Fall is by far the best season for fashion and with Seunggi making multiple wardrobe changes in recent episodes, I can’t help but to comment!  And for once, Cody is sticking to stylish but simple.  And love how he’s using a lot of layering, definitely a must during the fall, both function and fashion wise!

Outfit 1 ~ I loved Seunggi’s awesome trench coat especially the unique bunched collar, even despite the appearance of the fedora hat again!

Outfit 2 ~ Plaid shirt underneath the trench. Very Cha Dae Woong!

Outfit 3 ~ Yellow hoodie, black vest, and newsboy cap. So colorful! Perfect!

Outfit 4 ~ Charcoal t-shirt underneath yellow hoodie. Seunggi really has an amazing upper body; don’t get why he’s so shy about it! Shirt could be more fitted, right?! Still feels a bit too big for me. But Seunggi in tshirt is always good!

Outfit 5 ~ Another hoodie/vest combo, plus new patched corduroy newsboy hat. Not liking the hat at all. But love the continued hoodie/vest thing!

Ok, the main purpose of this post! 1n2d Seunggi highlights…
Much longer than expected… too many epic Seunggi moments!

The guys will be traveling to Mahn Jae Doh island by boat. 6 hours! PD Na insists the further islands are more lovely as they are less populated and their natural habitats are more intact! The guys groan but smile and make the best of it.

As the guys head on to the boat, some people call out to Seunggi, “Let’s shake hands once.”  How can he say no?! He totally makes their day…

On the boat, PD Na informs them the waves are super high today.  Guys all groan, remember their past sea-sick trips.  Also, they’re told that they must hop on to smaller boats out at sea later on since there’s no big docking place at Mahn Jae Doh…

They’re briefed about their individual missions.  The guys have to collect the food they will prepare for dinner.  They play Pictionary to determine the order for choosing.  Crew member DaeJoo is the artist for the game.

SooGeun gets the first answer right.  Seunggi gets the second answer correct, which ironically happens to be his recent rival KBS drama…

Ha, Seunggi couldn’t believe he got it right!  Not sure if he was more surprised in getting it right or that it just happened to be his rival drama!

Game ends with choice order:  SooGuen, Seunggi, Jiwon, Hodong, and Jongmin.  2 missions are on land, other 3 at sea.  Of course SooG and Seunggi choose the land ones.  The guys decide to rest up since they still have 4+ hours to go…

Omg Seunggi and his fedora hats; they’re like security blankets to him! Already warned that the waves were going to be terribly high, it gets really bad.  I felt SO bad for the guys.  I’ve been seasick and it’s a horrible feeling!  There’s no escape until you basically throw up, take some meds, try to sleep, and get to land!

They finally make it to their destination, the point where they have to jump on to smaller boats for the rest of the way.  Headed in the same direction, Hodong and Jiwon are first sent out on a boat together.  Poor Jongmin who came in last place has to go boat fishing!

Seunggi and Soog are sent out on a boat together, and once they reach land for their missions, the guys can’t help but to dance with excitement for not having to be out at sea! So cute. I was so super excited and happy along with them!

Omg, something about Soog and Seunggi together is just so cute! Maybe it’s the height difference or just their overall “look and personality” difference! Ha. Anyway, the guys are uber happy to be on land.  Soog even teases their 2 PDs, asking if it’s just chance that senior staff PD Na and Cameraman Ban were assigned to the land missions…

By the way, I just loved Seunggi in the bright yellow hoodie and black vest!

Soog has the potato mission and Seunggi’s assigned to drying kelp mission…

And the mission didn’t sound too bad but then you see all the kelp and the fact that you have to lay them out one by one to dry, standing up and down again and again…

Omg, such hard work!  Those elderly women divers were amazing.  They’d been doing it for like 50 years! Seunggi was really amazed at how much work went into what the guys regularly see in their ramen packets!

While working, he said “I will definitely value kelp more when I eat it from now on.” Seunggi had a great attitude as always. Really makes us love him more, no?!

Looking at all the kelp makes him think of a story he heard ~ A guy had a dream and 7 pigs appeared. If one pig appears it’s daebak but to have 7 show up, the guy thought it must really mean something.  So he takes out all his money and spends it on lottery tickets.  But he ends up not winning anything.  He sat to eat ramen noodles and found 7 pieces of dried kelp in his packet.

Dead response from PD Na! He’s like yeah, so what. Seunggi’s like, just looking at the kelp made me think of that.  PD Na seemed unconvinced and Seunggi insists he did not make this up, that all the kelp reminded him of that story! PD Na’s like okay okay. The 2 guys talking together was very cute.

