If there’s one show that have me laughing from start to finish week in week out, it got to be 1 Night 2 Days (1박2일; pronounce as il bag i il). If you’re not familiar with this show, well that’s because this is a Korean variety show. I couldn’t remember when I started watching 1N2D, it must’ve been somewhere around the Foreign Workers’ Special (episode 173) which aired early this year. FYI, 1N2D started its run on August 5, 2007. So you can imagine how much I’ve missed.
1 Night 2 Days is a tale of 5 lads spending an overnight trip touring interesting places in South Korea. I know this sounds so norm. But here are the beauty of this show: you get to see beautiful scenery and off the beaten track of the lands in South Korea (4 seasons of gorgeous Korea!), being introduced to lip-smacking Korean food (which makes me ‘lau hau sui’/salivate every time!) and immerse in the beautiful Korean culture. There are just so many things that make you go ga-ga over 1N2D.
