Under the theme, events -- including performances and large-scale choirs -- are designed to cross the line between stage and audience by encouraging the participation of mentally disabled people. Such messages will be delivered through advanced media technology at the ceremonies.

Infinity Challenge Winter Olympics Special fixed games

Infinity Challenge Winter Olympics Special fixed games

Infinity Challenge Winter Olympics Special fixed games?

Infinity Challenge was taken aback by the ski ramp challenge results of the Infinity Sangsa office workers.

On the January 21st episode of MBCs Infinity Challenge, the office workers of Infinity Sangsa visited Pyungchang, Kangwon-do for the lunar new year.

Infinity Challenge Winter Olympics Special fixed games?

Director Yoo Jae Suk of the company suggested climbing the 120m ski ramp with their bare hands. The difficult challenge of the 90m ski ramp last year came to mind but they headed to Pyungchang.

Jung Joon Ha had leg surgery done so he was left out of the challenge. Surprisingly the Infinity Sangsa workers had an easy time climbing the ski ramp with all the snow that covered the ramp.

Members said, When you see it on T.V. it seemed like it was really hard but what was shown last year must have been an exaggeration. This one next to us is much higher. The members were also impressed saying, This is totally easy. Then they said, Its all an exaggeration on T.V. Were real and brought laughter to the viewers.

Infinity Challenge put on screen an article titled, Infinity Challenge Winter Olympics Special a fixed game!! and had the viewers laughing once again.

Yoo Jae Suk then said, I dont know how to end this and Jung Joon Ha said, It was icy then and its snowed now, explaining the difference.
