Thanks to everyone who submitted entries for the quiz and prize giveaway to celebrate my blog’s first anniversary. Congratulations to Kaka Seunggi Airen for submitting the first entry with a perfect score. I also want to extend my congratulations to Sunshine Omuraisu for being the second and the only other entry with a perfect score. They have both been notified last night. Here are the answers to the quiz for the curious:
Question #1: What is Seung Gi’s favorite color? Blue
Question #2: What is Seung Gi’s favorite season? Winter
Question #3: What is Seung Gi’s favorite number? 8 (It was in an interview I blogged recently)
Question #4: What episode of 1N2D Season 1 did Seung Gi join the cast? 27
Question #5: Season 1 of 1N2D runs from episode #? to episode #? 13-244 (This question had the most variety of answers among the 100+ entries I received. Prior to 1N2D, it was preceded by ‘Are You Ready’ featuring most of the 1 Night 2 Days members — Kang Ho-dong, Lee Soo-geun, Kim Jong-min, and Eun Ji-won. Are You Ready was canceled after 12 episodes because of low viewership ratings and replaced with 1N2D. The first episode of 1N2D aired on August 5, 2007. Here’s a wikipedia link with the episode numbers: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_2_Days_%26_1_Night_episodes
In this list, Seung Gi joined the show in Episode 15, but all International Airens know it as Episode 27, so there’s a difference of (27-15=12) until the end of the show which is Episode #244. I have also accepted answers that said Season 1 started from Episode 1-233 but all English subbed videos with Seung Gi have it numbered from 27-244. So 1N2D really started after the flopped 12 episodes of a previous show called ‘Are You Ready’ and that is why the answer is not 1-244. You have to factor in the difference of 12 episodes which were a different show. In the Wikipedia chart, according to Happy Sunday numbering of the episodes, Season #1 runs from Ep #13 (Happy Sunday Ep.143) to Ep #244 (Happy Sunday Ep.375)
For readers who asked about links to videos of all English subbed 1N2D Season 1 Episodes, here they are:
