‘Infinite Challenge’ heading to U.S.The popular prime-time TV show “Infinite Challenge” is scheduled to visit the United States early next month to film special episodes.
An insider told Ilgan Sports, an affiliate of the Korea JoongAng Daily, on Tuesday that all the cast and production team will leave for the United States in the second week of June, but the source did not comment on details of the shows that will be filmed there.
With the news of “Infinite Challenge” heading to the States, many local entertainment news outlets have been releasing related news, saying the team may reunite with Hollywood star Jack Black.
Black appeared on an episode of “Infinite Challenge” earlier this year.
His appearance on the show was mainly to promote his film “Kung Fu Panda 3,” but the episodes featuring Black garnered stellar viewership.
Black and the team of “Infinite Challenge,” which consists of mainly comedians, including Yoo Jae-suk, also promised to see each other in the United States sometime in the near future.
Meanwhile, the production team of “Infinite Challenge” is reportedly being cautious to keep the theme of the show a secret.
Many of the show’s themes have been leaked even before airing, and the show has changed the main ideas for some previous episodes.
“Infinite Challenge” first began airing in 2006. Although some of the show’s cast has changed over the years due to various scandals, it is still one of the longest-running reality TV shows in Korea.
Each week, the cast of the show is challenged to various given tasks, such as eating a bowl of noodles while riding on a roller coaster.
