‘Win Win’ Wins Big With Switcheroo Special
The hosts and guests have been switching their seats on KBS2’s Win Win to mark its 100th anniversary.
Following main MC Kim Seung Woo, who sat on the guest seat on the January 16 broadcast of the talk show, Lee Su Geun appeared on the show as a guest on the January 31.
On the broadcast, Lee opened his heart and surprised viewers by confiding that his mother is a shaman.
Lee said, “When I was a child, my mother fell sick all of sudden. Doctors couldn’t identify the cause of her disease. But later it turned out she was possessed by a spirit. She held out working in restaurants and so on not to become a shaman, but she suddenly started acted very strangely. In the end, she became a shaman and has been healthy since then.”
His confession came as a shock because he had kept it to himself up to date. The strong connection between Lee and Win Win might have led him to open his heart.
Apparently, it was meaningful for MCs to put themselves in the guest’s shoes. Kim Seung Woo also confided his life story ranging from his debut to his current status on the other day. His wife Kim Nam Joo, who graced the program on its opening day, appeared as an MC on that day and helped Kim to bare his heart to the viewers.
The special gig brought about a synergy effect and uplifted viewership ratings. The Lee Su Geun special drew in 12.3 percent viewer ratings (AGB Nielsen Media Research) and beat out rival program SBS’ Strong Heart.
Meanwhile, Win Win will be featuring a Lee Ki Kwang and B2ST special, as well as a Tak Jae Hun special.
