Haha suffers from insomnia due to "Infinity Challenge" filming
Haha, a singer, entertainer, and a regular member on the show “Infinity Challenge,” confessed that he experiences insomnia the night prior filming for the hit show. Haha recently appeared as the special guest on KBS 2TV’s “Win Win” and revealed that for the past seven years, he has had difficulty sleeping before filming for “Infinity Challenge.”
He also explained that he experiences insomnia every Wednesday while his body anticipates the show’s filming day, which is Thursday. He stated, “You know for the viewers, it’s 90 minutes of fun, but for the cast and crew it’s 18 hours of nonstop filming. Wednesday is the night I don’t sleep, and at first I thought it was just me, but other members have confessed they suffer from insomnia the night before as well.”
Haha also revealed that he enjoys filming for the show but confessed that being in character mode for such duration is an added stress. He also added that it is a battle amongst the regular members and guests to be the funniest on screen in order to get more screen time.
For the past ten weeks, “Infinity Challenge” has not been airing due to the strike against MBC.
