The press conference for the 3rd season of 'New Journey to the West' took place on January 4 (KST) with cast members Kang Ho Dong, Lee Soo Geun, Eun Ji Won, Ahn Jae Hyun, Kyuhyun, and WINNER's Song Min Ho. During it, Na PD said about casting Kyuhyun, "In Kyuhyun's case, I thought after watching him on 'Radio Star' that he was funny and good at MC-ing. So I wanted him to play the role of arbitrator during filming. Those wishes got swept away quickly. This [show] had nothing to do with ['Radio Star']. In reality, he ended up just playing the guy who looks capable on the outside but isn't much on the inside (or "Heo-dang")."

Kyuhyun also said on this day, "I have no idea what I filmed when I came back. But I know that the power of editing is strong. Please enjoy watching." 

'New Journey to the West 3' begins airing January 8!

Kyuhyun is literally afraid of everything that moves. I mean, he ran away from chicken.

If this is a reality show, why the hell does the PD give roles? Shouldn't he be casted, or any of the guests based on their actual personalities? Kyuhyun has been in the MC game for some time now and Radio Star is not just his gig so basing his skills on one show alone is misguided.

every member has their role in each show. for example who is smart, strong, like to talk, something like that. maybe what PD-nim means is he want someone who can become an arbitrator, he think kyu is suitable for that role so he casted kyu. it didn't mean that the show is scripted or what.

Variety shows need good and bad roles to make it interesting. Would Infinity Challenge be that funny if Park Myung Soo didn't start conflict at all?

kimmiefonze chelle203 Tuesday, January 3, 2017

I get what you mean its just that this is Kyuhyun, not some rookie who is new on the game. At this point, if you are a good PD, you should already know what your guest is bringing on the table, not just based on one show. And based on other Korean variety shows, they are big on throwing unexpected stuff to the guests so if Kyuhyun fell flat, the PD shouldn't have been disappointed.

Do you know who is Na PD? He is a PD of a popular shows like 2 Days 1 Night, The human condition, Star golden bell, Grandpas over flower and three meals a day. But you forgot about something, he is a human, human have the right to fell something like happy, angry, sad, disappointed etc.
