In the episode of tvN’s “New Journey to the West” show aired on August 8, the cast members of the show engaged in the wake-up mission, a hit or miss game, and film title quizzes. 

In the episode, SONG MINHO made everyone burst into laughter by revealing his talent continuously in the wake-up mission, hit or miss game, and film title quizzes. He tried his best to succeed in a “protecting bananas” mission, but the bananas were half split, so he was rebuked by the producing staff of the show, to create a hilarious scene. 

SONG’s nickname of “idiot” continued in the hit or miss game. He failed to say the right answer to every four character idiom quiz, to make everyone burst into big laughter. Notably, when the staff said “obi”, whose right answer was supposed to be “obi-irak” which is a four character idiom that means “A pear drops as soon as a crow flies from the tree”, SONG said “Larger” (There is a famous beer brand called “OB Larger” in Korea), to live up to his nickname of “idiot”. 

In a quiz in which the cast members had to say famous lines in famous movies, SONG made everyone burst into laughter. He imitated Lee Byung-hun in movie “Inside Men”, spinning a virtual prosthetic hand out and said “Watashiwa Akumada” (I’m a devil), which is a famous line of movie “The Wailing”. 

As such, SONG MINHO made everyone burst into big laughter, showing an unprecedentedly fun characters as an entertainer to live up to the great anticipation of the staff of “New Journey to the West”. SONG MINHO’s full-blown talent as an entertainer is making him the best entertainer in Korea, in collaboration with producer Nah Young-suk.

[#W_NEWS] 170718 MINO’s Dream of New Journey to the West’ was Accomplished..WINNER X Youth Over Flowers

[TV Report = Reporter Lee Hye-mi] Will it be able to draw Mino’s big picture of Winner’s ‘youth over flowers’ appearance?

In TVN New Journey to the West’ broadcast on the 18th, the monsters had time to release the Dragon Ball.
Time to release the dragon ball bet on the dream. Mino’s wish was Winner members to appear on ‘youth over the flowers’. He said “We used to talk a long time ago very often.” “We want to appear in the Youth over Flowers.”
So Soo-geun said, “I should have told people that I wanted to be in New marriage Diary. My wife and I will live like a new-marriage life again. “and then people laugh hard.

What is the wish of Kyu-hyun who joined the army after shooting? He said, “When I am dismissed, I wish I will be able to join you guys in a family-like heart without throwing me away.” So all the monsters were touched. But there was a condition here. It means that ‘New Journey to the West’ must maintain the people’s attention as now.

For his, Kyu Hyun challenged the mission. The mission was to guess the soju brand. But he is also aware of the different strengths of soju as well. What about the results? In the great success of Kyu-hyun, the monsters cheered all at once. Kyu-hyun also showed his ceremony in his body as if drunk. The moment integrated into the drunken men. In particular, Eun Ji-won said, “I think there is a God you believe in.”

Now all they need to make a wish is a single bead. This mission was Mino’s. and he should set up a water bottle. In the difficult mission, the monsters said, “It will be a miracle if he succeeds.” But when Mino succeeded in the mission during practice, he showed his hope.

However, Mino failed after shouting ‘challenge’. Therefore, the monsters were able to all-in their fortune and create a chance to reap the rewards, and Mino succeeded in the mission. The last laugher was the monsters.

[#W_NEWS] 170719 ‘Youth Over Flower’ & ‘Kang’s Kitchen of ‘New Journey to the West”, a Small Ball Shot up by Producer Na Young-seok

It all began at the time when SONG MINHO got the nickname of “Finger Song”. In an episode aired on June 21, the staff of “New Journey to the West” show including producer Na Young-seok gave the cast members a “frozen corpse” game. The cast members had to complete a mission within time limit without bending their arms. If they succeed in fulfilling the mission at once, they could pick five out of the items written on a dartboard and three items if they succeed at the second trial. Before picking an item on the dartboard, they had to make 15 turns first and pick the item they wanted exactly with the tip of their finger coated with ink. 

The staff of the show of course made a joke with the dartboard. Most of the gift items written on it were sponge and foreign luxury cars were written on a tiny tip of the board. 

But the cast members excelled the staff. SONG MINHO was turned out to be a dark horse. Generally, people cannot pick a tiny spot on a dartboard with the tip of their finger after making 15 turns. However, SONG MINHO succeeded in picking the tiny spots with foreign luxury cars exactly twice. 