Seunggi and Soog finish up their missions and decide to check out the area and go for a walk and it’s absolutely gorgeous. I’m jealous that Soog got to take that lovely walk with Seunggi… unfair. But I’m sure the guys had a good time catching up.  They’re rarely paired together and I bet Soog totally had Seunggi laughing the entire time with his hilarious jokes…

The scenery, music, and editing were all so awesome during their hike/walk. And I liked that you couldn’t actually hear what they were saying… for some reason, it was even more touching that way. Aww. 1n2d editing is always so seamless and amazing! Wish they’d give PD Park and Strong Heart some tips!

The 2 guys make it to the top of the rocks where’s theres greenery and wildflowers.  It’s just so pretty. Again, unfair that Soog gets to share this moment with Seunggi!  They see Hodong and Jiwon coming in by boat and call out to them…

Jiwon and Hodong return back with oyster-like goodies.  Kudos to them for their hard work.  They were like archaeologists on their mission!  And Hodong really had some cute moments. He can be so cute when he’s not overdoing it! He was working really hard to keep himself and the cameras entertained!

Base camp. Exhausted. They take a nap. Later in the evening, time to cook the food they collected. Seunggi, Jiwon, and Jongmin wander out in the village to borrow some ingredients and spices.

Seunggi goes to see the diver ajumma from the kelp mission. She’s thrilled to see him and gives him a big hug! In return, Seunggi gives her a prepared box gift from the 1n2d team and also sings for her and dances with her. He sings Will you Marry Me, Because You’re my Woman, and also threw in a bonus song- Mujukwon! Ajumma was like a giggly little girl and afterward gave him another big goodbye hug…

Back with the ingredients, the guys start cooking.  Seunggi is in charge of the sweet potatoes and kelp.  He starts peeling the potatoes in an interesting way which kind of worries the other guys…

But Seunggi knows what he’s doing. He peels the rest in a less dangerous manner!

And more than that, Seunggi proves he’s gotten quite good at cooking now! Ha.

I loved this sequence of Seunggi cooking his Glazed Sweet Potatoes dish! Seunggi was so focused and confident! I admit I was nervous when I saw that the guys would be cooking their dinner.  Was trying really hard not to think back to Seunggi’s cringe worthy past cooking disasters on 1n2d. But Seunggi was a pro! I think those Chung Jung Won CFs really helped his cooking confidence and skills.  For Real!

And I just loved this caption! After Seunggi got the Baker King Kim Tak Goo answer right during the pictionary game, it looks like the PDs smartly made a connected storyline on this during the cooking time. Again, even more funny because his drama My Girlfriend is a Gumiho was up against Baker King! It’s also KBS.

I haven’t seen Baker King, but based on a few short clips and seeing Seunggi so focused here while cooking, it made me think he probably would’ve done a great job playing the Baker King role too! But thankfully he did My Girlfriend is a Gumiho! I’m still waiting for news of the DVD! Hope it’s soon!

Seunggi also boiled the kelp. Not very difficult to do, but considering his past cooking experiences on 1n2d, he was very proud at how it turned out…

But he was super proud of his Glazed Sweet Potatoes dish and so excited that all the hyungs liked it so much!

Seunggi said “It’s been a long time since I was complimented for my cooking.”

And even Jiwon gave him an encouraging pat on the back. Aw. So cute…

Seunggi was so happy and proud of his cooking because people liked it, that he wants to share the Glazed Sweet Potatoes dish with all the staff too…

So even though dinner is wrapping up, Seunggi gets busy preparing some more of his special Glazed Sweet Potatoes for the staff and crew…

Early on, when Seunggi was feeding PD Na the potatoes,  he said he’s had plenty that he didn’t need anymore. But while Seunggi was finishing up making more, PD Na popped into the kitchen and then followed Seunggi and his dish!  And also hung around to finish up the leftovers… Ha ha ha.

Omg, I want some of Seunggi’s homemade Glazed Sweet Potatoes! Seunggi and his sweet potatoes were making the rounds as popular online search items.

Something about the way Seunggi eats makes everything look SO tasty! While the guys ate their dinner, Seunggi mentioned that the food was even better because they worked on collecting and then cooking their own food. Plus, it’s amazing how Seunggi has a way of making eating with his hands still look proper and of good etiquette!

I really love this whole sort of pure foods aspect of 1n2d! And just love seeing the guys prep and cook their food.  More on the rare side among Korean guys, although slowly changing!

And omg, Seunggi looked SO young in some parts of this ep! I really think it’s that haircut, and plus he can’t help his cute baby face! He can look so mature and older at times and then at other times like like a little kid, all in one episode broadcast!  Hope we get more of  a non-kid looking Seunggi even though it’s still very cute!

