Jack Black Takes on ‘Infinite Challenge’ in South Korea

Jack Black will take on a new challenge during the Asian press tour for his new film "Kung Fu Panda 3."

"I have accepted the challenge," Black said at a press conference in Seoul on Jan. 20, announcing that he will be a guest on the unpredictable South Korean variety show "Infinite Challenge."

"I'm very scared because it's the biggest challenge," Black said. "There's no number larger than infinity, so I don't know what's in store for me. I just hope that I survive. But I shall face it like a brave warrior."

In a preview for the episode, titled "School of Variety," Black can be seen partaking in the show's signature games, including pillow fights, balance battles, conga lines, as well as a rendition of "Gangnam Style" with the show's cast. The episode was filmed on Jan. 21 but airs Jan. 30 in South Korea on MBC.

"Infinite Challenge," often billed as South Korea's first variety show, has been on the air for more than 10 years. It has hosted Korea's most popular stars, as well as international celebrities such as tennis champion Maria Sharapova, soccer player Thierry Henry, and Paris Hilton.
