1N2D: Fall Variety Special
With the start of the fall, the 1N2D team went on their Fall Special Trip. This time to the beautiful ravines at Kangwondo Samchuck. I actually had missed a few episodes (still need to see the Chuseok Special), and watching the show made me remember how much I love 1N2D.
Onward with the show! (MC Mong’s song was playing in the opening.)
MC Mong – HORROR SHOW (featuring Kang Ho Dong and Whale)
I can’t really write a full recap, since that will take me all day. It’s going to be hard, but I’ll try to pick out the moments I enjoyed the most.
For the opening scene, they meet at the beach, with Seung Gi and Su Geun dressed up as Inspector Gadget. And what do we get when we have a 1N2D and water? A wet member of course. They decide to play rock-paper-scissors to determine who will get dunked. MC Mong takes charge and throws up a rock in the air behind Ho Dong’s back, and gets everyone to fool Ho Dong into losing. (Ho Dong actually wins the first time, throwing out paper to everyone else’s rock, but the members get him to play again.) Ho Dong tries to get out it, but ends up manning up and getting fully immersed.
On their way to the locale, the members get into talking about their love lives. When asked about marriage, Ji Won says that he plans on getting married next year, to everyone’s surprise. Then Ho Dong announces that MC Mong is as good as married, so there’s no reason to ask him any questions, which turns our attentions to Seung Gi.
KHD: You’ll get married one day. When you think about your future wife, what type of behavior would you not be acceptable to you?
LSGi: I’m actually really old-fashioned.
KHD: How? For example…
LSGi: People might think I’m crazy. I tell myself not to think this way, and tell myself to respect the other person, but don’t like it when they go clubbing.
KHD/KimC: That’s understandable.
KHD: What else?
LSGi: I don’t want to her dress to wild.
KHD: What else? Do you have to be her first love?
LSGi: No… it doesn’t… It would be nice if I was her first love.
LSGn: Wow, he’s really greedy.
LSGi: I hope she hasn’t gone out with too many guys.
MCM: Later, your future wife will always have to dress in a han-bok. (Traditional Korea dress)
KHD: You said you didn’t date during your 4 years of college. Then did you kiss anyone?
MCM: Not counting dramas, or music videos…
KHD: Then, I, Lee Seung Gi, after my debut, have watched pornography. Yes or No.
LSGi: Uh… yes I’ve seen a little.
KHD: Really? You watched it yourself?
KimC: Of course alone…
LSGi: Alone. Do you watch it with someone else?
EJW: There’s a more important question. Did you watch it because someone gave it to you or did you look for it yourself in order to watch it?
LSGi: Yes. (I looked for it.)
KHD: Even Seung Gi is interested…
LSGi: I’m going to be labeled a pervert. I’m done for.
EJW: You’re not done. It’s cute…
LSGi: He’s dirty…
MCM: Ah yes… we’re the 1N2D team with the dirty Seung Gi…
Hahaha… This was so hilarious. I love that Seung Gi just told her truth. He really is a cutie…
The members are sent out on a mission while going “ravine tracking”. They are given a set of captions, and need to take pictures that will fit the caption. They are:
- As long as it’s NOT me!
- Floating in air
- The art of the dunk.
- I love you, hyung.
And they also find out that there is 1 more caption, which will get revealed once they reach their destination (first waterfall). The members have a lot of fun, while taking the pictures. MC Mong loses the game of rock-paper-scissors and is the first to jump into the water. They try to take the jump picture as well, but Dae Ju is unable to get a good shot even after multiple tries. So they have another round rock-paper-scissors for another jumper, and Kim C loses. This leads to a Bruce Lee-like Kim C, showing off his chocolate abs. The funniest part is really when LSGi goes nuts after getting “chosen” for the 6th picture. (I translated in my last post.)
For the dinner bok-bul-bok, they have their 2nd Individual Quiz, in order to earn their dinner. After 1 hour of studying, they head out to find ramen, soup, kimchi, ham, etc., with everyone getting a pot of water. There is a limited number of items, so the quiz will be over when all the food is gone. Ho dong complains that it’ll just be Seung Gi and Kim C who may end up eating, but they still start the quiz.
MC Mong easily gets the first question, “In the book, The Wizard of Oz, what does the scarecrow long for?”, answering “intelligence.” The next question is, “Who was the first leader of the Roman Empire?” MC Mong answers, “Rome’s first leader was Rome.” When given the clue that it’s 6 syllables, ending with a “seu”, Ho Dong goes crazy, naming things ending with “seu” even without counting the syllables. Seung Gi in the end gets it right, with “Augustus.” He takes a soup base, (and not the ramen), confident that he’ll answer another question correctly to earn the ramen.
Seeing a silent Ji Won, Na PD decides to throw him a bone, asking a question about Harry Potter. Ji Won, yells that he gave up that book because the names were too difficult. But PD Na still asks, “What is the unforgivable curse?” Su Geun in jest replies, “Avada Kadavra”, not thinking that it’s right. (It’s confusing because it sounds so much like Abracadabra, especially in Korean.) After a few wrong guesses, Ji Won beats out Ho Dong, realizing that Su Geun had given the correct answer and yells, “Avada Kadavra” to earn a bowl of rice.
With the last question of “Who’s Zeus’ wife in Greek mythology”, PD Na puts together a package of ramen, soup, ham, and seafood for the winner. Seung Gi, knowing the answer, decides to help the other members by giving them a clue. He tells them that it’s a very popular name, one that everyone knows. Ji Won first calls out “Eve” as the answer, to everyone’s dismay. When the unsuspecting Su Geun, answer “Hera!” to win the the dinner set, everyone is shocked beyond belief.
The sleeping bok-bul-bok is based on the soccer match between Korea and Ghana, to which Korea loses, forcing all the members to sleep outdoors. With the group divided into “snorers” and “non-snorers” in 2 tents, they are given their morning assignment. The 2 teams are given a baton, and whoever completes the relay first in the morning wins breakfast, a specialty rice of the region.
Shockingly, Ji Won wakes up before the alarm rings, and gets his team (Su Geun and Ho Dong) ready. The team is all ready to win, but Su Geun doesn’t cross the finish line, trying to bring some fun to the event. At that moment, Kim C steals Su Geun’s baton, and MC Mong runs in to win the race. The non-snorers enjoy their healthy breakfast.
There are so many other funny moments, like Ji Won’s constant state of sleepiness, the Christmas carols with Ho Dong and Su Geun, and the good bye moment with Ji Won starting to sing the G.O.D. song instead of Seung Gi’s new song. (They lyrics both have, “let’s break up”, in it.) 1N2D: Thanks for another night of endless laughter!
