Just Bananas About: Week of 2/27/12

I didn’t quite get around to watching another film but congratulations to The Artist for winning Best Picture, Jean Dujardin (The Artist) for the Best Actor, Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady) for the Best Actress.  Now I can’t wait to watch The Iron Lady.  In recent years, I’ve been fast-forwarding through the Oscars but Billy was really great and I actually sat through the whole thing.

Now onto this week’s Bananas.  And we say goodbye to the first season of 1 Night 2 Days.  Last week’s episode was filled with tears as the boys were surprised by a preplanned event set up with the help of 1N2D fans.  Last night’s episode was filled with some tears and lots of laughs.  And that’s exactly the note I want to leave this season of 1N2D on.

So the fans get a treat by allowing some stage time with their favorite boys.  The first winner will get to do a sexy dance with… Jong Min.  A number is called out and the audience insists that there is no one in the audience with that number.

So another number is called out and the audience member who was captured looking very nervous, actually gets chosen.  Well… she totally commits to the dance despite not wanting to be chosen.

Appropriately to HyunA and Hyun Seung’s “Trouble Maker” song.  Which ends up frightening Jong Min instead.

HyunA, Hyun Seung – Trouble Maker

현아, 현승 – Trouble Maker

After the impromptu fan meeting, the boys head to the base camp and spend one final evening together… Seung Gi tries to swing and fails miserably.  Guess that wasn’t something he learned as a kid on a playground?

Then the boys play a game that they haven’t played in a long time.  The Zombie Game.  The object of the game is for one person to escape the capture of the other guys/zombies who will be blindfolded.  Once captured, the zombies need to make the capturee say “Surrender” (aka Hang Bok).  The ones who last the longest without being caught will get to sleep inside.  Jong Min gets pretty ruthless, resorting to biting even after the capturee says that he surrenders.

The game was hilarious where Jong Min hit the pole in the middle of the room because he was blindfolded; Jong Min’s biting ripped a hole in Su Geun pants, right in the butt; and Jong Min got hit by Su Geun trying to sneak past him because he thought Su Geun already put on his blindfold.  Really, Jong Min was the highlight of this game.

As the boys get ready for bed and we’re reminded of the good times we had watching these boys be boys.  Missing the past members.  Kang Ho Dong and MC Mong hold a special place in my heart since they were apart of the cast when I first started watching the show.

Ji Won didn’t last very long and Su Geun lastest the longest, over 15 minutes long.  So Su Geun grants Ji Won immunity.  Seung Gi and Jong Min need to sleep outside and the weather is very cold.  -10 Celsius/14 Farenheit.  Brrr.

In the morning, “Choding” Ji Won has a hard time waking up.  And like the big brother he is, Tae Woong cradles him like a baby.

The cast and crew say goodbye and take pictures.

Luckily, us, fans will get to continue the 1N2D journey with Season 2 but we will miss you, Season 1 and all the laughter and entertainment you’ve given us over the last 5 years.  Thank you!
