July 12, 2018: IDBTB “Mascot Nayana.” Kang Daniel, we hope to see you again in Season 2
[HERALD POP = reporter Lee Hyerang] We can literally say that Kang Daniel was the mascot for It’s Dangerous Beyond the Blankets
. Whenever he came in contact with a cast member, there was great chemistry. He also showed great enjoyment in whatever he was eating, and he showed a great gift in conversation. Daniel’s daily hard work shone brightly until the last minutes of the show.
MBC’s entertainment show It’s Dangerous Beyond the Blankets ended Season 1 with the final tenth episode on the evening of July 12th. The last episode of the show featured a late-night get together of the homebodies of Danang vacation in Gyeonggi Province. At the invitation of rapper Loco, Wanna One’s Kang Daniel, HIGHLIGHT’s Yong Junhyung, NCT’s Mark, and actor Lee Yikyung gathered together. Loco also invited rapper Gray and Woo Wonjae.
The homebodies gathered in a vacation home and played games, such as spitting watermelon seeds, lemon eating contest, and fresh cream face bombing. They did activities that were no frills and simple but enjoyed themselves to the fullest and shared happy moments.
Afterwards, they ate together and discussed other idols they knew who were also homebodies. Kang Daniel said, “If they do another male show [DBTB], I know for sure I will be in it,” and showed his enthusiasm for the show. He has great affection for It’s Dangerous Beyond the Blankets, as it is Kang Daniel’s first entertainment show that he was cast in.
Kang Daniel has been a member of the original cast since the pilot of It’s Dangerous Beyond the Blankets. At that time, Kang Daniel was extremely lovable to any cast member he was with, and he was able to charm them like a “Chemi Fairy.” Also, his inability to do without/let go of his favorite jelly and his extreme jjajang/spicy ramen eating scenes showed a candid and earnest Daniel that heightened his attractiveness.
As Kang Daniel is the top trending popular idol, his casting alone created and increased the hype for the program. Gaining momentum from the hype and receiving a lot of love from the fans, It’s Dangerous Beyond the Blankets became a regular show.
Furthermore, Kang Daniel was also the first member to confirm his appearance as a regular cast member. He contacted the production team personally and expressed his intention to appear. It was because the show is very special to him, as he received so much healing from it, and he feels that the show also gives healing to the viewers as well.
Meanwhile, It’s Dangerous Beyond the Blankets, which showed the small but real happiness of homebodies via their fun and healing times, will return for Season 2. It is uncertain who the cast will be for the next season. However, as Kang Daniel proved to be an essential mascot the show cannot do without, it is anticipated that we will see Kang Daniel in Season 2.[s]
July 13, 2018: It’s Dangerous Beyond the Blankets PD, “Thank you, Kang Daniel”
[OSEN = reporter Yoo Ji Hye] MBC’s It’s Dangerous Beyond the Blankets successfully finished season 1, producer Lee Yoon-hwa in charge of the show expressed his appreciation for the ending of the season and the cast.
Q: “It seems that Kang Daniel has shown the essence of the program. Wasn’t he really busy when shooting for the show?”
PD: “You’re right. His schedule must have been tough. Nevertheless, even if he just came and slept, he seemed happy with that one thing. That side of him made the program’s mood alive, so we were so thankful to him. I clearly remember meeting him for the first time. Even before Produce 101 was over, I thought I had to cast him.”
“Even though we had the first meeting early in the morning, I thought, “What is this brightness/pureness that I have never seen?” (Laughter) He kept showing that aspect just like the first impression, and it was good to see. He is a person, but I felt that he is like white milk.”
“Despite that he has become a huge star, he has made friends in his own way here. It seem like he really got close to the rest of the cast. He could just do the “broadcast.” But instead, he didn’t think of it as a “broadcast” and had shown the genuine side of him. I feel grateful to Kang Daniel for that.”[s] [sosweetniel]
