The Infinite Challenge members are traveling into outer space to Mars on this week’s episode of the hit variety show. This week’s episode featured special guest Shim Hyung Tak as each member is given a box in which they can pack what they think they will need during their stay on Mars. They all dramatically record final messages to their loved ones as they pack and prepare for their trip to space.
Haha’s wife Byul helps him tape his segment at home. She asks him from behind the camera, “Are you really going to space?” Haha replies as he looks around the room, “Yes, I’m going to space.” Haha then says, “Our wedding album!” and grabs it to put in his box. “You never even look at that!” laughs Byul. He then looks straight into the camera and says, “Honey. Get in the box.” “No thanks,” she says, bursting out laughing again as he pulls the box over towards her.
Infinite Challenge is a Korean television entertainment program, distributed and syndicated by MBC. Infinite Challenge is recognized as the first "Real-Variety" show in Korean television history. The program is largely unscripted like Running Man and follows a similar format of challenge-based Reality Television programs, familiar to some audiences in the West. The challenges are often silly, absurd, or impossible to achieve, so the program takes on the aspect of a satirical comedy variety show rather than a more standard reality or contest program. In earlier episodes, the show's six hosts and staff would continuously proclaim that, in order to achieve its comedic purposes, the program was 3-D: Dirty, Dangerous, and Difficult.
