Scroll to bottom for previous ratings…

I’m still amazed how Seunggi can look older at times, then a few minutes later, look like a little kid!  Same goes with his CFs.  He’s some mom’s adorable son in one CF, an ideal boyfriend in another, and the older brother you look up to at other times.

Last week’s 1n2d, Seunggi showed off his manly side by working hard drying seaweed and showcasing his cooking skills with his much buzzed about glazed sweet potato dish.  Yet still managed to look like a little kid while deliciously eating the fish with his hands!  And this week’s episode was no different. He was like a little kid at some points, and like a manly guy at other times.

Okay, some Seunggi highlights from this 1n2d episode…

The guys finish eating the delicious dinner they prepared themselves.  PD Na shows them a bucket of freshly caught fish and says the staff caught a bunch in a short amount of time.  JongMin decides to try out the night fishing.  Seunggi and Soogeun check it out soon after and find Jongmin’s already caught some fish.  Seunggi in particular is super excited to try some fishing…

But some fans may recall, fishing (along with cooking) are not Seunggi’s best talents!  Jongmin gives Seunggi some quick lessons on Fishing 101, and then Jongmin starts catching fish immediately.  Hodong suggests a fishing BokBulBok game to determine sleeping quarters, with one of the staff joining in to make it 3 on 3.

Seunggi suggests Singers vs. Comedians teams.  Seunggi just wanted to make sure fishing guru Jongmin was on his team!  Hodong calls in DaeJoo for their team.  Game starts.  30 minutes to see which team catches the most fish.

Immediately, Soogeun catches a fish, as does Jongmin.  Then Soogeun starts putting on a one man show!  He just dips his fishing rod and is able to reel in a fish!

Unfortunately, Seunggi and Jiwon weren’t so successful.  At least Jiwon caught some baby fish but Seunggi was totally out of luck… agh, this part was so sad to see.  Each time the fish would catch the bait and Seunggi tried to reel it in, the little clever fish were able to get away.  It was SO sad…

Especially when they played sad music while a very earnest looking Seunggi kept persisting, trying not to get defeated.  So sad.

Even the VJ felt bad for Seunggi…

After 20 minutes, still no fish for Seunggi.  Desperate, he asks Soogeun if he can use his fishing rod…  and voila ~ Seunggi catches a fish right away with hyung’s rod!  And omg, he is SO excited!

I was so happy when Seunggi finally caught a fish.  I was feeling SO sad for him up to this point.  Fishing is hard; it’s about a certain feel.  My dad and I used to go a lot when I was a little kid and it’s not easy.  But when you do catch something, it’s a total thrill!

Okay, game ends.  Comedians (25 fish) vs. Singers (15 fish).  Seunggi,  Jongmin, and Jiwon have to sleep outdoors for losing.  The guys get ready to head back to basecamp to sleep, but Seunggi says he wants to hang out and fish a bit longer.  Hyungs tease him that now that he knows what it feels like to catch a fish, he’s totally into it.  Everyone leaves and only Seunggi and one camera VJ remain…

Seunggi ends up catching several fish. I think it was his way of relaxing.  The guy is so freaking busy and never goes out to eat or hang out publicly, unless for an event!  I remember him saying in an interview that 1n2d is a way for him to sort of de-stress, and that traveling every other weekend can be exhausting but also very fun.

Anyway, after catching the fish, he returns all the fish back in to the water.  Liked how he did that!  He told the fish they had gone through a lot that day and they had a caption with the fish saying “Bye oppa!”  Ha. Very cute.

Seunggi was feeling super content after fishing.  He joked that he may just show up again at Mahn Jae Doh next weekend to fish, saying it was so much fun…

Meanwhile, the hyungs are back at basecamp hanging out.  They joke about Seunggi being out there alone and how he’s really into fishing now that he caught something.  And knowing how Seunggi-related 1n2d news always tops the headline stories every Monday, the hyungs joke about the potential 1n2d Seunggi news headlines that will come out from his fishing ventures…

PD Na says Seunggi is on his way with fresh cut fish (sashimi), saying that since Seunggi insists on feeding them, it’s not like they can refuse!  HA.  Aw, PD Na, we know how much you so loved his glazed sweet potatoes from last week!  Not only does PD Na love Seunggi, he also loves his cooking now too!

Back to Seunggi ~ he brings the fish over to the ajumma and ajusshi so they can scale and cut the fish into sashimi pieces.  They are very skilled and Seunggi gets to try some right away.  He always makes food look so yummy…

Seunggi asks if he can try cutting the fish, saying he thinks he can do it.  And Ajumma assures him, “What wouldn’t you be able to when you even do harder things like acting.”  Aw, Ajumma is so sweet!

While he cuts away, she tells a story about her friend who totally adores Seunggi, and basically buys every single product that he endorses and does CFs for.  Her friend even went to the cosmetics store to try to get a big picture of him costing over $100, but was told that she can’t purchase the life-size picture of Seunggi as that is a store display! Ha. And then they flash Seunggi’s The Saem life size cut out on the tv screen!

Seunggi asks how old her friend is and the Ajumma says her son is 27 years old!  LOL.  Omg, Seunggi has enough ajumma fans; they need to show some younger fans in their teens, 20s and 30s because he has lots of these admiring fans too!

Seunggi does a great job on slicing the fish, which by the way is not easy… it’s definitely a culinary skill!  Anyway, Seunggi is SO excited with his knife-fish skills!  He’s like Ajumma, look.   And again, she responds matter of factly but with adoration, “Of course you can do a good job, you even act!”

