In an earlier episode of KBS2TV’s “1 Night, 2 Days,” the members expressed their New Year resolutions for 2014. Among the goals, actor Kim Joo Hyuk had said that he wanted to quit smoking in 2014, stirring agreements from the other members. However, the members never would have thought that a future episode would require them to film for two full days without smoking. The March 9 episode of “1 Night, 2 Day” followed the members on a no-smoking trip, with each member being closely monitored, even being followed by a staff to the restroom. Out of all six members, actor Cha Tae Hyun was the only one who did not smoke; thus to be able to fairly implement the rules for the next two days, the actor’s friend and smoker, singer Hong Kyung Min, became a special guest for the no-smoking episodes. So what were the rules? The members were not allowed to smoke, and if they were caught smoking, they would have to fully submerge in to the icy cold ocean water
