On April 26, Weekly Idol celebrated its 300th episode by having its longtime MCs, Jung Hyung Don and Defconn, as the guests. (Former idol MCs of the show returned to do the emceeing.)
Jung Hyung Don and Defconn teamed up as a musical/comedy duo Hyungdonnie and Daejunnie in 2012. When asked about the secret to their longevity, Jung Hyung Don joked, We strictly divide the income 1/N. And when we are not promoting, we dont meet up. We dont eat the same table.
He added, There arent a lot of members in Hyungdonnie and Daejunnie but theres one person who secretly goes to promotional events. He also films commercials and goes to events on his own, outing Defconns secret activities.
Defconn said hilariously, It must have been urgent for that person.
They also revealed that it was Yoo Jae Suk who chose their group name. When he came to record Olympic Road, he gave us our name, Defconn said. The nominees were Hyungdonnie and Daejunnie, Yoo Jae Suk and Boys, and No Muk Sa (a short version of the Korean for People Who Eat Songs).
Jung Hyung Don said, Thanks to Yoo Jae Suks foresight, we were able to mature for six years as a group. If I ever work with another heavyweight producer, I will request another team name from him.
