Watch: “New Journey To The West 5” Promises Epic Failures, Strange Characters, And Upgraded Hilarity In Newest Preview
“New Journey to the West 5” has shown that another great season is in the making.
The preview begins with a superhero film-like parody, with a dramatic English narration. Rather than the previous seasons’ Dragonball theme, the fifth season’s theme “Along with the Ghosts” will be a parody of the hit film series “Along with the Gods.”
The fifth season shows familiar characteristics to previous seasons, sarcastically boasting low resolution filming, questionable camera angles, and untranslatable humor. It also features the cast’s group dinners, idiom quizzes, witty banter with producing director (PD) Na Young Seok, and his tendency to film most of the show’s games inside small rooms despite their overseas destinations.
However, the PD also introduces new twists and bigger proportions to similar aspects from previous seasons. One such example is an enormous table laden with delicious food, with the members still trying to earn a single bite. Other memorable shots include Kang Ho Dong’s watermelon head and several cast members wrestling and piling on top of SECHSKIES’s Eun Ji Won as he wails in anger. The cast members’ official characters for the season are then introduced once more.
The preview concludes by introducing its newest member, Block B’s P.O. The production staff give a quiz where the members guess the correct name of an image shown to them within five seconds. When given an image of U.S. President Donald Trump, P.O. hilariously struggles, speechless.
The production staff let him have all the time he needs, to see if he can answer anyways, he mumbles, “He was with [Korean] President Moon Jae In, and wore the same neckties and everything…” He continues, protesting, “I really know it, I just can’t concentrate because it’s all of a sudden… He’s the president of the United States. I think his name has the letter ‘p’ in it.”
“New Journey to the West 5” will air its first episode on September 30 at 10:40 p.m. KST.
