Uhm Tae-woong’s inauguration as 1 Night 2 Day’s sixth member aired on March 6, 2011 to positive responses and solid ratings.The show starts off with the regular five members’ introduction. Kang Ho-dong (the main MC) introduces the new member, but Uhm Tae-woong is nowhere to be found. PD Na tells them that he told Uhm Tae-woong that filming started at 11. The members are furious and yell in protest saying PD Na is showing favoritism because he’s a famous actor. PD Na informs them that it’s their mission to wake Uhm Tae-woong up, wash him, dress him, feed him, and bring him back to KBS within an hour!
The members, with Uhm Tae-woong’s manager as the guide, drive to his house and give him a surprise, 1 Night 2 Day style introduction. Uhm Tae-woong wakes in utter shock and disbelief as he tries to cover himself up with a (leopard print!) blanket…. Because he’s in his boxers.
It was a cute episode, and Uhm Tae-woong was a lot better than I imagined. Since this was his first episode, all the attention is on him so there’s no need for him to do anything unique on his own but rather be himself and try his best. I can see Uhm Tae-woong fitting in well with the guys because he seems like this quiet person who has an 엉뚱한* side.
Best of luck to Uhm Tae-woong! I have faith that you’ll rock! Now, if you haven't watched the show yet, what are you waiting for!? You're missing out on some adorable Uhm Tae-woong moments!
Oh, I forgot to mention…. He has a nice body *drool*
*엉뚱한 is an adjective that is a combination of unusual, wacky, unexpected. Usually, people like this make others laugh because they'll do something out of the blue that is weird, and they, themselves, don't realize it while they're doing it.