Afterward, Seunggi brings the fresh sashimi back to the hyungs, and like his glazed sweet potatoes, he was super happy again to see them enjoying his food…

The guys decide to finish off the evening with a fresh ramen noodle soup snack.  But of course, PD Na has to make this into some Bokbulbok game!  The guys aren’t too thrilled at first but listen to the gameplan…

Bokbulbok game ~ Ahp-jah-bee (Informant) Quiz, based on Soogeun’s 1n2d character name that Hodong gave him a while back.

Directions.  The guys give clues to their team members in an Ahp-jah-bee, informant-like, quiet, secretive manner.  A member from the other team listens in from behind.  The person to get the answer correct first wins a point for their team.

It’s Singers vs. Comedians again.  3 vs 2.  First up was JongMin trying to figure out the answers from Jiwon’s clues.  Next up is Seunggi…

And Seunggi, like usual, kills it in the game/quiz.  He gets 3 in a row correct.  1) Woo-luck, 2) Nam-Dae-Moon, 3) constipation.  Ha, SooGeun playing the Informant role, out of all people didn’t get “constipation” correct!

Frustrated, Hodong switches places with SooGeun and takes on the Informant role and gets the next answer (Cho Young Pil) correct…

Okay, next up is Hodong giving out the clues and Soogeun trying to answer.  And Seunggi as the Informant.  And this is where all the crazy hilarious laughs begin.  I was laughing so hard just watching the guys laugh so hard! And this is where Seunggi made the 1n2d-related Monday morning news headlines as…

“Human Roof Lee Seung Gi”

It was all the more funny because pretty much any small thing was cracking up the guys at this point.  Trying to stay quiet and play the game in a silent way was just too much for them!  Seunggi takes his place as the Informant over by the door and the guys tease him about the big piece of tape blocking out the brandname on his shirt…

 

Ok, I don’t even know why that’s so funny but I’m laughing hysterically watching the guys laugh!  And at this point, everything is just funny!

Seunggi leans forward and his face is basically right in front of the camera; totally the opposite from Soogeun earlier on who is way shorter!  And the guys think this is SO funny which makes me feel like this is SO funny…

As the game is about to start, Informant Seunggi hangs on to the door entrance and stretches forward to get in good position to hear Hodong better and read his lips, just like how Soogeun did earlier on.  Jiwon remarks how much longer Seunggi is compared to Soogeun, causing the guys to bust out laughing…

And we all know how Seunggi loves it when his hyungs find him funny!   But in his usual way, he’s not doing anything crazy but just stretching forward in a more exaggerated way, and of course this gets the hyungs laughing again…

The guys get a hold of themselves and start the game again.  And Informant Seunggi has his game face on, changing up his positions to get a better listen and look at Hodong to figure out the answer…

Informant Seunggi bests Soogeun and the Singers team wins the evening snack bokbulbok game.  Answers…

1) Knee Cap Guru (Soog)
2) Fly (LSG)
3) King Sejong (LSG)
4) Kang Ho Dong (Soog)
5) Bank (LSG)
6) Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter (Soog)
7) Batman (LSG)

Hodong was so funny.  The dude does not know how to whisper!  And the guys could not stop laughing in between the quiz items!  Seunggi was all seriousness and hilarious at the same time.  His various informant poses made Soogeun uneasy and cracked up the hyungs…

Singers team win home-cooked seaweed oyster ramen soup, and they tempt the older Hodong and Soogeun to come out and watch them eat…

Unfortunately, the Singers team still have to sleep outside.  I so hate to see the guys have to suffer sleeping outside like this.  It looked like a rough night…

Morning music goes off and Seunggi bounces awake.  Ha!  Never gets old…

Morning Mission ~ Find BaekGoo the dog and take a photo together.  First 2 winners get breakfast.  Soogeun is exempt because he won the individual fishing game the night before.

Seunggi goes out looking for the dog.  He calls out for BaekGoo, whistles for the dog and makes noises for him to come out.  And sure enough, Seunggi’s able to find the dog first and his first words to the dog, “Ah, ahn-yeong!”  So cute.  And the happy dog responds back with love…

Okay, prepare yourselves for cuteness overload as a just-woken-up Seunggi makes multiple attempts to take a photo together with a very adorable and squirmy but happy BaekGoo the dog…

Seunggi, Hodong, and Soogeun get treated to the winning delicious, freshly prepared morning breakfast.  And it’s like a 6-course breakfast, with a natural, no added ingredients, tasty seaweed soup as the main entree…

The food must have been really good or the guys must have been really hungry, because they barely said anything while they ate!  Closing ment with a freshly dressed and fashioned Seunggi…

Will we ever get to hear Seunggi’s 2 OST songs on 1n2d anytime soon?  Is it a SBS-KBS issue?  Come on KBS, SBS is laying on the Seunggi love thick.  He’s even finally doing a music show and it’s SBS Chocolate recording this week over KBS Sketchbook.  Can’t wait for that broadcast!  ^____^

  1. thank you very much! I understand more after reading your recap. I heard about KBS-SBS issue before but I wonder what it is exactly? Can you explain

  2. Dear Ann,
    Thanks a lot. After watching the raw feed, your recap helps so much. Though I think I am starting to pick up some words now, ha ha ha!

    Seung Gi has won over Jiwon quite some time ago already (not easy, Jiwon being Jiwon the Idol Team Captain). And he so wants Soogeun’s approval. I always feel there is a resistance on Soog’s side because he’s best friends with Mong and they felt HD was very partial to SG. But SG just adores Soog. I hope the two will have lots of opportunity like the walk last week to bond. And best wishes to Mong.

  3. Thanks so much for the recap, you have done a wonderful job as usual and I really enjoyed reading it. My Mondays are no longer “blue” as I have something to look forward to (same goes for Weds when I read your recaps of SH).
