SBS’s “No Math School Trip” is a new variety show starring EXO’s D.O., Zico, Crush, Jannabi’s Choi Jung Hoon, Lee Yong Jin, and Yang Se Chan as they take on various missions and games at a school field trip destination. The show is helmed by former “Running Man” producing director (PD) Choi Bo Pil.
When asked about why they decided to star on the show, D.O. shared, “When I first received an offer to appear on ‘No Math School Trip,’ I was really happy because it felt like going on a trip with friends and hyungs that I enjoy [being with].” Crush added, “I was a bit hesitant because I had never been a fixed cast member of a variety program before. However, after hearing PD Choi Bo Pil’s story of what the concept and members will be like, I felt certain, thinking, ‘Wow! I think I will make really fun and valuable memories.'”
On the difficulties of filming a fixed variety program, D.O. stated, “The difficult part is that I had a hard time because I kept laughing too much.” Zico shared a similar sentiment, adding, “The most memorable event was playing a betting game on the snow-covered fields. I am really clumsy when it comes to physical games, so I couldn’t stop laughing while seeing myself get flustered.” Choi Jung Hoon revealed that although he was burdened at first, he felt really comfortable without any hardships when filming actually began. He elaborated, “In particular, I remember talking comfortably with Yang Se Chan while at the hot spring bath.”
Regarding the cast’s exceptional chemistry, Crush shared, “Kyung Soo (D.O.) and Ji Ho (Zico) also put everything down, and it felt like I really went on a school trip with my close classmates, so the chemistry was really great.” Zico joked, “If you watch the broadcast, you will be able to see six people working harmoniously to the point that it’s awkward to be making a distinction between the two older members and the four same-aged 92-line members.”
The teaser for “No Math School Trip” revealed the members having a blast playing games on the snow. D.O. shared, “It’s my first time seeing that much snow since I was born. The endless snowfall was really fascinating, and I think even the sound of stepping on the snow in Hokkaido felt different. The games enjoyed in the snow were all really enjoyable as if I had returned to my childhood days.” Crush added, “For the games enjoyed in the snow, I tried really hard to win because I have a bit of a competitive streak, but my body wouldn’t listen to me. Playing in the snow took up more energy than I expected.”
When asked to pick one member who was especially entertaining and one member they thought they could beat in terms of being funny, D.O. replied, “Jung Hoon had unexpected sides to him, so I’m looking forward to it a lot. On the other hand, I don’t think there is any member I can beat. I definitely can’t beat them.” However, Crush picked D.O. as the member who excelled in being funny, explaining, “He makes his counterattacks with those clear eyes,” while also modestly adding there was no one he could win against. Zico similarly picked D.O., saying, “This friend’s talent isn’t just acting, singing, and dancing.” Likewise, Choi Jung Hoon also picked D.O., joking that he could see madness in those bright eyes. Choi Jung Hoon said, “I felt that he’s the real deal.”
Finally, the four cast members asked viewers to anticipate the program and to tune in to the show. “No Math School Trip” will premiere on March 9 at 9 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
