The March 4th episode of the MBC show aired a special where the 'Infinity Challenge' cast looked back on the series. Yoo Jae Suk discussed the New Zealand special 'Ice Expedition', saying, "That was when 'Infinity Challenge' had viewer ratings below 4%. That's why we suggested we take it outdoors. The show's survival depended on the New Zealand special."

Jung Jun Ha added, "There were a lot of ups and downs that episode. It was supposed to take 16 hours to fly there, but it took 27 hours." Yoo Jae Suk continued, "When we got to New Zealand, the filming fell apart too. That's why we covered it up with a 'rolling paper' segment, and that's when 'Infinity Challenge' really got popular."

Does anyone remember when 'Infinity Challenge' wasn't that popular?

RM popularity was crap at the beginning too. I don't see why this matters in the grand scheme. Only crazy kpop fans automatically latch on to untested things, ie sm fans.

That New Zealand episode was from their first years. It's crazy how far this show has come! I don't know what I would do without MuDo, I literally grew up watching it! It truly is SK's greatest show :)

I watched this show since the very first episode where they played tug of war with a bull and I'm glad they didn't cancel this show. This is the best show in Korea!