SONG MINHO’s success made producer Na Young-seok kneel down in front of the cast members. Na said “let’s have a dream and hope” instead of the foreign cars whose prices exceed 400 million and 600 million won. Then, he promised that he will make any TV show that the cast members want possible, weather it is “Kang’s Kitchen” or “Youth Better than Flower”, if the cast succeeds in collecting all seven “dragon balls”. 

When the cast members succeeded in collecting five dragon balls, the staff made the cast members talk about their wishes. Eun Ji Won said he wanted to have a full set of VR game console; Lee Soo-geun wanted a latest mobile phone; Kang Ho-dong wanted two sets of Interstellar; Ahn Jae-hyun wanted a camcorder; and SONG MINHO wanted “Youth Better than Flower” show with WINNER members. 

After two more rounds of the game, the cast members succeeded in fulfilling other missions including hitting a liquor bottle and making water bottles stand. Finally, they collected all the dragon balls needed to realize their wishes. The staff of the show mentioned “Youth Better than Flower” and then “Kang’s Kitchen” show, promising that people will be able to see “Youth Better than Flower” and “Kang’s Kitchen” in “New Journey to the West”. 

On July 19, “New Journey to the West 4” said, “spin-off episodes of New Journey to the West show will be planned. Not only SONG MINHO’s ‘Youth Better than Flower’ but also ‘Kang’s Kitchen’ will be realized. Other than that, the detailed items, as well as the schedule ad form of the broadcasting have yet to be determined”, to raise fans’ anticipation for the spin-off.

[일간스포트=박정선 기자] New Journey To The West is the most unique out of all the shows made by producer Na Young-suk. Viewers can often hear beep sounds inserted to hide the curses, and it is more about showing how the cast hang out rather than their travel to China. There are no fixed rules, and the cast members literally say whatever they want.

In Season 4 of New Journey To The West, the cast head to Vietnam instead of China. The subtitle of the season is “Apocalypse Now”. Lee Soo-jeun dressed up asPiccolo, a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series, and EUN JIWON became Sun Wukong, a Super Saiyan. They really went for saying whatever that came into their heads. Once, Na Young-suk had to apologize on his knees because they won the chance to ride a Lamborghini as a prize.

The viewing rate is lower than Na Young-suk’s other shows, but New Journey To The West is the best in creating issues. Just after the show began, New Journey To The West became No.2 in the contents power ranking.

However, the unique quality of the show all came from producer Shin Hyo-jung. She worked with Na Young-suk from his 2 Days & 1 Night days, a member of his original crew. She is known to be quite a fanatic, so much so that she even came back to Seoul to attend Seo Taiji’s concert in the middle of shooting the 2 Days & 1 Night show. We met Shin Hyo-jung to find out how her fanatical side led her to making such a great show.

-It seems as if Kang Ho-dong is not acting tough any more.

He doesn’t try to be the emcee or act like an older brother or a leader. He is more than 20 years older than MINO, but he likes to hang out with MINO the most. He always shares his room with MINO. MINO also seems to be comfortable around him. If you meet Kang Ho-dong in person, he is the funniest guy in the world. He is a great emcee and is funny on TV, but I want the viewers to see that he is really a funny person. He doesn’t like it when people feel uncomfortable around him. He wants them to come up to him and make jokes at him. He is actually younger in mind than most of the young people. He can even do girl group dances. People say that he’s enjoying his second glory days, and I think that his attitude is a big contributor. When he thinks that it’s time for others to shine, he takes a step back. He knows how to make others stand out too when doing a show. That’s a great strength.”

-When Lee Soo-keun put on the Piccolo outfit, we knew that this season is going to be a hit.

Lee Soo-keun never stops talking. Not even for a second. Even when the cameras are off in the bus, he becomes the DJ. He plays songs, throws quizzes, and play pranks. If he says one funny thing on the show, that means there are 99 other funny things he said that didn’t come on the show. He is also good at doing little dramas. When people look tired, he says something funny to cheer them up. When the crew has to do after-shooting work in Korea but don’t have the energy to start, we say “Let’s watch Lee Soo-keun’s part and then start”. He is the funniest person on the show. On the other hand, Kang Ho-dong is a bit conscious of the camera. When the cameras are turned off, he goes quiet. However, Lee Soo-keun doesn’t stop talking regardless of whether cameras are on or off.  He’s a true comedian. His life mission is to make people laugh. After he started wearing the Piccolo costume, he didn’t take off the antennae even after the day’s shooting was over. “

-MINO is in the center of spotlight this season.

