Na In Woo Gets Lost For Hours On His Very First Day On “2 Days & 1 Night Season 4”
Back in January, KBS confirmed that actor Na In Woo would be joining the cast as a fixed member. The show, which took a break for a week, teased his appearance in previews, and the production staff gave an interview about how he had fitted into the cast.
In the February 13 episode, the cast set off to Jeongseon in Gangwon Province for winter weather training camp. Na In Woo arrived at the “training center” first and was told by the production staff to follow the path up to the base camp. But Na In Woo showed his unpredictable and clumsy side by going right past the “2 Days & 1 Night” flag and continuing up the mountain past the base camp. He talked to himself, saying, “I think they’ll be right around the corner. Or is this hide-and-seek?” He found the final ribbon and started coming up with reasons why it might have been ripped off while being filmed by the drone camera above.
Instead of turning back, he forged his own path and continued up the mountain. Tired out from hiking, he said, “There are footprints, but there is no one here. I’ve never walked this much before. I’ve never done a hide-and-seek like this before.” After two and a half hours of walking, he finally began to get suspicious.
Producing director (PD) Bang Geul Yi was informed of the situation and she said in concern, “I think we have to pick him up but is he even in a place where we can pick him up?” She requested that Na In Woo’s cameraman (VJ) make an approximate guess of where they were. After realizing it would take them another two hours to get back, she decided to rescue them.
By this point, the members were already at the training center and had lit a fire. PD Bang Geul Yi said, “There was someone who entered the training center before you.” The members wondered if it was a guest, like survival master Kim Byung Man, but Moon Se Yoon said, “Normally they use words like ‘invited’ and ‘coming,’ but if they said ‘enter,’ it’s someone we’re going to see for a while.” Ravi agreed and said, “Yes, since we’re the only ones who enrol.” The other members decided to show their “tough” sides to the newbie when the PD confirmed that it was a new member. Yeon Jung Hoon said, “We’re very shy. It’ll take two years to get close to us.”
Bang Geul Yi then revealed, “Our plan was to have the new member arrive first and get close with the members one by one. But he completely upended our plans by not seeing the placard on the other side of the river and climbing that mountain over there for about three hours. The production staff had to mount an emergency rescue mission and he’s coming here now.”
Kim Jong Min said, “He’s even worse than me. It’s amazing how you find members like this.” Yeon Jung Hoon added with a laugh, “I think you pick very strange members.”
When Na In Woo finally met up the members, they first marveled at his height, which he told them was 188 cm (about 6’2″). DinDin later got on a milk box in order to be able to see eye-to-eye with him. Na In Woo put on his winter training parka and hat and made Kim Jong Min happy by saying, “I’ll follow you, the ace.” Asked why he had chosen to appear on “2 Days & 1 Night,” he said, “To see you all!” He added that DinDin was beautiful, Ravi was cool, and Kim Jong Min was perfect.
He also introduced himself to the viewers, saying, “To the fans around the world, to everyone watching in Korea, I will be on ‘2 Days & 1 Night’ starting today. I’m lacking in many ways, but I believe the other members will help me a lot, and will work hard to be a good younger member to them. I will capture their hearts.”
