It’s been years since I watched KBS variety show 1N2D, which has been buzzed about a lot in the last two months thanks to being the meta platform in the same network drama Producer. I was eager to watch last week’s “Girlfriends” themed episode, where the male cast members each invited a female friend, thanks to the unexpected participation of Moon Geun Young as actor Kim Joo Hyuk‘s friend for the day.

She returned to her normal low key life outside of acting projects so it’s such a treat to see her bright and charming presence onscreen again in 1N2D, getting all the male cast members excited and bringing her competitive A-game to the proceedings. It also felt like a double treat when Cha Tae Hyun brought Park Bo Young as his female friend guest, allowing the two talented acting gems brighten the show with their beaming smiles.
