Kim C′s Episode for Final Episode of ′1 Night, 2 Days′ Brings Disappointment
KBS2’s 1 Night, 2 Days and SBS’ Family Outing were rival programs. Both featured its members leaving on trips and also featured Korea’s MC’s, Yoo Jae Suk and Kang Ho Dong, squaring off against each other.
The two programs and their rivalry came to an official close on February 26 with the broadcast of the final episode of the first season of 1 Night, 2 Days. The final episode was not too different from the final episode of Family Outing as it also featured the members looking back and reminiscing on their journey and taking a look at some of the most memorable moments. However, there was one clear difference.
1 Night, 2 Days came to an end on February 26. On this episode, members Lee Seung Gi, Lee Su Geun, Kim Jong Min, Eun Ji Won and Uhm Tae Woong held a surprise fan meeting with fans and afterwards, played the ‘zombie game’ for old time’s sake and held a time to share and talk.
During their discussion, the five members also selected and shared their most memorable moments. The five members shed a lot of bittersweet tears as the show drew to a close after five years.
The end of 1 Night, 2 Days was similar to the end of Family Outing. Family Outing, which ended its grand voyage after one year and six months, and also featured its members selecting and sharing on their best memories.
But despite the two shows’ similarities in its conclusion, one clear difference was in the fact of which members the show ended with.
In Family Outing’s final episode, its previous cast mates, including Park Ye Jin, Lee Chun Hee and others, were all invited and showed up for the final episode. For fans, it was a satisfying closure to the show while bringing back memories of the members and their honored time on the show.
However for 1 Night, 2 Days the show ended with five members- Lee Seung Gi, Lee Su Geun, Kim Jong Min, Eun Ji Won and Uhm Tae Woong. Of course, for MC Kang Ho Dong who has spent the last few months in temporary retirement, it would have been difficult for him to appear on the final episode. However, in the case of former cast mate, Kim C, it was different. Kim C, who returned at the end of last year from his studies in Germany, was also featured prominently during the highlights time of the final episode.
Had Kim C appeared in the final episode, it would have been a perfect closing gift for viewers. For the show’s members, the shared ‘wild’ friendship between ach other would have held a deeper meaning. However 1 Night, 2 Days concluded on this slightly disappointing note.
For closure to a show like 1 Night, 2 Days, the absence of Kim C, who shared nights and memories with the show’s cast mates for over three years, it was a deep disappointment .
