Infinite Challenge ep 360 – Introducing My Lonely Friends
Invitations are handed out to prospective guests for next week’s My Lonely Friend special.
Planning and Direction: 5
Very straightforward plot for this week, film the members handing out invitations to their lonely celebrity friends. The first part of the show with the comedian guests went well, but the last part with the two actors were awkward and went on painfully long.
The captions were pretty good this week, being especially sarcastic toward the first few lonely friends that were featured.
Yoo Jae Suk : 7
Jae Suk had to carry the vast bulk of the show all by himself, and did well during most of the segments. He was also the best member during the weak parts at the end.
Park Myung Soo: 4
Was teamed up with Hyung Don, and the two were almost completely edited out, although that may be due to the fact that the guests they delivered invites to weren’t the most entertaining bunch to begin with.
Jung Jun Ha : 5
Although he had a lot of airtime being teamed with Jae Suk, Jun Ha seemed out of it (weak from dieting maybe?) and didn’t really put much effort into his performance.
Jung Hyung Don: 4
Edited out with Myungsoo.
Ha Ha : 5
Edited out a lot as well, only appearing in one segment before the group shoot at the end, but did well in his limited time interviewing Yang Pyung from the Faces.
No Hong Chul: 6
On Team Jae Suk alongside Jun Ha, Hong Chul was the more on the ball of the two. Had some pretty good jabs at Jae Dong and Ji Sun’s lonely existences.
Nowhere to be seen until the very end, his only contribution was walking onto the set and complaining that Hong Chul got more attention than he did. Not sure if he was edited out completely, or was busy during the invitation filming.
A lot of guests this week, including but not limited to Defconn, Kim Young Chul, Ji Sang Ryul, Kim Jae Dong, Park Ji Sun, So Ji Sub, and Lee Dong Wook.
Defconn, Sang Ryul and Ji Sun were probably the pick of the bunch, while Ji Sub and Dong Wook were given too much time relative to their variety skills.
Episode MVP: Yoo Jae Suk
Final Grade: 5
The first half was fast-paced and pretty solid, but the second half was a drag, which resulted in a mediocre episode on the whole.
