- 2016 – Babel 250 (aired on tvN as a Cast member)
Lee Ki-woo was a cast member on the variety show Babel 250. The show’s title is based on the story of the Tower of Babel and the 250 different languages currently in use in the world. The show features a cast of four men and three women from different countries, such as South Korea, Brazil, France, Thailand, Italy, Russia, China, and Venezuela, who live together as an experiment while speaking in a shared language in order to create a universal one. The show was first aired on July 2016 on tvN, and the concept of the show is a global language project showing what happens if six foreigners live together with one native and must create a ‘common language’, not just Korean or English.
Lee Ki-woo shared his experience on this show and felt that communicating had become much easier, and they could tell what other people wanted from their eyes and expressions. Besides that, he also learned a lot of things and began to understand many languages although their nationality was not that important since they initially communicated using their own language, and some language interpreters also assisted the cast through things like hand-phones so they could acquaint themselves with each other. The cast members also had to elect a leader every day, eat their meals together, and attempt to work together in community life so that they could gain a mutual understanding of each other. The cast members seemed to struggle in the first three episodes while they were getting to know each other, but then, they showed some improvement in the fourth episode by forming their new language.
