Joo Won Talks about the New ′1 Night, 2 Days′ with Yu Hae Jin
Joo Won opened up on how he likes the new KBS2 1 Night, 2 Days now that Yu Hae Jin is in the lead.
In a meeting with press on April 9, Joo Won said, "Perhaps now because we have a different leader, there has been a change in mood. All six of the members who were originally with the show have been trying to help [Yu] Hae Jin hyung (big brother) try to adapt as quickly as possible."
He also said that Yu Hae Jin has been pouring in his own efforts.
"I know [how he feels], because I′ve been in a similar position, but Hae Jin hyung is doing well," Joo Won said. "I′m thankful because I can see he′s trying to fit in and work hard. Hae Jin hyung also told the six of us that he′s thankful we′re treating him so well when it′s his first time here."
Yoo Hae Jin took the place of Kim Seung Woo, who left the show and left Joo Won in tears on his last broadcast.
Joo Won said about Kim Seung Woo, "I was always a fan, but I came to like him even more after meeting him through the show. He′s a great man, with charisma, manliness and leadership. I believe he′s a big brother I can trust and look up to."
The two are still close friends.
"[Kim] Seung Woo hyung told me that he would kill me if I didn′t keep in touch," Joo Won said. "That′s how close we are. The way I can lay my head on him when I lay down to sleep shows how close we′ve come to be."
The mood on 1 Night, 2 Days probably did change because of the new recruits, but some of it also came from the change in main producer. Joo Won thought positively of the change that came to the show after producer Lee Se Hee joined in, and he didn′t hide his attachment toward it.
He said, "Though I may be tired because of the tight schedules, the good thing about 1 Night, 2 Days is that I can see pretty sights. I believe not a lot of people will get to travel as many times before they die, and I′m lucky to be given this chance. These days I′ve been getting healed by the sights, while at the same time realizing that there are so many beautiful destinations in Korea."
