The first episode of SBS ‘Law Of The Jungle In Yap’ enjoyed a good start with a high viewership of 11.5% nationwide and 12.6% for the Metropolitan area according to Nielsen Korea. That puts it in first place ahead of KBS ‘The Producers’ and an MBC show which was shown in the same time period.
From previous updates, the first group led by leader Kim Byung Mun and 6 members had left for Yap on 27th April. Though there were some highlights on the rest of the members, we should see more of their challenges in the coming episodes.

Taken aback by the PD’s revelation that they had caught a poisonous frog, Bae Su Bin lets it out of the net.
It must have landed in Sang Hyun’s direction which startled him.
I was wondering how they would know where they were going since the jungle is so big and one could easily get lost. Perhaps with the help of a compass? They were following a stream which could at least provide them with water.
Hot and humid with plenty of mosquitoes, it was not an easy hike as the ground was uneven, steep and slippery with moss in some places. But finally they came upon a small clearing where they could set up camp.
Though the stream was mostly shallow with some deeper areas, it was teeming with large prawns and even eels which they could catch for dinner.
