Na Young Suk Describes Kang Ho Dong and Lee Seung Gi on “The New Journey to the West”
The upcoming travel reality show starring the original members of “1 Night 2 Days,” which is set to air at the beginning of September through Naver TV Cast, is especially gaining attention since it is Lee Soo Geun‘s first project back after being involved in a gambling controversy in 2013.
Na Young Suk said that Kang Ho Dong will make things fun in the shoot which took place in Xian, Shaanxi in China. He said that when the members were put into a foreign country, new sides of them came out.
It was also relayed that Kang Ho Dong kept his conversational Mandarin textbook in his bag and learned as much as he could. Na Young Suk said, “Kang Ho Dong told me at first that he thought Chinese characters were pictures. Over the years on broadcast, starting off with his past as an athlete, he got the image of being an airhead. But this time, I think he studied the language a lot. He can speak Chinese slowly.” He added that the language barrier was difficult to get over, but Kang Ho Dong was cut out for China.
He also relayed that Lee Seung Gi stepped up to the plate and became the natural leader of the team, showing off his intelligence.
