Kang Ho Dong and PD Na Young Suk Planning to Reunite Old “1 Night 2 Days” Cast in New Variety Show

Kang Ho Dong and PD Na Young Suk Planning to Reunite Old “1 Night 2 Days” Cast in New Variety Show

Three Meals a Day” producer Na Young Suk and MC Kang Ho Dong are in talks to create a new variety show that may reunite the cast from the “1 Night 2 Days” golden age.

Producer Na Young Suk told news outlet OSEN, “I don’t know when but I want to launch [the show] as soon as possible. It will be an outdoors variety show. I meet Kang Ho Dong and Lee Seung Gi on a regular basis. We talk about getting the ’1 Night 2 Days’ members back together some time.”

Kang Ho Dong’s side stated, “He did meet with Producer Na Young Suk and they are planning a new program. There isn’t a set agenda yet, but they do plan on reviving the ’1 Night 2 Days’ team.”

Lee Seung Gi’s agency responded, “He did receive a love call, and he is currently considering it optimistically. He hasn’t been informed about the program’s format or anything like that.”

If Kang Ho Dong and the rest of “1 Night 2 Days” members reunite, it will be the first time in four years that they will be doing a program together.

What are your opinions on this idea? Are you excited for this upcoming show?

Lee Seung Gi and Kang Ho Dong to reunite in Na Young Suk PD's new variety show!


Producer Na Young Suk, who boasts an impressive set of works on his résumé such as the 'Grandpas/Noonas/Youth Over Flowers' series, 'Three Meals a Day,' and '1 Night 2 Days' is said to have something else up his sleeve.

A representative from tvN confirmed the seasoned producer's endeavor at a new program with a statement that went, "PD Na Young Suk is working on a new program after the succession of the 'Flowers' series and 'Three Meals a Day.' This coming fall, he will showcase a new format of variety using internet [as the medium]." 


The new program, the details of concept, and platform of the show are still in the planning stages. The only certain thing about the upcoming show is that it will be filmed outdoors. What's more interesting is that this new show will see the reunion of Kang Ho Dong and Lee Seung Gi, who have proved themselves a fantastic duo in the world of variety. 


The production crew stated, "We invested [in the show] as a new format that will broadcast on the internet instead of TV. Right now, we are considering recruiting Lee Soo Geun, and Eun Ji Won in addition to Kang Ho Dong and Lee Seung Gi. There will be no more additions after four members are confirmed." Sounds like a reunion of the old '1N2D' cast!

I’ve always wanted to do variety, and this time an opportunity like this came up

But it doesn’t end there, so please always be on the lookout~~^^

It has been revealed that all-new tvN variety program ‘New Journey to the West‘ which will be the next ambitious project by Na Young Suk PD, will film in China next month.

A representative said, “‘New Journey to the West’ will film in China. We had actually been continuously discussing about a location since last week, and the final decision was made to go to China. Filming will begin in early August, and we are looking at a premiere in late August or early September.”

As for whether it will enter the Chinese market, a program representative stated, “We are currently preparing in many areas, but nothing has been decided.”

CJ E&M “NJttW Members Private Meeting Today, No Filming”

Posted on Jul 22, 2015by tryp96





Na Young Seok PD’s new variety program ‘New Journey to the West’ is holding the first meeting of the members.


A CJ E&M official told Sports Chosun on July 23, “Na Young Seok PD is meeting with NJttW members Kang Ho Dong and Lee Seung Gi today.”


The official explained, “You could call it the first meeting regarding NJttW, but it’s just a simple private meeting over a meal. Because it’s a personal appointment, there’s no plan to film it.”


S/he added, “Lee Su Geun and Eun Ji Won’s appearance in the show is still in the stage of discussion, so I don’t know if they’ll attend, but as it’s a personal meeting, it’s possible that they will all gather together.”


‘New Journey to the West’ is an outdoor variety program, and Na Young Seok PD has a mutual understanding with 1N2D original members Kang Ho Dong and Lee Seung Gi. It’ll be released on the internet in the new form of ‘internet digital contents,’ not as TV broadcasts. Filming will take place in China in early August. Simultaneous internet broadcasting in Korea and China in late August ~ early September is still under consideration, and detailed schedules are also under discussion.

August is coming and we have no news :( hopefully, Chinese fans (I'm counting on you Ch Airens) would stalk the team and spoil us with fancams and fanpics B)

I don't think the production team allow the stalking, in NoF SeungGi ended have to go into the car. I remembered fans must stay in designated range to not disturb the filming, unless SeungGi approached them like in the airport :)

Hello All.. ^0^/   sorry for abandoning this thread..^^;

Well.. there's not really any new thing to talking about.. ^^;


It's already August, why there's no update..! TT

Maybe they want to go low profile.. but please don't say they'll go there quitely.. not telling us.. and suddenly appear in China.. TT

It will be helpful to decrease the fuss in the airport..  but how about my greed?!! I need a looot of fanpics!! TT  :P


Anyway..  from SeungGi schedule, he canceled performance on August 8.. (even though it haven't really been confirmed before it canceled :P)

15.07.07 News Tidbits – Lee Seung Gi

Posted on Jul 7, 2015 by tryp96

7/21 update: SeungGi’s performance has been cancelled due to certain circumstances. (I guess that means he’ll be in China filming the new variety show on August 8.)


SkyLife is holding a “Super Festival” to celebrate the launch of its UHD channels, and its promotion states that SeungGi will appear (perform?) at this festival.

The festival will be held at Dongdaemun Design Plaza on August 8.

And he should already in Korea on August 15

15.08.15 Lee Seung Gi Schedule Update

So, it seems they'll go around that time. Well, they did say will go early August. but if they filming for 7 to 10 days.. this "early August" should be really early!

I think for NoF we got official departure date 4 or 3 days before D-Day, so I hope we'll get the news today.. ><


BTW, Na PD had finished filming 3MaD right?

Yes, I want airport pics too, but maybe they'll go quietly. I doubt they can go completely quite. There must be people who see them filming together in airport and will take pics... but I want HQ fanpics *greedy*

I think at first I read it was 5 days filming, then I read a week filming? Looks like they haven't released the exact time too.