Next week’s episode looks to be pretty funny. They go fishing, do some fun quiz game, and more running for their morning mission. Want to see why Seunggi’s fishing was so daebak!

  1. Very funny that it was Seunggi who got Baker King Kim Tak Goo right. Really cute too when the Baker King background music was being played while he was cooking the potatoes. Really, really love Seunggi in 1n2d. This is where we get to see him cook, wake up, eat, do his beauty routine lol…1n2d fighting!

  2. Thank you so much for posting this! haven’t seen the 2d1n episode yet but will watch it raw since i know little whats going on. then watch on kbsworld.

    seunggi is so cute. i like him so so so so much! wish i could go to his concert.

  3. Dear Ann,
    Thanks. This episode looks like a keeper (on my ext. hard drive).
    Love your comments about SG’s eating manners. How does he do it? With bare hands (usually), standing or crouching, terrible settings, he manages to make the food look so tasty. Love the way he chews too. I want to cook for him!

  4. can’t wait the KBSW version…
    agree, his outfits are getting better and better!
    it’s a year ago when he made cooking disaster “beer can chicken”, he must have studied a lot about cooking! LOL
    so cute how proud he was with his food! i want his sweet potatoes too! XD

  5. Thanks Ann for the recap. Luv it.
    A few things came to my mind when I watched it yesterday;
    The boat ride – I think back the time when the wild monkey was not affected by the seasickness.
    When they were cooking – miss Mong there. First time they are cooking after Mong’s hiatus.

    Oh, and also wanna say;
    I knew the answer was Baker King when DaeJu drew the bread & the crown. So glad Seung Gi got it right, together with me. hehe
    Love Seung Gi’s yellow hoodie.
    And lastly;
    Today I went to buy sweet potato fritters for tea, closest thing to glaze sweet potato…hahaha.

  6. i realized i dont really like his hairstyle..
    i like his hairstyle from 2009 concert.. T_T
    from the 1n2d opening, he really looks like a kid to me..

  7. Thank you very much for the recap, really enjoyed reading it. I like Seung Gi’s look best in the Outfit 4 pic, he looked so handsome. Hope to watch this episode with eng subs soon !

  8. I like 1n2d cause the staff and the members all got heart in making a great show…great chemistry, and this episode is no exception…and now RM is doing well on its own, no doubt that it will be a future rival to 1n2d again like FOs1, and it would push the show to make a greater episode, thats why I love the rivalry between them, it makes both of the show becomes better… :)

  9. All the cooking scene reminds me with MC Mong, and also all Seung Gi Clinging into him when cooking, miss their brotherhood

  10. with this experience, SGi will have more confidence in cooking in the future… what else that SGi can’t do? kekekeke….. I don’t eat sweet potato, but if SGi cooked it, i will eat it… hehehe….

    And PD Na… you really love our boy/man, isn’t it? ^_^
    don’t be so obvious…hahaha…. he was on the land with SGi & SGeun.. did he plan that way? hahaha…

    And following behind SGi after he cooked the 2nd time for the staff? Kekeke…too obvious PD Na…

    I still can’t forget the time when they have to fall asleep in 1/2hr and when PD Na tickle SGi’s ear, and when SGi woke up, the caption(‘SGi-ah, it’s me’ and with a love shape) on the tv really makes me wonder if PD Na is in love with our boy/man..hahaa….

  11. We need to add PD Na to the list of PD fanboys in Seunggi’s life which already includes PD Park from Strong Heart who’s already registered at the official Airen fan cafe! ha ha ha.

    and don’t forget —
    1n2d’s PD Shin, Hodong, the PDs who’ve filmed Seunggi’s CFs and later write about uhm-chin-ah Seunggi… and the list goes on and on! ^___^

  12. Oh Yon! I love sweet potato and I’m trying to make some the way he made it. Does anyone here know was it sugar or salt that he sprinkle on the sweet potato while cooking it?

    I just love watching Seunggi on 2d1n esp. the way Ann recap it.

    Thanks Ann!

  13. To add on the list of SG’s PD fans, the original 1N2D PD Lee who left to study jazz music (what an interesting person!).

    In the first few episodes SG’s on, that PD was always pressing SG to sign on longer terms with 1N2D.

    I guess you know it when you see something genuine and great. And PD Lee, wherever you are, you’be been so right!

  14. i always love 1n2d – we really see the very natural side of seunggi!!!! – love it!!! thanks for sharing! ;)

  15. His skin is flawless!!!

  16. im glad Seung Gi chose MGIG over BK.. ive seen BK and Yoon Shi Yoon fits the character very well.. im not yet prepared to see Seung Gi beating out guys brutally.. it just doesnt fit him..
