‘Infinite Challenge’ to elect leader
In order to tackle a problem with declining viewer ratings, the show’s production team came up with the election event and invited viewers to elect the next leader of the show.
Launched in May 2006, “Infinite Challenge” has gained a solid support base from viewers throughout the years under the direction of producer Kim Tae-ho and comedian Yoo Jae-suk.
Six hosts used social media and offline campaigns to make their policies known. And through the campaign process, each host mocked various aspects of contemporary Korean politics, such as negative campaigning or corruption.The election result will be revealed in the upcoming Saturday episode.
