Cha Tae Hyun Cares for ‘1 Night, 2 Days’ Ratings a Lot
Stars laugh and cry with the rise and fall of viewership ratings. They’re especially vulnerable to the changes if they’ve been passed a seat in a program that was previously so popular.
Cha Tae Hyun revealed that he was no exception regarding the ratings for 1 Night, 2 Days 2.
The new season of 1 Night, 2 Days is still stumbling along in the shadow of its previous season, not being able to live up to its fun or popularity. The ones who really feel the most pressure about this are probably none other than the cast who actually have to stay out in the wild for the program.
In a recent shoot for KBS2’s Win Win, Cha Tae Hyun said about 1 Night, 2 Days’ ratings, “I care for [the ratings] a lot, so I have to get a drink every Monday. When the ratings rise, I drink because I’m happy, and when they fall, I drink because I’m sad.”
The actor/TV personality added, “In the beginning 1 Night, 2 Days got high ratings, but it actually felt like they were simply a continuation from the previous season’s. Now that the ratings have taken a dip and we’re watching as they climb little by little, we’re feeling like it’s really become our own program now, and we’re working hard while trying to support each other.”
Due to the hard work he’s put into the program, he’s been feeling more attached to it.
Cha Tae Hyun said to a question asking whether he thought it was a good thing that he took up 1 Night, 2 Days, “I think I would’ve regretted it if I hadn’t. I think I made the right choice.”
Cha Tae Hyun’s talk about 1 Night, 2 Days will air on the July 24 broadcast of KBS2’s Win Win.
