Best Moments from THE ZONE: SURVIVAL MISSION Got Us Laughing Hard

Friday, October 14, 2022

If you’re a fan of Korean variety shows, you’re probably familiar with the comedic antics of Lee Kwangsoo and Yoo Jae Seok. But when Girl’s Generation member Kwon Yuri jons them, the trio becomes an unstoppable force that’s bound to have you rolling on the floor laughing. The Zone: Survival Mission is the gift that keeps on giving. From the first episode to the upcoming finale, the series is chock-full of hilarious scenes. However, with much difficulty, we’ve managed to narrow down our top 5 favourite moments of the show. 
1. Lee Kwangsoo’s Sticky Situation
The first episode of The Zone: Survival Mission truly sets the tone for the rest of the series. As if having to avoid being soaking wet in freezing cold weather and having to traipse through hurdles wasn’t hard enough, Lee Kwangsoo ups the ante by rolling on slippery glue and struggling to move, which turns out to be the highlight of the episode. From getting stuck on toilet seats to being plastered with ping pong balls, watching Lee Kwangsoo struggle to make it through the episode is slapstick comedy at its finest. 

2. Strong, Independent Men Woman
Kwangsoo and Jae Seok’s attempts at portraying a strong masculine image are totally shattered in this series. Not a single episode goes by without the boys calling for “Yuri-ah” to get them out of a difficult situation. Whether it’s carrying a block of ice or staving off a ghost,The Zone: Survival Mission would’ve ended a lot more abruptly without Kwon Yuri. 

3. The Pen is Mightier Than the Sword
Kwon Yuri’s determination to get through each survival mission successfully is commendable, especially when she is stuck with a duo who are ready to quit at any moment. As she tries to motivate her teammates, her targeted and witty quips never fail to hit their mark against her less-than-motivated counterparts. Her unexpected jabs and deadpan expressions constantly stun the duo and leave the audience thoroughly entertained. 

4. Zombies with Standards
Getting eaten by a zombie is probably everyone’s worst nightmare but for Kwangsoo and Jae Seok being rejected was an even worse prospect. After getting transported back in time to a village full of the undead, they were forced to hold out against the zombies. However, Kwangsoo and Jae Seok soon realised that they were never in trouble as they ironically didn’t meet the zombie’s beauty standards. The prey became the predator as the male duo persistently tried to get the zombies to bite them. 

5. The Entirety of Episode 4
As if having to quarantine isn’t hard enough, try having to isolate yourself in a haunted house. When the trio arrived at a quaint-looking house they immediately expected an easy mission, but they soon discovered that many spooky surprises awaited them. From Kwangsoo grabbing onto Yuri’s legs to hearing grown men scream every two minutes, the entire Survival Zone episode will have you in stitches. 

Whether you enjoy watching reality shows or you’re just in the mood for a laugh, The Zone: Survival Mission is definitely the series to catch. With the finale premiering this week, watch all the episodes streaming on Disney+ Hotstar here.
