Watch: Cha Tae Hyun, Hong Kyung Min, And Samuel Perform Collaboration Track On “2 Days & 1 Night”
On the February 17 episode of KBS’s “2 Days & 1 Night,” viewers got a taste of Cha Tae Hyun and Hong Kyung Min’s new musical project with Samuel!
Cha Tae Hyun and Hong Kyung Min have previously released music under the name “Hong Cha.” In December, “2 Days & 1 Night” held a parody special based on “Immortal Songs” and Cha Tae Hyun expressed the wish for Hong Cha to collaborate with the music producers Brave Brothers.
Brave Brothers agreed and produced the song “People” for the duo, with Brave Entertainment’s Samuel featuring on the track and creating part of the choreography. Cha Tae Hyun joked, “It’s not that Samuel is featuring on the track. He has half the parts. We’re featuring on his track.”
During the “2 Days & 1 Night” episode, Brave Brothers and Samuel joined the cast at a rest station to hold a surprise mini-showcase. Before they performed their new track, the show featured footage of Hong Cha recording the song with Brave Brothers and practicing dancing with Samuel.
“We called ourselves Brave Hong Cha because of the producers’ names,” Cha Tae Hyun said. “If any other producers want to work with us, we will attach their names in front in the same way. If [Yoo] Hee Yeol wants to work with us, we can be Hong Cha’s Hee Yeol, and if [Yoon] Jong Shin wants to work with us, we’ll be Monthly Hong Cha [a reference to Yoon Jong Shin’s monthly single project].”
Jung Joon Young, who was watching the showcase, said, “I think other singers would have wanted this song. The quality is very high.”
The production staff then made a bet between who could chart the highest within one week: Kim Jong Min’s group Koyote or Cha Tae Hyun’s group Hong Cha. The loser of the bet will have to go into the water as punishment.
