writer Yoo Si Min, Jung Hae In, BIGBANG’s Seungri, rapper Simon Dominic, Wanna One’s Kang Daniel, Kim Hee Sun, Zico, and BTS.”
“Amazing Saturday” is a variety show in which cast members and guests try to guess the lyrics to songs. The show airs every Saturday at 7:40 p.m. KST.
