<1N2D>, which used to record over 30% of ratings, showed a distinct decline in its second season. With the popularity of its new competitors <Dad, Where Are You Going> and <Real Man>, it has been a while since <1N2D> became the least popular program. It seemed that the glory of the first season failed to continue – it was due to the similar structure and disharmony of its characters.

Through repeated member changes, they tried to change, but their same old games were not enough to retrieve the viewers who are submersed in innocent kids and men in military uniforms. The last episode of season 2 ended with low ratings of 8.4% after such struggles.

And on December 1, the first episode of <1N2D Season 3> was aired. Since its casting process was not smooth, the online reception was not very favorable. The structure of the program – going on a two-day trip and playing survival games – was no longer attractive to the viewers.

Moreover, the list of finalized cast did not create much issue. Not many people expected them to perform better than the last season – until it was aired that is.

 

The result was better than expected. It recorded 14.3% of ratings – 1.5 times that of the previous week, becoming the number one program of the same hour. Its games and elements were same – what could have made the ratings differ? The answer is simple. Each member had clear character, and the situations made by such characters were refreshing. Of course, it had the advantage of being the first episode of new members.

In season 2, they lacked the individuality of the members. Bringing famous actors and singers into the entertainment program only to show them introducing tourist spots and eating good food is sure to be boring for the viewers.

In season 2, they lacked the individuality of the members. Bringing famous actors and singers into the entertainment program only to show them introducing tourist spots and eating good food is sure to be boring for the viewers.

But in season 3, such boring process has become entertaining. Kim Joo-Hyuk, who tried the entertainment program for the first time, showed his swollen face and mocked himself. Defcon, who is already a familiar face in entertainment programs, created interesting situations without sticking out.

The youngest member Jung Joon-Young also showed his unique character and created fun situations by not minding the older members. He showed his preferences by asking, “Can we stop by the barber?” And as Kim Jun-Ho handed him a cup of coffee, he said “I don’t drink iced coffee.”

The process of creating individual roles and characters goes in line with the success of the first season. ‘Alive characters’ that season 2 lacked are starting to appear in the season 3.

It would be essential to keep the viewers’ attention for the success of the season 3. In order to do so, they have to create a great combination of unique characters. For now, they have made a good start.
