One of Korea’s longest running variety shows, ‘Infinite Challenge‘ will be temporarily taking a break from airing for 2 months!
The MBC variety show was confirmed by their production team to be off the air for 7 weeks starting on January 28th. The producers intend to go on a “normalization period” and will be airing a pilot program and special editions of the show with clips from previous episodes.
Main producer, Kim Tae Ho has informed local media that the production team will use this time to organize and revamp the program. Kim PD stated that, “We intend on continuing to hold meetings and shooting new episodes, so it would be wrong to call this period a ‘break’ or a vacation.Rather, we are dedicating this time to go through a normalization period. We aren’t doing this to produce something grand either, but rather to rediscover our show’s true original colors.” The producers will take this time to work together to bring new ideas to the program. Kim then concluded by stating, “It usually takes two weeks to prepare for a project, but we have to air the show each week. … I just wish to take enough time to provide fun and worthwhile experiences (for the viewers).”
The show first aired in 2005, and has continued strong for the past 10 years. Let’s hope that with this time given to regroup and organize, the team comes back stronger than ever in the new year!
