Kim Jong Min gave his take on how Kang Ho Dong, the head of the first season of 1 Night, 2 Days, and Kim Seung Woo, head of the second season of the show, are different.
The singer talked on the October 16 broadcast of KBS2′s Win Win.
When asked which he felt more comfortable around, Kang Ho Dong or Kim Seung Woo, Kim Jong Min smiled shyly and said, “The question is a bit too much.” He showed he was treading carefully due to Kang Ho Dong, since “he has to work when he comes out.”
He soon answered, “Before my release from my military duties, Kang Ho Dong was like my friend. Later, though, I came to look up to him. A wall suddenly popped up between us, and he became like my teacher.”
About Kim Seung Woo, he said, “He′s almost like a friend.”
Lee Su Geun asked whether Kim Seung Woo could become like
Kim Jong Min continued to praise Kim Seung Woo′s leadership on 1 Night, 2 Days, saying, “He gathers everyone in get-togethers after shoots so that we can talk about the shoot, and he sets up chat rooms in phone messengers.”

Kim Jong Min and ‘1 Night 2 Days‘ PD Choi Jae Hyun showed the trust they have in each other.
Choi Jae Hyung PD appeared as a surprise guest on the October 16th installment of KBS 2TV’s ‘Kim Seung Woo’s Seungseung Jang Gu’ (aka, ‘Win Win’).
Choi PD said, “When ’1 Night 2 Days Season 2′ was being organized, I thought that Kim Jong Min should obviously stay. So I just wrapped it up by texting once ‘Jong Min, you’re gonna stay on, right?’ I did hear that Kim Jong Min was in a slump but I didn’t worry about it because I knew Kim Jong Min as a person for over 10 years.”
However, Choi PD also shared some things Kim Jong Min might improve upon his great feel for variety. Choi PD said, “There are times he just runs by himself too much. He needs to ease off a little to go together with the members.”
Kim Jong Min explained himself remembering when he had returned after serving his military duties and could not adjust to ’1 Night 2 Days’, “I work hard thinking of when I was lacking” and brought laughter to the viewers.

MC Mong and HaHa have been friends for more than 10 years, strengthening their friendship through various programs they participated in together. Even though MC Mong had been keeping low since two years ago due to the controversy surrounding military enlistment, he rushed to HaHa’s father-in-law’s wake on the 15th as soon as he heard the news. He paid his respects, comforted HaHa and Byul shortly before quietly leaving.
Yoo Jae Suk also attended the wake and stayed for over 3 hours, greeting others in HaHa’s place. Gil and Gary were the first ‘Infinity Challenge’ and ‘Running Man’ members to pay their respects, and Park Myung Soo and Jung Jun Ha rushed over immediately after their schedules, with other members coming to offer their condolences later on as well.
Kim Jong Min revealed, ”In my second year of high school, my father, who was a taxi driver, passed away suddenly due to an unfortunate accident.”
He continued, “His sudden death was a huge shock and I cried for several days and nights. Everything was like a dream and I felt despair.” “I suddenly became the head of my family so I didn’t know how to lead the family and was at a loss about what to do. I took on many odd end jobs including working at a calendar factory and a clock factory,” he said and revealed that becoming a dancer was one of the jobs he fell into to help make money for his family.
MC Lee Soo Geun, who Kim Jong Min has known for a while through ‘1 Night and 2 Days‘, said, “I’m finding out many things for the first time about Kim Jong Min.“
SBS has now revealed that he will have his first ‘Star King’ shooting on October 29th, and the episode will air on November 10th.
PD Jang Hyuk Jae, the same PD for ‘Family Outing‘ and ‘X-Man‘, will be joining him on the same day. There will be a lot of changes as Boom will be moving as a fixed panel member, Park Mi Sun will be leaving, and Leeteuk will be enlisting. However, despite the rumors of a format change, the program format will stay the same.
Netizens expressed their happiness and commented, “I’m already looking forward to his return date“, and “Everyone is happy with his return“.
Kim Jong Min mentioned his father for the first time.
Kim Jong Min appeared on the October 16th installment of KBS 2TV’s ‘Kim Seung Woo’s Seungseung Jang Gu’ (aka, ‘Win Win’) with MC’s Kim Seung Woo, Tak Jae Hoon, and Lee Soo Geun.
On the program, Kim Jong Min opened up to say, “My father passed away suddenly when I was 18 years old.”
Kim Jong Min said remembering, “My father was a taxi driver then he wrapped that up to open a sashimi restaurant by the seaside. There was a high tide and he had an accident trying to park. My uncle was in the car too but because the force of the water was so strong they couldn’t get my father out.”
Kim Jong Min shared, “I think that was the time I cried the most in my life. It felt like the whole world was a dream. It felt like a lie. The tears didn’t even come at first. Once I confirmed that it was my father, the tears started to come.”
Kim Jong Min was only 18 years old and he wasn’t the kind of kid that actually listened to his father. Kim Jong Min confessed, “I talked to my father only over the phone the day before he passed away. My father told me to go to school. I used to skip school to go dance and stuff. After my father passed away, I was hurting but on the other hand, I felt that I became more solid.”
But Kim Jong Min also shared, “I also felt victimized because of my father’s death then and I even blamed my father.”
Kim Jong Min shared that he has a special relationship with Kang Ho Dong.
Kim Jong Min will be appearing as a guest on the October 16th installment of KBS 2TV’s ‘Kim Seung Woo’s Seungseung Jang Gu’ (‘Win Win’).
Recently at the pre-recording of the program, Kim Jong Min said about Kang Ho Dong, “Kang Ho Dong hyung is the variety teacher that I respect and lean on the most. When I was in a slump and was having a hard time, he helped me think positively and had his trust in me. That’s why I was grateful too him and also felt bad”, revealing that Kang Ho Dong was a positive influence on him.
MC Kim Seung Woo asked Kim Jong Min, “Did Kang Ho Dong contact you when you were working on ‘1 Night 2 Days Season 2′?” and Kim Jong Min answered, “I received a text that said I was working hard and doing well. But I called him after that and he didn’t answer and wasn’t able to reach him for a while.”
Kim Jong Min then added, “But a while ago I saw that he was talking to HaHa on the phone and I was angry for a moment” and brought laughter to the studio.
