“Strong Heart” (강심장) with Kang Ho Dong and first time host Lee Seung Gi had it’s first broadcast on 10/6. The show pits 24 (count them TWENTY FOUR!) guests against each to outdo one other in telling a “strong” story. And the one with the strongest heart is crowned the winner.
As an avid fan of 1n2d, I was looking forward to seeing KHD and LSG together. They, as expected, did a good job bouncing off either other. I also found Boom’s antics pretty funny – especially when G-Dragon danced to Boom’s song.
24 guests seem a bit excessive though. About half of them didn’t say a single word on the show and the focus of the episode was definitely on G-Dragon, and Seungri to a lesser extent. I’m not an avid fan of idol groups but I like singing the occasional “Abracadabra” at no-rae-bang. But I’m not exactly sure what the big deal is with Big Bang or G-Dragon. (I do find Dae Sung super cute on Family Outing though.) Even Baek Ji Young, who’s no slouch on variety programs, didn’t get in a single word.
Either way, I’m a fan of Kang Ho Dong and Lee Seung Gi, so I’ll be tuning in.