We didn’t expect him to shave his head. We chose Lamborghini as one of the prizes because we played the game before and thought it was impossible. They just took home a lot of sponges. You can’t make a situation like that. He was very lucky.”

-It seems that MINO has a talent for being funny.

I don’t think he has talent, but he is real. We put a lot of thought into whom to pick for the new member because the cast is like family and they have to blend in. But he is real. He is true to his feelings, and he cares about looking cool like most people in his age. But he likes having fun and he doesn’t care about looking scruffy on TV. He even used the expression “hell disgusting“ in front of Na Young-suk and writer Lee Wu-jung. He listens when Kang Ho-dong talks. He is comfortable around Kang Ho-dong, but his eyes are full of mischief.”

[스포츠조선=최보란 기자] SONG MINHO in “New Journey to the West 4” show has already surpassed his character as an idiot in the last season.

In tvN’s “New Journey to the West 4” show aired on June 20, SONG MINHO surprised everyone by setting higher-than-expected records in every game. In the process, SONG MINHO broke away from his past nickname of “idiot”, showing an upgraded character and making everyone burst into big laughter.

In the episode of “New Journey to the West 4” aired on June 20, the cast members engaged in a competition of correctly guessing the names of famous people over Vietnamese home meal. If someone asks “Brad”, the other members had to answer “Pitt”. Many wrong answers were given and the members began to feel worried. Eventually, the cast members of the show decided to attack the one who gives the wrong answer with bad language and resolved their will to win the foods.

Another round of game began and SONG MINHO answered “Ano”, not “Marceau”, to a question “Sophie”, to embarrass everyone. Then, SONG MINHO nonchalantly insisted that there is a person named “Sophie Ano”. The other members searched for “Sophie Ano” on the Internet, but failed to find out anyone with such a name and Kyuhyun hurled abuses at SONG MINHO as promised, to create a hilarious scene.

Before beginning the next game, the members changed the rule, saying, “Let’s not openly say the words that cannot be broadcasted. Let’s just say them in a whisper directly into the ear”. In the next round, Kang Hodong gave a wrong answer to “Galileo Galilei”. While everyone else was hesitating to swear at Kang, SONG MINHO silently approached him and gave him a whisper. Kang was dumbfounded and said, “That was a curse I’ve never heard of”, to make everyone burst into laughter.

That was not the end. In a game of pinpointing a tiny spot on a dart board after making 15 turns, SONG MINHO exactly pointed the intended spot in every turn, to rise as “the finger of the God”. Eventually, SONG even pointed a spot where the production staff of the show jokingly wrote a gift of a luxury imported car. The show’s producer Na Young-seok had to kneel down to cancel the gift. The staff gave five dragon balls and a coupon to grant a wish instead of the car worth 600 million won, to make an apology and make the cast members feel triumphant.

In the previous season of “New Journey to the West” show, SONG MINHO created hilarious scenes by wearing the clothes of a girl’s character in cartoon after losing a game and confessing his hair loss in another game of picking the most unhappy person to have the best lunchbox. In a four-character word quiz, SONG MINHO gave a series of hilariously wrong answers to make everyone burst into big laughter and gained a nickname of “SONG idiot” following Ahn Jae-hyun who boasted his innocence in the four-character word quiz in season 2 and Kyuhyun who faced big difficulties early in season 3.

Producer Shin Hyo-jeong of “New Journey to the West 4” show said in an interview with Sports Chosun, “MINHO and Kyuhyun got a lot of new nicknames. You will be able to see their new characters in the new season. They have become even more upgraded while fulfilling existing expectations for them. SONG MINHO fully reveals his new fun character to the extent that his nickname of ‘idiot’ might be forgotten. He was so popular among the cast members”.

In fact, SONG MINHO boasted even further upgraded wit and humor, shaving his head after losing a table tennis match against Kang Hodong and frightening the staff with one finger. The outstanding wit and humor of the youngest member SONG MINHO fully blown in two episodes of the new season of “New Journey to the West” show is proving the production staff’s outstanding discerning eyes once again.
