1박 2일 1N2D Harbin

I thought that Kim Joo Hyuk's decision to leave the program would affect 1N2D's group dynamics but while we all miss Gutaeng hyung's charming awkwardness, the remaining members and the whole team behind Season 3 continues to one-up itself.  This episode proves why the show totally deserves its Viewers' Choice Best Program in last year's… Continue reading 1박 2일 1N2D Harbin
