Jung Joon Ha Opens Up About Saying Tearful Goodbye To “Infinite Challenge” + Memorable Moments
When asked to share a memorable time on the show, Jung Joon Ha said that “Muhan Company” was the most memorable. “My role was someone being fired, and I cried a lot during filming while I imagined that,” he said. “I cried so much on set, I really got into the emotions.”
He also mentioned that he’d practiced wrestling for the show for 13 months, but he’d injured his back while filming when a wrestling move that they’d planned was carried out too powerfully in the ring. However, he’d kept going until the end and showed off his high level of skill, and in the end he received the greatest applause from the audience.
“I was watching it at home but I thought to myself that I couldn’t watch the suffering on my own,” he said. “I cried a lot over it.”
The hosts mentioned that Jung Joon Ha had said that he’s cautious about mentioning the show now. Jung Joon Ha said, “Now Yoo Jae Suk and Kim Tae Ho are doing a show, but it’s completely unrelated to ‘Infinite Challenge’ and a different genre,” said Jung Joon Ha. “I don’t know if we’ll get together one day and do something but right now, I’m really cautious about talking about ‘Infinite Challenge.'”
Kim Sook shared that she’d heard that while they were filming, the “Infinite Challenge” team would sometimes be together up to six days of the week. Jung Joon Ha said, “There were many times that we’d film every day of the week!”
When asked how he felt after all that ended, Jung Joon Ha said, “On our last day of filming, I cried so hard I couldn’t speak. I had a lot of thoughts.”
He continued, “To be honest, I was thinking about making a YouTube channel. I filmed something once. I called it ‘What to do on Thursdays?'” Thursday was the day when “Infinite Challenge” would usually film. However, he became worried about possible negative reactions from other people. In the end, he has been going overseas to film other programs and Thursday to him has gradually become a regular day of the week.
